God's Favor Outlasts Our Tears!

Our emotional footprint can be a statement of how well we navigate turbulent waters. All too often we allow the emotions of a moment or season to define us, sometimes for life. Scripture indicates that God’s emotional footprint as it relates to anger is far outweighed by the footprint of love, favor, grace, mercy or forgiveness.

Psalm 30:5 speaks to this point: “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”

So how do we shrink our negative emotional footprint?

• We don’t allow short-term setbacks to blur long-term vision.

• We remain motivated even through tough times.

• We never ever give up.

• We learn from our mistakes and reference those lessons frequently.

• We don’t allow falls to turn into chronic fails.

1 Peter 5:10In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.

Dear friend, know that you are making progress and are one step closer to your victory.

Peace and blessings!

    The best way to get through the storm or setback is to meditate on God and all His grace and mercy. This helps me take the focus off the situation, and focus on my victory through Christ Jesus.

    I’ve also found another way to get through the trails and tribulations is to help someone else going through something, as we’re all going through something, one way or another. This help take the focus off of YOU! We are our brother’s keeper, the strength and support the two can provide one another is what helps them weather the storm(s) while Jesus Christ is working on their victories!
