1. God can do absolutely anything He wants to do.
2. He will not do anything against His character or Word.
3. God’s ways are higher than ours and He sees the past, present and future all at once and lives in them all because He is not bound by time like we are.
4. God is the Great Physician because He knows us better than anyone because He lovingly made us.
5. Faith releases His healing n in our lives.
6. (Here is the difficult one:) Sometimes He heals differently than we want but it is always for His and our best.
7. Healing can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual but God always heals the way you truly need it best at the moment you humbly pray for healing.
8. You may still have the physical impairment because He needs you to know He is enough for you and you have not learned that yet or so you may help others.
9. God always wants and works for what is best for His work and you.
10. Trust is faith that God has healed you in the way you need it and that He is in loving charge of you.❤
So, ya don’t want any problems? Join the club. The goal in life is not to get through it without anything happening. Not only is that literally impossible but horribly boring and leads to spoiled, self- centered boring immature brats sitting about, wanting to be waited on.
We are alive to serve and worship God.
Trouble comes because God loves us enough to grow and mature us and show us His love for us by caring us through everything. We grow, we mayure, we develop into people who serve and worship God through trouble. Unfortunately there is sin in this world and we are stubborn with pride so learning has to happen through trouble.
The best thing we can do is not avoid trouble but be contrite and learn the lesson quickly and get quickly to serving and worshipping God. ❤
As tears flow generously down the afore stained cheek, he mourns.
For loss of complete family and years of criticism, he breaks.
For neglect and demands and no free space, he wishes more.
While seeking meaning and purpose, he is scoffed.
In deep hormonal imbalance of teen season, he is insecure.
For him, I write love. I write courage. I write understanding. I write meaning. I write purpose. I write eternal security. I write truth. I am his Bible.❤
Friends lately have so many battles of their own, I hate to burden them with my little myopic problems so I tend to keep them to myself and share that load with Jesus. See, He understands. He has been abandoned, betrayed, lost loved ones, been tired, been lonely, been overworked. Jesus gets me because He lived it long ago. So I just have to remember that. Sometimes I forget because He is invisible. Lol out of sight, out of mind for me. Lol So, I am reminding myself to share my burdens with Jesus. And you do the same if by chance you have some burdens. And we will feel better on the other side of it. Never give up. Love you!❤
Without struggles in our lives, we can not know ourselves and what we are really like, how we handle pressure, what we need to work on, how we learn, our pride level, so many things. If we only possess a perfect life in which no conflict was present, for one it would be dreadfully boring and two, we would never have the opportunity to know or improve ourselves beyond the extent of the mirror looking at the outer shell of ourselves. To truly know ourselves and what we are capable of and what we need work on, how can we grow wiser, learn, challenge ourselves, learn to lead, etc.? And without knowing ourselves deeper, how do we know God deeper, whose fingerprint is below the seen, in the soul and not on the seen shell? Not that we are God but that He reveals Himself in us in our inner soul when we worship and follow Him. Every great novel has an antagonist and a crisis. Some have several. Would it be worth the read without it?
Excerpt from my daily devotional Inspirational Thoughts for Mothers:
“There is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still. -Corrie Tin Boom
” To give thanks to Him for all things is indeed very difficult… For it includes giving thanks for trials of all kinds, for suffering and pain, for weariness, for the crossing of our wills, for contradiction, for reproaches, for loneliness, for privations. Yet they who have learned submission will… Hereafter see all the links of the chain, and how wonderfully even those have fitted which at the time seemed to have no adaptation… This belief enables them to praise Him and give thanks now for each thing, assured that the God of love will do all things well. -Priscilla Maurice
“Trust in the dark bri GS triumph at dawn. – Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
” When I cannot understand my Father’s leading, and it seems to be but hard and cruel fate, still I hear that gentle whisper ever pleading, Boris working, God is faithful… Only wait.
“So, if your every human plan and calculation has miscarried, if, one by one, human props have been knocked out, and doors have shut in your face, take heart. God is trying to get a message through to you, and the message is: ‘Stop depending on inadequate human resources. Let Me ha for the matter.’ – Catherine Marshall
I don’t know one single person right now with a perfect life, one free of trouble. Not one. And that is disconcerting and simultaneously expected. This life is no picnic, the Bible tells us it would be this way. People are happy to believe the good stuff and get weird and offer see with the bad stuff. One thing you realize with the addition of years and experience is that you take the good with the bad or you will be lonely because every single person has both. Every one. Me too. So calming the troubled waters of our souls, our family, our church, our community, our world is an extremely tall order, one which goes against human nature’s affinity for badness. So the answer for this must involve the goodness, the good side of us as well as the superhuman, God. So God is the hope, see? His nature is not corrupted with this affinity for badness. He is beyond reproach, able to reach the heart and what!tter strongholds. So the cure for trouble is prayer to God, our way to leave the physical and goto the spiritual realm and also our sacrifice of pride in asking Him for help, believing with faith that He is the only help and hope we have. And the waves will subside. We will still have trouble but we will be changed to know we are not alone ever, we are not unloved ever, and when this life is over for us, we have a home with God. There is enormous comfort in that. And co fort is getting harder and harder to come by. Thank God for this hope and help.
