Wintry Seasons

…Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10 NLT

Good Morning! A new day with a fresh start and a renewed attitude of thanksgiving.

If you are in a season in your life that you wish would just be over, know that victory is guaranteed when you stay close to God. Our faith must be unwavering when the trials and tribulations hit hard.

I emphasize prayer because it is our best defensive move against Satan who always has the gameplays to destroy.

I emphasize strong study of the Word of God because it is full of deliverance and amazing miracles performed for real people just like you and I.

Believe me, God did not create us to be full of despair. Even so, we must experience trying times in order for spiritual growth and development to occur; just as babies are dependent on their parents for their every need.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face TRIALS of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1: 2-3

God has great blessings in store for you as you remain in your season of spiritual growth. Keep moving forward and continue to praise Him!

Prayer for today: Dear God, I am feeling weak and weary from the trials that I am facing. I need you to walk with me during this harsh season in my life. I humbly ask you to be with me as my faith and dependence on you becomes stronger. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen!
