As sands in an hour glass so are the days of our life
The time given
A certain allotment of time is given to each of us from the time of conception unto our death.
It’s not the number of days we are given that’s important it’s what we do with each day we are blessed with.
Wasted day’s & wasted night’s
Many of us go through life wasting the preciousness of each day given with worrying about everything under the sun.Does worry add a single day to your life?Does worry bring delight in the day given?
We are given choices throughout life with happiness as being one of the choices given.We can decide to trust God,walk in faith and be happy knowing he’s working everything out for our good or make the decision to worry.
” I shall rejoice in this day the Lord has made and be glad in it.”
or we can remain in the negative mind set of worry causing us to remain living in the slave mentality as the Israelites did after being freed from Egypt.Where worry and fear kept them in the wilderness for forty years when in reality it should have only taken two week to make journey. If their mind set would of remained positive,trusting and believing in the Great I Am who delivered them from the bondage of slavery believing in faith he would without a doubt bring them through everything that would come their way.
It only takes the faith the size of a mustard seed to produce miracles.
A tiny seed the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
” Lean not unto your own understanding for my thoughts are higher than your thoughts”
” the birds neither reap nor toil yet I provide for them,how much more will I do for those who put their trust in me.”
As the Israelites journeyed the Lord provided all of their needs giving them manna,a heavenly food made especially for them,talk about angel food cake right;that must have been the most delicious meal and without calories too,yet they became dissatisfied and started complaining about everything you could imagine.Grumbling and complaining day after day.
Imagine how ungrateful that must sound to the Lord who gives freely to each who asks. For a good Father takes care of his children.
” if your earthly father’s know how to give good gifts how much more will I your heaven Father then give unto you.”
” Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and he shall give you the desires of your heart.”
” Many are the afflictions of the righteous but God sees them through them all.”
” I was young and now I am old but I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor their seed beg for bread.”
Many of us are like the Israelites acting as if the Lord is incapable of meeting our needs or unable to handle each situation that arises in our life’s.I myself have been guilty of this on many occasions,taking matters into my own hands and worrying to the point of making myself sick with worry and fear.
I’m now trying to make a conscious choice in each situation,giving everything to the Lord trusting him no matter what the situation or circumstance looks like,resting in him and in his peace that surpasses all understanding for
There is nothing impossible for our Lord,he is more than capable and more than willing to care for his children
I must always remember with the faith of a child I shall believe and trust in my Father God the great I Am. I cannot be double minded for being so is not pleasing to him.
I’m learning to lean on God more.Through all the trials,test and storms,I have learned one thing.
” GOD HAS NEVER FAILED ME.”
In my life I have trusted people I shouldn’t have and because I did great damage had been done yet I have failed in trusting God which makes no sense at all. Surrendering my will for his,with much prayer and putting time in to the relationship with Father God I am much better at setting with a cup of hot tea,with my feet propped up relaxing saying, “Daddy Father God I know you have me covered and I will rest in you.”
I desire to be in my spiritual walk where when the bearer of bad news comes that nothing can be said to me that will ruffle my feathers in any way or it won’t create stress, worry,fear,anxiety or dread. I want to be able to say,” Father I know you have this.”
I no longer want the part time,sometimes,not today kind of faith I desire the kind of faith that moves mountains.
Walk through the process
It’s a work in progress,I won’t lie and say it’s easy peasy but I’m making great strides to change.Today I am much better in all my ways than I was yesterday and if tomorrow comes for me I will be better than I was today.
For this is my choice,I choose to be better in every area of my life.Will I fail,yes of course I will but I will keep my eyes on the Lord and keep walking in the ways that pleases him.
Spending time with Father God
Only time in Father God’s presence can I build a relationship with him and only through being obedient to his will can I grow in him and please him.
” obedience is better than sacrifice.”
After my journey here is through all I want to hear is, “well done my good and faithful servant.”
Have a blessed evening 🌹🐝
