Hahaha lol No… I am not about to provide you with the lyrics of one of your favorite love song in the 80’s “true color”. We all want a good life, a stress free one, which is very essential in the busy and chaotic world we live in. Did you think that it’s only for the bad that these pressures or challenges you are facing are set out for? Well I use to think so too but now I am having a change of perspective.
Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing (James 1:2-4 Voice)
Did you try to find out what the situation is working in you or for you? It’s never wasted you know especially when you know your live is in His hands. I am not saying wallow in hardships and pressures but I think you should let it work out the perfecting of your “True Colors”. Let it make you get to know you and how well to work better on yourself so as to be everything you are called out to be.( E.g. a few arguments thought me that I had to develop a good listening ear than a wrangling tongue and stop my outburst; it’s still a process but the good thing is I know where I need to work) What has your situation thought you or is teaching you?
To worry is human. We would prefer that our plans pan out perfectly with no hitches. We wish that all our endeavors paid off with success. We would have loved it if life were a bed of roses…without thorns. But reality isn’t as perfect as fantasy. The harsher the reality, the more we tend to worry.
I opened by hand bag (nothing fancy but lovely) and right there, I discovered I am almost out on my “Chance” pocket perfume. I love a good scent. So now i’m going through my purpose to see if i should buy it now or just hang on for a few days. I tell myself; “It is well”
Days ahead we had gone out for our company party and out of the bloom we had to get into strange sporting activity for ladies (Catwalk). How unexpected is that? And yes winners go back with gifts. So i’m looking forward to it. I use the best God gave me and came out winner. Next day back at work everyone is asking if i got my git and what it was and older employees made me know that it will be a phone ( possibly iPhone)
I am expectant and above all celebrating God I won something. The parcel comes and guess what it’s a whole box (perfume and deodorant) How precise can our loving Father get. God searched in my life even to little details as a spray and answered my silent heart prayer audibly, telling me He heard what i asked for without asking out loud ( God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! Eph 3:20)
God is ready to provide for you, He cares even for the minutest things about your life. Do not limit God in your life. His faithfulness you can count on. Much love 🙂
