Hello my darling Becomers,
How have you been? How was your week? How are you fairing? If you have anything interesting to tell me about your lives; please do 😥😥I could really use some excitement!!! (Hands in the air;jumping up and down). My week was fine and God is continuing to do great things in my life. (Thankful smile). He is opening doors for me and making sure that I walk through those doors. He has brought peace and joy into my heart even with so much around me. Isn’t a wonderful God? He is such a good father. (Nodding with a proud and thank smile)
I wouldn’t exactly say that my situation is solved and that everything is fine but I have learnt to rest my trust in God and He will not disappoint (nodding with an assuring smile). My sweet darlings, I recently discovered how sometimes we undermine God’s power in our lives. There are those areas in our lives that we think that God is beyond. We think that there is no way that God would help in that situation or we don’t even remember God when that situation comes. May be because our faith is too little or because we just enjoying being mediocre or we just forget how strong our God is . Isn’t it sad how unintentional we sometimes are with God? (Shaking head with dissappointment)
There are areas of my life I never used to pray about because I didn’t think God would want to be involved in such mundane aspects of my life. There are just things I didn’t think that God could control. I mean I knew God was powerful and all but there are certain things I just felt that it was okay for them to go bad or like it was my responsibility for me to fix. I forgot that I was serving the most high God; the omniscient one, the omnipotent one and omnipresent one. Can you believe that I chose to try and fix such situations? (Laughing at my dillusional mind) Can you imagine that my small mind lead me into thinking like this?
One of the areas I didn’t give God control was my finances. I never really saw the need to pray that God provides money for me may be because money is really ‘demonized’ or because I felt that it was my responsibility to provide. (Hands on the head) Can you imagine me taking the provider role in my life like I even belonged to myself? Can you imagine me even failing to pay to my tithe just because I feel the money is not enough like I gave it to myself? Oooh my sweet darlings I was really going to perish because of my lack of knowledge.
Another area I never involved God was in my relationships with people in general and even the romantic ones. (Laughing at my stupidity) I actually thought that in my small mind that I could separate my relationship with God from my relationship with people. Can you imagine that my sweet darlings? Is that even possible? I actually felt like it was my responsibility to own this baggage and deal with situations without involving God and my sweet darlings; that’s how I sold my soul trying to keep all these relationships together.I would even take up the role of a ‘fixer’; I would see someone broken and my first instinct was fix!! I loved to fix everything broken; friendships and relationships, I gave all of myself to these situations to the point that I had sold my soul so many times that people no longer wanted to buy and I was starting to feel like they owed me something because I had given up so much for things to work out. I started to demand reciprocation and compensation and may be I got it; it was never enough. I just feel that I deserved more and so I kept asking and asking until they couldn’t take it anymore and we let it be broken like it was broken before.(sadly)
I have to say that God is great, my darlings, He came at that time when all the pieces were broken and showed my mistake; I had taken God’s responsibility upon my shoulders and gone on to expect that others take upon the same responsibility. I should have prayed to God to fix the situations. I should have fixed my eyes upon God and not turn myself into a fixer for God is the sole fixer and He efffects permanent change.(nodding with realization)
May be there’s a situation in your finances, your relationships, your marriage, your mind, your academic, in any part of your life that you feel the need to fix or to deal with, that you feel it’s your responsibility. May be you need to surrender it to God, that He will guide you and fix it for you in the best way possible permanently. Just trust in Him and He won’t disappoint you.
Cypress trees will grow where now there are briars; Myrtle trees will come up in place of thorns. This will be a sign that will last forever a reminder of what I, the Lord, have done.
Have a blessed week and I love you!!!!
With love and flowers, ( hands stretched out)
