There are days and seasons when you feel that your whole world is falling apart, crumbling all around you.

Yes, you’re thankful but that’s why it’s so frustrating. Even though you know EVERYTHING that could possibly go wrong isn’t going wrong there are times when you feel you’re getting your ‘unfair’ share.

Your home…

Your relationships…

Your financing…

Your health…

Your job or career…

Your reputation…

Your life…

May all seem to just unravel at once and not long after you wake up with new hope for each new day… a new challenge slaps you right in the face as soon as you get off your knees from praying.

No one else understands. Everyone has more advice than encouragement.

Have you ever been there?

Are you there right now?

Let me give you one encouraging reminder…

When everything seems to be falling apart all around you, that means that you’re still standing!

When everything is falling apart around you…YOUR STILL STANDING.

Ephesians 6:13-18  (NKJV)

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

Remember, that God never promised to be fair…

Keep standing my friend!



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
