Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
What does it mean to you to submit to God? Is that giving him all of you or just part of you? I don't really like the word submit, but I know it means surrender my will to his will. My will has gotten me into trouble and I've made mistakes. As I grew older, I learned so much and I clearly could see that God worked all things for my good now. I don't know how God can help me, if I don't trust him. I don't know how God can use me, if I don't trust him. Life is so much about trust and surrender.
God has given us commandments in the Bible, yes and no's of life. Promises and forgiveness of life mistakes. I found myself standing at the cross roads of life. Asking myself this question, "Do I want to live the rest of my life like this?" My answer was NO. I wanted to live in the forgiveness power of God and allow him to use my life. Part of him using my life is writing this blog. Daily I write, I pray and I care about the readers of my blog. I might not know your name or what your prayer request is, but God knows. My agreement with you is a connection in prayer. I know that God will help you and lead you. Your yes to God, can open amazing new doors of life.
I AM ME ~
I am convinced that God brought me through storms of life to share testimonies of his power. His amazing miracle worker power is alive. God says to ask, seek and knock. We can find God waiting on our yes to him. I have seen my family receive miracles in some areas of health, finances, and new beginnings. Broken over things that could have stopped them, but they pressed on with determination.
Matthew 7:7-8 New International Version (NIV)
Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “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.
Not everyone will understanding you, but God will. He is a true promise keeper and his word can be alive within us. We have too much to gain to loose. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Thank you for taking time to read this and let hope arise.
