You Have The Advantage!
Have you ever been in a situation you just want changed like asap?…yeah, i know we’ve all been there…anyway, today began somewhat sluggishly for me…wasnt really feeling like getting into the sunday morning rush to go to church, partly because i stayed up till around past 3 a.m…(you wouldnt guess what kept me up..! I decided to skin my hair 😃😃😃😃well, reason for that is story for another day). I almost decided against going to church even, but my mind kept buzzing about how my kids had kept disturbing within the week about “church school” as they call it.
Eventually, i got the kids dressed and myself..packed up and off we went to church. My husband and i finally settled in just as the sermon was starting and boy! It was soul touching from the moment it began. The preacher was so interesting that you couldnt bat an eyelid to doze…especially for someone like me who hadnt had enough sleep.
The sermom was titled; ‘You have the advantage’ it centered on the story of David, through Jabez , Joseph and and a few other examples. The sermon went on to show how with God regardless of your lowly background, inadequacies, physical appearance, what others think about you etc…once you can solely, wholeheartedly, depend on God, you always have the best advantage over any situation that betides you! You can’t be taken down, you can rise above whatever that situation is…it can change for the best regardless of how hopeless it seems or how late it appears! When God is involved it makes all the difference…and so on and on the preacher went…. And i sat in that church pew with my baby graciously sleeping on my lap after nursing herself to fullness…thinking to myself this sermon is the word for the season for me, and i almost misssed it! I felt grateful i made the efforts to come as i was truly blessed by that sermon because i am currently going through a phase in my life right now i just want over…and was begining to be discouraged.
My friends, Hang in there and take a cue from my short story. Dont be discouraged…i was encouraged today and truly blessed, i want to channel that blessing to you as well!
Its a Happy sunday, i pray your entire week be pleasant!
