8 You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.
9 My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help.
This I know: God is on my side!
DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?
Your a child of God and created on purpose.
Sometimes I cry over things in life. I remember being a little girl and wanting my mom just to listen to me. I would try so hard and I would hear her say, "not now". She would continue to say, "go to your room". It was in that room that I would cry. I didn't know God in my life then. So I began to talk to my stuff animals. I sit them up in my room and I began to tell them that one day, I would teach others to be kind. When I grow up, I will listen to kids and never make them feel not important. Their little voices matter and I can see that so clearly now. The kid inside of me just sometimes cries even at 65 years of age.
YOUR VOICE MATTERS ~
Open up with a voice to talk to God.
God know how to answer back! He want the best for you and wants you to ask him things. Seek him and believe big. There will be times when God says not now, but trust me. Have you ever heard those words of trust me and that person failed you? I have and I have times when God says wait. Waiting is hard for us because we are so use to getting things now. I want to take you back to the year 1960. I started Kindergarten that year. I remember my mom walking me up to the door and saying bye. I was so scared and I cried. Adults might not realize that those little kids are being left with a stranger and now you must do what the stranger says. The stranger has a name and the title teacher. Who would know that was only the beginning of leaving you at school and trusting a teacher.
I have volunteered a lot in school for my granddaughters. Teachers have became my friend and I see how much they need help too. Kids still cry when they are dropped off at school and we never know the depth behind those little lives. Ms. Ortiz and Mrs. Messner are two of the best Kindergarten teachers I know. They compassion shines for these littles and even a hug. When they read stories from a book, I feel like a kid too. A good teacher makes the child want to come back and enjoy the next time.
Fast forward to being an adult. God has wiped away many of my tears. He has carried me in times of not understanding life. I look back to see the tears of mine that turned to prayer. Prayer is a key factor in life and helps us in all seasons. I have seen miracles of life and thank God for helping through each season to see his power, his love and peace. Not everything turns out the way I think it should, but I see how God continues to guide my life. Through it all, I've learn to trust the Lord and do that with all my heart!
GOD IS ON MY SIDE and YOU TOO!
Let us turn our tears to praise. Let us see how one day bring change but his power remains the same. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I hope that you see happy tears today and know that God is able. Keep that those three words at the top of your thoughts: GOD IS ABLE. That alone brings so much hope and knowing nothing happens today without the knowledge of God. Our very own action makes things happen. Take care of you and send out positive messages to your family and friends too. All of my tears, have turned into blessings. I can see so much today and I thank God for using my life to help others too.
