God will help you RISE above it all!

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others…” Matthew 20:28, NLT

I’ll never forget when my best friend lost her son years ago. It was their first child and he was three months old. As soon as we received the heartbreaking news, we jumped into our car and drove three hours to comfort her, along with all of her family and friends.

A month later, I called and asked her how she was doing. She said, “I’m just looking for opportunities to share Jesus with others.” I’ll never forget that moment. I was standing in the grocery store and tears began to run down my face because my beautiful friend, who had every right to be bitter and angry with God, was looking for ways to win people to Him. That showed me that Jesus certainly lives within her because no one can respond in that manner and not have a real relationship with the Father.

In life, we all experience circumstances that completely devastate us. However, just as my friend’s faithfulness to God encouraged me and created a memory that I’ll never forget, our faithfulness to God can encourage those around us. Don’t turn away from Him; turn to Him. Don’t stop being a blessing. Don’t stop telling others about Jesus; witness all the more. It will show that Jesus truly lives within you and you certainly have a real relationship with the Father that cannot be taken away from you.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to my heart. No matter what I go through in life, help me to turn to you and not against you. Help me Lord to never stop serving you. Even in the midst of my circumstances, help me to rise above it all and keep my heart set on you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

In memory of Jonathan William Martin.

  6. AMEN! I just heard earlier this morning that we DO NOT know truly what we believe until our faith is tested and tried. We hide GOD’S word in our hearts that we might night sin against HIM. We study to show ourselves approved unto GOD and the HOLY SPIRIT does what only HE can do in and through our lives. Thank YOU JESUS!
