Trusting in God can sometimes be the most difficult thing for us to do. We say we trust Him. We say it to ourselves that we trust in Him. Yet we continue to feel stressed over the one thing we keep saying we are trusting in God for. Trusting in God means giving it all to Him and believing in Him to do what’s best for you. It may not be what you are expecting but trust in God that He is working in your favor. Sometimes when we don’t see things happening as we would like we begin feeling discouraged. Almost to a point of quitting and just giving up on God. This is when you must TRUST God even more. Trust in Him knowing that he is working on that very thing you keep praying to Him about. He is just waiting on you to give it to him 100%…not 80%…not 75% and not 99%. 100% in faith in Him. Sometimes I find myself being deceived by my thoughts alone. My mind starts telling me I should just quit what I’m doing and give up. The constant thoughts of being unqualified, unworthy play over and over like a scratched up album, that keeps skipping…jumping back to that same negative thought. When I’m struggling with this battle with my mind, I start praying about it. I put it in God’s hands to guide me and direct me. I pray to Him to give me the answers I am seeking. The answers may not come right away. They may not come when I expect them. But believe me when I tell you, God listens and He does respond. He will show me how I am doing exactly what He wants me to do. Someone will reach out to me that read a post and tell me how much it helped them or it was what they needed to hear that day. The other morning I saw someone share my blog on their page. This person I had prayed for many times after seeing their struggles daily on Facebook. Sometimes I read post others put and my heart goes out to them and what they are dealing with. All I can do is pray for them, offer words of encouragement and lend an ear when they need to talk. Sometimes I pray for people and they may never know this but I seek God to help them. When I saw this person had shared my blog I was so happy. Not so much that they shared my blog but because I knew they had read it and I know this was someone that needed to hear those words that day. God confirmed to me that morning that I needed to continue doing what he has called me to do even if I am still in my cocoon stage myself. I’m just taking it one day at a time…one step at a time. Trust in Him and trust that He is listening to you. He is just waiting on you to give it all to Him and believe He will do what is best for you.
Psst…God Loves You
