Blessed are We

Mathew 5:22/KJV

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.


God continues to blow my mind with His perfect timing. He is the Great Puppeteer in the Sky, weighing out the hearts of men (and women); always watching. I absolutely love these Scriptures in particular. I’ve been persecuted mercilessly in my life, but God sees all, and He’s taking notes.

I’ve always read verse 17 and marveled that we’re instructed to REJOICE when we’re being viciously ripped apart by someone else. Just as we’re instructed to forgive, we’re instructed to rejoice when we’re being persecuted. I love that. And God never sleeps! We don’t need to fret or lose sleep when we think things are unfair, etc. in our lives, because God is a Master Balancer, and He will balance out every scale to His perfection and Glory, not our own.

Still taking a hiatus from my blog, and haven’t been around much these past couple of years, but I hope everyone is doing well in these incredibly odd times that we’re living in. I’ll back to my photoshoots and posting semiregularly sooner, rather than later, I hope! The jury’s still out on that one. 🙂

This one’s for you, G. 😉 Still lovin’ the monochromes. ❤
