ENJOY THE LIFE GOD HAS GIVEN YOU!
OCTOBER 7, 2019
“…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…” Ecclesiastes 3:4
One evening I sat at the dinner table with my husband and children and we were about to play a game called Chubby Bunny. It’s when you try to see who can fit the most marshmallows in your mouth while saying chubby bunny each time. Before we began, I told everyone I would win because my mouth is the biggest. My husband just stared at me. He just knew he had me beat. So we began. One marshmallow, then two. My son put two in his mouth and he was done. My daughter fit three, then gagged, and said “I’m out!” My husband was able to stuff six in his mouth before calling it quits. I reached seven, the most of everyone, and it was hilarious. Trying to say chubby bunny with a mouth full of marshmallows sounded more like hubba hubba. But I did it! I won and I was happy! After I did my little happy dance, we looked at each other and said, “That was fun!”
In your pursuit of God’s will for your life, know that it is His will that you enjoy your life and the people He has placed in it. Enjoy your husband. Enjoy your children. Enjoy your friendships and every moment God has given you.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for the gift of life. It is precious. I ask that you help me to enjoy the life you’ve given me. Help me to enjoy every moment and the people you’ve placed in my life. Let me take nothing for granted. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
YOU’RE NOT GOING BACKWARD; YOU’RE GOING FORWARD!

“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.” Hebrews 6:1
It’s a new season, my sister, and it’s a new day! God is putting the wind back in your sails. He is showing you that nothing can stop you, and no one can hinder you when God is on your side. Those old fears will not work this time. You’re in a new place in God, and it’s time to receive His grace to continue your progress in Him. If you made it this far, you could go on! Go further than your mother did! Go further than your grandmother did! Go further, my sister! You have everything you need to fulfill God’s divine purpose for your life. It’s all within you! Instead of running from problems, watch God help you face them head-on. Instead of caving under pressure, watch God help you stand on His truth. Anything that held you back before will not work this time. You’re not going backward; you’re going forward!
Declare this from your heart today: “God is with me, and He is for me! I am not looking back. I am moving forward in Jesus! It’s a new season for me, and it’s a new day. God’s face is shining on me, and His grace is with me. I am a woman with a vision, I am a woman on a mission, and I am a woman with a purpose. God is building me into a kingdom woman, and I am totally surrendered to Him. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
