Trust Him

Proverbs 3:5~6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

Isaiah 55:8
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.

As we learn to trust God we’ll find out that nothing ,nothing can happen in our lives unless God allows it no matter how
it feels or looks
and as we look back we’ll see that God’s plans are working for us Hallelujah

1 Peter 5
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while,
will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Romans 8

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called
according to his purpose.

The word of God assures us All things are working for our good Hallelujah so we continue trusting God and staying in his
word he will surely take care of us

Transparency

As Christians we sometimes give people the wrong ideal we sometimes try to pretend that we are perfect but we need to be real and let others know that we have serious flaws instead of trying to hide, others are going through so much and our testimony could help them to hold on and cry out to Jesus for help and salvation. Before I got saved I remember buying a gun I don’t know why but I started to kill myself but I kept thinking what will happen to my children if they find me, because as a young woman with 2 children life became overwhelming to me But God kept me and he’s still keeping me through my daily trials and tribulations. God is so good and he loves us so very much we can’t even imagine the great love God has for us so no matter what you’re going through do not give up because God sees you and he cares about you just where you are right now.

Psalm 33:13 ESV

The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man;

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Psalm 147:5 ESV

Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.

Jeremiah 23:24 ESV

Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.

Isaiah 41:10 ESV

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

God is willing to help us because he loves us Hallelujah

Psalm 139:13-16 ESV

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Reminders

Even now in your fear,doubt and confusion anger being miserable and misunderstood feeling alone and being alone being sick even being sick for a long time being disappointed and depressed feeling unloved even hated upset even highly upset! We will go through some things and situations in this world we never even thought of I may have missed mentioning where you are right now,but just remember Jesus Christ knew our journey and He is aware of where you are right now . At times life gets really hard and our minds start to act in ways we are ashamed of because no matter how hard we try we can’t control them,have you ever been there? I just sit and think sometimes what’s really going on I’m sure you do too! But I’m also aware that Jesus is for us and He will never leave us I’m also sure about His love mercy and grace and without Him we could not possibly make it through these trying times and keep our sanity. I’m learning that no matter where we are we still have reasons to give God praise it may take awhile but it will come, because the Holy Spirit will bring it He also gives us great encouragement and comfort. We have to remind ourselves we are only human and we will never understand things that happen to us family or friends the best we can do is keep trying to pray {that gets hard too} and trying to stay in the word whew some days we don’t feel like doing either but we are still Loved and Adored by our Heavenly Father. A few scripture I find helpful if you’d like leave me a few you use

Isaiah 43

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God

John 11

So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days

21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

Oh how often we feel this way Lord if?

2 Corinthians 4

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Romans 8

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We absolutely need Reminders
