Goodbye July x

The month of July has come to an end. Doesn’t it feel good to start a new chapter? A new month begins tomorrow, and it is an opportunity for growth and positive change.

I understand that this year has been challenging for almost everybody, and I want to encourage you.

Be proud of how you’ve handled the year so far. Frankly speaking, nothing could have prepared us for 2020. However, look at you! You have made it so far; Celebrate your relentless self, celebrate your strength!!!

The Lord has been teaching me to trust Him more since the year started. Things have not gone as I had planned to be honest, but I remain grateful.

Late last week, I remember meditating on Lamentations 3:37 which says;

‘Who can command things to happen without the Lord’s permission’?

I felt so excited pondering on what this scripture implied. For me, it was another moment of realizing how my life is in the Lord’s hand and how he controls EVERY single thing that concerns me; I felt unconquerable because God is on my side and He has only good plans for His children. So, I went to bed with a big smile on my face that night.

Lol!😂😂😂 I laugh because I had no idea that I was going to be tested so soon.

Best believe that every Word of God that you believe will be tested. For example, if you believe that God is your healer, you’re going to be tested in one way or the other. I once heard John C. Maxwell say that Faith that has not been tested cannot be trusted. I am learning to welcome them as they come and I urge you to do same.

So, the next day, I received news concerning my career which tested if I had believed what I had meditated upon the previous day. I began to murmur and sulk until the Holy Spirit reminded me that nothing can happen without the Lord’s permission, and immediately, I stopped what I was doing.

The Lord permitted even this seemingly confusing position I found myself in to happen. Just realizing this gave me peace. The situation I found myself in the other day is still unclear, I don’t know what tomorrow holds for my career, but I choose to trust God. Wherever He leads, I will follow.

Scripture says a living dog is better than a dead lion. You have life, no matter how much of a roller-coaster this year has been, there is hope. The same Word of God says that there is a lifting up when men are cast down, and we shall arise amid the darkness. The question is, do you believe the Word of God above your current situation?  (Ecclesiastes 9:4; Job 22:29; Isaiah 60:1-2)

God has shown up for me several times. I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that He exists and He comes through for everyone who believes in Him. I don’t know where you’re at in your life, or what you’re going through, but I pray that God shows up for you specially and undeniably. I pray that you rise above all that you may be going through by His grace and mercy.

Secondly, I’d like to thank you for being a part of my growth. I started this blog four months ago, and the growth has been incredible. Thank you for always stopping by. Thank you for your likes and comments. Thank you for sharing and most importantly, thank you for reading what I write. Without you, this place would just be another journal of mine that nobody ever gets to read.

Your engagement means a lot to me! I see every single one of you, and I cannot thank you enough. My blog is being read in places I have never been to; I feel so blessed!!!!!

I am so thankful. I hope and pray that I can offer more value to you. That is my goal.

Lastly, I am taking a hiatus from posting next month. It is a much-needed break, and I am praying that I’d be back better than I left.

Feel free to contact me if you need to at sharimamwrites@gmail.com.

Take care of yourself, stay safe and remember you are loved.

Love, Sharimam.
