Hello there, dear friends!
Imagine walking barefoot on a beach, stepping on sharp pebbles that hurt your feet. It’s painful, isn’t it? I am observing the world and what is going on right now, and it looks like we are stepping on those sharp pebbles: people facing housing challenges, rising food prices, financial struggles, emotional distress. It’s disheartening.
But… here’s the beautiful part—God has a better plan. He sees beyond our current struggles and promises a path filled with lasting joy.
So, I’ve got something exciting to share with you for the month of July. With these principles in mind, we can experience the transformation of pebbles into diamonds—finding lasting joy, abundant blessings, and a sense of purpose.
Are you ready?
1 Message: The Beauty of Letting Go
The Lord has a message for us: “Don’t be afraid to let go of something small.”
God has a wonderful way of transforming those losses into gains that exceed your wildest imagination.
That’s why we need to:
• Let Go of the Small Things
Don’t be afraid to lose something small. You see, there are moments when we hold onto things tightly because we’re afraid that if we let them go, we might end up with nothing. But in reality, when we release our grasp on the small things, we make space for bigger and better blessings to enter our lives.
Imagine you’re holding a tiny pebble in your hand. It might be shiny and captivating, and you’re afraid that if you let it go, you’ll be left empty-handed. But let me share with you a beautiful secret: God is like an expert jeweler. He sees that pebble and wants to exchange it for a sparkling diamond that will bring you lasting joy.
Even when life feels like walking on pebbles, let go of what weighs you down. With unwavering faith, sorrows will become radiant diamonds, bringing lasting joy in abundance.
In our individual journeys, these “small things” can vary greatly. It could be an unfulfilling job, a relationship that lacks nurturing, or even certain habits that hinder our progress. We often hesitate to let go due to the fear of the unknown. But remember, my dear friends, God’s plans for us are grander and more magnificent than we can fathom.
Release any burdens, regrets, or attachments to your past experiences and strive towards the goals and purposes that God has set before you. By letting go of what is behind, you can move forward with determination, pressing on towards the prize of your heavenly calling in Christ Jesus.
As the apostle Paul wrote,
‘Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 3:13-14)
• God’s Promise of Abundance
When you courageously release those small things that weigh you down, you create space for God’s abundant blessings to flow into your life. As you let go of a job that no longer fulfills you, God may lead you to an opportunity that aligns perfectly with your passions and talents.
When you step away from toxic relationships, you open yourself up to experiencing deeper connections with others who truly appreciate and support you.
And as you break free from harmful habits, God grants you the strength and freedom to embrace a healthier and more fulfilling life.
In the midst of loss, God’s promise stands firm:
‘And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:19, ESV)
• Finding Bigger Opportunities
When you courageously let go of what no longer serves you, God unveils new paths, bigger opportunities, and unimaginable blessings. The small loss you once mourned becomes a stepping stone on your journey to greater heights. As you entrust your life to Him, He aligns your paths with His perfect will, guiding you to a future filled with joy and purpose.
Remember that your Heavenly Father is always by your side. He knows your desires and wants to see you flourish. When you surrender your small pebbles, He replaces them with treasures that surpass your wildest dreams.
2 Message: Holding Firm in God’s Word
I want to encourage you to stay strong in the Word that God has given you.
• Engage with the Word with a Joyful Heart
Firstly, it is vital to approach the Word of God with a joyful heart.
We all face challenges and difficulties in life, but when we approach God’s Word with an open mind and a positive attitude, it becomes easier to receive His guidance and find strength in His promises.
Choose to rejoice in the Lord always, even when circumstances seem bleak. Remember, the joy of the Lord is your strength.
• Seek Daily Renewal in His Word
Secondly, make it a priority to seek daily renewal in God’s Word. Let God’s Promise speak life into your soul and empower you to face whatever comes your way.
God’s Word is a lamp to guide your feet and a light for your path. As you remain steadfast in His Word, you will experience His faithfulness and discover the abundant life He has prepared for you. Stay strong, my friends, for the end is truly glorious!

In a world that often demands our constant striving and battling, there is a powerful message for all believers: do not fight, but REST. Resting can become your most potent weapon during this season.
God never intended for us to live in a state of perpetual struggle. The Bible teaches us that God’s grace is sufficient for us, and that we can find rest in Him (2 Corinthians 12:9). By recognizing our need for God’s strength and trusting in His provision, we can find true fulfillment. Instead of striving in your own power, surrender to God’s grace and find rest in His love.
• Rest as a Weapon Transition
Rest is not a sign of weakness. But it is a demonstration of trust and surrender.
Just as our physical bodies require rest to rejuvenate, our souls also need time to replenish. Resting in God’s presence allows Him to restore our weary hearts, minds, and spirits. In those moments of stillness, we can find solace and clarity, enabling us to face life’s challenges with renewed strength and perspective.
• Establish Healthy Boundaries
Rest also involves setting healthy boundaries in our daily lives. It means learning to say “no” to excessive busyness, unrealistic expectations, and unnecessary distractions. By creating space for rest, we allow ourselves to recharge and ensure that our focus remains on the things that truly matter.
In this season of your life, I encourage you to make “REST” your secret weapon. When you release the burden of constant striving and surrender to God’s loving arms, you will find – peace, strength, and renewed purpose.
The Father says,
“My children, Today, do not fear releasing something small in your life. Trust in My plan, for I see beyond what you can comprehend.
Sometimes, you hold on tightly to things that may seem insignificant, unaware that they hinder your growth and block the blessings I have prepared for you.
Though life may seem as pebbles beneath your feet, I promise a transformation. Open your hands and let go of those attachments that hold you back. Give them to Me, and I will replace them with something far greater. With faith, perseverance, and unwavering trust, I will turn your sorrows into radiant diamonds of lasting joy.
I will pour My grace and provision upon you. I will reveal new opportunities, deeper connections, and a sense of purpose. Trust that I am a faithful God who will never let you down.
“Rest” is your steadfast weapon against weariness and anxiety. In the calm refuge of rest, you will find rejuvenation and renewed strength. This will empower you to face each day with unwavering courage and resilience.
Put your trust in Me because I am your rest. Seek comfort in My presence, where you will find a sanctuary of refuge and renewal. Allow your worries and anxieties to slip away, enabling Me to rejuvenate your spirit. Within Me, you will discover the genuine essence of rest, empowering you to face each new day with a refreshed heart and unwavering strength.
Fear not! And take the courage to release the small and make room for the extraordinary. Always remember, I am by your side, accompanying you every step of the way. Trust in my guidance as I lead you towards a future brimming with blessings and abundant joy.”
In conclusion, as we start July, let’s remember three important things: letting go, holding on to God’s Word, and finding rest. Trust that God has great plans for us that are even better than we can imagine. If we let go of things that hold us back, we make space for amazing blessings from God.
It’s important to read and understand God’s Word with joy. When we do that every day, it gives us strength and helps us make good choices. Taking time to rest in God’s presence is also important. It helps us feel refreshed and calm, and we can find answers and peace there.
Just like turning a plain pebble into a shiny diamond, God can turn our sorrows into lasting joy. So let’s be brave, have faith, and trust in Him as we go through this month.
