No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

Rags to Riches

  • Then the king gave Daniel high honors and many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and chief prefect over all the wise men of Babylon. Dan. 2:48 ESV

    Daniel, who was born of royal family, was taken prisoner when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem in 597 BC. He was taken from his homeland, made a eunuch and a servant in Babylon against his will. It wasn't the happiest of starts, but in due time, God raised him up to second-in-command and he was the wisest man in Babylon.

    Joseph was born his father's favorite, but then sold into slavery, served time in prison, and then was promoted to second-in-command to Pharaoh. Moses was raised and educated as Pharaoh's royal family, then spent forty years tending sheep in the wilderness, but became the most powerful man living on earth. David was anointed by Samuel and then ran from Saul for years before he actually became the king.

    God has a plan for you. Before it comes to pass though, there is a time of proving, pruning, and maturing. To us, it often looks like just plain waiting. Do not get discouraged while you are in the wilderness. God is completely faithful and the things that He has spoken to you, He will bring to pass. You cannot have a rags to riches story without the rags.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I wait on You. I thank You so much for all that You are doing in my life and I know that You will guide me down the best possible path. Have Your way in my life, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: Good morning! The highlighted group of the week is "Count Your Blessings", a group for sharing the blessings that God brings to our lives each day! Let''s count our blessings together, name them one by one, let us be thankful for all Jesus has done and all the things He is going to do! ALSO, the Creation Photographers theme of the week is "Majestic Music", based on Ephesians 5:19! Show us how you make music from your heart to the Lord! As always, you are free to post anything else that inspires you, too :). You can find links to these groups under the Groups link on the site menu, or at the top of the homepage. Have a blessed day!
