Let it Go!! Trust!!

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever,
For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.
~ Isaiah 26:3-4

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7

In times where your mind wanders and you feel your thoughts drifting to negativity or areas of darkness and fear, bring them captive to the Lord. Bring them into His presence, surrendering them, and letting God bring you back to His light and peace. Yes, this is a hard process, but the more frequently you do it, the easier it becomes. When you give it all to God, He promises to bring you peace and comfort, to lead you in the path everlasting. That doesn’t mean the pain will go away or the circumstances will change in an instant, but it does mean that God will be with you through them, reminding you that He is bigger than anything you may face, that He is stronger than the challenges, that He knows the direction you must go to achieve His perfection! Let go and let God! All my love, and as you go through your day, may you find your heart and mind focused on the glory and beauty of God!

Good morning—Be still!

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
~ Isaiah 55:10-11 ~

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7 ~

God’s way is higher and his knowledge is deeper than yours. He knows the plan and path you should be on and is constantly working things out so that his will can be done in your life. Give thanks for the life and breath you have this morning and cling tightly to the knowledge that God hears your prayers and knows your needs. Trust in him midst the trials and tribulations of your life, knowing that the he is making all things come together for your good. You may not feel his presence, but press on, knowing that he is with you every step of the way, guiding you to eternal perfection.

Be Still

Be still and know that I am God
Trust in me though life can be hard
I will guide you through the storms each day
Setting you on My path to steady your way
All things will work out despite how you feel
Have faith and My blessings will become real
I love you more than you will ever know
I promise to never let you go
Trust in me and I will keep you in regard
Be still and know that I am God

All my love and may you be blessed beyond measure, continually in prayer, listening for God’s still, small voice, and thankful for every gift and blessing in your life–no matter how small. ❤

In God’s Hands!

The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him,
but his grate anger is against all who forsake him.
Ezra 8:22b

We serve an awesome God! He is always there to guide and protect, to keep you in His refuge, and to graciously supply all your needs!

There are numerous verses in scripture that refer to God’s hand being upon you, and as I read the book of Ezra, I found six verses about God’s gracious hand being upon them (and there are only 10 chapters!).

When you trust in God and call upon His name, you can fully trust that he is with you! It is His hand alone that leads you out of trouble and into safety. It is His hand alone that protects you from the enemy, from the principalities of darkness! It is by His hand that you have courage to stand on the Word of God and speak it into the lives of others. It is by the Lord’s hand that you are provided wisdom. All this just in Ezra…10 small chapters, with so many reminders that God has you! Imagine if you did a study on “the gracious hand of God”, how inspiring that would be! Hmmm….I think that may be my next writing!

Blessings to each of you and may you feel the hand of God moving in your life!
In God’s love ❤

Run the Race! ~ Lauren Daigle (Trust In You)

Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31

As I continually embark on life’s journey, there are always hills and mountains that hinder me. There are valleys that bring me low and rivers so wide I feel I will drown if I even attempt to move! Each and every day brings challenges that are beyond my control and most assuredly, well beyond my strength! I know that scripture says that God does not give me more than I can handle, but truth is he does that all the time (1 Corinthians 10:13). However, he never gives me anything I can’t handle with HIM at my side.

There are mountains I can’t climb, but He carries me over them every time. There are rivers I will certainly drown in if I try to swim across, but He sends His boat to carry me across. There are valleys that bring me to a state of despair, but He continually encourages me, reminding me that He is on the other side waiting with open arms! There are temptations that my flesh desires greatly, but as always, He is there whispering words of love and grace, opening a door for my escape.

God is so good, and as I look back on my life and where the journey has taken me and brought me, I consistently see where God’s hand has steadied me and provided the rock on which I stand. He has guided me, strengthened me, encouraged me, and loved me through it all. He never promised life would be easy, but He promised to be with me through it all (Matthew 28:20, Deuteronomy 31:6-8).

“Behold, an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered,
each to his own home, and to leave Me alone;
and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you have tribulation, but take courage;
I have overcome the world.”
John 16:32-33

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed;
perplexed, but not despairing;
persecuted, but not forsaken;
struck down, but not destroyed;
2 Corinthians 4:8-9

God is good, always has been, always will be! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, and in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5, Isaiah 26:4, Psalm 62:8).

Sheep of His Pasture

Be very careful, then how you live–not as unwise but as wise,
making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
Ephesians 5:15-17

Waiting Once Again!

I am so ecstatic at the way God moves, but let me assure you it is not always easy. There are things in life we all desire. Perhaps a job, a spouse, children, to travel, and on and on the list may go for some. However, I find it so amazing how God moves. No matter my desire (or yours), he moves in his time, not mine, and always for my best (and yours!). Looking back on my life, I can say with confidence that every time God said no to my desires he brought something better than I could have imagined into my life. Every time he asked me to wait, he met my desire to the fullest. Job lost everything in his life that he held dear, but in his heart and soul, deep within his spirit, he knew God had a plan, and what a plan it was indeed. As he waited during the catastrophic struggle of his life, he held tight to his hope in God’s promises, and was blessed beyond measure, more than he could ever have imagined.

I want to encourage you, to tell you, that though you may be walking through the darkest valley, struggling to keep your head above the water, or crying out to God in the moments of loneliness, HE IS WITH YOU. He may be telling you NO to your hearts desire. He may be asking you to WAIT for the storm to pass. He may be telling you YES to things you don’t think you want. Hold tight, pray, seek his face, meditate on his word, and rest in the truth that he WILL work ALL things out for your GOOD and for his GLORY.

God be with you, and may you feel his presence as you wait! All my love ❤

 Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.
Proverbs 8:34

Wait

Waiting Once Again!

Waiting

Crying out for Your will to be done

Hoping
Pressing onward
Stepping out on faith that all will work for my good

Serving
Ministering
Focusing on Your agenda and not my own

Worshiping
Meditating
Waiting on You to move Lord God

Just be Held ~ Casting Crowns

A big thank you to Kellies Korner for recommending this song to me!!  Just what I needed to hear tonight.

May you surrender tonight, let go of all the chains that bind you, and know that God is on the throne, orchestrating every event to bring you to the place he has predestined for you! Just rest and be held!
