The Season of Favor

It's 12:11 am.. I'm on the edge of my bed about to get in. My wife and I just got finished watching Netflix and chilling. I'm fresh off of a plane today. I'm working in another city two days a week as a consultant to a company. It's been a blessing and a lot of fun.

I'm sitting here and thinking about how everything is going right in my life. I have everything I need and pretty much everything I want. I have all the things money can't buy, like love, peace, and happiness. I also have been fortunate enough to buy a few things.

I ask God, why me? I'm wondering is it too good to be true and will it only get better?  I've had a lot of rough days. I've been broke. I've down been down and out but I've never stayed down. I just don't believe in being down. I get back up in less than 24 hours.

But here's why I wanted to write this blog. I feel blessed not only because God is a good God but because he rewards the righteous. I believe righteous living produces more blessings. The blessings aren't just financial. The blessings are sometimes intangible. This peace and happiness that passes all understanding. This joy and contentment. The doors that have been opened and the favor that has been shown! God is a good God!!' But I have to say, I keep the commandments. I live right. My heart and mind are pure. I'm 100% faithful to my wife. I don't cheat in any way. I live righteous inside and out. It's a sacrifice. It's not easy but the rewards have been so great that the temptation to sin can't compare.

I want to encourage you to get your heart right. Have a pure heart and mind and watch what you allow in your life. Keep the commandments and live righteous. Do it because you love God not because you want blessings. The blessings are a by-product of living right.

I want to share this joy and peace. I want you to know that it can be yours through Christ. You can live a blessed and favored life if you'll be willing to sacrifice and deny your flesh and live your life as a testament to Christ.

It's real!! I'm a living witness!!
