Faith Always

Do you ever feel torn about what be to do? You pray for answers and guidance but you don’t see, feel or hear an answer. That doesn’t mean nothing’s happening. I believe God is there fighting your battles. It may seem hope, or you’re feeling angry and in distress. I know right now I’ve been feeling all that. I had trouble understanding how anything good could come out of this. Yet God has been using this trial for my benefit. I’ve met some awesome new people, and pre existing relationships with people have been deepened. I’ve also been growing in my faith, renewing myself confidence and the passion I have for life.

Here’s some songs and verses I pray that will help you as well.

I first found this song on the radio before it was even out on cd. When my dad was in the hospital and having complications during a bypass sugery. Today, my mom sent it to me just when I needed it for my own battle. Music helps, especially praise and worship!!!

📖Bible Verses:

✞Philippians 4:13 (TLV)
I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me.

✞ 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

✞Joshua 1:9 (NKJV)
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.”

✞ John 10:10 (NRSV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

✞James 1:1-7 (NLT) Faith and Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

✞ Matthew 6:25-34 (NLT)“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Have you ever experienced technical difficulties like this before? Not just with your computer but in life as well? Things seem to be going so well and then suddenly everything crashes and falls apart and you find yourself staring at a black screen or brick wall?

So you do what you know to do, you start examining everything that has gone on in the recent, and maybe not so recent past. You have to find a reason. Why isn’t anything working right for you? Was it because you didn’t keep your word? Was it your parents fault for not raising you the way you though you should. Was it your ex who hurt you so much? Are you getting enough sleep? Are you eating right? Are you pretty, hansom, ugly?? Why, Why Why????

Maybe I should change how I do things.. That’s what I’ll do!

 And it works for a while. Things seem to be great, but then problems start coming up again. Nothing too bad. Nothing you can’t handle; or work around.  That is until ….

What!! Not again! Why is this happening to me!  What did I do wrong to deserve this??

 “If you trusted Me, then you would give Me your worries, your cares, Your concerns. You do not have t carry the burdens alone. You do not have to stress. I want you to be happy, to have joy not sorrow”

“I have given them to you Lord, Time and again.”

 “Yes you have, yet you pick it up again. You can’t solve the issues on your own. I know it for a fact. That is why I AM; here. I can help you, I can handle it.  But these things take time. I cannot give you an answer instantly, constantly. Some things take longer than others.  You may not be ready for what you want like you think you are.  Some things need preparations so you can hold on to it once I give it to you. I have a master plan.

“Then God please tell me what to do, I want to follow you. I need to be happy, I crave purpose.”

“I love you, My child. Rest in me, and I will lead you”

“I will trust you completely, My God, My King, My Father!”
