Learning to trust...

Today is Wednesday.. Half of the week is gone. I have not done much this week. I have been trying to take it each and take one day at a time. Sometimes we have to do that. Not try to plan for the future, because sometimes our plans for the future may not be the plans the the Lord has for us. I know that here lately I have realized how great our God is. So many times I have let him down, but he is always faithful. He has never failed me yet. I know that there have been many times that I have failed him, but he still calls me his child and loves me still.

This week I reflected on many things in my life. God has given me such a great family that loves and supports me. They only want the best for my life. Sometimes because they love me they let me learn from my own mistakes and are there when I finally find my direction. Today I was reading a devotion and it was talking about how even the little things in life can make a huge impact in your life. I think that is so true. Sometimes what we look at as not important, our Savior thinks that it is.

A question that was in my devotation today was this: " Is this decision going to make me clsoer to my goal, or further away from it?" I think that is something I am going to ask myself this week when I am faced with a decision in my life. I just wish I had read this devotation months ago. But everything happens for a reason, we just have to trust that the Lord is faithful and knows what is best in our life. He will never let us go...

A start of a new beginning

Sorry it has been a while since I have posted a blog. It has been a stressful month for me. I am doing better. I said this year I was going to try not to stress as much. Sometimes that means taking out things that cause stress. It may not be easy to do but in the long run I will be glad that I did. I have still not found an accounting job but I have had interviews. I know that I have just have to keep trusting my Savior. He sees the big picture and knows what is best for my life. I have learned in these past few weeks that being in God's will is very important. Here recently I have seen him work in a powerful way. Just yesterday the Lord showed himself to me. I have had a hard week, I had went to Olive Garden yesterday at lunch. I have not seen my first college roommate in a few months. Guess who my waitress was? Lauren my first college roommate. I feel like the Lord knew that I need to see her yesterday. I can tell other times that the Lord has shown how powerful he is. I know that life sometimes may be difficult, but I am going to keep my head held high because I know that everything works out for those who love the Lord. I will leave with one of my favorite verses..
" Do not be anxious about anything but in everything, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I found this poem and I want to share it with all my readers..

How can I use the New Year
To better serve my Lord?
I’ll read my Bible every day,
And be more in accord.

I’ll find new ways to serve others;
I’ll love my neighbor, too.
I’ll focus on "give" instead of "get"
In everything I do.

I’ll forgive the people I’m mad at;
Angry feelings I’ll discard;
I’ll try to love my enemies,
Even though it’s hard.

In the new year, I’ll lift people up,
Instead of putting them down.
I’ll fill my heart with love and joy,
And never wear a frown.

I’ll let go of my worries;
I’ll put it all in His hands;
I’ll repent and try to sin less,
And obey all His commands.

These new year’s resolutions
Are difficult, at best,
But there’s something I can do each day
That will put my soul at rest:

I’ll love my Lord with all my heart,
With all my mind and soul,
And if I do that essential thing,
All the rest will be in control.

By Joanna Fuchs

As this new year begins I want to trust my savior more. I worry all the time about little things that are out of my control. I have to remind myself daily that the Lord knows what is best in my life even when I don't understand.

This year I am going to help others and be there for those that need me.

A new year is here!

I know it has been a while since I have wrote. I have had a lot of things going on. I still am searching for a job. I have a job right now but I am just doing clerical work right now. Hopefully soon I will find a job in accounting. I have went on many interviews but I have to trust that the Lord has the right job out there for me.

As the new year begins I am going to start things the right way. I need to exerise more. I don't need to lose weight but my back bothers me a lot. Another resolution is to get a job in my field and maybe have a place of my own. I am blessed to be able to have a great family so that I can still live with my parents.

I enjoy bringing in a new year. It's a start of something new and to look back at where you have been. I had a difficult year this year and a happy year. I lost my grandfather which was very hard for me. I still have days that I miss him so much. He was very important person in my life. I see my grandfather in my dad. I think that helps me sometimes. My dad has always been there for me. One of my last new years resolutions is to live life to the fullest and to write more on my blog. Happy New Year!!
