Thank you Lord Jesus for all of your blessings. May I use them to bless the lives of others just as they have blessed me.Here are a few reasons that I love writing. I can go back and look at how God has been blessing my life.
For instance, earlier this month I was really struggling with some things in my heart. I wrote about them in a post titled, Time Alone. My struggles were, I believe, the result of some unconfessed feelings I may have been harboring.
The thing was I wasn’t even able to recognize the feelings. I finally asked God to just forgive this attitude in my heart and in that He helped me identify what those feelings were and I gave them to Him.First blessing, what an Awesome God that we have that He is able to help us identify our feelings and heal us from any that are not pleasing to Him.
Second blessing, among many, I was able to reach out to a reader and suggest t her that journal her feelings or struggles, pray over them, and in doing that she could look back and see how God has blessed her through certain situations.
I was excited to help someone with their journey in walking with Christ. I am a teacher at heart and any time I can help someone it feels great. The blessing came through her words to me.Her gratitude and her encouraging words to me were such inspiration to my heart at this late hour. I just praise God for those moments. May we look for His blessings in every situation.
I recently wrote a post called Nothing Holding Me Back. You see, I sometimes feel like the things in my life may be distracting me or pulling me away from God's heart.The truth is God put us where He wants us to be. We need to give Him our whole heart in those moments or in those places. When our heart begins to fade we need to call on the Great Healer to strengthen us and refresh our souls.
One reader commented about this post and I have thought about what she was saying for a long time but God put her words straight to my heart. I realized what a blessing God is giving me in allowing me to write and share with other people and what a blessing others have been to me.I hope that you are enjoying reading this blog. I absolutely enjoy writing it. It means a lot of late nights so you will have to excuse my dark circles but what a blessing it has been.

Together we can build up the body of Christ.You have an amazing week and please keep Sharing the Love of Jesus in your life.
