Bursting with Blessings

Spiritual Growth From Hardship: Devotional James 5:11

Blessed are you who have endured much and use it to grow and transform.

I'll admit I'm not yet at the spiritual maturity point of being happy when trials and hard circumstances come into my life.

I still have a hard time being fully happy that a flood devastated my home and sent me on this journey of becoming a Christian Life Coach and author.

But that's what life is--it's becoming, it's becoming so much more than we would have been had we not gone through the trials that God allowed to enter our lives or that we created from our own willful pride and sinful choices (thank God, He can redeem us and transform us through all things if/when we submit to Him).

It's becoming what God wants so He can bless us with experiences, mindsets, relationships, and so much more than we ever would have been ready for had we not walked through those hard times.

*Are you ready to take all your experiences--good and bad and use them to catapult yourself into your dreams and blessings? Then let's work together and make it happen 🗣🤳

Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus thank You for this day. Thank You for Your transforming, saving, redeeming love.

Lord we are so grateful and in awe of all that You do in our lives. Lord please help us to see our circumstances with God-blessed eyes to use it to grow us into the spiritual maturity You want for us.

Help us have the mindset shift that leads to the blessings and the life that edifies You and brings others a glimpse of Your power, love, and mercy.

We sing praises to Your name, now and forever, Father, Son, & Holy Spirit, Amen.
