SUMMER SERIES, Week 3

Starting Each Day in Victory Instead of Defeat!

This is it! The “OFFICIAL” first day of Summer! You can run, but you can’t hide!

It may have been feeling like Summer for weeks now. You may have taken that plunge into the pool over and over again by now, but regardless, today is the day!

It is what is known as the ‘Summer Solstice.’ The astronomical calendar marks the first day of Summer as the Earth’s axis is pointed directly at the sun.

So what does all of this mean?

It means it’s the LONGEST AND HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR!

Now, all of the scientists in the room will point out that it could have happened yesterday on June 20th, or will happen tomorrow on June 22nd, or in fact could be today June 21st, and this is true. BUT IT’S HAPPENING! Summer is officially here!

The truth is, for someone like me, who loves the rain and milder temperatures, it can send us into the “DOLDRUMS!”

Yes, that is a real thing.

The definition of DOLDRUMS as a plural noun is:

“A state or period of inactivity, stagnation or depression.”

How do I keep myself out of the “Doldrums,” and walk in victory instead of defeat even on the longest, warmest day of the year?  

I read God’s TRUTH about me and step through the “inactivity” of the doldrums, into the “activity” of believing what God says about me.

Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”  John 1:12

I AM A CHILD OF GOD!

That TRUTH can breakthrough any doldrum we go through. We are a child of God. He is our Father, we are His sons and daughters.

I am a daughter of The King! I am a princess! I am royalty! My name is written in heaven! Someday I will live there forever with my Father, The King! 

Just read Ephesians 1 if you need any more proof.

God chose us before the creation of the world to be His sons and daughters!

My feet are too far off the ground after this proclamation, to be stuck in the doldrums of life!

TRUTH BOMB

I AM A CHILD OF GOD BECAUSE THE KING HIMSELF CHOSE ME!

Walk in the victory of that TRUTH today my friend, even if it is the longest day of the year!

Speak Truth Love
