Sometimes life knocks you down and tries to keep you down but with God you may fall ten times but you will always rise up again.
Disclaimer: This is not a fitness post right now:
I didn’t work out for 3 days because the devil tried to knock me down and keep me down. I ran into a stumbling block or what the devil meant to be a setback for me but God is forever on the throne and forever faithful. Nothing happens without his knowledge. Yes it may be tough to rise back up, and you always think about it but God is our strength and always there to lift us up. You dont have to do it on your own. God’s ways are not our ways and if only the devil knew this stumbling block will trigger the next phase God has for my life, he would have thought twice before striking.
My husband has always been a blessing in my life and he further proved it by standing by me through it, allowing me to cry non stop, and soak his shirt lol. One major blessing of marriage is having a man that fears the Lord and puts God into all he does, he encouraged me and lifted my faith up with bible verses when it was falling.
A friend sent this to me (she had no idea about the stumbling block i had and we have not spoken in 3 years!!) See how God works?
The song “It Is Well With My Soul” was written by a successful Christian lawyer. He had two girls and a wife and the family planned a summer trip to go overseas. Since he had a lot of work to do, he sent his family and decided to follow them later. He heard the news while on the following ship that another ship had capsized and he knew that his family was there since they mentioned the name of the ship. On His return home, his Law firm was burned down and the insurance refused to pay, they said “It’s An Act Of God”. He had no money to pay for his house and no work, he also lost his house. Then while sitting and thinking what’s happening to him, being a spiritual person, he wrote a song – whatever my Lord, you have taught me to say – It is well, it is well with my soul. My dear friend, a good attitude will determine your altitude. When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say? Do you praise God? Do you blame the devil? A good attitude towards God makes Him move on your behalf. Just sit down and say, Today God, it is well with my soul, I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep, I am thankful I am alive with possibilities, I am thankful I have a roof over me, I am thankful I have a job, I am thankful that I have Family and Friends. Above all, I am thankful that I have the Lord Jesus Christ on my side. Be blessed and don’t be envious or shocked when others are prospering because you don’t know what they have been through to get there (test, trials and tribulation) so thank God for what you have. “Little is much when God is in it. It Is Well With My Soul! Touch someone’s life with this message if God is for us, who can be against us? Don’t read if you can’t forward. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it’s over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on, please don’t ignore it, you are being tested. God is going to fix two things (BIG) in your favor. If you believe in God, drop everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don’t break this. Send this to fourteen friends in 10 minutes
Isaiah 41: 10: So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Anyway, so i am rising back up again and ready to show this devil who is boss!
