Everything works together for the good of them that love God. What happens to you, God is still on the throne and God thinks about you and really cares about you.(Ps8:4).
It is a fact that there is no recession in Heaven, there is no down time, no server breakdown and no network failure.
However in our journey in life, there might be moment when it seems heaven is silent concerning us like Job. Disappointment and setbacks will surely come but you don't have to get down and go into SURVIVAL MODE. Instead stay in faith and believe that God will protect and restore you supernaturally.
We need to know that a bad economy doesn't limit God's power. However if you have a poor mouth, you will have a poor life. This is one thing that struck me because I realised I have been dwelling too much on stuffs I lacked and issues am facing instead of thanking God for what I have and challenges that I have overcome and praying bold prayers for God to enlarge and expand my coast. It is time to quit complaining.
Researchers say focusing on solutions increases our capacity to reach our goals while also lifting our spirit in the process.
Do your best to honour God with every effort you make.
Say to yourself:
I'm too blessed to be worried.
I'm too blessed to be negative.
I'm too blessed to be upset.

Expect and believe in God for favour, believe in Him for expansion and divine lifting. It can only become better should be your mentality.
Hang on in faith. Stop complaining. Stop Nagging.
It is your time to be celebrated.
Cheers!!!

This would make a good devotional. Try to make some white space between paragraphs for easier reading:)

God's promises cause us to have great "expectations". Continue to trust and use these. Good examples.

God's commands like James 1:2-4 mellows any discontent we may have during trials.

Short sentences can be powerful. (Think of "Jesus wept".

Your feeling are felt in this article.

Keep expressing how you feel with colorful words.

This is a powerful devotion. You made some outstanding points and it made me stop and examine my own thoughts.

You had some tiny things like you should write out the word Psalm and if it's a direct quote, include the version and either put the verse in italics or in quotation marks. One time you did start Heaven with a capital H and one time you didn't. Getting a good challenge buddy or critique group would help with little things like that.

I think you nailed the topic in an interesting and creative way. Your advice is great and something I really need to remember as I tend to be a big worrier. I appreciate your words and the resulting self-evaluation that I found myself doing. Great job.
