I'm not Lucky - I'm Blessed!

Luck?
Who needs it?
Luck is fickle.
Luck is random.
Here one day and gone the next.

But Blessed...
Now, that's something you can count on!
When we walk with Jesus,
we walk  in His promises.

His promises of...
Peace
Joy
Provision
Guidance
Love
Purpose
Acceptance

These are promises
not fingers-crossed hope.

We don't have to find a 4 leaf clover.
We just need to find Jesus.

We don't have to be Irish.
We just have to be a Christian.

We don't have to wonder if luck will find us today,
because, God's blessings abound every day.

May God bless you richly
as you walk in His promises!

Prescription for the blues.

Prescription for  the blues:

Read this scripture several times out loud. 

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."  Zepheniah 3:17
 
Memorize it. 
Sing it. 
Shout it. 
Laugh about how much your God delights in you, his child.
Yes, you fail at times, yes you mess up, but He loves you, still. 

He delights in you. 
Yes, YOU!  
Imagine Him rejoicing over you with singing. 
God - singing over you. 
Wow!

Let's stir things up!


What are you good at?

Singing or playing a musical instrument.
Art - drawing, painting, sculpting
Crafting - turning trash into treasure, repurposing, upcycling
Writing

Maybe you're a good listener, an encourager.  Maybe you have a beaming smile and the knack for making people feel welcomed, loved, encouraged.

Are you a good teacher?  Organizer? Cook?

God has built into you, skills, talents, knacks because he knows what's needed by the people around you and he placed you right where you are so that you are able to use those things that you are good at to help others.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  1 Peter 4:10

If you've let your talent go dormant, if you think what you do well is not really important, please think again. God can use you to accomplish His work in the lives of people those He has placed in your path, so stir up that gift. Get going and be a blessing to someone today!
