Trust

Trusting in God during times of stress,heartache and loneliness.Trying times brings a lot of things to the surface that’s for sure. I read a blog today about the Potter & the Clay,and the writer brought out a lot of good points like,God is in control of even the small things we take for granted. God turns up the heat to get rid of baggage  we really don’t need. And I tell you it works! Only God can bring good out of a bad,sad,ugly situation. It’s truly amazing  how God does things,truly it is ashes into beauty . Really we think we’re trusting God until the heat is turned up,and we get our eyes off of God,and onto the problem. Of course that’s where satan wants us, then he picks and pokes us trying to make us believe his lies! We are all  used to  his formulas ,he hasn’t  changed  since he deceived  Adam & Eve, O how I hate him! But even in the midst of our fears and doubts God is with us ,Praise Him for that,because we surely could not make it without him being for us. Um that brings these scriptures to mind : Romans 8:28 ~39  Since God called us,chose us and we are predestined- Who can separate us from his love and care.  Not one thing can separate us,nothing to come,nothing in the past or the future “Hallelujah”! God has us set for life here and eternal life,and I am so grateful. And I thank God I’m going through,that means I will not stay here Amen. I appreciate you all so very much.

Knowing And Believing

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my
helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to
me?”                                 ( Hebrews 13:5-6 )

 

The Word of God is alive and real! Get it into you by studying then when circumstances arise to trouble you,the Word of God will raise up that standard to keep you focused. Never will I leave you or forsake you,powerful truth we can totally depend on at all times. Even when we are having pity parties God will not forget us,even when we’re in the midst of heart wrenching trials God will not never leave us. When you know and believe God and His Word even though your circumstances have not changed,hope keeps you standing. God shall bring “it” to pass,it being whatever He has promised you. Right now you maybe seeing everything but what God has promised you,but if you keep believing “it shall come to pass”! God is our all wise and all knowing helper that will will always honor his Word,fear cannot even keep God away for “great is His faithfulness”.

It is a wonderful thing to be sure of God’s help at all times “Hallelujah”!

Change


Change is not easy I already know that and I’m sure you do too. Oh I do not like changes but I am sure they are for our good,and for the good of others. I’ve learned and I am still learning that God’s word is true,his ways of doing things are so far from what we want and what we think we need. I know when ever changes come into our life and we consider them bad,we want relief and we “want it now”! If relief is not quick enough some other bad boys show up,doubt and fear. They work well together I’m telling you,just in case you hadn’t noticed. It’s only been a week since my surgery and can you believe,I’m complaining already! I have been praying  moreI tell ya.For some strange reason I just knew I’d be better by now,yea right, O silly me LOL!! As I’ve said many times before I know God has a big sense of humor. He just has to have because I’m his and I need so much more work! God is truly awesome and so very kind and patient. I got so tired after my doctor’s appointment and several other stops by the time I got home my knee was huge,and very painful. Then the thoughts start coming you’ll never be the same,look at you you can’t do this and that,and right now it feels like that. But I know we walk by faith and not by feelings. Regarless to what fear and doubt try to bring I’m holding on to Gods word because that’s where my strength comes from. Do keep praying for me,the pain is nothing close to what it was before my surgery. I must relax and take it slow as my  doctor said it’s slow but it’s coming,it just seems so much more than I can bear.But I know that’s not true for God knows how much I can bear.The doctor said it will take a while for full recovery,but you know we’re so much  like that commercial “I want it now”! But our Father moves in his own way and time while teaching us important lessons.Thanks so much for your prayers and continued support.

Scriptures I’m holding on to.

Joshua 1:9
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”(NLB)

Isaiah 41
10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.NLB)
