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;

When My Puzzle Pieces Do Not Fit

Putting a puzzle together can be fun, enjoyable and somewhat a relaxing time when the pieces all fit correctly the first time.  However when it is a puzzle with thousands of little pieces that require a great deal of time trying to figure out what piece goes where it can become frustrating, at least for me. Many times I have had to rely on the box top picture to navigate me through the placing of each piece and even that process can be irritating. Eventually the pieces do all fit exactly the way they were created to fit and the perfect picture is formed.It is a victory of sorts for me as patience is not my best quality.

 But what about when our life's pieces are not fitting together?

I had this certain picture I created in my mind, a picture how my own pieces were to fit together, my perfect box top per say. However the pieces I chose I could not force them to fit. No matter how I placed them, pushed them together, they still would not connect. My box top picture was not the pr…

She Shut The Door And Poured

2 Kings 4:5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out.   2 Kings chapter 4 tells the story of a widow woman on the verge of losing her sons to pay off the debits owed. With creditors on their way to take her only means of future support, she cries out to the prophet Elisha. Following his instructions, vessels are gathered and the little bit of oil she has begins to flow in abundance..... after she shuts the door. With many vessels now full, she is able to sell the oil, pay the debits owed and her sons remain with her. She shut the door and poured it out....... Those words erupt in my heart. A Godly woman she was. she poured her heart out and her needs were met. But she shut the door! Too many times in life I have a need , a wanting, a desire but yet can not hear what the Lord would say all because I have left the door open; a open door allowing the voices of the world to pour into my heart and not the promises …

Sifting Before the Shifting

I have been hearing the Lord say " shift" for the last year.  Shift in the atmosphere, shift in our nation, shift in the church, and a shift in me.  When I think about the word shift, I see a grand swope of the hand of God moving all into a direction of peace and wholeness.I believe without a doubt He is doing so, however I never once entertained the though He'd have to do some sifting.... sifting in me.

Sifting is a process, a two part process, when sifting wheat. First comes the threshing, the beating of the grain using a flail. Second part is the winnowing, throwing the mixture in the air allowing the wind to blow away the lighter chaffs and the heavier grains to fall back down for recovery.  I take a closer look at this process and begin to meditate on how it applies to my life.

The threshing  is the process of removal; removing those things which will cause me to stumble.When God begins to remove, He does so with the intent of replacing; replacing with those thin…
