You'll Understand... One Day!!!!

As of late, I have realized that your life may never coiencide with anyone elses life around you. I have come to also realize that you must always keep your focus. You may never really understand and that is perfectly fine. There comes a time when you must praise your way through every situation, keep your strength and recognize your God, despite how hard things may be or feel!!!

We as humans will make many mistakes. We as humans will not understand what is going on.
That too is fine. All we have to do is Trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean NOT unto our own understandings. In all our ways acknowledge Him... & He shall direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).

God is not expecting us to understand why he may get us so close to a situation and then take us far away. He is not expecting for us to not wonder why He presents us with opportunities... Then with a snap of a finger, completely redirect our path. But... What he is expecting:

>Is for us to completely trust in Him.

>Is for us to set back and let God be God (He needs no help being God).

>Is for us to praise our way through every situation.

>Is for us to seek Him at all times.

>And then He wants us to show appreciation.

Now don't get me wrong... It is so hard to do this, and it is easier said then done.
But for God to see that we as humans are trying... He smiles upon that.
In God's word, He says; The LORD gives strength to his people. The LORD blesses his people with peace (Psalms 29:11). His word also says in Psalms 28:7; The LORD is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.

So... Understand too that God owes you nothing... Yet we owe Him so much!
If you keep that in perspective you will notice that things will become more bearable.

Why Not?!?!

Have you ever gone through something in your life? Lost a job... Money isn't right... Relationships on the downfall... Or people just not understanding you and your situation? Whatever the reason... If you have, then you have probably asked yourself 'why me'? But why not? Jesus endured far more then we did. And through it all... He sent up ALL the praise to God.

Why Not - pray for others rather than yourself?

Why Not - share a testimony and/or blessing?

Why Not - thank God everyday for something as small as breath?

Why Not - have conversations with YOUR Father?

Why Not - smile through your storm?


God wants to give us our desires. He said in his word (Jeremiah 29: 11-12); 11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

He also said in Matthew 11:28-30; 28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

So Why Not? Why not make it easy on ourselves. Too often we try to take things into our own hands. It is in the above scriptures that you see that if you just seek Him (JUST SEEK HIM... that's all you have to do), He can give you what you need and what you want.

The other night, I had a dream that I was standing in a crowd and a man out of no where, glowing, blessed me with $111 dollars. I was so grateful. But then moments later another man, bigger and brighter walked through the crowed to me, this time around I was then blessed with $1 Million dollars. All I could do is praise him. Upon my asking someone what that dream could have meant... I was told that is God showing me just how easy He could give me that money. How it is nothing for Him to give us what we want when we ask for it as the drop of a dime... But that He wants us to draw near to Him. Drawing near is what shows our worthiness, commitment, love, faith & how much we truly deserve His 'ultimate' blessings.

So Why Not.?!?!

What have you got to loose?!?!

At one point in time in my life... I didn't believe that I could trust in man... that is when I realized that you couldn't trust anyone other than God. That he would be the only real person that you could always count on.

It wasn't until recently that I realized that God plants people in our lives that we can trust!! That we can actually trust in a human/physical rehlm while we are on this earth. There comes a time when we have to trust and believe that God actually put a more physical person for us to commune with, love, talk to, pray with and most of all Trust.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that you should put all of your trust into man, but what I am saying is that God puts comforters in your life, individuals that you can trust to talk to. What you must remember is that no one is perfect, but that there are a few =) good Godly individuals on this earth that wont do harm to you. That your feelings are actually important to them. These people are what you can call REAL friends. Everyone else is just an associate.

If you cannot... tell someone your real feelings without them putting you down,
If you cannot... trust that someone will always have your feelings in their best interest,
If you cannot... feel ensured that a person will always have your back no matter how far or near,
If you cannot... share your goals/dreams with someone and they not encourage you to push forward... yet hate on you!

**Then you know that that person was not intended for your life in a Godly way.**

The bible says that “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
—Jeremiah 17:5-8
These are the types of individuals you should keep close in your life. People whom are God fearing, love Him, praise Him, talk with Him and exude Him!

Now know this... All types of people, even the ones you CANNOT trust are needed in your life. Good thing they are only there for a season. They are to teach you lessons in your life.

So you don't have to think that you can't trust anyone. You can, just as long as you are putting God first, and in your inner circle, keep close the real God fearing individuals... The ones that pray for you... and with you!

Trust That!!!
