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.
ONE DAY I CRIED ~
I saw the faith of a friend and I wanted that faith. I decided to cry out unto God myself. How about I surrender my will to God's will and my life will change. A change for the positive and one day I took a step of faith and it lead to another step of faith. Fatih comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Opening the Bible brings life unto your soul and helps you to move forward.
You might see someone strong, but you can not see what they have gone through in life. Behind the scenes of everyone's life is a story. A story that only some people might know. Last night I was leading a women's study and found myself just saying things off of topic. When I was done, I said wow where did that come from, but I knew it was God. After the class, a woman came to me and said, I liked the end of the class the best. Your words really did hit me and thank you. She left quickly, but I came home to replay those words. I really felt God use me last night and I began to thank him for any opportunity I have to teach. Yes, I cried, but with a thankful heart.
How about you? Are you waiting on something only God can do in your life? Do you need that new beginning today and a start over in life? It's yours for the asking. It is simply but often we make things harder than they are. Just say this and mean it, God, I ask you to forgive me of all my mistakes (Sins) and come into my heart. Help me to understand your words (Bible) and help me to forgive myself. Help me to forgive others who have wronged me too. AMEN
I'll leave that prayer right there for you to think about if needed. Here is why, the enemy of our souls makes us feel unworthy or wanted in the land of the humans. God wants us to live in freedom of yesterdays or even today's of life. He has planted hope, grace, mercy, forgiveness and all good things in our lives. We only need to accept the love of God and begin to talk to him. Stop asking so many whys of life and move into his presence of a new day. Only God see's inside you and only God can give that true peace of life. Sometimes we need to look at life through new eyes. Eyes to see beyond the hurt, brokenness of life and our very own mistakes of life. I know this too well and I thank God that he bought me through the hardest things of life to be able to lead others.
IS YOURS and when you feel it, you might cry with a grateful heart
To know me, is to know I chose to overcome yesterdays. I chose to allow God to use my uglies (Mistakes) of life to help others. I'm not proud of some of the things I did in life but I am proud of myself today for pressing forward everything of life. It became time for me to stop blaming others and forgive. My daughter taught me this, forgiving is needed but you don't have to put someone back into your life. Wow what a true statement and learning daily to let go of what you can't change. The freedom cry is amazing and you begin again in life.
BRING IT BACK ~
IT's ALL ABOUT THE FREEDOM BABY
Darlene used to say this statement all the time, "It's all about the freedom baby". It caught on in our women's class at church and it was fun saying it. It's not only fun but true. God has planned this new day of freedom in front of us. Let's go for it and chose to believe BIG. Don't let the enemy of your soul take another minute of your life, after all you broke with him and wrong thinking! Your new life is in Christ and it's time to live free of negative thoughts or negative people. Keep that happy cry of freedom.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
