March 20, 2015 WE DON’T HAVE TO DOUBT

We never know when a situation is going to happen where our world changes. It may be from a health issue we have and we are concerned about what may be wrong with us. It may be a financial situation we have and we don’t know where the money is going to come from. It may be a relationship problem or a job concern and we aren’t sure of what to do. Rather than letting these issues consume our minds, we need to seek peace. We need to practice patience with these interruptions in life, trust in God and wait for His answer.

John 14:1 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” (NLT)

Dear Lord, life sometimes throws us a curve ball. Things will be going well and all of a sudden there is tragedy, there are problems or there are issues where we don’t know what to do. And because of these changes in our lives, we begin to doubt. We begin to worry. We begin to get angry. Help us to remember, however, to practice patience and give You our problems so You can give us peace. We know when we trust in You for the right outcome, we don’t have to doubt. Everything has a reason and whatever we are dealing with we know You are in control. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

When we are troubled, we need to trust God.

God is able to remove our doubt, our fear and our anger when we put our trust in Him.

When we trust in God and stop worrying about live, He will give us patience to wait for His answer.

When things in life aren’t going as we planned, we can trust in God for patience and know He has a plan.

We need to remember whatever we are suffering over right now is only temporary.

Romans 8:18 “Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” (NLT)

Focus: To have patience when we are suffering requires we focus on God rather than our problems. There is no problem too big for Him.

    Thanks for the note, Jane and telling me a bit about you. Good to meet you! I am not a pastor. I have been studying God's word and sharing what He puts on my heart for a few years now. Love writing and sharing. And have written some devotion books called Breadcrumbs. Alabama is beautiful as all of God's world is. Hope you have a great weekend! What is your Christian team on Spark? What part of Alabama did you live?

    I love your Blogs.. I am happy to have had the chance to read your first blog for the first time yesterday.. Are you a Pastor or just study a lot.. now I am trying to figure you out.. Patience's I learned not to Pray for them cause I get all kinds of Valleys and trial's.. I keep my focus on Him and What I need to do for Him today.. I love the verse Matthew 6 25-27 "For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? "Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? "And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?
    I am Happy to have found you and the Gospel rolled into one.. I was Praying You had wrote again.. I am just helping out here on the Alabama Team and that is where I found you.. Use to live there.. born and raised but only family there now.. I love the Mountains and I love to visit but have been gone too long.. Tried to reconnect with a few from schools but they made fun of me and I just thought I would forget the whole friend things the only person who cared passed away at the age of 15.. I was going to meet him and he was going to introduce me all over.. but they announced it over the speaker and that was te longest ride home.. I live in a Methodise Children's Home for awhile and then all over the place. I changed Schools seven times so I guess I didn't expect much.. God Bless and May you have a Wonderful Day.. It is Spring and we are in for a Wintry Mix... Let the Son Shine all day.. Don't think that would bother you.. I run a Christian Team myself but just helping out... In His Love and Grace Just Me emoticon emoticon
