How awesome is it that we worship a God who is good “all the time.” There is nothing that we can do to cause God to change. This gives us freedom from the fear that our actions will cause God to become a tyrant.
God Loves us
God loves us regardless of how we feel about him, or how we act. His love for us is a solid foundation on which we can build our lives. While we may choose wrong things and face the consequences of those choices, we can never do anything that will cause God to stop loving us.
God has a plan
God has a plan for each of our lives. This can be easy to forget during the hustle and bustle of living. So when things do not go as “we” planned it is easy to feel as if the ground beneath us is going to give way. Yet, as we follow after God we can rest assured that he will make a way for he is in control, and we will see good in the land of the living.
Repeat as necessary
God is good, he loves me, and has a good plan for my life!
Trusting God to lead you sometimes means allowing Him to lead you into places that you don’t want to go but that are necessary for growth and preparation. Yesterday I went through some hard things. No one was killed, or maimed, or hurt, but what did happen is that God allowed an area of my heart to be exposed that, if left to grow, would of taken my focus of serving and helping others in His name, and put squarely on pleasing myself. I realize now that even a pencil dot of me wants recognition for serving in His name, it will be a pencil dot too much. This is not about me, it’s about, has always been about Him. So I repent of my foolish pride, and I give all that I am, once again to God, knowing that God loves me, notices me, and that is enough. I am not sure when that door to England will open.
Maybe it will be after some more heart checks concerning other matters. But through it all I am trusting God that He would not lead me into anything, that He would not allow anything that would not be for my ultimate good. If you are hurt or wounded make sure that you turn to God not away from Him.
What you have experienced may have just been a horrible act done to you, or a mistake, or even of your own doing, but God can use it to shape you and mold you…or maybe he just wants to hold and heal you. Whatever the case…Keep turning to Him. Not only so that he may work through you, but so you may to be loved and restored, because He loves you, You are important to Him!!!! And so am I!!!!
