Have you ever asked someone how they were and their response was “Blessed and Highly Favored”?
I used to think “Wow, I wish I felt like that!”
Ever felt like you weren’t blessed?
Then this blog is for YOU!
Maybe deep down you know you are blessed and highly favored, but the circumstances of life are just so overwhelming, so frustrating, and/or so worrisome right now that you just can’t say you are blessed and highly favored at this point in time! I’ve been there and got the t-shirt that says “I don’t ever wanna go back there”!
NEWS FLASH! We have ALL been there! Don’t let anyone fool you!
I don’t know about you, but when I watch the news, scroll through my social media feeds or read the news online (I am a fan of the Drudge Report…shhh, don’t tell!), I can’t help but feel depressed, saddened, frustrated, worried and downright confused! And then if I start looking at my own life/frustrations, my own family issues/circumstances (I have had five family deaths in six months ~ that’s a lot folks!), or I look at all the burdens of those around me, I can get downright negative!
I start speaking negative words, start having negative thoughts and then before you know it, I’ve begin to BUY INTO those emotions! Yikes!
We can’t buy into that junk! And yes, junk is what it is!
So let’s do this together…
(Square your shoulders back, hold your head up high and let’s say this out loud…)
I am a child of the King of Kings and the Lord of all Lords! He calls ME His own! He knows the number of hairs on MY head and He has chosen ME! I AM blessed and highly favored! I AM anointed! I AM not ruled by my emotions or my feelings! I am RULED by the Truth of God’s Word that says I am all HE says I am, and HE says I am HIS own! I AM blessed and highly favored! I will not worry, doubt, stress or fret because I am BLESSED!
Whew, take THAT one debil! (And yes, I deliberately misspelled the name!)
