Destiny with a Cost

One of my favorite stories in the old testament is the account of Joseph's experience.  This story is very inspiring to me in many different ways, one of which is how God used the unfortunate situations in his life and set the stage for greatness. 

God had a plan for Joseph's life. God used the challenging circumstances and experiences Joseph faced in order to fulfill Joseph's purpose/destiny. 

Joseph's Destiny was to be a ruler in a foreign land and as a result had to face many setbacks, obstacles, challenges, and opposition perhaps to prepare him for the future?  Perhaps these experiences helped shape future characteristics that would be needed in the great leader he would become.  I'm thinking he developed  and or perfected characteristics of patience, diplomacy, humility, obedience which as a sum all together equated to him being a disciplined person.

The story of David as recounted in the bible also shows his rise to being a King was not easy.  Saul sought out to kill him and he had to hide in caves and be on the run as a fugitive for several years. Although David was anointed by the prophet for the position he did not operate in the capacity of King until several years later.  I believe his experience being a fugitive helped David develop stamina/endurance that he would need as a future leader/King of Israel.

Let us be encouraged to know that whatever obstacles we face it is not necessarily to abort our Destiny.  Destiny may come with a price that eventually paves the way to be better and more equipped for what God has in store for us.  Let us rise to the challenge with dignity, humility, perseverance and obedience in the Name of Jesus.  I will achieve my destiny especially concerning my career goals.  Its up to me to pay the cost and realize the future value in the process.

Feeling Blue

Today I'm feeling blue...low...a little sad
I need some cheer to make my heart merry, happy and glad

The spiritual side of me wants to believe and have faith
The human side of me wanders why I need to wait

The fact is I am blessed beyond measure
It's up to me to enjoy and appreciate God's gifts and treasures

Faith, Hope, Joy and peace
What else does one need to feel at ease?

I have longings, desires, hopes and dreams
Will I ever experience those by substantial means?

My heart aches, my spirit hurts, my soul is blue
Please Lord help me to never lose trust in You

A New Season

Hello Friends,

I am returning from a one week 'vacation' from work since the New Year started.  I didn't go any where or do any thing extra special as most would consider a vacation.  I spent the week at home, went shopping a couple days, had lunch with mom a couple days, lounged around the house, got my hair braided (kinky twist) went to Church and had a great relaxing time.

Want to take this time to welcome all my new readers/followers.  Thank you and Welcome!!!

Praying that you will be reassured by the word of God this year, that no matter what challenges/difficulties you may face in the days to come  know that "The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms" Deut: 33:27 (KJV)

Love You,

Highly Favored
