Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
It’s Thursday and I am absolutely exhausted! I think my body is trying to adapt to the mental demands that come with school at this level. I’m simply surviving with prayer, coffee, some Lecrae, and a few moments of sleep in the law library. All in all, I believe that I am in a good place. I just say that I was in a good place years ago, I wasn’t. I did not know what a good place was until I found myself in divine purpose. Yes, I deal with various giants and a slew of mountains but I’m a giant slayer and I tell my mountains to be removed. Whether in the valley or on top of the mountain, I am in a good place. This confidence does not come from perfection but rather from service to a perfect God. He has placed me into a good place regardless of the what appears to be, I am in a good place.
I’m reminded of one of my favorite scriptures in Psalms, Psalm 1: 3 in fact:
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
This scripture describes the one that willfully meditates on the Word of the Lord on a consistent basis. Those who spend adequate time with the Lord, find themselves placed in a good place. A place where there is constant spiritual prosperity, stability in daily living and favor with men. The place I have found myself, though new and adjust-worthy, is a GOOD place. I feel like I am in the perfect soil to grow and in a position of having amazing things grow with me.
Who would have thought moving to a new city, being surrounded by new people and engaging in a new program would be a good place? But isn’t it like the wisdom of God to do things that do not make sense to yield the best results. It’s the character of God to work outside of our comprehension to create His plans and purposes in our lives.
So friends, I just wanted to take a moment to encourage you. I know life right now might not look good, and it may seem like good is never going to come- but hold on, good is coming. In fact, I would argue that these circumstances is God’s way of bringing you to a good place. I leave you with this,
For we know that all things work together for the good of those that love God and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Good is promised and it shall manifest in your life! Welcome to your good place…
Until next time,
