Afraid of the Unknown

My son and I traveled for the first time last month without my husband. On my way there I came into congestion traffic that delayed me an hour. Consequently, I had to find an alternate route. All the while my legs began to shake and my hands started sweating. You see, traveling on a highway or driving in a new place always seems to make me feel uneasy. My son noticing ask, “Mom or you ok?” I assured him that I was ok. All the while the Lord kept reassuring me that I got this. Part of me was upset that my husband did not come. I knew if he was with me he would be driving and he knows how to travel on any road. Then God began to speak to me. He explained that it was all a set up. He did this so that I would learn to trust Him even in the unknown. He said that I’ve always trusted Him in familiar places, however it’s the unknown places that I struggle. He said when I have no control…. I panic. It blew my mind because it’s so true. (Lord help me!)

I’m in a place right now spiritually and physically now that I’ve never been before. It’s scary, but I know who is with me! I relinquish my control!! God I trust you when I can’t trace you! I know you will never leave my side. Thank you for your comfort and reassurance. Thank you for the unknown places… They create a pressure that helps me to trust you all the more!

Verse of Mediation: Deuteronomy 31:6 New International Version (NIV)Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsakeyou.”

Do you you meet the weight requirement?

My 10 year old son longs for the day he can ride in the front passenger seat. I explained to him that he must meet the weight requirement to safely ride in the front seat. Recently, I had to go to make a quick run to the store. Although though it’s only about 15 yards from my house, I decided to drive. Because my back seat and trunk was full of boxes, my son had to ride in the front seat. When he buckled his seat belt, he quickly noticed the light on the dash that lit up explaining that his airbag was off. He asked me why. I explained that it was off because he did not weigh enough. He then became concern and stated that the air bag may not protect him like it should. Of course I agreed and explained that as a matter of fact, if the airbag comes out, it can do more harm than good. Moreover, I thought about this from a spiritual point of view. So many times we think we are ready to be in a place or position, but not realizing that we are not mature enough to handle it. In other words, we don’t weigh enough “spiritually” to to handle it. I’m learning not to move too fast. It’s best to be still while God shape and mold me into his image and likeness. When we move ahead of God we can sometimes move away from his protection. Stay with him and be co-labors with Christ. Let’s get our weight up!

Verse of Meditation: Jeremiah 29:11(KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

The Wrong Turn

My job consists of me traveling to different counties every day. I have two routes that look similar and if I don’t pay attention it’s possible to take the wrong turn off the highway. Well to my surprise, that’s is exactly what happen this morning. Once I made the wrong turn, I was unable to turn around. The next exit was about 10 miles away, which would cause me to be almost 20 minutes behind schedule. Immediately, I became anxious and frustrated. Then a few minutes later I calmed myself down and prayed and gave thanks to God for allowing me to take the turn. I know he make all things work together for my good! Besides that, I know he protects me from seen and unseen dangers. When I finally pulled up at work it was 8am. Although I took the wrong turn, God still made sure I was ON TIME! Thank you Jesus!

In life we can start out on the right path but later find ourselves getting off course and taking the wrong turns. Sometimes it’s hard to turn around on your own. Therefore, we need the help of God. In my experiences, God has always met me right there in that place. His grace and mercy is sufficient. Call on him and repent and ask him to help you get back on track. Don’t worry about the time you have lost. Just seek God and trust him with all your heart. He is God…. He created time! He is able to collapsed time and have you exactly where you need to be and have you there ON TIME! Be encouraged!

Verse of Meditation:Lamentations 3:40 Let us examine and probe our ways, And let us return to the LORD.

Count It All Joy!

My husband and I have been praying for the past few years that God would heal him from seizures. So when he is attacked with one, the enemy tries to make us feel doubtful and defeated. He wants us to doubt who God is. But I know God to be a healer! I understand God’s timing. I know the will of the Father is for my husband to be healed; and he will be in the mighty name of Jesus! If we allow the enemy to distract us; we will start feeling weary and hopeless. But I read in James 1:2 to count it all JOY! That means the good, the bad, and the ugly! We found peace when we kept our eyes on the Lord and we know that all things work together for our good (Romans 8:28). Therefore, Saturday night when my husband had a seizure I responded differently. I went up in worship! I started thanking God for his goodness and his mercy!

Trust God and take him at his word! He is a God that can’t lie! I dare you to confuse the enemy with your praise and worship. He desires to sift you as wheat(Luke 22:31) …..BUT God! In Christ Jesus you have the victory!! 🙌🏾

Verse of Meditation: James 1:2-3 (KJV).   My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
