LET THE BIBLE BEAUTIFY YOUR LIFE

Hello Ladies,

The title of this blog post actually dropped in my spirit recently as I was reading. Such a beautiful reminder and importance of why we need to have the word of God open daily to be fed with and encouraged by.

Life may not always go the way we want it, random situations pop up, people hurt us, struggle in finances, friendship issues, feeling stagnant in your walk, job losses, illnesses, you name it. We would love to not have any issues arise and for life to just be sweet – but I have come to understand that in the good and bad God is still God, so in the bad I will still rejoice and learn in it.

So in the bad as well as the good, rejoice and give Him thanks always – you may not be happy with that circumstance but in it rejoice anyway God is still God and hasn’t changed. You can always learn something new about yourself in bad times and God has a way of teaching and showing forth His glory in those trying times. But you need to get your mind renewed to not let the negativity seep in when things don’t look good.

If God has allowed it to happen, thank Him because He believed in you to overcome it. He believes in you, but do you believe in yourself is the question.

As a believer you have to make it a priority to study the word daily, you have a Father in Heaven whose words are in the Bible to heal, deliver, comfort, give peace, and so much more. So anytime you are going through things it should be the first thing you turn to. Not friends, family or your partner.

The bible will beautify your life, elevate you, equip you, encourage you, strengthen you and so much more. The bible transforms from the inside out in a way no other resource or person can. So have hope, read your bible, pray and build an intimate relationship with God.
