Daily Inspiration: The Promised Life


Life ain’t what it used to be. Kathy looks longingly back to the days when she had a steady paycheck and access to easy credit. When the economy changed, her lifestyle changed and it’s been a tough pill to swallow.  In fact she’s choking in her current job, and gagging because her living situation could not be worse. She’s 35 years old, living at home, and sharing a car with her little brother. Her worst fears came true, now what?

Her mother tells the story differently. Kathy is blessed to have a roof over her head, and transportation. She’s paid off her debt and learned a valuable lesson about saving for a rainy day. Of course, Kathy’s Mom is a glass half-full kind of gal; optimism is her middle name. Not really. It’s Anne; Mary Anne Kates.

Mary Anne and Kathy went to church on a recent Sunday. The pastor’s sermon was on Exodus from the Old Testament. She preached about looking forward instead of back. The Children of Israel were used as an example.  When God gave the Jews the chance to flee Egypt, they didn’t see the promise land. They looked back at what they left, and remembered their old familiar ways, habits, and traditions.

Essentially it’s about faith. Knowing without a doubt that there is a destiny with your name on it and it’s good, very good. Just like in biblical times, Kathy needs to trust that her future is better than her past.  When God makes a promise to His children, he keeps it.

Today's Spiritual Quote
Today's Spiritual Quote
Limited as we are to our steadily aging bodies, we find it fascinating that angels can take any form that suits the message. A "classic" angel, with wings and all lighted up, perhaps with pale skin and eyes of blue flame, seems to be less often glimpsed than do angels in the guise of ordinary folks of all sorts--male or female, young or old, tall or short, any race, any dialect, any description. end quote
