Life in Quarantine has been so very interesting.
I work from home now. I have to cook EVERYDAY (lol), I can wear my pajamas all day if I wanted to, I have gained weight from eating too much and not having enough recreation, I spend more time with my family now!…….and best of all…..
I STARTED A YOUTUBE CHANNEL
God alone knows how I mustered up the courage to do it!!!!
At the beginning of quarantine here, my boyfriend looked at me and said “Abeo now is the perfect time. It’s time to start!”
And that same week we recorded 2 videos for release the following week! We have now done 5 episodes and 2 short videos of encouragement and the channel is growing beyond our very expectations!!!
It has been such an exciting journey!! Go check it out here – Change your Perspective. Just like this blog 😊.
Wooowwwww. Walking in purpose is soooooo exciting!
But it doesn’t come without its battles.
This morning was hard. I had a mental battle that left me in tears while in my bathroom and through my tears I cried out to God to help me!!!!!! I felt so overwhelmed by fear and doubts in my mind.
Then just like that, in my spirit, I began to hear SCRIPTURE VERSES. And it made me bawl and cry more!!!
“Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death, I will fear no evil. For thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, THEY COMFORT ME!”
“Thou preparest a table before me IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES. Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. Surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow me ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE……”
Living for Christ is hard. Don’t fall for the gimmicks. Many of us will be blessed and be happy and walk around with joyful smiles on our faces.
But it won’t last always.
There are days when you will feel as if God is not there and all hell is breaking loose around you.
What do you do on those days? You stand on the Word of God.(click on the link!)
So many Christians do not understand the importance of STUDYING the Word of God. Not just reading it by the way! The Word says to ‘Study to show yourself approved.’
Because in the tough times…….that is all you will have to hold on to.
I needed that reminder and reassurance that God was with me always and that He would not let the enemy destroy my life.
” Though a host should encamp against me, MY HEART SHALL NOT FEAR. Though war should rise against me in this will I be confident!”
My story doesn’t end there.
After crying my eyes out, I came to the revelation that the battle I was fighting wasn’t against the enemy….
It was against my own mind.
It was against things that my mind needed to let go of from my past.
Old torments that had begun to make me feel as if everything had come back and God had forsaken me!
So the Holy Spirit used the Word to reassure me that I was not alone. He reminded me that I did not have to be afraid of the enemy. I didn’t have to be AFRAID of anything!
Sighhh……….So I got up, wiped my face and went back into my bedroom.
And right there on my bed was my phone blaring my ‘Wake up’ alarm. But you won’t believe what my alarm ringtone is….
SWEET VICTORY by Trip Lee.
You guys……this one blew my mind!!!!
I had just been in the bathroom crying and begging God to give me understanding. And here He was……answering my prayer.
You have the victory my love. Sweet victory. 😭❤
Whatever you are facing today, I am here to remind you of this one thing.
You have the VICTORY
Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, we are saved, we are redeemed, we are free! And the plans of the enemy cannot stand against God’s plans for your life.
Walk in your victory today. And keep doing what He has called you to do.
No matter what.
