I haven’t written for awhile because I just felt like I was unqualified. I felt like I needed to be more in order to share the things God put on my heart. You see, the thing that I struggle with is my feelings. They aren’t always true. There are so many times that I feel things, mostly thoughts about myself, or what other people are thinking, and they are just wrong. I wish that wasn’t the case – but it is! I’m so grateful that God gives me the truth, and in so many different ways. He has given it to me through His son, Jesus, who said I am the way the truth and the life (John 14:6). He has given it to me in His Word, the Bible. He has given it to me through the Holy Spirit. He even uses other people to show me the truth, which is so awesome! Every time I’m dealing with an issue, thinking I’m at my wits end, crying, wondering what I should do, God provides an answer.
The other week I was frustrated because I wasn’t sleeping well, stressing out trying to figure out the solution to this problem, and someone from across the world sent me a clip from a sermon giving me the exact message I needed to hear! I never told that person what I was dealing with, this was something given to me by the grace of God! I know that if God is reaching out to me from the other side of the earth, encouraging me, then I can do the same for you! I can encourage you with testimonies, the things that He has done for me, and the things He is doing in my life. I know this is going to help me in my journey, and hopefully inspire you. If God did it for me, He will do it for you too! All you have to do is ask! John 16:23-24 says whatever you ask God in Jesus’ name He will give you – Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete! Trust Him – the answer might not be exactly what you think or come in the time you expect, but God is faithful and will provide. I’ve seen it time and time again and look forward to sharing my experiences with you!
