Prosperity – I am grateful for a full and prosperous life.
This is today’s daily word. I know you’ve seen things I’ve shared from this devotional before, but lately, I can’t seem to get enough of it.
I feel a little guilty for saying this, but sometimes I have to be reminded to be grateful for the things that I have. Sometimes I feel like life just gets so hectic we forget, until something comes along and reminds us. Today, it was the message from my daily devotional.
“Prosperity is a state of mind”. While I’m fortunate I have a good job, I’m a very simple person and feel like I could get by with very little. I am who I am because of the things my parents have taught me and because of the life I choose to lead. It feels good. I feel blessed everyday.

Recently, I joined a women’s ministry group at church. It’s been wonderful. It’s a safe place for me to learn about God and make friends with some wonderful ladies, too. It’s a little scary, because I haven’t ever fully dove into a group like this before, but its wonderful, and I’m excited for the next five weeks of classes.
The other night, we were read a passage from Isaiah 43:1-4. The passage reads:
1 But now, this is what The Lord says–he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.
We were asked to close our eyes as this passage was read to us and listen for the word or words that spoke to us. For me, it was you are mine. It was my reminder, that The Lord’s “got this,” and that I need to continue to put my faith in Him.
Do you need that reminder, too?
P.S. If you’re new to Aunt Bubba’s page, welcome. I hope you like what you’ve seen so far. If you’re not new, welcome back! You’ve noticed that I’ve “found Jesus” and spend a lot of time talking about scripture. Some of you may not be comfortable with that, and that’s ok. This is me, and I am not ashamed. 🙂
