Greetings, Grace & Glory Kingโ€™s Kids, ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿพ

Happy New Year ๐ŸŽ‰, Black History Month๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, and soon to be L๐Ÿ’—Ve Day (3 of my favโ€™s). Iโ€™m learning that no matter what season you may find yourself in there is always a reaSON to rejoice! The Apostle Paul in the bible said it like this; I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For Iโ€™m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christโ€™s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Philippians 4:12-13 TPT).

Beginning around the holiday season in November continuing throughout the winter months many people suffer with episodes/bouts of depression. According to the ADAA 40 million adults in the US alone suffer from some form of anxiety disorder. Which although saddening it wasnโ€™t very surprising seeing as how we live in the age and culture of moving fast….canโ€™t be last type mentality. But what iโ€™ve come to find out my friend is that there is a higher way. Praise God (LoL Literally) !!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Disclaimer Alert โš ๏ธ There is no biblical escape clause that grants us a free pass against suffering. In fact there are many scripture that confirm that as a believer (or not) we will suffer but there are also scriptures that tell us how to and why we endure suffering. Itโ€™s important that we hold on and press into God so that it produces a greater glory/light in us, instead of running away and doing things that take us out of Gods will/desire for us.

After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace (who imparts His blessing and favor), who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be]

1 Peter 5:10 AMP

The best part about suffering with and/or for God is that itโ€™s not without purpose and He brings us out if we let Him lead us. In my last post I mentioned that when we humble ourselves God grants us grace(devine โค๏ธ influence and power to be๐Ÿ’ฅ) FYI also in 1 Peter 5 (great read)! In order to grow through suffering vs just continuing to go through we need God to give us a grace and wisdom to overcome. These gifts and many more are given free to us because Jesus payed the price, yet being a disciple does have a cost (obedience to His word, will and way). Nevertheless, ITโ€™S WORTH IT (Fruit&Favor vs Sin & Shame)!!

๐Ÿ˜ Mentioning Fruit and Favor I Am so excited because starting this month I will be seeking, studying, and sharing on the Fruits of the Spirit found in Galations 5. The Devine 9 ๐Ÿ˜โฃ๏ธ{side note}

One of my favorite verses is 2 Chronicles 7:14 itโ€™s one of those everyday any situation type scriptures that I like to keep close. If my people who are called by my name would Humble themselves and Pray, Seek my FACE (not hand), turn from their wicked ways ๐Ÿ˜– (repent), then He will hear from heaven and heal the land. God took Israel through the wilderness to humble them and its no different today! God delights in brokeness, us yielding ourselves to Him more and more. Sometimes we can be so focused on what we want we forget to consider what Father wants from us. ๐Ÿ˜”

Each day lets endeavor together to turn to God, seek Him whole heartedly, and yield to His guiding. He has given us all that we need in order to have Life and Godliness. Apart from God we merely exist and go through the motions (up, down, in, out). With God we press onward and grow through our journey with the expectation of the Joy on the other side (on earth & in heaven) as we enter into His presence.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:18 NKJV
