Let the Lord establish you.

The past few months have been filled with what I can only describe as miracles. From God opening doors to promotions, answers to prayers that have been prayed for years and Him giving me ideas and opening my eyes to new ways of seeing and being. I have been thanking God for these things and really just focusing on getting to know Him more. Why? Because I have seen that when my focused changed to getting to know God better and growing in my communication with Him, even if nothing in my circumstances changed, my perspective did and I was filled with joy and peace. I now understand and see clearer that I am not on this earth for me but for Him; that my ultimate calling is to live according to His will and not mine masquerading as His.

This morning my bible verse is:
2 Thessalonians 3:3

3 But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.

Indeed the Lord is faithful and the more I take my eyes off myself and circumstances, the more I see it. I see how he has saved me from myself and different things that could (and really should have) derailed me. But He has and continues to be my guard.

He can be yours too.

Blessings xoxo

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
