Note to self...

Sunday's sermon was on point!  The sermon title was "You don't have to look like what you're going through!"  I sat there and said - He is so right.  He read the story about ShadrachMeshach and Abednego and the fiery furnace then proceeded to make The Bible and the scripture come to life.  Pastor said just because you lost your job, doesn't mean you have to look broke.  Just because you're hungry, doesn't mean you have to look famished.  Just because you're alone, doesn't mean you have to look lonely.

There are situations in life that we must learn to deal with and overcome - face it, that's life.  But its how we deal with the situations and what we look like before, during and after "the storm" that is the true testament.   If you speak life and positivity then positive things will happen to you.  
I dare you to try it.  
Be encouraged!!!

  1. I believe in speaking positively and positive things coming from it. And vice versa, when you think of the worst, that's usually what happens.

    I remember the story of Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego. I haven't been to church in a while, but I do remember that.

  3. Let the Church say AMEN. I remember hearing a similar sermon and a few days later someone said to me 'You look like money.' I reflected on that sermon, smiled and said 'I am walking in what's to come.'
    I love it! Thanks for bringing that memory back.
