SUMMER OF ABUNDANCE
Today when I arrived at the grocery store, the store sandwich board on the outside of the door caught my eye. Along with some general information it had the written words “Summer of Abundance”. When I read those words deep in my spirit, I took note. At that moment I sensed the Lord say “yes, daughter, this season will be the summer of abundance for you; for anyone who has ears to hear”. As I pondered those words, my pessimistic mind started to say “but what about all the things happening in the world, Lord? What the war in Ukraine, the food supply chain; what about the political landscape; have you seen the stock market? What about the crime that is happening?" My “whataboutisms” continued to roll in my mind like water rushing over the falls. Then the gentle Holy Spirit reminded me that it is in Him we have hope; In Him there is no lack; in the Kingdom of Heaven there is abundance of peace and supply. In the face of difficult or uncertain times, He is still able to meet our needs if we seek him and put our trust in Him.
I encourage you to set your heart towards the Lord today and trust Him with whatever is going on in your life. He is faithful to bring an abundance of whatever we need when we need it. You may need peace; you may need a miracle; you may need a breakthrough. Seek the Lord; trust Him; He is never late.
In the beginning.....
Well, it may not be “the beginning” but it is the start of something new for me.
For sometime now I have wanted to begin a blog. But like many wanna be bloggers, it was difficult to decide which direction to go in. If any of you know me on Facebook, I often post things that I find interesting related to faith, food, health, family, or finances. These are all topics that I have great interest in sharing information on, discussing with others, or learning more about.
I guess this defines my site as one of a lifestyle blogger. My topics of interest should intersect with one another over the course of time. For instance, it is difficult to discuss food and not talk about the role food plays in our health. Or, how our faith can impact child rearing decisions. And we all understand how finances impact every aspect of our lives from daily living to giving to the needs of others.
What I hope comes out of all of this is useful information for you, the reader, and maybe a smile or two along the way.
With that settled, we are off to the races! (Figuratively speaking, of course!)
