TRY AGAIN ~
There are times when someone breaks the trust we had with each other. Leaving us feeling empty inside or maybe angry. What ever happen to keeping a promise and treating others as we would like to be treated? Not everyone thinks the same. When I say I trust you, then I really trust you. Just like God does in our lives. He trust us to do the right thing and we trust him that he will answer our prayers. Even some of our unanswered prayers are prayers in disguise.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV)
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
I TRUST YOU GOD ~
I will plant in hope and I will trust you through this journey of life!
There have been open doors ahead of me and closed doors. As I think back today, I find myself seeing that some of my prayers were answered immediately and others I still wait on. Through it all, I trust in God for strength, courage, wisdom, and peace.
The Bible says this:
Isaiah 40:29-31 NIV
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
MY HOPE IS IN THE LORD ~ RENEW MY STRENGTH
As I read this verse today, I thought of how Popeye the Sailor Man Cartoon would find he needed strength. Going to a can of spinach. It was amazing how this made him how power to handle what was in front of him. I can totally relate this to emotions I have at times. When I need that added strength, I do not open a can of spinach but I put my trust in God and it increases my strength. Each of us face hard things in life and how we handle it matters.
I choose daily to pray in the mornings and give thanks for all I do have in life. I have a busy day set before me and not feeling well today. As I began to write, I felt the scripture of renewing your strength. Yet, will I trust God through it all and ask for his amazing power of strength. As I walk with God, I walk in love, peace, hope, trust and all good things. Casting down those negative thoughts and just giving thanks for a new day.
We never know what one person faces in one day. It's not a good thing to assume things, reach out of you and help someone today. Even a message of love or smile changes a life. I don't know what you are going through, but God does. He has connected you to this message for purpose. Know that you are loved and important. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
