Psalm 40:2 New International Version (NIV)
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
HEAR MY HEART ~
My heart hurts with others face hard things too.
Life isn't just about prayer, but about praise. If we could only see the good in which God has already done for us. He has created us to bring him prayer times and praise times. I enjoy listening to worship music and seeing the things God has blessed me with in life. I search for answers in some areas and I rest in other areas of life. It might sound crazy but life is full of change. It is in those changes that we grow stronger or weaker. It depends on how you view things and where you choose to rest your heart.
Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Rest in knowing who is in charge of your life and allowing him freedom to handle it.
As I wrote before, there is a beginning and end to all things of life. Some people count on you to be strong, joyful, encouraging and see you a person of faith. Some people might only call you when they have a problem. Leaving you to wonder where are the people who encourage me? Where are the people who say they care but they don't want to bother me? Where are the people who live for Jesus and will pray? How have ever wondered about life and how people either press into your life or back off? I certain have thought this and life continues to amaze me at times. Please don't tell people you care and never contact them. Jesus cares continually and will never leave you.
Jeremiah 29:13 New International Version (NIV)
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
A promise by God that if you seek him, you will find him. Seek the Lord through daily living, scriptures, praise and just knowing he is there. Take time to talk to him like you would a best friend. The joy of the Lord is your strength the Bible says. Let us not grow weary in well doing and able to stand strong by the power of God. Maybe life hasn't turn out the best, but I am certain if you stop and search your heart, you will find joy in many moments of life. Miracles that have taken place and you just forgot about them. God is so able to handle every single thing you experience. You must look for the good in everyday life.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
