Well after finally going to sleep around 3:30 AM I’m up at 6:30 AM bathroom run(more like roll in my Mom’s old wheelchair) glad I kept it ! As soon as my foot hit the floor that pain shot through my body whoa it was bad! I made a mad dash for my crackers didn’t see them chips will do,whew I thank God I didn’t fall and for good medince! The word tells us
“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”
We never know what form these Hardships will take! Doing things Gods way is always best not easy,because after all Jesus had to go through Gethsemane to get to where God wanted Him (Matthew 26:36~46) So as I’m dealing with this terrible sciatica I’m learning even more about Gods faithfulness He is truly my very present help. The way God does things seem so strange to us because we love to figure things out,and surely we know that ant happening with God. Its only by faith that we learn to lean and depend on God in every situation for He has promised
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord . “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
So as we go through we have great help the promises of God for every test and trial,I am so grateful to God for His Son my great Saviour Jesus Christ ! As we go through these difficult situations and hardships they do make us strong so hang in there God is not finished with us yet, for when He is we shall come forth bright and shinning enabled to bear one anothers burdens . Thank You Lord !

Are you tired and confused ? Are you tired yet from running from one conference to another? Are you tired of trying to prove who you are to others ? Are you tired of running from one retreat to another ? Do you know who you are in Christ Jesus? Are you tired yet of competing with others? God did not make you to be like others He did not intend for you to try and work out your own salvation! God has prepared work for each of us so we do not have to compete with others.
We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
God in His wisdom has worked out our souls salvation through His Son Jesus Christ
Titus 3:5 ESV
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit
However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.
John 6:37 NLT
Corinthians 4:8-10 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
We don’t need to run here and there we only need to run to God’s word for clarity and peace. God does not cause confusion!
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.
1 Corinthians 14:33 NLT
God wants us to know and trust Him not every word that comes from man is from God
Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
1 John 4:1 NLT
After you’ve ran and ran and listen to others have you changed ? It’s time for us to get quite and seek the Lord ! When you’re quite and listening you can hear from God and you can stop running
If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord .
13. If you look for me whole heartedly you will find me.
Even when we are perplexed and tired God is there and willing to help us get into God’s word and stop listening to everyone else.

Even though we are faced with this “monster” depression,we are never alone,God is and will always be with us! We must keep our minds renewed in God’s word,knowing that no matter what God will bring us out. God has forewarned of these times we now live,and he said men’s hearts would fail them because of fear, and the things that’s coming upon the earth will cause much fear. But we his children have many promises to stand on,and knowing that God’s word is truth gives us much hope! The things going on and coming will bring many to “Repentance”, and that’s what they’re meant to do,as well as draw us closer to God. I give God “Praise” for his goodness and “Great Mercy”!!!! God’s power to restore us and keep us is “Awesome”! Joshua 1:9 Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t Be Afraid I Am With You.
