Go THROUGH The Valley

Instead of focusing on life’s failures – which in most cases are perceived failures and not actually failures because in Christ you never fail; I’d like to encourage you to focus on that which is good. Focus on the many blessings God has given you – whether it’s life, health, strength, food on the table, clothes on your back, sharp cognitive abilities and the ability to love like God loves. (Romans 5:5) Dig deep into your soul and find the blessing – it’s not hard to find and it’s truly there. Be thankful for all He has done for you and brought you through.  (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

No matter what, let God turn your shame into a shout. Don't lay in the valley, go THROUGH thevalley with the Lord on your side - allowing Him to carry you while focusing on that which isgood. (Psalm 23:4) Philippians 4:8 states, Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 

The word, think in this Scripture in the Greek means, meditate on or consider.  God wants us to meditate on, consider or shall I add focus on things that are just (righteous and acceptable by God), pure (clean, modest and sacred), lovely (acceptable and pleasing) and of good report (sounding well).

So focus on healing, restoration, peace, inner joy, forgiveness, laughter, love and all of that which is good and you will find in your life every thing that has been lacking will be restored and that which was lost will now be found – including the many years you thought satan had taken away from you forever. 

And I will restore to you the years that the locust  hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt  wondrously with you: and my people shall never be  ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel,  and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.  Joel 2:25-27
