How are you liking this new “show me my memories” thing on FB? It’s pretty cool most of the time, until you find a post that was shared with someone you’ve since deleted. (Lol) Then, you’re just reminded of your loyalty and their lack of… Or vice versa, whatever the case may be. But, that’s another post for another time. 🙂
Today, this is what popped up in mine. It’s a post I made a year ago today and I just thought, “why didn’t I blog that?”! So, here it is…
“Sometimes it seems the refining, cleaning, teaching & growing just never ends. It’s nice when it slows down a bit… but be ready for the acceleration period b/c no doubt, it will come! Sometimes it’s so hard to not worry about things you have no control over, but worry never fixes anything. Got to give it to my Jesus! He’s better at it, He knows the answers, He’s bigger than our circumstances, He’s always faithful, His love never ends, He never leaves us, He never forsakes us… That’s His grace, His peace, and His love! #joyinallcircumstances #Hesfaithful #patience #strength #courage #JOY #Hope #Love #Jesus #worshipistheanswer #prayingthrough #getintheword #bible”
Wow! Now, that is a “Wise Little Nugget” isn’t it?! I have no clue what was going on in my life at that moment but I can rehash my life up until today and it seems this statement is so true and so relevant and always will be.
I’ve had to give it to my Jesus daily in this busy never boring life I’m living and yet again, even today I’m overcoming things. I’m praying about things and waiting for answers. I’m trusting God to take care of me and my family because He said He would. I’m growing in Christ and putting my hope and trust in him more now than even yesterday.
No matter what you’re facing, a health crises, a pending adoption, a spouse looking for a job, devastating news of a loved one, a pending separation or divorce, searching for truth, confusion, desperation, depression, fear, hunger, anger, regret, whatever it is, let Christ refine you.
RUN. TO. HIM.
SHUT OUT THE VOICES AND NOISES AROUND YOU!
Let Him separate you from the mess of the storm, let him clean you out and mold you to be all He wants you to be. Lean on Him as your ultimate authority. His timing… Is perfect! His plan… Is perfect! Always!
Father, I thank you for all that you are and for all you are creating me to be. In my weakness, you are strong. In this dark world, you are my hope. When confusion or anxiety comes, you are my peace and my truth. I trust you Lord. Fully, and completely, I give myself to you as I wait on your perfect timing. I love you Jesus! Amen.
