Staring can get us in trouble or embarrass us. Sometimes we stare through things when others may think we are staring at them or something else. Sometimes we stare at people we find attractive or we do not like.
When you see something you like or want you can stare or you can take the stairs and go after it. I know I have let my fear get in the way many times in my life and sometimes it was too late to get back what I lost. Everyday the news reflects the loss of life and it saddens me. We fight so hard to be right instead of being together and loving one another.
In each new day, I ask for strength, grace, and love, and to be able to hear, see, and feel the Lord as I walk the path he has chosen for me. We strive to be Christ-like but we must remember we will never master it until we get to heaven. God has great plans for me and my family. It’s important to remember patience as I wait for my husband and in the process I learn more compassion to share in my ministry for other single parents longing to be closer to the one with the one.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
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.
What we do, what we say, and how we treat others matters. There are days when I feel unseen and unheard and that what I have to say doesn’t matter to others. As quickly as that comes in to my head; I dismiss it. We all matter to God and when you live for him what you do to glorify him will matter to those he wants it to matter to.
When we make choices in life; we must be willing to handle what comes from those choices. Even the greatest of intentions can cause harm. With God he will take the bad and use it for the greater good.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus..
It’s a terrible feeling to feel trapped or locked in somewhere that you are unsure of; I know from experience. In both relationship and career we find ourselves locked down in a situation where we try on our to find the solution. Trying to solve a problem without God is the mistake that keeps us locked in; we are our worst lock to finding peace.
Jesus is the key to our salvation. Only through Jesus can the lock that binds you be released. This world is filled will happiness and sorrow. We must seek God through the sorrow to find the happiness that he has for us.
As I write these very words I remember many things that I faced to get to this point. Alone without someone to love me is overwhelming at times. I have little faith in the dating sites because it’s difficult to tell by a picture who that person is. I ask God to unlock me from myself so that I do not block my true love from finding me through my fear.
From The Sunday Times
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
What do you do when you feel squeezed? What can you do? What will you do? God does not tell us play by play of what we will be doing or what we are supposed to be doing. We are guided by his truth and with each day and each step we take we must focus on Jesus. Focusing on Jesus is the only way we can be certain that we are doing what he wants us to do and being what he has meant for us to be.
I have my dreams and God knows the desires of my heart because he has put them there. The desires of my heart have changed considerably over the past 3 years. The love I have known and where God has lead me to; makes up a more perfect love in store for me. The man I am meant to grow old with and adore does exist I just may not have met him yet. God is working with him, as he is working with me, to make us more perfect for each other than we could ever imagine.
My career is God’s and his alone to command. I have dreams of what I want to do but God will dictate what it is I will do. I do not lean on my own understanding for I know nothing compared to God.
