August 5,2012

Trust in the lord with all your heart. That's the message we should be shouting. We get in th pitfalls and forget this principle.  Life comes at us and we fall, we are like dominoes, one push and we tumble.  It doesn't have to be like that.  We don't have to fall every time life throws us a curve ball.  How do I know?  Because I have been there, just like you.  I have swayed from East to West.  I have wondered and not found my way.  I have crumbled under pressure and I have forgotten that God's plan is best.

Don't you think if He's taking care of the birds, He will take care of us?  In principle we all know this.  However, really think about what you have chosen to trust God in and what you haven't.  I bet you'll be surprised to discover there's more there than you realize.

Our purpose is to be taught by Christ so that we can fulfill our purpose here on earth.  Timing is everything and as I tell myself on a regular basis, our will must align with His will.  Without that key component, nothing will every come to bear fruit.  We are His people and He will show us our way.  Of course, we will have to be obedient and trust in Him, even when the circumstances look bleak.  I know that I'm not talking to the wind here.  Many of you have experienced it already and many more will.  It's part of the growing up process.  We are not just getting older to be adults; we are maturing through the trials and tribulations of life.  We are His to mold and the sooner we realize it the better we all will be.

When I write, I have experienced much of what I talk about.  I know what it's like to stand still and wait patiently and I know what it's like to fall hard and barely have the energy to get up.  We must stand still in order to receive the full glory of our Lord.  He is patient, we are not.  But in patience, we will find Him and He will meet us right where we are.

Accountability is the key to success.  If you are floundering and don't really trust that Jesus is as big as He really is.  Get together with a friend that is spiritually sound.  Someone that will pray with you, encourage you and find Scripture to minister to you.  Ask Jesus to help you see beyond yourself.   And of course, you can always send me a message, I'm right here, waiting to pray for you.  I hope today finds you well and I hope that you take some time and spend it with Jesus today.  Every morning is a blessing to our souls.  Don't start your day out until you thank our Lord.  It makes the day so much better.

Psalm 32:8 NKJV:

     I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Psalm 56:3 NKJV:

     Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.

Psalm 33:21 NKJV:

     For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.

My prayer today:

O, Lord, help the women all over the world trust in You.  The ground is shaking and the winds are blowing but You are near.  Everywhere we look there is destruction, pain and loss.  Please take our hands, our hearts and our minds and make them Yours.  Bring forth patience so that we can be still and trust in You.  We know that You are God but often, when things get rough, we revert to worry, depression and helplessness.  You are our hope and our Savior.  We come before You asking that You would help us trust You in every circumstance.  Give us the ability to stand strong against evil and protect our families as we spread Your name.  We are one with You, from every country and every nation, being called to serve a purpose, Yours.  Guide us today with Your eye and teach and instruct us in Your ways.  You are mighty and powerful and we want to stand with You all our days.  Continue to mold us as we seek You and grow us up so that when life's pitfalls hit, we will stand and wait upon You.  You are the reason we get up every morning, be with us today and every day.  We love You Lord.  In Jesus name, AMEN

Until tomorrow...
