Happy New Month everyone. I trust that you are all doing well. April was here but now we are here, welcoming the month of May with opened arms. Looking back over the month of April, I would have to say that it was an awesome one. With each new day dawn, despite the challenges, God saw me through. By God’s grace, I crossed over to the month of May with all smiles and wonder of all that God has instore for me. You know, the God we serve is full of surprises. God loves you and I so much that He is always on the lookout for us. Although, I don’t know what God has prepared for this month, like a little child, I’m excited.
When I look over the month of April, I can’t help but thank God for His goodness and continuous faithfulness in my life. If there’s one lesson that I always recall during my waiting season for God’s promise to be fulfilled in my life, it would have to be “trust and obey”. Even in our waiting, God is still working but even in the middle of the seas of uncertainty, God gives us an instruction. April was sweet to me and I am grateful for all the lessons learned.
As I crossed over into the month of May, the word that was impressed on my heart was “one thing”. It was during my time of prayer that the word came strongly in my spirit. I believe that God wants us to focus on Him. I remember receiving the word and I immediately was reminded of Psalm 27:4 and Luke 10. Psalm 27:4 reads “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.” This was David’s heart desire to know God more and to gaze on the glorious beauty of the Lord where He could be found, right in His presence. David only asked for one thing and surely it was fulfilled. When we take a look at the story of Mary and Martha, which is found in Luke 10, Jesus reminded Martha that she was worried and upset about many things, but few things were needed or indeed one. Like Martha, we are caught up in the web and chains of this life but God is calling us back to His presence. Jesus’ response to Martha was this: “Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” For some of us, we have put others on a pedestal and have made no time for the One who loves us. We have placed our trust in mere human beings, and have forsaken our first love. Mary chose the best thing. In the same way, we have to make that choice daily to rest at the feet of the Father or find a console in the arms of the world. God is near. He isn’t far-fetched but we have to make a choice daily to seek His face. As we make room for the King, we get to experience the fullness of His presence.
Cheers to the month of May. God bless you all. May you flourish in all that you do. Move forward in greatness. Most importantly, may you seek first the Kingdom of God. Have a wonderful month of May. Remain blessed 🙂
