If Jesus had enough compassion to die for us then we should have enough passion to share the story so others may feel the joy and happiness we once felt. We need to begin to search our hearts and relocate the passion we once had burning for others to be saved. I know I get shy sometimes and I hold back but every time I hold back what good is it doing? We need to come to the realization that yes we have families and jobs because we are a part of this world, however once we are in Christ our responsibilities increase concerning the Kingdom.
The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.
Ever just been freaking out about something? Trying to make sense of where you are suppose to be going in life? You toss and turn at night thinking up ways of accomplishing things? You plan every detail of your day out and then something goes wrong, throwing everything into a tailspin. Perhaps you were sure that you knew what was suppose to happen only to discover, God had different plans. That very thing has been happening over and over again in my life and I am finally beginning to sit back and rely on God to do His thing.
Just today I was trying to get stuff pulled from the trailer in preparation to move into my dad’s house for awhile and I was contemplating calling about having the trailer pulled out and destroyed when God just filled us with revelation Why get rid of a paid for trailer when my daughter was in need of a place to stay? She could afford the rent and it would be close to work. Funny how I never thought about it before. Now, granted there is a lot of work that needs to be done, but leave it to God to work this out too. He provided a man who is willing to gut the trailer completely and rebuild it.
How amazing is our God that we really do not need to think things out for ourselves? If He has already ordered our steps then why do we think we need to do anything but pray for direction? I have so much peace about the next few months as I move in to my dads, my daughter gets the renewed trailer, I get married and we move into our new home when God says it’s time. For now I am content to be staying with my dad and being able to take care of him. I am happy God is working things out in the order He already designed. I am very eager to stay in this time of total surrender, allowing God to do what He wants with my life.
Are you ready to let go and let God? Maybe it is time to just let things be. Time to stop worrying and fretting about your next steps. Relax, God has it all under control and things are already set in motion by God Himself. Who are we to change His plans?
1 Peter 1:12
They were told that their messages were not for themselves, but for you. And now this GoodNews has been announced to you by those who preached in the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. It is all so wonderful that even the angels are eagerly watching these things happen.
Alrighty! I have always promised to keep my blog real and about matters of the heart. This one might be a little open but here it goes. If you know me at all or are Facebook friends with me you will notice I never really openly smile. Those who know me at work, also know that I do not open mouth smile very often. Well, reason being my front teeth are broken and I am embarrassed to smile. As I spent most of my marriage focused on many other things, not myself I let me go. Now that God has turned my life into a tale of prosper and blessing, I am able to regain what I had lost. I truly feel like a princess!
Some of you know I have been blessed with someone paying for me to get dentures. Someone from my church donated the $5,000 it is costing to get all of the work done and tomorrow I go for the final step of the process. As I was praying last night and thinking on all the things God has done for me, I just began to weep. When God reached down and pulled me from my pit, I never dreamed of all the things He would begin to do in my life. I have been blessed with Godly friends and revivals. Prospects of a new home are just around the corner. I am being restored physically. I have two books waiting to be published and I know God has the provision for those right around the corner.
So many blessings I cannot count them! I cannot pretend to say I know the answers to why God is blessing me, however, for sure it begins with faith. When I began to truly trust in God to take care of my many needs, He started right in. Yup, been low on finances in the last three years, yet I have not gone hungry or without a place to live or a car to drive. I thought I was done at McDonalds and then I was promoted. So many different things in my life that God has just turned into blessings. Even the fact of my husband being in jail is and act of God.
Surrendering it all is the key for me. I just wake up in the morning, talk to God, give Him my day and watch Him work on my behalf. Even today at work when a customer literally YELLED at me at the top of his lungs, I did not retaliate, I just pressed on knowing God had my back. Someone in lobby even stood up for me and that was really awesome. Six months ago I am not sure I would have handled that situation the same. When I surrender my day to God, I just have this peace that passes all understanding and I know that whatever comes my way, God is in it!
So I might not blog for a bit, just depends on how I feel. It is gonna take some getting used to and there might be more pain then when I just had a few teeth pulled. Just know that I have not disappeared, I am just seeking God and keeping busy! Be Blessed!!!
