Good Day, Beautiful People!
Nothing is permanent in this world. The only constant things are God’s Love and changes.
Those of us who travel on this life journey for awhile bound to experience good and bad seasons. Some days in life seem more challenging than other days. You just need to take it as it comes. One day at a time. Even your feeling right now is temporary. So don’t let your feeling run your life. Enjoy the the good with the bad. Be thankful for the good times and challenging times. We learn valuable lesson during challenging time. We can choose to curl up like a ball and hide or choose to put on your spiritual armor, pick up your spiritual weapon and fight. Let your village of people who love you know to give you the support you need.
Adopt a good attitude, positive thinking and good opinion of God. Most brave people I encounter overcome challenging storms through this way has amazing great outcome. You can experience joy right here in the midst of real and even raw life.

Joy is neither the absence of pain,
nor the presence of denial.
It is discovered when you and I
Allows our minds and spirits to be
Saturated with the truth that
God is near us,
With the miracle that He walks beside us. – Alicia Britt Chole

If you have to fight the battle, fight courageously.
If you have to walk through it, walk boldly.
If you have to stand on guard, stand equipped.
If you have to sit and watch, sit patiently.
If you have to rest at a standstill, rest peacefully.
-Angela S Chua

Below is another touching poem REST from my creative mate, Melinda Fletcher.
My soul will rest in You alone
My soul will rest in You alone
In the shadow of your wings
It’s there you will hear me sing
My soul will rest in You alone

My heart will trust in you alone
My heart will trust in you alone
Nothing will I fear
as long as you are near
My God I will trust in you alone

My hope is in Your word alone
My hope is in Your word alone
My hiding place and shield
In your presence where I’m healed
My hope is in Your word alone

You Make Me Brave

According to my Honey favourite saying, “some days you are the bird, some days you are the statue.” I say to myself  ‘bull’s eye.” Some days in life are just more challenging than others. You wish you can just finish the day quickly, go to sleep. Hopefully, wake up to see issue resolve,  witness a miracle and enjoy many more good days. As we know it does not always happen that way. Sometimes we need to go through the fire for character building. Ouch, sound so painful. Nobody like receiving dreadful news, lousy health report, financial crisis, job loss, loss of an significant account, business closure, bankruptcy, homeless, lose someone significant, betrayal, misunderstanding, death of loved ones, abusive boss, unreasonable partner, never ending meetings, mountain of paperwork from office to tackle, conflicts with colleagues or associates, demanding clients, heated debates with spouse and family members, endless home management, networking and other far too many commitment. Out of sudden, life may seem spun out of control.

The important thing is knowing WHO is still in control, the great “I AM”. Just tell yourself to stop whatever you are doing for a minute and get your composure. Simply focus on breathing deeply. Inhale Jesus love and exhale enemy stress, repeat. Count to Ten slowly before you response to whatever crisis. A good reminder from pastor Bobbie Houston, “Eat, sleep, pray and repeat. Eat, sleep, pray and repeat. Eat, sleep, pray and repeat.”  Of course, talk to someone you trust or call a hotline near you to unload. Listen to good music, songs and starts to praise and worship God in advance for your good outcome or miracle.

If you are feeling a bit under the weather, or facing overwhelming situation, just pause and listen to this heart rending song, You make me brave by Bethel Music. Soak in, let it ministers to your inner being.

VERSE 1:

I stand before You now
The greatness of your renown
I have heard of the majesty and wonder of you
King of Heaven, in humility, I bow

CHORUS:
As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us
You are not against us
Champion of Heaven
You made a way for all to enter in

VERSE 2:
I have heard You calling my name
I have heard the song of love that You sing
So I will let You draw me out beyond the shore
Into Your grace
Into Your grace

BRIDGE:
You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the love that made a way

You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the promises you made

I leave you with the Living Word to ponder, “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them.” Joshua1:6 (NLT)
