Dear Beautiful Lady,
This morning whilst walking through my flower garden, brushing the petals lightly with my fingertips, I became so acutely aware of Godu2019s tender love for me. After all, God did not promise us a life without worries and hardship, but He did promise to give us His Holy Spirit that will lead us and guide us in all Truth whilst we navigate challenging times.
I pray that as you venture into this chapter, that you will experience how the Truth comes and sets you free from your once-upon-a-time restricted living to a now-and-forever joyful living. How liberating to know that you and I donu2019t have to fabricate our own joyful living, but that we can have it here and now through Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
I love Philippians 4:8-9 that says:
u201cSumming it all up, friends, Iu2019d say youu2019ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious – the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realised. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.u201d
Letu2019s dive right in!
