Trust In All Things.....Lesson Learned

 
 
Trust is such a powerful word.
In reality it is a powerful emotion.
An emotion that can give joy or pain.
I have been told my entire life that I trust people way too easy.
I believe it's because I do my very best to look for the good in people. I purpose to see others as my daddy God sees them. I don't look to their faults and downfalls in life, for I ,myself, have fallen many times in life.
( many, many times)
I see past who they are at that very moment and I see who they are becoming.
I see their heart............
 
My trust issues I have discovered come from a place within myself , a place I thought I had long ago removed......
Thankfully my daddy God continues to mold me, shape me and teach me.
In the simplicity of my own little mind, I believed when I prayed and turned a situation over to  my daddy God, I had left it there for him to work on.
Sadly that has not been the case.
 
By allowing myself to get wrapped up in my own emotions, believing I could fix things faster,
 I had gone and picked back up the very same thing I gave to him.
The very person and persons I have laid at the feet of Jesus.......
Last night the Lord spoke to me.
"TRUST ME", He said!!!
"Believe what I have told you and don't pick it back up from me." I heard his voice so clear.
 
That hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought I had done that.
Apparently not...........
~Geez~
 
My intentions came from a place of love........
A place of wanting healing, happiness and joy for those I love.
But every time I take  it back, I hinder the process of my daddy God. 
I get in the way of his plan......
His deliverance............
His restoration............
His healing..............
And most importantly I get in the way of Him shining His love into their lives His way.
 
Standing for those I love and taking the situation back are not the same.
Standing is praying, showing unconditional love, and most importantly listening and heeding to the voice of God as to what role I am to be in their life at that moment.
I am to TRUST him for their every need.
Just as a child places his or her trust  as they jump into the arms of their daddy.....
I am to trust my daddy God in every area.
 
 
 
 
He knows my heart......
He knows the enormous amount of love I carry...
He knows the pain I feel for those I love......
He also knows that this daughter of his at times gets impatient and tries to speed up the process......
His process.
 
I am forever thankful my daddy God loves me and you so much that he continues to teach us!!!
I am laying it down at his feet and this time I will leave it there for his work to be done.
For His ways are better than mine!!!
 
Isaiah 55:8-9
                                                                 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
                                                    neither are your ways my ways,”
                                                                declares the Lord.
                                              “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
                                                 so are my ways higher than your ways
                                                     and my thoughts than your thoughts.
 
 
 
 
 
Trusting Him in ALL things.....

Proverbs 3:5
                                                               Trust in the Lord with all your heart
                                          and lean not on your own understanding;

Fresh Bread

Give us this day our daily bread.......  The smell of fresh baked bread never fails to have my mouth watering and my nose on high alert, not to mention the warm savory taste each bite brings with melted butter dripping over and drizzling down my finger tips. To say I love fresh bread is an understatement at the very least. Bread that gives me nourishment is not to be wasted, and neither is the spiritual bread my daddy God has for me.

The last week or so, when my alarm starts ringing and before my eyes are open, I ask the Lord to give my daily bread. A fresh word, a warm aroma, and a sweet taste of his bread (word) to begin my day. Now I must be honest and say I am far from a morning person. I am not the "jump out of bed, feet hit the floor running, birds chirping" kinda girl. I am a " hit the snooze button 5 more times, slowly sit up , and pry my eyes open with a crow bar" kinda girl.  And thankfully my daddy God knows this, after all …

When God Says Go, Will You Go?

Remembering the story of Jonah , God instructs him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach against it because of all the wickedness there. However Jonah fled from the Lord and ran in the opposite direction. After being thrown into the sea and swallowed by a giant fish for three days, Jonah cries out to the Lord and is then spat up from the belly of the fish to go and do as he was instructed.

Jonah 1:1-3
The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, : Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarnish, paid the fare and went down into it to with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

I still have a time wrapping my head around the fact Jonah was in the belly of a fish for three days. I can not fathom the intense grossness of it all. Can you? Had he gon…

His Binding Love Letter

Here it is post Valentine's Day and though I am not a huge fan of this particular holiday, I do find a tender sweetness of it's meaning.

Sometimes being single has it's downfalls and holidays are a reminder that I am indeed single. Most of the time I am quite content where I am in my journey of singleness and then there are those times in between when I wonder if I will ever share my life again with a man. I do not ponder on that thought quite often as I know my daddy God has a plan and the right man for me.  This year Valentine's day was odd for me. I was not in a place of sadness nor did I feel sorry for myself. It was not a pity party holiday for me but yet I found myself wanting to hear I am loved. And I believe my daddy God wanted to show me as well. So yesterday as I read many beautiful post from what seemed like tons of flower pictures, and candy filled "I love yous", I secretly asked myself what is my love letter in life…
