Brilliant Days, Broken Days!

I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10) 

Our problem isn't that we've failed. Our problem is that we haven't failed enough. We haven't been brought low enough to learn what God wants us to learn. . . . 

Remember one of the songs from the Seventies we used to sing again and again? It mentioned how we learned to trust in Jesus and to trust in God by going "through it all." Not around it. Through it.

Through it all. That's the ticket. Through the victories and the failures. . . . Through the brilliant days of accomplishment and the broken days. . . . Through the heady days of laughter and success and those nameless intervals of setback and blank despair. Through it all, He is with us, leading us, teaching us, humbling us, preparing us. 

Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication 

This is one post that all of us should be able to relate to. 

All of us (at different moments of our lives) have experienced brilliant days and broken days. Given the fact that we live in a fallen world, it seems to appear that there are many more broken days than there are brilliant days. Right? 

As beautiful as it is to experience brilliant days, God also has a purpose and plan with us during our broken days. Let's be honest, there is absolutely nothing comfortable about being broken. Intervals of setback and brief moments of despair will happen during our broken days. During those broken days, it will feel like God has left us and abandoned us. Those broken days will without a doubt be among the most stressful days of our lives. However, we serve a God who is forever graceful to us and will always provide us with a morsel of hope that will enable us to walk through those broken days. BE ENCOURAGED my friends because. . . .

Brilliant days are coming!!!! 

Brilliant days are coming both individually and collectively for ALL of God's children! Brilliant days can be experienced in the most amazing of situations as well as in the most difficult of situations. Stories of Christian persecution is on the increase. Stories of healing and restoration are also on the increase. In each of those remarkable instances, brilliant days are coming. Brilliant days are coming for those who fall under the sword as well as those who fall under God's grace and mercy. My dear friends, if your brilliant day has yet to appear, don't let that from allowing you to have an intimate relationship with God and from influencing the world around you in Jesus' name. 

Thank you for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
