This was written about two years ago, I was struggling with paying bills, losing the apartment, unable to have my child with me (because I did not have money to care for him, so he was with father). Also going through heartache, and dealing with everything alone, but not completely… God has always been there for me, in good or bad situations. I won’t go into detail but I have been through many traumatic events, as a teen and young adult. Yet God always made good of what the devil intended to kill me with. 🙂 Here is something I wrote for encouragement during a rough time.
*I have a lot going on right now, the Lord said to me the other day “I will catch you”. I am holding on to that! He also said that why I am alone in this situation is so I lean on him completely. So I am going to profess Gods goodness over my life right now.
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
*That states God will do more than I could think to ask, or ask for…. But good or bad
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.
*That says for your better, not worse, God is not trying to harm you.
*Then When you’re in the trial or situation, you always wonder “How could this turn good, how could I possibly have something good happen from this?”
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
*As parents, if your child wants to play in the street, you tell them no. Even though their bike rides faster and smoother than an unpaved driveway, we see the danger and tell them no. Like a parent, God wants the best for us, and even though we cannot see why, that is where faith comes in; I choose to hold on, rather than be angry or stubborn, but instead obedient. The hardest prayer to ever pray is: “God may Your will be done”, with tears streaming down your face. You understand this if you have ever prayed for a loved one dying, or when someone you love you cannot have in your life. Leaving up to God and letting go of control, is so hard, but always worth it.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
****God bless, hope this helped someone other than me****
