As I get the priorities in my life corrected and in order I have also been making some small private goals. I have been working on my health and making sure that I pick up healthy habits. More water and less sugary drinks, more exercise and less sitting around, more reading and less tv
I have also been working on my spiritual life. With out going into a lot of detail. I am a huge worrier
as I have said in many other posts and lately my trust level has been down. I know that God is in control and that his ways are perfect, but sometimes at night in the dark, very quiet times my mind takes over and the worry enters in. The worry over how are we going to take care of this or that, when will the phone calls or mail with the answers come…….. I have been doing better about praying through these and quoting the scriptures that I have been taught in my prayers. Each day the worry gets less and less.
I love to read in my leisure time and I have been asking God to lead me to books that can help me to grow spiritually. This week I have been reading a book and the scripture the author keeps bringing up when the characters are in a similar place as I have described is
Psalm 18:30-32 (New International Version)
30 As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in him.
31 For who is God besides the LORD ?
And who is the Rock except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
when the worry takes over the best thing to do is to pray the scriptures, to trust the Lord and to WAIT on him. This is hard, but when you let go and let God do the work the answers that come are so correct and so right. It is rewarding to see that God loves us and is the one that takes care of us. HIS ways are PERFECT!
So right now I wait and pray. I know the Lord is in control. He sees our needs and wants before we do and He is working on it, even if we cannot see the answers or the work being done on our behalf.
