Ok! In the last few weeks I wrote about how to talk to God. How to add-make time for God and family. And how to leave your life on the alter for God to take care of. Today I want to tell you about being upside down in life and thinking you made a mistake with something you are dealing with. Weather it is you left your job. Your children are on a different path then what you want them to be on. If you told that other person in your life you just do not see a future with them for what ever reason. Your money is not doing what you think it should. You had to move back home (sick family or you just needed to start over) Whatever the issues in life that is making you think you need to rethink it (insert it here).
Just stop and let me show you what God-Jesus says about it all. Lean on these truths. Do not think about it anymore. It is done. You did it (whatever IT is (if you Trust he has it now. So, here is what you can lean on…
Joshua 1:9 9Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
John 14:27 27Peace I leave with
you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let
your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him;
Psalms 118:4-6 4Let those who fear the Lord say: “His love endures forever.” 5When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord; he brought me into a spacious place. 6The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
So that is just a few verses that should bring you comfort in what is not going your way. Just stop your brain from thinking about the issues do not second guess whatever you did. let God lead you in the right path for your life. Yes! This is hard however, trust in him. Let your heart and brain lean on these truths today. Keep on leaning on them as your heart and brain want you to believe otherwise. He has you and me. That is just a fact. That his word gives us.
Dear heavenly Father,
Today as I do so bravely, I come to you asking you to come in and take our fears of life. Change them with your truths that we can read. When we go to your word give all of us the peace that surpasses all understanding. For no matter what we face each day as you bring us peace. Let us stand on your word to know that you will make it all right. Even if we did not go the way the world is telling us. For when people are saying well this or that we need to know the worlds view is not always the correct one.
For your ways are not our ways. Thank you for that as well for I do think I know what I want for my life. Nevertheless, time and time again you show up for me and make it better than I could have ever imagined. I just need to learn to keep on leaning on you and waiting on your timing. Thank you for having the patience for when we do not have any. Thank you in advance from me and my readers for going before us, hanging out with us all day and night. for we may not be able to see you there but, however your word gives us the understanding that you are. love you and I will let you get the glory for all that you do. I will share it with anyone that needs to hear the truths you do have for me and them. Glory is yours forever!
in Jesus name I pray Amen!
