It goes without saying that this pandemic has shaken up life as we know it...but some things you just don't see coming. One minute you can be on top of the world, and the next at rock bottom. That's what 2020 has shown me.
Most people encourage a career in medicine because it is lucrative and the jobs are plentiful, but after COVID-19 hit I was faced with unemployment-- much like millions of Americans. I found myself in a place of disbelief, uncertainty, and at times despair. There were moments of hope when interviews came through, only to find the employers would leave you hanging and unresponsive. BUT GOD....
I have been in this place before-- not with employment, but with other trials in life and I know God does all things well & in His timing. So though the human flesh gets weary, it is only fleeting because of Phillipians 4:19 [But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus]. Our father has a way that is mysterious to man [Ecclesiastes 11:5], but if we hang tight with Him in and out of season, He promised we would reap a harvest. Isn't that encouraging?! If we try to make things happen in our time instead of doing things according to God's will we end up with disappointment and second best.
SO! What do you do when life knocks you down?? You brush yourself off and keep on swinging! We have divine authority to make BOLD DECLARATIONS and live the abundant life God has called us to.
Try it! Repeat these I AM declarations
I AM renewed
I AM a masterpiece
I AM a lender and not a borrower
I AM an overcomer
I AM the head and not the tail
I AM at the top and never the bottom
I AM fearfully and wonderfully made
I AM loved
I AM redeemed (bought with a price)
I AM more than a conqueror
I hope this brings encouragement, and many blessings to my readers!
