So when I was little my grandfather bought a video camera when they first came out. The really big one you put on your shoulder. He would tape me and you can hear him talking really loud trying to get it right. “Can you see the red light?” He would record everything. I would always ask, “Paw Paw will you tape me please?” I would entertain him for hours!!!! Other than my one woman show I would also give sermons. Not that we ever went to church but we always believed. The only scripture I would preach was the book of JOB. I don’t know why I was so drawn to it. As I sit here now I see it as foreshadowing. How faithful would I be when times were hard? Would I forsake GOD or would I just hold on and KNOW that it wouldn’t always be this way?
At times it’s sooooooooooooooo hard to endure life’s challenges and still “Keep the Faith”. Job and Joseph endure a lot of hardships. Well liked and living a comfortable life it was all snatched from them and they only had Faith to hold onto. Pushed practically to a perceived breaking point but they still held on. They held on KNOWING that it would not always be this way and they were right. They were giving more than they had before. I looked to these books because they encouraged me to hang in there. I have always said, “Don’t let your lying eyes have you believing what you think see”. I knew that I was grieving and it was going to be a minute before things changed. I just had to continue to push through the hurt. A lot of people thought I was at my bottom but they don’t understand my Faith.
I know that I am created in GOD’s image so just knowing that I am built strong. We are given the gift of life but that doesn’t mean that it will always be sweet. So like Job and Joseph I endure my seasons of planting, germination, and growth. All along KNOWING that if I keep praying, being grateful for what I do have, and moving forward that my season of harvest would come. I am no preacher but I have Faith and in the end I know I will always be fine. I’m smiling right now just thinking about it. I’m guessing this is my season of harvest because I have something to say and was able to get it down on paper (or word document….lol). I hope that you are able to get something out of this and add it to the happy in your day.
I pray every day that we all stay open to GOD’s word and positivity. Push through the difficulties and submerge ourselves in the victories of life!
AND remember pain makes you stronger. Tears make you brave. Heartbreak makes you wiser. So thank the past for a better future.
MAKE IT GREAT!!!!!!
