Happy Saturday People!
I had a most enjoyable evening with my daughter and then my son, as Emily had her first ladies night in forever. She had fun and we had fun… a blessed night for sure! I love my family!
Heaven and I were supposed to go to the softball game…game got rained out… ate at McDonalds (Budget food), went to pets n pals and played with the “coolest dog EVEEEER”, went to the dollar store to buy something Heaven “absolutely needed”, met Coree and Kady back at the house and watched the end of “She’s all That”, stopped by BP and said hi to Cole, played the claw machine and won Heaven a green elephant on the first try, went and got ice cream- was very tasty, met up with Emily there, came back home, watched CSI Miami and then Criminal Intent- was very scary (wished we hadn’t watched it), ran into the bedroom and put my feet under the covers before a monster got me, rebuked the spirit of fear and went to sleep in peace! LOL
I have that SPIRITUAL FEELING again this morning… the one I blogged about yesterday… an exuberant anticipation of some GIGANTIC BLESSING! I can almost TASTE it you guys… this thing is BIG… and it’s almost HERE!
Really, the night is always the darkest just before the BREAK OF DAY! Any minute now… THE SON IS GOING TO CUT THROUGH THE GROSS DARKNESS and BAM, a NEW DAY WILL MOST CERTAINLY DAWN! So darkness: back up… shut up… get out… go away! This night is just about over… it’s a new day!
Proverbs 4:18 The path of the righteous is like the FIRST GLEAM of dawn, shining EVER BRIGHTER till the full light of day.
Isn’t that a beautiful verse of scripture? It explains the progression of our lives as we overcome the night to SHINE EACH NEW DAY!
No matter how dark and scary our NIGHT TIMES may be… we are just like the FIRST GLEAM OF DAWN… shinning brighter and brighter and BRIGHTER… until we are like the brightness at HIGH NOON… without a single shadow… LIGHTING UP THE EARTH with the glory of Lord – beaming from every part of our lives.
Isaiah 60:1-3 Arise, SHINE, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but THE LORD RISES UPON YOU and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
I’m praying with great faith over you guys this morning… asking God to give you each a CLEAR ANTICIPATION of certain success! This is your time to SHINE… it’s a new day and you were made to LIGHT IT UP!
On a side note: Have you ever noticed how each NEW DAY begins at MID-NIGHT? Interesting…
Have an amazing weekend… see you tomorrow morning at Destiny Family Center TEN O’CLOCK!
