27. THE OVERFLOW
(The Faith Forum Series)
Most people ask God to give them strength to bear their burdens
But when through spiritual eyes he allowed me to glimpse my future
I asked him to give me strength to bear the blessings.
I had gotten so used to disappointment, rejection, heartache and loss
That those things had become my norm.
I was clueless and even afraid as to how I was supposed to operate when good things began happening and happening and happening…
My joy had never left me but how was I to do happy, when it came?
Seemingly, I had forgotten….
And I did not want euphoria to begin to compete with my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ
So when I saw all that the Lord was planning on my behalf
I knew that I would need help with the transition.
To be proactive
I asked for strength…
To deal with the overflow.
