Don’t Let Go
I have no story today, but in my praise of God I write to remind myself and my readers of God’s wonderful kindness and mercy. Over the years, I have grown in my faith and trust in God, and I tell you it is a wonderful reassurance to know that he is with me always, understanding my fears, my hurts, and whatever else I am going through. And every morning when I wake up, the love of God, by the precious Holy Spirit, encases me, keeping me strong and healthy one more. I give all of the honor and glory to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 2: -18 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
Although there has been, and still is, many times to turn around and go backwards to familiarity, my comfortable ways, I am continuing on my path. I thank Him for calling me, and giving me the strength to remain on course, serving Him while reaching out to others in an effort to provide relief to them through the assurance of God’s goodness and mercy.
Today, I share a pledge that I use each day to encourage myself of God’s love, even when my circumstances are not as I expect, or want, and no good thing looks to possibly happen from them. Finishing my third book now, “Treacherous Deceit,” I am in awe of God’s direction in my life. Three years ago, I did not want to write an e-mail, not to think of writing a book. It has been a long journey, but with the assistance of the precious Holy Spirit, my mother, and my husband, I am working on its conclusion now. Still so much farther to go, nevertheless, I am trustful that God is faithful and will fulfill all that he has promised. However, whatever existence awaits me ahead, I know that God is in control and with His guidance; I know I will always glorify Him for his mercy and great love.
For my readers that are fraught as well, I want to encourage, and come in agreement with you that the desires God has placed in your heart, you will accomplish. Then both you and I can reach out and encourage others of His great love.
Regardless of what others say or in spite of of how the circumstances appear, there is always a pot of gold, with God, at the end of the rainbow. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
God is good.
His word says He is faithful and just.
He forgives me of all my sins.
His word says whenever I pray, He hears me.
And if He hears me, I have the petitions of my heart.
If I lack wisdom, I only ask of Him and He gives to me understanding.
I must ask in faith and doubt not that He hears my prayers, and helps me when I ask.
What I do, I do of myself;
But when I ask Him what to do, I believe and walk in faith that the things I do, I do through His guidance.
If things are not as I expect or is discouraging,
I will praise Him even then, and be thankful for even that, knowing what I lost was not his will.
His is better.
Prov 3:5-6 ” Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
