While I'm Waiting

This verse means a lot to me and right now it describes what I'm feeling and what I need to do.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall guide your paths." Proverbs 3:5&6 (NKJV)

If I give God all that I have in my heart He wont turn me away and tell me that He doesn't want what I offer. He tells us to "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4 (NKJV) If He tells me my desires will be mine, what do I have to worry about then? He's got it all under control! It's my turn to give it to God and wait for Him to do the rest.

Jesus, I Need You

On A Day In The Knowledge from Above

Recently, I've been going through a rough time emotionally. Even though the Lord has contained me and held my hand through the whole thing, I've not always been so obedient and listened to him. I've been wanting to do my own thing. Well, this has had costly results. When I was growing up, my dad implemented God into my life. I think I always defined myself as a God and Jesus believer but didn't really ever felt it. It wasn't until the beginning of this year that my life and my Christian outlook changed and I've trusted God with all my heart, and so I have been healed from many ailments, regardless of which area of wellness.

All of us go through rough times at one point or another. One of mine has been now. However, now that I've let God take the wheel, this hardship has suddenly become much easier. I've been thinking about how when we go through troubling times, we complain; we say that there is no point of going through such thing and why it happened to us. However, when we let God take control of the situation, beautiful things come out of it. This has been the case for me. Even though at first, when this hardship started I was broken-hearted, and this had costly consequences, when I let God in, this broken-heartedness has become something beautiful and has taught me something I always had a question about. I'm still not 100% but letting God take the wheel has been the greatest recompense I could have ever received. What I'm trying to say is, when you're going through a rough time, don't try to lean on your own understanding or try to fix it or even protest (I know it's hard but it's so worth it at the end), let God take control. Say, "Lord, I place this in your hands". Or even say, "Jesus, I need you". He will hear & LISTEN. I promise.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,and do not lean on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make your paths straight" -Proverbs 3:5-6

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." -Psalm 34:18
