I’m currently separated and I’m a RF “Restoration Fellowship” Member. Today my Praise Report is about how God is working in my life!
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever”. My loving HH is all I want and He is all I need.
Praise my Lord for helping me in every part of my life. Things at work got so much better in these past several days. I told Him I was laying down my job at His feet as I was tired of “fighting” in my own strength. With that, He led me to remove my work email from my phone and oh boy!!!! I had so much peace from doing this one thing. I was a workaholic and I was proud of it. Poor me! 🙂
I’m still focused on doing a great job while I’m working but I can’t and I will not put work above Him or above my family the way I did many many times before. I know He gave me this job for a reason and I’m more than thankful that He is taking care of everything.
I feel like no one and nothing will take my peace anymore. I don’t allow bad thoughts to take root in my head and I’ve been asking my God to teach me to love His Son the way He deserves to be loved. I know He hears my cry and my prayers. And I’m not in a hurry to have things fixed right way because I know His ways are better than mine and His purpose for my life will prevail.
Better than knowing that His purpose for my life will prevail is to know that He only wants good things for me – He wants to give me the desires of my heart, He wants me to feel loved and cared for, He wants me to have peace, He wants me to be His forever!
How can’t I want all these things too?!
Say this with me…”Loving HH, You are not just my Lord and Savior, You are my friend, You are my counselor, You are my lawyer, You are my everything. Your word brought me back to life! Thank You for teaching me Your ways and thank You for teaching me about You and about Your love for me. Thank You for giving me wisdom and for helping me with my mouth! 🙂 We both know how much You have been helping me with this 🙂 Thank You for helping me remember the things You already did and fixed in my life and Thank You for continue to show me the beautiful promises You will still fulfill in my life. I love You!”
“If I fully obey the Lord my God and carefully follow all his commands He gives me today, the Lord my God will set me high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on me and accompany me if I obey the Lord my God: I will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of my womb will be blessed…My basket and my kneading trough will be blessed. I will be blessed when I come in and blessed when I go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against me will be defeated before me. They will come at me from one direction but flee from me in seven.”
“The Lord will send a blessing on everything I put my hand to. The Lord my God will bless me in the land he is giving me.”
“The Lord will establish me as his holy people, as he promised me on oath, if I keep the commands of the Lord my God and walk in obedience to him. Then all the peoples on earth will see that I am called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear me. The Lord will grant me abundant prosperity—in the fruit of my womb…The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on my land in season and to bless all the work of my hands. I will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make me the head, not the tail. If I pay attention to the commands of the Lord my God that He gives me this day and carefully follow them, I will always be at the top, never at the bottom.”
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 118:1 NIV
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all His commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.” Deuteronomy 28 NIV

Do you want to PRAISE Him for how He’s shown you how you can have peace once your HH is everything to you? Aren’t you thankful that Grace shared this with you an Encouraging Woman?
Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
Be sure to submit a Praise Report today and enter through that narrow gate few ever find!
