Journal Entry# 18: Pray I will run to You...

Image
Abba, You have prefect knowledge of men. You know me better than anyone. You know my thoughts, struggles, secrets, hurts and fears. You know it all. Nothing is hidden from You. I pray that with this knowledge, that I will run to You. I will run to You when things are good and when things are bad. You are amazing God.  11/8/2010

Our God is all knowing. During the year of 2010, I was struggling with a lot and I would try to keep things to myself. I was struggling with my identify and had fears about the future. But I take comfort in knowing that I do not need to keep things I am struggling with to myself. It is so important that we as Christians, run to Him about everything. God knows it anyway. We all need to trust in Him. He does care about the things that concerns us. 


Scriptures: 
 Psalm 62:8  Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
     Psalm 139:1-4 O Lord, you have examined my heart     and know everything about me. You know when I sit do…

Journal Entry # 17: Okay Lord, What is Next?

Image
Abba, I ask myself what is next for me? Today at church I am reminded that I need to trust in You. I do not need to know every detail of my future; the why, when, how, or what, I just need to trust You, but I am struggling. I am getting closer to graduating. A lot has happened this semester that did not go the way I expected. I ask that You encourage me about the future. Abba direct my steps as You may. Help me to live in the now and to let tomorrow worry about itself. You will carry me through this life.

I am a control freak. I want to know everything that will happen before it happens. For some reason, I do not like to be surprised. I am learning to take one day at a time. It is God who will direct my steps.  I rest knowing that I do not need to know everything. This is a journey. I take comfort in knowing that before I was born, God knew everything. He is involved in every detail of my life. This morning I was encouraged by Psalms 32:8 "The Lord says, I will guide yo…

Journal Entry #16 Why Do I Doubt You Lord?

Why is it that after seeing all we know to be true about You, we still doubt? Abba, please forgive me because I have seen your faithfulness time after time and still doubt you. Please help me to take you at your word. I have no reason to doubt You.

Time after time I have seen God's faithfulness in my life. His Word is true. He is not a man that he should lie. I can not compare man to God. He will never be distrusting the way people have shown themselves to be in my life. I am amazed that, at the right time he always showed Himself faithful and trusting. Through my job search, apartment search, being in school and even my finances, my God is faithful. I know I can depend on Him. 


Question:
Why do you think that you might doubt God?
What do you do to remind yourself of God's faithfulness?
