Will I Ever Learn?

God, you are endlessly faithful.

When I am overwhelmed, you remind me of the peace that comes from bringing order out of chaos.

When I was alone, you gave me the husband and family I always dreamed of.

When I am down, you provide encouragement through the words of friends.

When I was sick, you directed my steps and put a light on the path that would bring me to wellness.

When things look their darkest, and I can’t imagine a way out, you are ALWAYS there with me, and you never fail to light the way.

And yet, I continue to fear.

To worry.

To take everything on my own shoulders and try to face every problem alone.

I forget that You are Greater than any problem, any fear, any worry I might have.

I forget that You are ALWAYS there for me and I am NEVER alone.

I forget that there isn’t anything I can’t handle if I just remember to hold your hand and let you guide the way.

Forgive me, father, for not trusting in you enough.

Teach me to fully trust in you, to make my first instinct to run to you instead of to worry.

Remind me of what it looks like to worship and trust in you like David did.

Teach me to trust in your guidance, and be on the alert for the sound of your voice.

Grant me the patience and wisdom to follow your lead, and to stop trying to handle everything alone.

Thank you, Father, for your forgiveness, your love, and your endless patience.  

Don’t give up on me.    Love, M.

Day by day, moment by moment we surrender to Him, and slowly loosen the grip of our circumstances. It takes time to learn to hear His voice, there are times I wish it was easier to hear. I often say I wish God would send me a telegram, telling me exactly what to do and what will happen. I am so glad he never fails us. Worry accomplishes nothing, trusting in Him accomplishes everything. Thank you for encouraging us and pointing us back to the right path.

Blessings ~

The very core of your writing while sounding agreeable originally,
did not really sit well with me personally after some time.
Someplace within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while.
I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and
you would do nicely to help fill in those gaps.
In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly be amazed.

After all, one can get their share of steak and chicken from
any number of places on the Vegas strip. A number
of weddings took place around this area which is called the Discovery
Cove of Clearwater Resort. It was a perfect scenario for one of those happily ever after moments.

more your can reduce or even prevent damage. “Methylcobalamin is required for the function of the folate-dependent enzyme, methionine synthase. Not only are they good for you to battle illness, they also aid in weight loss.
