"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23 NKJV.
It's Tuesday morning and I am sitting here thankful with a peaceful heart and joy. I stepped back from current events for a little bit. I have felt anxious. I'm in the best place of my life but the world around me is in chaos. It is a hard place to be. Spending 10 years in counseling to finally come through victorious, stepping out of the pain of my past, ready to live with confidence and intentional purpose & passion, has been met with doubt and uncertainty and I don't like it. Therefore, I am tuning out for a little bit and putting all my attention on creating a "studio" in my home to move forward with interviewing friends over a cup of tea. For now, my traveling tea blog is on hold, but I can still meet with friends, laugh and hear about how they have overcome.
I am packing my living space and storing it in a trailer for the next week and a half. I will clean my floor real good, including waxing it. I am going to rearrange my furniture so I have my Tuesday Tea with Brigette corner ready to go and it is going to be fun. It's next steps in creating my dream future but to do it I have to stop and remind myself, every morning, about God's steadfast love and faithfulness. Take 2 minutes and rest in God's presence, right now, close your eyes and listen to the hymn, The Steadfast Love of the Lord. Allow yourself to be taken into the arms of a loving God who sees you. His love never fails and every morning we wake up His mercy greets us as He says, "yes my daughter, it is a new day and I am with you, I will never leave you nor forsake you and today, this day, I have something good, right and perfect waiting for you. Trust Me!"
You, my Tea Loving Friends, bless me. I am blessed, I am loved, I am enough and I am courageous; and so are you! Enjoy your day fulfilling your purpose with joy and expectancy. Although the world around us may seem crazy, the best truly is to come. Let's keep our eyes on truth and walk confidently in the steadfast love of the Lord.
