I am alive!! Yay!! I am finally feeling better 😄 thank you Jesus! I’ve been sick on and off for almost two months now. Having this cough and cold is no joke! I still have a little cough but not as bad. So Lord willing I will be back to more blogging, more sharing, and just more of Jesus. I needed this time to just and ask God what is going on with me? Why I’m I getting sick so much? I was reading my Bible and trust was always on my mind. It’s so simple to say that you will have God lead you and you know His ways and plans are better, but do you trust Him?
One of my good friends asked me last week to share and do a guest post to her blog. (when you have a moment check out her blog, it’s a blessing, it’s faithfoodfitnessforreal.blogspot.com )She asked me to write about trust. I knew it was God’s perfect timing. He always works things like this together. Here it is. Enjoy and be blessed! “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him”! (Psalm 34:8 NKJV)
Monica asked me last week to guest post and I was so flattered and excited. I have been blogging on my own for over a year now and it is such a blessing to get to share my life with everyone, at times it can get challenging. Since you expose so much of yourself in such unpretentious words. When I decided to actually start a blog I did a lot of praying and I guess you can say “soul searching”. I was worried if I didn’t really have much to say, or the right words to say them. I even thought, “Why would anyone want to read about me?” Then Jesus spoke to my heart. He reminded me that I will not be on display. He will be. His love and His Grace that has been in my heart and my existence for almost seven years now.
All that being said, I’ll admit it that I have been kind of downhearted lately. Life is just moving by and I cannot seem to get a grasp of it. However, my faith is not based own conditions. I am choosing to trust God and His promises. I am choosing to trust God in helping me deal with my singleness. I am choosing to trust God to heal me from this ugly cough and cold that I have had for over a month now. I am choosing to trust God to guide me and give me His wisdom so I can get done with school and get my degree. I am choosing to trust God in this season He has me.
Life’s journeys have a way of bringing all of us to an occasional bitter pool. When we have something that puts us our life on hold or our everyday activities, we get (meaning me) get impatient, bitter and not a very fun person to be around. We stumble upon unpleasant experiences when we least expect it and they can have a way of rocking us and our faith to the very core. It can be sickness, major regrets and losses have that effect upon us. At a time when we should desire for sweet water to refresh our drained souls, it seems like all we have to draw from is bitter.
I know that at times it can be hard to just trust. To be still and let God be God. We are standing at a bitter pool and crying out to God, it seems like the transforming power of the cross is nowhere to be found. No matter how diligently we ask, seek and knock, the bread we so desperately want is still a rock and the fish we believe for still feels like a slimy snake. But Jesus promises us that the heavenly Father will give us what we long for if we trust. He will give us the desires of our hearts. In His time. And indeed, when we hold a stone long enough, it will eventually turn into bread, and that scary squirmy snake will turn out to really be a fish. (Matthew 7:7-11)
