“Bless Your Way Through”

“Bless Your Way Through”
July 6, 2011

When we are facing tough times in our life, sometimes the road to better days can be a lot easier if we bless our way through it. We may not always want to have a positive attitude when we are going through things but by doing so we can definitely shorten the length in which we have to suffer.  There are three ways we can bless our way through, just as Jesus did after losing a loved one.  Bless your way through by being helpful while hurting, creative during your crisis, and sensitive through your storm.   

Feeding the Five Thousand (Matt. 14:13-21, 27 NKJV)

13 When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities. 14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. 15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a

deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.” 16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” 18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to

heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. 20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. 21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children. 
27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”

Bless your way through by being helpful while hurting:

Jesus still ministered during His pain of losing a disciple, John the Baptist.  He healed the sick and performed a miracle of feeding 5000 with five loaves and two fish.  If you’re helping while you’re hurting you’ll forget that you’re hurting. (vs. 14, 19)

Bless your way through by being creative during your crisis:

Gather and be grateful for all that you have and God will make a way.  Jesus thanked God for only having five loaves and two fish. (vs. 17)

Bless your way through by being sensitive through your storm:

Be sensitive through your storm because God considers your pain.  He is the only one who can calm the storm. (vs. 27)

Something to think about:  Bless your way through and trust that God will work everything else out as it should be.  Thank God in advance.  God Bless Blog Readers!!!
