“For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion for whom no one cares’.” Jeremiah 30:17
I have been searching for God’s purpose for me. Of course, it is how I want God to use me, not how He wants me to be used. I know I have a heart for suffering people to be restored. I have searched for this type of restoration in my life.
Fear and Doubt
Courage is something I have lacked most of my life. Fear and doubt have been my constant companions. Fear of failure, doubting my abilities, lead to paralyzing anxiety. I know this is not how my life was meant to be lived. I believe in God. I believe the Lord as my personal Savior and He loves me. Yet these truths never connected in my mind, heart and soul, when things got rough.
My circumstances would draw me down into the mire of despair. I felt like a fraud calling myself a believer in Christ. Yet, each and every time, when I felt I could not go on any further, I would recall, Matthew 6:33, “But seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.” So, I prayed, read The Bible and sought counsel. Those three things brought me out of worry’s demise and gave me faith to be courageous again.
Ask the Lord how to be courageous. This could be being silent and letting the Lord speak. Other times it is to ask the help of others, reach out. God does not want us to do this alone. He is with us and He will partner us with the best people. Remember the enemy, is the author of isolation and confusion. Fight for the life God has written for you! That is why this blog was started. I am not or claim to be an expert in anything, I know I want to encourage and give inspiration in people’s lives, learn lessons together, so we can build His Kingdom together.
“Heavenly Father, you created me, so help me trust every detail of my life to you. Worry is deceptive and robs me of your promises. Remind me of your promises of how much you love and want your best for me. May your peace carry me through whatever I face., In Jesus’ mighty name. AMEN!”
