When I Am UnCertain

Repost from Shaking' the Foundation
April 16th, 2015
*********************************************************************************


I am not immune to uncertainties in life. 
I have my share just as the next person does. 
Times when I have no idea what step to take......
What decision is for the best........
When my judgement is clouded by circumstances.....
And I feel as though I am drowning in my situation.

The misconception that is viewed upon those in the body of Christ is we never have bad days....
No doubts, uncertainties, fear or feelings of weariness and despair......
When we do have those days, we are to smile and act as though nothing is wrong because that would mean we have no faith.
 Or the painted picture of the world is to be a woman or man of faith  we walk through life all sunshine and roses without struggle one.
I have even had some mock me with their words " Where is your Jesus now?"
Wrong answer..... 

I have learned the stronger my faith becomes, the more battles I have.
Therefore I have times when I become so  weary in my flesh, I have my own uncertainties as to how I will overcome the task ahead of me. 
Even Jesus himself cried out to God when he was in the Garden of Gethsemane praying before he was arrested.

Luke 22:42
'Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."

He knew what his fate was and the task that laid ahead of him.
But look what happened after he cried out.....

Luke 22:43
An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.

It is when we cry out to our daddy God he sends the help we desire
The answers we need.......
The peace we long to have wash over and in us. 

My uncertainties do not come from the battles or decisions ahead of me. They come from my own lack of strength and wisdom. 
They will manifest when I lean to my own abilities and not those of my daddy God.
Today I  read these words......

Psalm 32:8
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. 

Proverbs 24:14
Know also wisdom is like honey for you:
If you find it, there is a hope for you,
and your hope will not be cut off. 

Being a woman of faith does not mean I will not have trials and tribulation in this life.
God's word tells us that we will have those. 
He also tells us he will never leave nor forsake us. 
Being a woman of faith  does not mean I will not fall in life, make mistakes or sub-come to the pressure of life. 
What it does mean......
I know who to lean on.....
I know where to turn for wisdom....
I know where my strength comes from.

There is no shame in having uncertainties.
It's is through my weakness  His power is made perfect.

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 

When I am uncertain..........

  1. Hi Stacey, shoo, tough post. So true though, the more one's faith grows the more battles there seem to be. We NEED God every day. Sometimes I think I am a little like Jonah, seeking to run away, but there is always that big fish to bring us right back to where God wants us. And He sustains us and strengthens us for what it is He has for us. Great post my friend
    God bless

I Don't Know Her Name........

 Over the weekend, I was blessed to travel with an amazing group of people to my home away from home, Cleveland Texas.  It is there supplies were brought and large cooking pots were fired up to cook and serve the community members after hurricane Harvey marked this town with his damaging winds and flooding rain. Serving and caring for those who have suffered a great loss tends to pull on the strings of my heart, however this precious lady not only pulled on my heart strings, her meek and humbleness has lodged a place in the depth of my soul. 

I had watched her walk through the church parking lot, shoulders slumped, her foot steps appearing to be in slow motion with her eyes scanning for someone to talk to. There was softness about her; a presence of need.  She asked if she had to register to gather the supplies she needed. After explaining to her she did not need to register and was welcome to take anything she needed, she humbly began to take a few items, she did not want to take …

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…
