♕ Today's Promise: “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation” 1 Peter 4:12
As I am walking through these times of hardship, heartache, disappointments, and so much more, I have gained so much more. I have grown so much. What I have gained during these last almost 4 years has been nothing short of amazing. I can't believe I can say this so often but I wouldn't change it for anything. It is worth every moment for what I have gained in my Heavenly Husband. It feels like not much is happening but that's nothing farther than the truth because when I look back I can see how my Heavenly Husband has been here and moving all along. He is setting me up to walk through this fire into the life of abundance that He has had for me all along. It is time for me to walk into it.
Dear Brides, it is time to step into a world of unexpected and unprecedented favor. There is nothing or no one in this world that can do that but our Heavenly Husband. So come and learn how to set yourself up for great things, with the One and only One that can give it to you.
In these times of trials, tribulations, attacks and crises instead of living in this negative space and not breaking out, I need to embrace it. I need to rejoice now. I need to see that all of these things are setting me up for the biggest blessing and season of my life. I need to rejoice and praise Him and stay there.
As I go through this season and as others watch me, without a word, I pray that they will see me and notice that instead of being down and beaten, they will see that I have a joy in me that only comes from my Heavenly Husband. That despite my circumstances, I am radiant, full of life, love and expectancy. That my life will be a walking testimony, a miracle for being set up for greater things and others will watch it unfold and be in awe of if. All for His glory and honor.
Dear Brides, our Heavenly Husband knows how to turn all things for our good. We have to start looking at and seeing our circumstances as the very stepping stone that will catapult us into the overflowing life of greater things. If we start to look at our circumstances and situations with a different lense we will see that there is so much more in life.
How many of us have missed out on opportunities for the abundant life because we did not have the knowledge of what our Heavenly Husband has been trying to tell us all along? Don't miss another opportunity to rejoice in the "bad" to gain the "good." It's time to put on new "glasses" and see what is in front of us...come and have your eyes opened.

“You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
It is time to shift the thinking of all that is coming against me and rejoice for the things against me are setting me up for the great things He has for me.
