“There is victory in accomplishing the little things”
That’s the mantra I tell myself in moments I feel life is getting a bit stressful. It allows me to focus on one thing at a time and not worry obsessively about the future. I’ve learned also that there is nothing truly special I need to do to talk to God. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done but anyone can talk to God at anytime. Sometimes I think that is the part that scares people the most. They think that they will lose their independence and become a ‘religious freak’ when it’s the complete opposite. I once had those thoughts but I have them no more.
I have chosen to put my faith in God so I don’t have to worry or fear about little things because He will work through me exactly as I am.
The truth is I can’t fix everything and neither do I have an answer for everything. When my husband and I decided to start this blog we did it purely out of faith in the hope that we can encourage one or two people and whatever comes of it is only an added bonus but in life it’s always good to simply do what you love.
For those of you who may not understand what it means to have a relationship with Jesus just take the simple steps first in getting to know him. Sometimes even five minutes everyday could spark that desire to know him better. Once you know what the word of God says about you, and understand His love for you, your confidence will begin to grow, and you then begin to see yourself the way God sees you so you slowly build that unshakeable trust.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
“Trust in the Lord with ALL your HEART and lean not on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways aknowledge/submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Dear God, I pray for my new friends this evening, and ask that you will make their hearts receptive to what you will have your Holy Spirit put into them as they learn to completely trust in You. That you will help them keep their focus on you and not be moved by the things happening around them. Lord I pray especially for single parents who may sometimes feel that they are doing things alone. I pray that as you have been my pillar, you will hold them up too and let them know that they are not alone, and that you know them by name. That you alone can, and will meet their every need.- Amen.
