I started this post off by asking if you've ever had just a bad year. And then I went on to share a post about why I should be more grateful because I've been through much worse. I backspaced because I then read this post from Kelly. Think God was trying to tell me to put my big girl panties on and pray?
I think so.
Weeks, Months, and Years before these past couple of months, I have always wanted to understand, to feel, to be equipped with knowledge and words like my favorite pastors, or pastors wives, Christian friends, and Christian authors.
They just seem to know what to say and what to pray at any given moment. That's something I've longed for. While I'm not there yet I am working on it. It is a GOOD feeling to finally understand why there's so much praise, love, and adoration.
I didn't see why people prayed consistently and constantly before. Now? I can't start my day without a conversation without God. I can't get through the afternoon calm free without a little chat with Him, and then at the end of the day? I pray some more and thank Him for all of the opportunities and blessings He's given me.
When someone gets me anxious, I thank God for the opportunity that He gave me that I'm even worrying about. When a family member or friend stress me out, I thank God that that person is in my life and I'm able to have those emotions. I still pray for peace and patience though ha! Maybe I just don't want to get out of my warm bed in the morning and go to work. I thank God for the luxury of having a warm bed, with a warm blanket, in a house filled with love, and a job that I am happy at and happy to be going to.
Holy run on sentence.
My life has changed so much. So, so much. The relationship I have with Him is amazing. It's so good.
Life is so much better when you hand your anxieties and struggles over to Him. Life is so much calmer when you rely on His word and His promises.
"cast all of your anxiety on Him because He cares for you."-1 Peter 5:7
I know I told y'all that I wouldn't be turning my little space of the interwebz into a preaching area but I have to share this with you! I have to share my experiences with you because it IS truly amazing!
Sharing my testimony has been on my mind a lot lately. I was thinking about sharing it in different segments/parts here on the blog. Would y'all be interested in that?
Also, if you haven't already, sign-up is still open for the "A Confident Heart" online bible study! There has been a huge turn out/sign up for it so far and I can NOT wait to start this study with you! I am so shocked but grateful for everyone who has signed up!!
Happy Tuesday Y'all!
