Good day readers, right now it’s morning in New York so good morning to those in the East coast.
In have no idea how long I’ve been away…all I have to do though, is look at the date of the last post I made.
I’m here this morning to share part of my devotional because what I’ve read, I believe and agree with.
This is a screenshot of the You Version devotional Always In Control with of by Tony Evans.
Sustains and develops that which He brings into existence.
Months ago, sometime last year I believe, I came to the continuing belief that God is taking care of me. I am aware that my blood says that I have sickle cell disease. Doctors have blamed this disease to be the reason of my stroke in December 2015, that in conjunction with the stress I was experiencing at that time. Possibly brought on by cold temperatures when I worked in a fish market for a few hours. Oh what a story guys!
After the stroke and recovery of the skills that I lost, skills I had that I grew accustomed to like walking and control of how my body rids itself of waste (liquid and firm). After all of that inwas told that I will either have to take hydroxyurea or get blood exchanges for 7 years, according to my doctor. I think my last exchange was in 2019. 2019 was also the year that I had my ventral port removed. Which means absolutely no exchanges. For the ventral port gave nurses access to my blood in order to do an exchange. That ventral port was connected to a vein…I’m not exactly sure but it caused a vein in my neck to stand…all this being said, I believed and still do believe that God will take care of me, for He created me, He knew the seed and egg owners and He knew I would be created. So I trust Him to take care of me. He sustains and develops that which He has brought into existence.
Hallelujah, glory and praise be to the absolutely most high God.
Psalm 121 personalized!
I will lift up my eyes to the hills –
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is my keeper;
The LORD is my shade at my right hand.
The sun shall not strike me by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve me from all evil;
He shall preserve my soul.
The LORD shall preserve my going out and my coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
New King James Version
“Prayer and Forgiveness
25 And when all of you stand praying, FORGIVE, if all of you have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may FORGIVE you your trespasses.
26 But if all of you do not FORGIVE, neither will your Father which is in heaven FORGIVE your trespasses.
+Not FORGIVING others breaks our fellowship and relationship with God, and it gives the devil entrance to our lives.
+FORGIVENESS from our hearts toward others keeps us in FELLOWSHIP and RELATIONSHIP with God.
+Our practice of Forgiveness is one of the many ways of us submitting ourselves to God while resisting the devil so he the devil will flee from us.
•Remember not Forgiving others is SIN, and if we have the SIN in our hearts God will not FORGIVE us of our sins nor answer our prayers.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!”
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
To live a life of thanks is to live a life of joy! During Advent, like little children waiting for Christmas Day, his tremendous love sets our hearts in PASSION mode. Saint Catherine of Siena once said: “If you are what you should be, you will set the world on fire!” GO!”
Here is Get Out From Depression by Joyce Meyer.
Whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, For my heart rejoiced in all my labor; And this was my reward from all my labor.
Ecclesiastes 2:10 NKJV
It makes sense to me. Especially since I’ve started working one year, I think I would want to satisfy my desires for the work I’ve been doing seems tough.
