A word of encouragement

Fear can magnify trouble WAYYY out of proportion. What you've already imagined the outcome to be and what you've already allowed yourself to get sick over--doesn't even happen!

Why do we do this? .....Cause we're human. (2 Timothy 1:7) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

(Hebrews11:11) Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.....NOT SEEN! If you can "see" it...then that's not faith. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? (Romans 8:24)

When you come up against things that are going wrong and the devil  starts whispering to you. Just know he is a big, fat liar!  (John 8:44) When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

When he tells you that you are not valuable...You can best believe that your price is far above rubies!!

When he says nothing good is ever going to happen for you....It is & It will!

When he says no one loves you.....God loves you and you have a host of friends, family members and people that you don't even know watching you, because they admire you!

In the book of Isaiah God promises-- I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight.  Trust and believe he will do what He has promised.

(Numbers 23:19) God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Spend time reading His Word and in prayer...and re-new your relationship with God. Feed on His Word until your spirit is saturated with it. Then when the ole lying devil comes running his mouth--telling lies. Use your sword (The Word of God) to fight back....but you can't fight if you don't know His Word which holds His promises. You'll also find when things do go awry that you're able to handle the situation better.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 1Peter 5:7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

Just a word of encouragement....
Keep holding on Baby!!

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
