The Lord will fight for you, you need only to BE STILL. Exodus 14:14
Anxious much? I am. I am frustrated. I am so frustrated with everything that goes on in my daily life. This verse means so much to me. It goes hand in hand with a lot of stuff I live by every day. For example..
- If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all. Just be quiet. Don’t be a bully. ( I am so guilty of this, we all are. Sometimes we just need a reminder.) Just pray about it. Like I’m so serious. Pray that the Lord helps you keep the strength to keep your mouth quiet. Let him fight the battle for you. Let his actions show through first.
- Always think before you speak. Once you said it, you can’t go back. You can only learn from it. Let him be your voice of reason. Prime example, WWJD. Ya’ll all know what that stands for.
- Everything happens for a reason. HOW MANY TIMES DO YA’LL HEAR THIS A DAY? I can’t even count how many times I’ve heard this in the last week! It’s true though. You have to be willing to see the bigger picture in the end. Something good will come of this, you just have to trust the Lord like Moses did in the book of Exodus.
Here I am being cliché, but if the year 2018 taught me anything, it was that sometimes you can’t control everything, being negative doesn’t help, and someone is always going to have the upper hand to some degree. You can’t change who you are to fit society, you need to learn to change for yourself. Last year, was great but it was awful at the same time. I enjoyed life, I enjoyed my husband, and my family. I could go on for days, probably weeks of all the stuff I was and still am grateful for.
Something bad happened last year, that has now taken a huge toll on my family. Something happened, and God is still testing my patience. He’s testing me so hard, I look like one of those bad fifth graders that literally get caught cheating on a big exam and he keeps slamming the ruler down on my hand telling me to stop cheating life and being negative. IT DOESN’T HELP, but then again Positive Patty over here is annoying also. You can’t win for nothing. You are who you are. God said it to Moses in Exodus 3:14. Your mistakes define you. You can only grow and learn from them. (Here I go being cliché again.)
I am frustrated, I am sad, I am angry, and I have so many different emotions and I don’t really know how I am suppose to feel right now. I am the back bone of a gigantic building right now, and I’m keeping everything in place and steady. That’s a rough job. God is literally screaming at me to be still. Let him take care of it. Can I trust it? Yeah. I can trust it. I’ve put faith in him all these years and I’ve always come out seeing the big picture. But this? Oh Lord, help me there had better be a freaking Mona Lisa painting at the end.
Key point, trust God. Let him be your fear. Fear is powerful if you let it be. Literally give him your frustrations. He is asking for it. He’s begging you for it. You talk to yourself everyday, (and you know you do, don’t deny it.) so why can’t you talk to him?
