There is A Blessing With Your Name

God has a blessingówith your name on it. A Reflection for your soul.

You may be going through hell today. You may be experienceing something that is extraordinarily painful and difficult. You may even have lost faith or belief in God. But I'm here to tell you today, that God has a blessing with your name on it, and the enemy of all mankind does not want you to have it, believe it, or receive any kind of relief from the pain and trouble you are going through at this moment.

How do I know there is a blessing with my name on it? Because I have been going through so much hell, that I know there is a reason why the enemy is targeting me so hard--he does not want me to be happy, successful, at peace, and he definitely doesn't want me to share anything with anyone. But you know what? I do not fear the enemy. And I will continue to do all that God has placed in my heart to do. Even if it is just to listen, and be a friend. I will do it.

Each week, after writing Reflections, I go through something. And the darndest thing, I no doubt get tested on the very thing I have written about. Yet I know, that all the trials and tests that I go through are making me stronger and wiser.

Listen, I know I can make it. And, I want you to know that you can make it, too. Take these trials and tests. Take these hard times and learn from them. See your strength. See your ability to live through it. Some of you may have thought you would never get through some of the most painful things in your lives. But here you are, alive, breathing and reading this reflecton. That is proof right there, that you can and will survive everything the enemy throws at you. You are much stronger than you think. Do not let the enemy make you give up on your blessing, or your miracle. Because God definitely has one with your name on it.

If you don't take anything else away from this Reflection, but one thing, let it be this:

God loves you, and has great things for you, even when you can't see it or feel it. But know it in your heart. God never lies.

Be blessed this week. Be strong and stay encouraged. My prayer for you, is that you would receive all that God has with your name on it!

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
