My mantra of late:
Love believes the best of others.
Love assumes the best.
Forgiveness is the only option worth it.
I’ve been forgiven of much, so I’m going to love much.
God’s will for my life is that I’m Thankful.
I will give thanks in EVERY circumstance.
Take that fear.
Take that worry.
Take that stress.
Take that discouragement.
Take that tiredness.
Take that laziness.
Take that lies.
Take that low self esteem.
I will choose forgiveness.
I will choose love.
I will choose thankfulness.
Mark 8:23: “Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village.”
Sometimes healing is a journey. Sometimes you’ve got to take Jesus’ hand and walk blindly to a new location. Sometimes that journey of blind faith isn’t the worst moment—sometimes you’ll get spit in the face afterwards!
"Then, spitting on the man’s eyes, he laid his hands on him and asked, "Can you see anything now?"
And sometimes your healing will come in increments. Don’t settle for just seeing blurry images. Keep pressing in.
"The man looked around. "Yes," he said, "I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around." Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again, and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly."
Your righteous prayers will be answered. Stick around for the end of the story!
