In these early morning hours my soul is restless. I grab my computer and try to write down the thoughts that are running in my head.
Do I trust you Lord?
Do I trust?
When I don’t know why the answers have not come. When I simply don’t know why?
When we were little, how many times did we hear our Mom or Dad say, “Because I told you so?” How many times have I said it to Joshua and Ashley when they were little? Irony comes when I have sensed so many times lately my Heavenly Father has said the same thing to me? Bam ~
I have resisted a hard decision that I know he is challenging me to make. I have wanted to know why He wanted me to do it. I wanted him to show me when and how it would all work out before I took the next step. I sense God saying, “Because I said so, trust me.”
I know and have been constantly reminded that faith means obeying Him even when all my questions aren’t answered. Selective hearing is not a good thing to have with our Lord. It is a restless place to be for sure. I don’t know about you, but I need to work on obeying God not because I understand, but because He said so.”
I am reminded to… Do what you have been taught to do , Darla. Do what I have instilled deep inside you. You are my child, NO MATTER WHAT ! No matter what you have done, no matter what you may feel. Feelings are unreliable but my word will never wither, it will never fade. My word will endure forever.
GOD DOESN’T CHANGE, WE DO! We allow our situations to dictate who God is in our lives. When things are good, we praise Him. When things are not so good, we waver. He desires us to praise Him no matter the situation. His WORD… His LOVE…His POWER…His WISDOM…His FAITHFULNESS… NEVER CHANGES! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8)
No matter where we are in our journey, below is a promise at whatever mile marker we are on. I don’t know about you, but for me, starting fresh today, TRUST & OBEY. Simply because… the Bible tells me so !
YOU ARE MY WORK – The work I began in you, I am sure to finish. Be confident of this. I love broken vessels; I love picking up the pieces. I am the Potter, and you are My clay. My work in you began before you were born, surely I will finish it. Even now I am preparing you to fulfill it; nothing will be left undone. When you stumbled I was there to pick you up, it was only a small hindrance. When you cried, I dried your eyes, not one tear was wasted.
