I have left it all behind and set my face like flint. The old is gone, and the new has come!
Weeping remained for a night, but joy came in the morning. Night may have lasted an eternity... or a few years, or a few months, or days or hours or really it's all just a blink of the eye... I have put on a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
I have been reborn. This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. God knew the plans He had for me before time began - before one day came to pass it was written in His book. Though it may not always look perfect -it is. I am. God's way is perfect, and I am in Him. He is leading me in the good path, and i am blessed in Him.
So, when I'm tempted to say- "I'm tired of..." "I'm done with..." Or even, "I am soooo ready for...." I am not! That was. This is. I am not there any more! And I will not BE. I am.
I am seated in heavenly places. I am an overcomer. I am who I am, and His grace to me was not without effect.
This moment I am where I am meant to be. God planned this moment for me.
Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice! It's His joy that gives me strength.
I am. I am praising Him! I am living. I am living full and abundant and completely. Right here. Right now.
