This is easier said than done.
When we love people, we want to “fix” things for them. We want them happy, healthy and whole at all times. But, God is at work in their lives and has plans we can never understand in our finite existence. His ways are so much higher than ours and we must trust that His plan for them is light-years better than our hopes for them. So, we cast our cares, our worries and our doubts on the Lord knowing He has everything under control regardless of how things appear. We surrender confident in the fact that He is working behind the scenes to bring victory for those who trust in His name.
Again, easier said than done.
It is not always a “one and done” situation. Like forgiveness, surrendering our troubles can be a process. Want to know why? I’ll tell you, because in the process of our surrender, we have a nasty habit of re-claiming situations and carrying the load yet again. Then we have to cast them all over again.
So, I resolve right now to trust God with the people I love and care about. I trust Him to restore all that the enemy has stolen from them. I trust Him to deliver them from all their troubles and heal them of all their diseases. I trust Him to bring comfort by way of the Holy Spirit for those who are grieving and resources for those who are in need. I trust Him to give me the strength to change my “little” attitude and replace my anger with joy and my worry with peace.
GodsyGirl, resolve with me this very moment to trade your heavy burdens for His light ones. Amen? So be it!

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
This will not be a long blog post. Pretty can change your life in less than 60 seconds.
The key to Godly the maturity, Godly peace , and intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ is hidden in your time set apart, and interrupted with Him.
I've tried it both ways, and this is the only key to knowing His will for your life and to knowing His peace and fellowship. No two ways about it. I don't care what anybody says on the subject. It is what it is.
So, today find time for just you and Jesus. I am NOT talking about time you squeeze in for Him while you're driving, working, exercising, or any other multi-tasking. You need to find "alone" time, "still" time with just Him.
Rise early or stay up late, Godsygirl. But, whatever you ... get alone with Him everyday.

I thanked God for waking up in my home. It's a beautiful home, I thanked God for my husband who is an amazing provider and loving companion. His love for me is unquestionable and still leaves me breathless.
My cup runneth over when it comes to my children. I am so blessed with wonderful children who love The Lord and serve my husband and I with respect.
My car runs and gets me to where I want to go. My job grants me opportunities to meet fantastic people and the occasional giggle I need to make it through this life.
My "mommy" is a pillar of strength and wisdom. My dearest friend in whom I enjoy sharing life's joys and mysteries. I love our conversations and thank Jesus for her wisdom in God and His ways.
I have absolutely the best friends ever. They have loved me through the test of time (and even patience) :). Believe me, I've tried their patience.
My body functions and gets me where I need to go. That's a priceless blessing.
Most of all, I thank God from Whom all blessing flow. His loving kindness is from everlasting to everlasting. He opens doors and supplies me the wisdom to walk through them. He restores all that the cankerworm destroyed and renews my soul. He gives me strength for the battle and encompasses me with the Light of Jesus.
Be grateful, Godsy Girl. You are blessed. Somewhere up in this world is someone who would pay money to switch places with you.

There is room at the cross for you.
There is grace for you.
There is hope in Christ for you.
There is a balm in Gilead and healing for you.
There is forgiveness for you.
There is a life with an expected and end...and it's a good one ...for you.
To answer your question, yes, there is more to life than what you're living.
Trust Jesus, turn your heart to Him. Open your heart to Him and watch Him do wonderous works through you...in you ... and for you.
By Godsygirl...for you.

In a recent post, I shared the difficulty and the intensity of my current life season. I did not go into details, but simply said it was a dark season. Well. I want you to know that God has answered prayer in a way that only He can. He has perplexed the wise men of this world and allowed me to hear one of the most beautiful words in the English language - benign.
During the last year or so, God has been teaching me to trust His plan. Sure, He said I can make my request known to Him and I did. However, I have finally internalized the truth that my request can never trump His will and His plan.
In so learning, God blessed me with a good report. But, as the Hebrew boys taught us "but...if He had not" performed what we asks....we must accept, trust and surrender to His plan. Forever convinced that God has a better plan hidden inside every "no". Now, that's spiritual maturity.
So, what if God allowed that marriage to end, or that child to die or that job to let you go? Stand firm in the fact that God is still in control and He is causing everything to work out for your good. Stand firm knowing no devil in hell and thwart the plans of God. Plant your spiritual feet in the ground sure that God will never leave your nor forsake you. Stand straight -in faith- unwaveringly sure that He is up to something good in your life!
God's purpose has been hidden inside every struggle, every tear and even every painful journey. The sovereign God of the universe sets high and brings low. His will is always King. So, whatever happens...we trust Him. Praise Him and worship Him regardless of how we feel...what we hope for or whatever the outcome. It's all about Him anyway, right?
Blessings to you, Godsy Girl. Remember, God still does answer prayers for you and your family!
