Letting God.

Friday, October 10, 2014

Sometimes like throws you the ultimate curveball. Sometimes those curveballs produce amazing end results and sometimes they leave you hanging, and sometimes you just have to figure it all out on your own. Figuring out God's plan for my life has left me in somewhat of a tizzy. I know what I want. I know what I think I need. But the thing is, I need to stop with what I want and figure out what God wants. Letting Him talk control is tough, but I know His plan is so much bigger than I can even image.So I'm going to trust life and trust God.

Ever since I can remember my dad has always sent me the perfect words of inspiration at the perfect time. I have a folder on my computer where I save them and every now and then I go back and read them. It's amazing how something can be right at so many different times in my life. My dad sent me this back in October 2012. And, here we are, October 2014, and it's so fitting again. I find comfort in my family, Adam (& my new future family), my friends and in God and that's all I need. So here's to letting go and letting God.

Thought for the Day 
  
The Holy Spirit comes to us in the brokenness of our health, in the shipwreck of our family lives, in the loss of all possible peace of mind, even in the very thick of our sins. He saves us in our disasters, not from them.  In the most trying of times He points us to Jesus in whom we find peace for the moment and hope for tomorrow and assurance of eternity (Robert Farrar Capon, adapted)
God's Living Word  
My grace is enough; it's all you need.  My strength comes into its own in your weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9, The Message)

Today's Reading: Matthew 8-11 
  Really Busy: Matthew 8:1-9:8
In those moments when we think that nothing is going right and we are in trouble and there seems to be no way out,  someone noted, "Rather than saying 'God, here is my problem,' we should put the problem into perspective by saying 'Problem, here is my God!'"  Great insight!
In good times and hard times the key to peace and contentment is our perspective and how we choose to handle our particular situation.   No matter what we are experiencing or how bad things might be, God is bigger than anything we are facing and can always give us the peace of mind to know that He will lead us through and make us stronger and better for the experience. 
Always remember, that God knows you.  And he is near you!  How far is the shepherd from the sheep (John 10:14)?  The branch from the vine (John 15:5)?  That's how far God is from you. He is near.  See how these four words look taped to your bathroom mirror:  "God is for me" (Psalm 56:9, NKJV) (Adapted from Care for the Common Life, Max Lucado)
  I pray that each of us will step back long enough to hear those words of assurance and comfort and that we might boldly say, "Problem, here is my God"!  Have a great and glorious day with Jesus.
 
God's richest blessings on your day and Be There!
