Respect the process

In my life I've had to deal with a lot of unexpected events. But I've learned to appreciate the process that God has chosen for me. My path may take plenty of twists and turns but it will eventually lead me to a divine place in Him. I thank God for his glory and choosing to work with me instead of leaving me by the waste side.

So, where are you now? You may not be where you want to be, but I pray that you make the most out of where you are now. Don't wait until "blank" to be happy and praise God. Stand in the gap and make the devil mad by being happy right now no matter what he throws at you. Your attitude really does determine your altitude!! You can't speed up the process that you have to go through, so praise Him now while still in it. The way you handle trials or any situation can help or hinder your progress.

Remember that this too shall pass. You are like a beautiful glass vase being put through the fire so that it can be shaped into a wonderful work of art. You are being put through the fire, so you can be sensitive to the spirit of the Lord, that He may mold and shape you for His purpose. The end result is a lovely finished product that will outshine all the flames that once engulfed you.

Laugh when you should be crying...

Push foward when you should give up...

Rejoice when you should be sulking...

and above all else...PRAY!!!
