Since my last post, it hasn’t been boring. I have made a trip home to Kentucky to visit with family and witness my nephew become a legal member of our family. That was a truly awesome day for my sister, and as tears strolled down our faces, she whispered to me “ I’m finally a mom”. Thrilled and ecstatic don’t do justice to her feelings that day.
Although I made the trip alone, hubby had to stay home, it was some fun time with my mom and dad. Spent alot of time eating out, watching some movies, and running to antique shops. A very favorite past time for me and my mom.
But since getting back home, some areas of my life I have been fretting over. I hate to even mention it because I sound like a broken record. But selling this house is taking a huge toll on me and making me question my trust in God. Is he listening to me? Did I actually say that?
Why is it so hard to trust God when things look so bleak. I really don’t distrust God, I really do trust him, but I keep asking myself why certain things aren’t happening for us and everything is working out for all those around us. Is selling this home some kind of lesson?….what am I suppose to be learning from it? PATIENCE…..oh boy, I am not good with this trait. I am finding myself getting disgruntle over the smallest of things. I am getting anxious about everything. All my feelings are so raw and I could cry at drop of a hat. I just want to move on…..I want to start the next chapter in my life. But apparently I have unfinished business in this chapter.
So I am back to “trusting God” that he knows what’s best….I read “
“Trusting God actually takes effort. Trusting God actually takes work. It
takes reading the Bible. It takes meditating on Scripture. It takes praying
about things. It takes taking our own souls to task and stopping one kind of
thinking and turning to another kind of thinking. It takes work. It takes
this excerpt was taken from “Trusting God” by Carolyn Mahaney, Carolyn goes on to say “
The Bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb.
11:6). Fear is sin. And as my husband has often graciously reminded
me—God is not sympathetic to my unbelief. Why? Because fear,
worry, and unbelief say to God that we don’t really believe He is
“merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast
love and faithfulness” (Ps. 86:15). We are calling God a liar.”
Ok, WOW I never really thought about that before. How God views my lack of faith and trust.
If you are lacking in faith and having a hard time Trusting God” check out the whole article written by Carolyn Mahaney.
In saying all that, I have much to be grateful and thankful for:
- My nephew,Caleb
- Wonderful time spent with my hubby this last week, we have had a incredible time with some awesome discussions.
- The wonderful rain we received this week to make our flowers and gardens happy.
- Great friends to share a meal with.
- My DIL receiving her AA .
- Another great sunny day and seeing the flowers sprinkle the earth with color. God is a awesome artist.
- Home movies of my children taken 26 years ago. I can relive their youth.
- And I am thankful for this house too, at least I have a nice home and I can make the payments because we have work. So even when I am disgruntled with having it, I am grateful that I do, because many don’t. God has been so good to me.
- Thankful for my wonderful hubby. (pic below was taken at our rehearsal for our wedding)
