I would like to praise God for what He is doing in my life and my family’s lives. His Word is teaching me to be patient, have faith, trust Him and to be still and know that He is God.
I used to always think I had to be in control, in charge of everything, make everything right for everybody and change the people around me to what I thought was right. God is teaching me to be patient and wait on Him and that He will always answer my prayers. It may not be the answer I am wanting or as quickly as I want it but, when I look back, I always find His way was better than mine for those times I didn’t get what I asked for when I asked for it.
Since I have stepped back and daily make a conscious effort to turn everything over to God, it is amazing the miracles I see happening around me, promise after promise, while I keep my faith and trust in Him to lead me. I no longer feel like I have to be in control. I let God be in control. And those times that I try to slip back into my old way of thinking, that I have to fix everything and make everything right, I feel that gentle tug on my heart to be still and let Him be God. I no longer feel like I have to please everyone. We all know that is impossible. I just strive daily to love others, be kind and stay in His Word.
And, as I continue in my walk with the Lord, I am seeing daily my children getting closer and closer to Him, which is one of the biggest blessings in my life. I give all the praise and thanks to God for that. I’m seeing marriages becoming stronger, my children bringing their children closer to the Lord, finances improving, more forgiveness and understanding towards others, and much more.
Nothing is too big or too small for our God! He cares about our every need. We just have to ask and have faith.
