Remember to keep pushing forward! Help is always around the Corner! God has a way of PERFECT TIMING…. Many of you have recent commented on my ability to persevere. You had commented on how Strong I am… Let me tell you, I too have fear, self loathing, aggravation, unbelief and impatience! But, after my temper tantrums, I always come back to the Truth and that is that God Loves Me! And He is For Me!
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4. perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
And although sometimes it seems like God isn’t working for your good and things will never happen in time… They always work out! Even when it looks like they haven’t!
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5. Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Over and Over, Scripture reminds us that God is FOR US, Never against us! It is our MINDSET that is being transformed to live our best lives here now. Remembering that we have Hope in our Lord and not in ourselves.
Be strengthened while you REST this weekend for Things to Come.
I planned for over 5 years to move to Tennessee, and when the day finally came I was looking for major changes in my life. What I did not realize is that those changes were made in me, but they needed to be manifested in my life! In order for God to Manifest Himself in Me, I had to go thru some trials that put to Death the Old Adamic Ways in me and Awaken the New Ways! The only way that could happen is if I lost all my own ability and had to lean on the Lord wholly for understanding, provision, Grace and Mercy.
- The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
- The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
- And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Have a great week everyone! I’m rejoicing as I await my Offer Letter for my new Job! I was invited to apply for a position that was created because my Resume crossed the Owners Desk of 7 Franchise Clinics for The Joint Chiropractic. Praise God! I got the Job!
I had lost all reasoning. I was so beyond frustrated, tired, weakened by my struggles… And then I finally gave up, resided to the idea that I just couldn’t do it. So, I told God that! Yelling at the ceiling in my apartment, asking God “please! Come Save Me! Open a Door! I can’t do this anymore! I need your guidance and mercy” and He came in all His Mercy and Grace! He answered my prayers. And I am so thankful.
Hey Daughter, Saint Corrie,
Thanks for posting this. I really appreciated your openness and
willingness to share both sides of the battles you’ve been in. It
helped me greatly.

It truly has been a battle! And I can honestly say it’s become a lifestyle… This is the LIFE of the Believer, the Transformation!
We tend to look for the days of Rest, but before we reach the Grounds of Rest, we must go thru the battle. At least some of us do. And while there is a factor of rest during the transformation, it doesn’t feel restful at all 😂
I know you have faced your battles too. And our journeys have many similarities. Whether be it cause of our stubborn nature, or our similar purpose with the Lord… So I know you can relate to this story.
Good news is I’m starting to reach some blue skies! The clouds are parting and I am seeing all the things that I have left behind. I don’t know how the Lord does it, but I’m beginning to heal. Praise God His ways are better than ours!
