God is in control, but often times our free will gets in the way and consequences happen of our own choices. God controls if it rains or not rains and the wind or no wind. Think about his power for a minute. It's time to realize our will to his will for our lives.
Isaiah 45:5-8 New International Version (NIV)
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
6 so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.
8 “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it;
I, the Lord, have created it.
WHO IS IN THE CONTROL ~
It becomes time to remind ourselves who is in control
I had the privilege of visiting my daughter and son in law/love yesterday. Their family owns a Lake House and as I sat there overlooking the waters, I saw how the lake carried stronger waves. The day before there was small waves and a sunny day. Yesterday was a rainy day and bigger waves. The wind was stronger and I saw this little bird fly to a place to rest. The bird seemed to have problems flying again because the wind was strong, but he finally did it. He was start and stop, start and stop and then fly. I was reminded of myself how I struggle to write at times. I know it's inside of me, but I start and stop, start and stop and I need to fly (write).
I must remind myself who is in control. Who created me for this time on earth and what can I write to help someone now. A quick 2-3 minutes blog daily and showing my real self will start. Yet, I feel a larger picture inside of me. I want to write and share real life. Sometimes when I sit down to write, I cry because I don't know how to start. I had someone else be to write down on paper my thoughts. Then just put it all together. I would ask today for your prayers, that you would pray I just sit down and write. God says yes to me, but I control if I sit down and write. I hope that makes sense to you.
What is it that you face today that stops you? Time is short and if we could only see that. Just last night I experienced waking up about 1am with some chest pains and hard to breathe. I got up and began to pray. As I prayed, I saw myself writing more. I saw a book complete, but it takes action from me first. God has called me to write and I know that. So as you pray for me, I will put action to your prayers. I have many people who believe in me and I'm so thankful. I don't want to let anyone down and it's time.
Please know that my prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I'm asking largely that your prayers get answered quickly. I'm also praying for the impossible to become possible. I've seen to many miracles to doubt the power of God. Sometimes we need to put action to our prayers. Never stop believing okay!
