Wow what a super bowl game that was! Both teams played amazing and definitely deserve praise for their performance but the best part of all 4 hours was when the Eagles head coach, Ertz, and Foles gave the glory to God. Amen! When your eyes are open to the fact that there is someone bigger than you and greater that’s when you learn to walk in humility. Every day is truly a gift from above.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.” -1 Peter 5:6
via Daily Prompt: Sympathize
Have compassion on; to be affected with the same feeling as another; to feel for.
Galatians 6:2 ESV
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
Just recently the eyes of my heart were enlightened and I gained understanding that I was not rejected by that person or those persons but I was protected by my heavenly father. Have you ever been discouraged by someone or let down or had a dream fall to ashes? If you haven’t, lucky you, but I am sure the majority of us have experienced rejection or discouragement some where down the line.
Well I had finally got a breakthrough the other day that I had needed for so long. I was driving down the road talking to God and I asked him to show me how to accept a particular situation that had happened with a guy I was talking to. Basically in a nut shell, I dated this guy who I had thought was pretty great while ignoring a couple of red flags. When I asked God to show me how to accept the rejection, he started speaking to me, “Courtney suppose one of your parents saw something that would affect you in a negative way but they didn’t say or do anything about it”. He then said “I know what lies ahead, and I know this man and what your future would be like with him, and I know the heartbreak you will go through if you would’ve stayed with him”. Praise God! Right then I felt a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He knows every thing and all things! Nothing is a surprise to him. He is my heavenly Father doing his heavenly duties, protecting me and loving me in a way I have never experienced. He wants to do the same for all of us but we have a choice to make, we can either chase after empty promises or walk in the amazing plans that our daddy Jesus has for us. WALK IN VICTORY!
Isaiah 41:10 NLT
10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
