“THIS CHRISTMAS”

IF I ONLY LOOKED AT THE NATURAL REALM TO VIEW THIS CHRISTMAS IT WOULD LOOK VERY BLEAK. MY FORMER CLIENT MOVED TO ANOTHER STATE AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER OF THIS YEAR AND I WAS LEFT WITHOUT A PERMANENT REPLACEMENT SO MY FINANCIAL STATUS TOOK A DROP BY SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS. I WAS MEETING MY LIVING EXPENSES AND SOME OF MY BILLS BY USING MY CREDIT CARDS, I KNOW THAT’S NOT A GOOD THING TO DO BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO USE THE ONLY OPTION’S YOU HAVE.

AFTER ABOUT TWO MONTH’S OF THIS TRYING TIME I BECAME JUST A LITTLE BIT ANXIOUS AND I WAS REMINDED OF THIS VERSE OF SCRIPTURE “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” I MUST SAY IT WAS A CHALLENGE FOR ME BUT GOD GAVE ME THE STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE TO STAND AND WAIT ON HIM TO PROVIDE.

HE REMINDED ME OF FORMER VICTORIES HE HAD GIVEN ME IN THE PAST OVER SUCH TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS, SO LIKE DAVID WHO ENCOURAGED HIMSELF WITH SELF TALKS AND REMINDERS OF HOW GOD HAD DELIVERED HIM FROM THE PAW OF THE BEAR AND THE MOUTH OF THE LION, I TO HAD TO REMEMBER WHAT ABBA FATHER HAD DONE FOR ME.

ABBA FATHER REMINDED ME ALSO OF THE LITTLE WIDOW WOMAN WHO HAD TO BORROW CRUSES’ TO PUT THE OIL IN THAT GOD WAS ABOUT TO BLESS HER WITH BECAUSE SHE HAD BLESSED THE PROPHET ELIJAH. I AM SO THANKFUL THAT WHEN WE ARE DOWN TO NOTHING OUR GOD IS UP TO SOMETHING.

WELL ON THIS WEEK AFTER COMING FROM A MEDICAL TEST AND RENEWING MY CREDENTIALS (I DIDN’T HAVE THE MONIES TO PAY FOR THEM EITHER BUT I WENT BY FAITH) AND WHEN I CAME OUT OF THE OFFICE I HAD A PHONE MESSAGE REGARDING A NEW PERMANENT ASSIGNMENT WHICH I WILL START TOMORROW…YEAHHH!

TRULY JESUS IS THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL BUT I THANK GOD FOR THE GIFT HE’S GIVEN ME DURING THIS SEASON. YOU REALLY CAN’T BEAT GOD GIVING NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY.
