God's Lessons

Hi bloggers! I am sorry I haven't posted in a while. God has really been trying to teach me a few things lately. His number one lesson has been trust. There are so many times in my life that I rely on my own power and I forget to hand things over to my infinite all-knowing God. He has been teaching me that only HE can take all of my petty little concerns and work them together for His good. Sometimes in an effort to please him, I forget to give him the two things he truly desires, my heart and my trust. I am thankful that we as his beloved children are never completely finished learing from his divine wisdom. Thank you Lord that you never fully stop refining the hearts of those who love you. When we doubt he doesn't chastise or blame. God, being the ever-faithful, loving Father he is, dusts us off and gives us another day to praise and honor him. The Spirit keeps reminding me that I only need to look to His strength to find peace, joy, hope, and light. Lord it is my prayer that I will daily look to your strength to find my confidence, joy, and peace. You are the giver of all good things. It is in YOU and you alone where I find life and sustenance. Blessed be your name, O Father. I love you.
