I have so much to share about Him.

In Beth Moore’s study of Breaking Free, she writes, “Christ does not always immediately calm the storm, but He is always willing to calm His child on the basis of His presence.”
Oh how many times, because of distractions, have I taken my eyes off Jesus? I let the distractions and circumstances of the world, cause me to take my eyes off Jesus, resulting in me tumbling down into the deep water’s of life. It was because of another force, (the wind) that caused me to stumble and get off track of the path of the righteous life. After the fact, when I hit the water, I realize what was the cause of the fall, and it is up to me to re-focus my attention back on the Lord and get up again.
I remember the wind as a child frightened me, and in the night if I was staying with my grandmother, I would curl up as far underneath her as I could possibly get, feeling safe with her. I remember talking with her about the wind one night in the dark, I couldn’t see her, but the calmness of her voice when she told me that, “the wind is what God uses to talk to us”. She said if you lay real still and quiet, you will be able to hear his voice in the wind, telling us that it’s okay, not to be afraid, for he is near us. I laid there for a few minutes, listening for his voice. I told her that I didn’t hear any voices, and she said just “be still child, you will hear it.”
I don’t recall hearing God’s voice through the wind that night, but I did feel a peace, enough to fall back asleep. To this day, everytime I hear the wind, I feel the stillness and the tranquility of His peace, that He gives to us, that makes me no longer afraid of the wind. It not only makes me not afraid, not just of the wind, but it gives me the boldness to face each day, with an ear for hearing from Him, and a heart open to recieve His love and nurturing.
I thank God for the people, He has put into my life, and the lessons I have learned from Him, and through other people. It is amazing, that He is always there, and I can always feel His love, no matter what the circumstances are.
God told me to do something yesterday, and I did it. I also did it secretly to ensure that God was given all the Glory, as He should be. Later on in the day, a friend called me and told me about her day. She was so excited because she had been blessed that day, and told me on the phone that it was probably someone at her church that did it. Immediately my flesh wanted to say, “No it wasn’t, it was me.” but I didn’t for had I , she would have been more focused on what I had done, rather than the true gift, and the true source of the gift in which she received. She told me that because of this, she was able to witness to the lady that was riding in the car with her. Wow, two people for the Glory of God! That’s amazing! All in all, she told me of what the blessing had meant to her and her family, which was good. The most amazing part was that I got to see all the things that God could do with a little amount. I was able to see for myself all of God’s Glory! I also had a well needed exercise, of taking the focus off my flesh, and “not about me” scenario.
It was an amazing experience, being obedient to God and seeing all of His Wonder’s! If I could do it all again, I would do it better, so that nothing would interfere with sharing of His Glory! Not a single doubt, insecurity, or feeling that the flesh should be acknowledged. God is so good to me everyday, but yesterday was more amazing than ever!
Thank you God for the privilege and honor of serving you, I only hope that He will use me again real soon.
Anyways, my friend told me that some of my anxieties is due to unbelief. Unbelief? What did she mean, of course I believe! I don’t think she was referring to whether or not I thought God existed, no, it’s deeper than that. Do I really believe that God is able, capable, and willing to handle things that are precious to me? You would say, of course, He is the one who gave them to me, but to really, really believe that God loves me, and has my best interest at heart.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that HE is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
I think that the verse above, Joshua 1:9 really signifies what I should do, and even if I am not completely convinced, believing through my doubt is the way to overcome it.
Until next time,
