Look and Wait for Truth

LOOK AND WAIT FOR TRUTH ~ Before taking any steps of action based on present feelings, God can lead and teach one to find peace, joy and hope in the uncertanty of tomorrow.

Psalm 25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

It isn’t easy waiting on a result one can’t control. And honestly, many time it isn’t easy waiting on the Lord to work things out for us, my husband,┬áme, my kids, family or dear friends.

But, every time, the answer, solution or remedy comes. Not always what I expected, but always something that was the best under the circumstances for the individual or individuals involved.

Only in time I’ve seen the many benefits on allowing God to lead me and teach me in my waiting periods which have been many even till today.

He has always come through. Many times God shows up through friends. Or an unexpected invitation to go explore, fish and fellowship with others.

God is teaching me the importance of staying involved with caring and loving people in my life. He’s leading and teaching me into building lasting relationships with deep roots and with plenty of room for growth.

Without dear friends, like Lori, I would not only have a void and sleep days away, but struggle to remain strong in my storms.

Grateful to know Lori and her husband, Jeff. They are a blessing in my husband and my life.

When A Massive Wave Comes

WHEN A MASSIVE WAVE COMES

Living His Word

Our God, punish those people. We don’t have the strength to stop this large army that is coming against us. We don’t know what to do! We are looking to you for help.”

2Chronicles 20:13 ERV

When one receives a blow of shock, disappointment, betrayal, challenging time or difficult news to heavy to bear it’s like a massive wave over us. Its power smashes us against a boulder, which can’t be move, and leaves us powerless.

When hours, days, months maybe even years passed and the boulder is still sitting there, we come to a place again and again of not knowing what to do.

From nowhere another blow has knocked out our wind, our strength, our stamina to fight. We can’t stop what’s coming against us. For the boulder has trapped us.

We then feel alone and totally helpless. Feelings and thoughts overwhelm us and we become powerless to fight the enemy of our mind, our will and at times our belief.

Then we hear a whisper, like a soft warm wind, reminding us, “It’s not your battle to fight. Do what you must. Do what you can. Then do what I’ve told you. Rest and trust in me, your Lord and Savior.

I will stop this large army which has come against you. Will you take my hand and believe that I am watching over you?

Don’t forget of those people who I’ve placed along side you. They are part of my army. They too will be fighting for you in prayer. Surround yourself with my people.

Don’t remove yourself, then cry wolf, as if you are all alone. For you are never alone. I am with you. When you are with your brothers and sisters in Christ, you will feel me there.

Don’t turn away from my ways or from me, look to me for my help. Take my hand and I will bear this burden with you until this storm passes.

As for the boulder, it’s a reminder of my power in your life. It will remain where it has been placed. In the past.

Remember, the past can return and bring a storm. If and when it does, it should draw you even closer to me than before. For we have a history together. Don’t allow the storm to wash you away from me.

I’ll fight the enemy which your eyes can’t see, which destroys the human spirit and imprisons souls.

I will fight the wind which whips you away from me. I will cover you with my hands.

I will fight for you, my child, when you can’t see any one else beside you.

Come, trust in me again, take a hold of my promises and follow me. Always, look towards me for help.”

May the Lord bless his word and his people.
