As we go into a month of prayer next month. I want to hopefully give a glimmer of hope through remembering the goodness of God.
I had a wrestling of sorts lately between not truly understanding how to figure out the next step in some areas of my life and overly focusing on things I can’t control.
My deepest desires are to please God in every area of my life. I know a few areas where the surrendering hasn’t happened because of the fact that my death grip prevented it. That is until today. I was encouraged to look back and remember.
Many times life does what it does and seems to give us some spiritual amnesia. Forgetting what our Almighty God has already triumphantly done.
What can’t God do?
Ladies, don’t lose heart.
Psalms 27:13-14 NKJV
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!
I have seen the Lord show out in my life. I choose to remember. The almost 19 years of marriage. Experiencing God healing my body from several major illnesses. Allowing the news it was physically impossible for me to conceive be reversed as I found out that I was pregnant with our oldest child. I’ve experienced God providing food while making our last meal that was in our fridge and giving our baby most of it all to have a friend surprise us with something to eat. Seeing our oldest in the hospital declining and they doctors saying there’s nothing left to do. Then God turned it completely around. I remember being at the hospital as they tried to convince me that I was miscarrying. This was followed by 8 more months of he’s not viable then being born with no health issues and is healthly and almost 12 years old. I experienced God reverse a permanent procedure which allowed us to conceive our youngest. I experienced God deepen my faith as He held us as we heard she needs surgery or she’ll die. The surgery could kill her as well.
So many things to reccount too many for this short time.
He then miraculously keeping her and us through surgery. Keeping life together through her heart surgery and then bringing her off of life support after being on it for 5 days.
Remember how Christ saved you and kept you.
How He Loved you when you were in some of the worst times of your life. Also how He held me through the losses of loved ones including losing three children.
With Christ the impossible becomes possible!
Matt. 19:26 says
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26 NKJV
Remember ladies !
Draw up God’s resume’ and see that He’s more than capable of handling any situation that comes up in your life.
Ps 91:1-6 says
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
Psalms 91:1-6 NKJV
Don’t let what you see limit how far God can take you .
I’m reminded of a scene from Facing the Giants where the boy said he couldn’t carry a teammate to the desire location by the goal post because the person was too heavy to carry. The coach blindfolded him and told him to keep going and every time it seemed like he was going to give up he kept saying this:
Ladies others are watching! So don’t forget to look back lest to forget the goodness of God!!!!!!
