Psalm 139:13-15 New International Version (NIV)
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
GOD KNOWS ~
My heart's desire
Often times we wait and we don't think God's timing is perfect. I believe Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future God has for each of us. If we could only give our complete heart to God and lean to him in understanding of things. Not everything has turned out the way I thought or even wanted in life. Some very hard times have come and have gone. I can look back to see God at work even in those crazy times of life. My main focus in holding onto God's unchanging hand. He has promise to keep me and I know that. He has promise to give me a future and I know that. It is good to know where you place your trust and holding onto God.
As a kid, I wanted to grow up and teach kindness to others. I was a kid who hurt because of negative words said to me, kids teased me and I lost self confidence. I thought I was like everyone else, but I wasn't. Why would kids tease me? There have always been bullies from the beginning of time. You can read about mean people in the Bible and how they treated others, but guess what? There has always been a God who oversees everything in life and knows your next step. God gives us free will and our hearts desires. It doesn't mean that we won't go through somethings too.
This picture of a beautiful baby is my granddaughter. I watched my daughter go through so much heartbreak before this baby came to earth. My daughter lost her first child during pregnancy. It didn't make sense to my brain of the why of that. Only God knows and two years later, she became pregnant with a beautiful baby girl. That girls fills the hearts desire of many. It took a waiting time, praying time and trusting the Lord through days of not understanding. Today, the baby begins to crawl and has two teeth. Life is changing and we see her growing. Everyday it feels that I love her more and I feel that way about all my grandchildren and children. My mom's heart is unexplainable and I love being around my grandchildren. I think I understand the word GRAND now.
Daily ~ I pray for over my children, grandchildren and all the lives to come. Prayer is powerful and God knows the desires of our hearts.
Psalm 37:4 New International Version (NIV)4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
I believe that's the way God feels about each of us. He wants us to have his best, but he always give us free will. That free will gives us time to go to Church and experience his love in community. A place where healing can come and new friendships can be made. I can't imagine my life without the people I know now from church. I hope you have a home church too and find yourself growing daily in God's word (Bible). Life can be full daily of peace, hope, love, joy and all good things. It is needed in the days of heart break or the big wonder of why. God helps us to stay firm in him and no waver in faith.
It's a new day and it filled with opportunities unlimited to us. Go ahead and trust the Lord in a new day. Take on his promises and keep them close to you. He promises never to leave us and guide our lives by his word. I am happy that I am alive and I do my best daily to help others. I not only teach kindness but I live it. I hope this day is amazing for you. My thoughts and prayers continue for you the reader of my blog, your family and friends. Thanking God daily for words to write you and pray over you. I thank God for my beautiful grandchildren and able to live an example of Jesus before them. Happy new day!
