Learning to Trust
It has been a while since I have written. Many things have been going on. To much...Life itself tries to overwhelm me if I am not careful. I have found that God is forever faithful and I can go to Him and He someway helps me to get my footing again. I am encouraged today for what I have been through mentally and emotionally lately. I have wanted to go somewhere and just scream from the top of my lungs at times the last few months. I do not know if it would help or not. I do not think that it would. I have learned though to depend on the Lord more. Also know that He is in control and I need to depend on His wisdom. We have been personally going through some difficult times financially. I mean bad. I have learned that I have to focus on the Lord and keep my eyes on Him and not the circumstances that I see and are experiencing. That is so difficult but I am trying to learn. In Matthew it says that if we seek the kingdom of God first that all these things will be added to us. Sometimes I have felt like I couldn't breathe. It seemed as though I was drowning. The pressure has been so great that it has been hard to not just sit, cry and withdraw from eveything and everyone. But I trust Almighty God. In Is. 43:1-3 says that God would be with me through the fire, waters and whatever may come in my life. He has already been there. He will go through it with me. Nothing can overtake me if I stay focused in Him. He is our source and supply. Over and over he gives and gives and gives. He said to prove Him and see what happens. I believe that when He said that He knew He would have to come through. He also said that if we would bring our tithes and offerings into the storehouse that he would open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there would not be room enough to contain it (paraphrasing of course). Isn't that grand? I am so blessed. I am standing on His word and taking Him at it. What He says He will do. Thank you Lord. I love you.
