“Indeed, every good and perfect thing that has ever come into our lives has come as a gift to us from God Himself. It did not bubble up like crude oil from this earth. It flowed down like rain from the riverbanks of Heaven. It was intentional. It was personal. Yet we see ourselves at the mercy of random events, abilities, and coincidences.”-Beth Moore
It is way too easy to lose focus. Wars around the world, the news with so many things to tear your security away from you. Health issues. Yet, we have this…
Our Almighty God, King of kings, Supreme and Sovereign yet Loving and Compassionate. Creator of the universe, including us. Every thing strategically placed in His plan, blessings and cursings. He doesn’t need us, He wants us. He sings over us and keeps watch while we sleep, everything to bring us closer to Him. His glory will shine, with or without us, but what an honor to shine His glory. He has done everything to give us a way to be with Him.
The last six months have been difficult with my health. Changing medicine, trying to understand what is going on with my body, trying not to be angry and bitter. This week, while surrending to “this must be what you have for me”, He showed me something miraculous! My doctors did not share with me the danger of being removed from one medication to another. My Pharmacist put something in my bag, that was just the dangers of leaving that medication, honestly I felt most of those side effects that should have been treated. In my ignorance of all of this, I just rode it out. Some nights I just prayed to sustain me. I am past the six months of danger, still weak, still having issues with the heat and humidity. This will take a year, but I have not used anything other than my allergy-asthma medication.
I felt the hug from Him, the reassurance that He has been giving me everything I need to live, the love of a Father (who truly can fix anything).
This is personal, He can do anything, He acts on our behalf without asking for the things we need, He already knows and is already doing it.
He is still in control, nothing that is going on in the world or our communities is shocking Him. Focus on Him, and the greatest gift of all, His never ending love. Loving us so much as to make that bridge (Jesus) so we would not be apart from Him. Beautiful.

God has a plan, and we just need to surrender to it. God is still God, and His plan is still in motion, with or without our surrender. I think at times we forget this. We are the created, and He is the Creator. Everything moves along His timeline. So many things happen that we just don’t understand. Maybe we are not supposed too.
God asks us to rest in Him, to accept the gifts He has already given to us.

If we (I) truly believed God, these things would flow out and saturate those around us…24/7
This year, I want to believe God more than ever before….
