Good morning all-
I'm heading out to work early this morning and then going to watch my son play in a basketball tournament. Hopefully, I will be able to write a few blogs while away. But if I don't get the chance, I wanted to sit down this morning and leave you with a Scripture that I found yesterday. I think it's pertinent to trusting in the Lord and it has made me think a lot since yesterday. As a matter of fact, I fell asleep and never woke up last night. That's what it means to trust in God and not yourself. I could chalk it up to exhaustion but I know that the peace I felt all day came from God. My worrying never gets me anywhere.
I went to lunch with my sister-in-law and we talked about trusting in the Lord. What does it mean? I think each one of us faces our own insecurities so only you can answer that; but inevitably it means giving the control up and believing that God is near, that He does listen and that He will figure out Your problem and fix it. We just can't be in control of everything. It really is a sin and guess what, I'm working on it. Like I always say, I'm a work-in-progress.
So whether you love control, like to worry, fear the future or just can't sleep because life is on your mind, meditate on God through Scripture and see what He reveals. It will be worth it, I promise.
As you know if you read this blog, I love the Psalms. They have comforted me in times of great trial and they have filled my heart with thankfulness. David was a man after God's own heart and that's what I want to be. A woman who seeks God and is glad in Him. David wasn't perfect and I'm not perfect so it's a great fit. We need to be reminded that most of the people depicted in the Bible were not perfect Christians, as a matter of fact, they were very flawed. Jesus was the only perfect man and He had to die to save us all. We are blessed because He fulfilled a covenant with His Father and we must stand firm on that faith.
I hope this day finds you well and I hope that this Scripture ministers to your soul the way it has mine. I love when God reveals Himself to me and I see Him so majestically. Be with Him today my sisters and He will show you the way.
Psalm 37:3 NKJV:
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Normal words but packed with so much meaning. We are His, we dwell in His land and we are fed by Him through the living word. If you're not seeking Him on your own, you're missing out. He is everywhere and all you have to do is open your Bible, open the Bible application on the iPhone or your smart phone. He is near ladies and He's the best listener out there.
My prayer today:
O, Lord, move Your chosen to become more like You. Help us to trust in You and to do good wherever we live. Give us a passion for You that will carry throughout the world. We need to know You through Your word and through our relationship with You. Grant us time to sit with You and to honor You for all You are. Help us to be more thankful for the things You provide and for the people that surround us. Give us energy to do Your work and to be faithful servants and provide us the wisdom to help those that don't know You. You are the rock by which we stand. We dwell in Your land and we must be fed daily in order to serve You. Provide the manna through Scripture and guide us through the waters. Help us to be strong in faith and weak in pride. We need You Lord and we need to hear from You daily. You stand before us in this world and are everywhere we look. Protect those that are being sought for persecution and show us Your mighty hand in everything we do. We are looking for You, be with us today and every day. You are our King and we thank You for every minute we can spend in Your sanctuary! In Jesus name, AMEN
