Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord

A recent situation within my community spurred me to call the mother of a teenage boy who acted in a manner that concerned me greatly. In speaking with her and retelling the story of what took place, the mother exclaimed her frustration with everyone.

After  allowing her time to vent, I quietly asked her “Well did you go to Jesus?”

Exhaling heavily, she said “No, no I did not.”

I reminded her that we should always seek God first and be careful at how we try to reach out to humans for help. We will be disappointed every single time! We need to trust in the Lord.

““But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”” Jeremiah‬ ‭17:7-8

To conclude, I also reminded her that she needed to stop blaming others, her son, family and even herself for all the problems she is going through… She wasn’t blaming the right person!

Reflection

Thought: Who are you blaming for your troubles? Read my post, it is time you go to War! Be careful that you do seek Christ first in all things.

Prayer: Abba Father, your word tells us that the evil one has come to steal, kill and destroy. Forgive us when we choose to seek help first from others instead of going straight to you. Lord help us to trust in you alone so that we are like trees planted in water, flourishing and producing good fruit in season. In Jesus name. Amen

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
