Today I want to take a moment to encourage you to please understand do not feel guilty when the blessing belongs to you. Some of us today have worked so hard to be where we are right now. It might have taken what seemed like an eternity to get here but you are here, you’ve arrived, and this blessing belongs to you. Remember you have prayed and cried and prayed some more, you ‘ve worked hard to get to where you are.
How often in life are some of us made to feel guilty for getting the job we wanted, the home or the dream relationship or business. Before I go any further, I am not talking to the people who went before God and took matters into their own hands. I am speaking to those who have waited on Gods timing. Even when times were hard and you wanted to give up, you hung in there. On the hard days you reminded yourself that: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (NKJV Philippians 4:13) I know that you know exactly what I am talking about. I can barely hold back the tears myself.
I know sometimes when God begins to bless us, we want to share our blessings with everyone we know but the truth of the matter is that some blessings are meant to be kept to ourselves. You have trusted, you have prayed, and you have waited even when times were hard. God collected every tear you have cried. I say all that to say this: don’t be alarmed when others receive their blessings and you take the time to congratulate or celebrate them in some way but when the tables turn the people you were most happiest for aren’t so happy for you. It is your time to shine and I would like to encourage you to wear your blessings well, you deserve them.
You cried, you prayed, and you trusted and waited on God. I know you have not yet received all that is coming but remain prayerful and hope filled and remember the word when times get hard. My favorite scripture: (NKJV Isaiah 40:31) But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Wear your blessing and wear it well.
You deserve it
