Trust that God Knows Best...
Life can be very hard sometimes, and we may often wonder why we were dealt the hand that we have had to experience. We may question God and sometimes we may even become angry because of the things we have had to go through. We must always remember that God is a good God and we may never understand the why behind some of the things we have endured, but we must trust God always.
I look back at many things I have went through and I can honestly say it was because of the wrong choices I made, but I have grown, and I understand better regarding making certain choices in life. I'm not saying that I'm an expert, but I am saying that I have learned so much from my failures that it actually made me a better person. I'm now more sensitive to the feelings of others where at one time in my life I was more focused on my selfish desires. I have grown from my failures and now it has helped me to not only understand myself better but also others.
God is so in control of our lives but many times we fail to see His hand actively orchestrating those very concerns we carry every day. The word of God tells us to Be Still and Know that He is God. God desires that we trust Him with all of our heart and to lean not to our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). This is the very thing that gets many of us off course because we think God needs our help and then we start thinking and then we start doing stuff God never asked us to do.
If you find yourself at a crossroad right now or maybe you feel confused and just don't know what to do, my suggestion is Psalms 46:10 until His will becomes clear. Be still and carry-on with your life knowing that God has your best interest at heart. God is not mad at you, God is not looking to punish you because He loves you and wants to bless you real good.
Stop trying to figure things out because this will cause confusion and frustration. Rest in Him knowing that He is in control and will work things out for your highest good. Believe this and rest assured that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf.
Be encouraged and thanks so much for the visit and keep looking up!!!
