Trouble is Inevitable Misery is Optional

I want to let everyone know I have been away, as I had 3 Major Surgeries with complications and was in NYC for a year and only came home because my loving younger brother went home to be with our loving Father, until the Savior comes and the New Earth and Heaven are finished, and we will all rise who believe, and be reunited with those we love, I will sorely miss him every day.

As humans it is the worst , most incomprehensible, helpless feeling, leaving a hole where there once was a space reserved for daily memories with that specific loved one, as I struggle I keep rereading the many promises our loving Father gives us and His words of wisdom written through the pens of others, such as Psalm 4:19 and Isaiah 61:3, I read 4 versions of the Lords word, and for these particular verses I would like to quote the living Translation Bible which says;

Psalm 94:19Living Bible (TLB)
19 Lord, when doubts fill my mind, when my heart is in turmoil, quiet me and give me renewed hope and cheer.

Isaiah 61:3Living Bible (TLB)
To all who mourn in Israel he will give: beauty for ashes; joy instead of mourning; praise instead of heaviness. For God has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory.

Jesus walked this earth as a human, though perfect, to understand all we would feel. physically, emotionally, and spiritually. He than suffered, died, and rose again, so we would receive the gift of Grace from the Father and we would all be with Him and begin Eternal love, peace, and joy, all together when His purposes that He needed His children for are fulfilled, and every living being has had an opportunity for Eternal serenity and peace.

I thought after the trials of 2014, 2015 would be a better year and it was just the opposite, but as Job said in,

 Job 2:10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.

But He promised to never leave us nor forsake us, and believe me I feel Him all day, and He gets me through, for I believe in Romans 8:28, along with the many other awesome promise and blessings, that all things work together for our good either here or in Heaven. So I pray for my many Brothers and Sisters suffering in any way, and I pray for us to remember all these, as well as 1Corinthians 10:13.

I pray we all have a safe, loving weekend, full of wisdom and discernment ,and that we remember that He is the lamp at our feet, and guides our path which is why the more we stay the course, the more He can accomplish through us as His earthly vehicles. I pray the below poem encourages your weekend, hugs love and prayers Patricia xox

Have a Nice day Unless You have other plans
Life's a choice
God made that clear
we can choose to feel safe
or live in fear,
but when in fear
God's not in control
because that's not the way
our loving Father rolls,
He wants each day
to bring us joy
so we can shine
 for all girls and boys,
for it's through us
that He shines his light
so that others
can see His glorious might,
so that others may ask
about His ways
and spend eternity
in peace not flames,
but the choice is ours
 for we have free will
and sadly He knows
many doubt Him still,
so we pray for all
that it's part of your plan
to get to know the father
and feel His hand.
