TIME GOES BY QUICKLY ~
LUKE 16:10 ~
"Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
DOES IT REALLY MATTER ~
So many things change in life and we look back to realize some little things, were just little things. We also realize that some little things were big things in our lives. Learning and growing from each situation of life. I wonder how many people keep playing over little things and they have become bigger just by their thoughts? I have done that before and it's crazy how replaying one thought, just leads to another.
Isaiah 26:3 New International Version
You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
It matters what we think upon
I try hard to keep my mind at peace. The battle seems to be within and it becomes my choice what I think upon. As a new day is here, so are new thoughts and new things to be done. The Bible says to seek him.
Matthew 7:7-8 ~
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
DOES IT REALLY MATTER ~
What you ask for matters. Be careful and guard your heart. I know that sometimes I've asked for I haven't seen yet, but that is where my faith comes in. I believe God has a bigger plan and sometimes my plans get changed. I didn't understand why my dad went to Heaven when I was 18 years old. I was angry, upset and couldn't see how God was a fair God at all. In those younger years, it was only God who grabbed my heart and unveil his plan. At that point and time of life, even though it was a crazy time of life, I didn't know God. I only know I prayed that God would let my dad be okay. It wasn't until I heard a story from someone else who was 18 at the time of their dad's death that things unfolded for me.
NO, life was't changed immediately and things happen that still brought much pain. But little by little, God was bringing to a new play of life. I can look back and see how my choices helped me in many ways and hurt me in many ways. Just a fine mixture of God and life. My parents had attended church, but I didn't. I thought I knew it all as a teenager and I was about to enter college. My choice was to stay far away from that place and I didn't like what I had saw. Yet, after my dad died, I knew my mom needed to go there. God began dealing with my heart as the messages were spoken. It took over a year for me to understand even a little of what was happening. After all, I had built a brick wall and it wasn't coming down.
The brick wall came down over time. I didn't understand the Bible or much about life. I certainly had a lot to learn and life continue to have changes in it. Today, I don't know the changes in your life, but God does. I believe he brought you to this website/blog to read this. Your life is important and the things that happen to you is important. Little by little we can feel refreshed but it can take time or happen immediately. Trust in God with all your heart and lean not to you own understanding the Bible says. It is our choices that matter!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends! I thank you for your time, your support and prayers. YES, you matter and YES, things will get better. Don't become bitter over things but allow it to make you better. I know somethings can be crazy hard, but I know you can do it!
