He has not brought me this far to leave me!

I went to church today and I could not believe that the month is practically over and we are yet to usher June into our lives. I have been praying and waiting for God to answer my humble prayers to no avail. I wonder, how long can I push? How long can I hang on?  Our Father states, ” No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

It is sad to think that I have lost all hope in man, in jobs, and possibly in myself too. I however have faith and hope in God, for what I would classify as a miracle.  Merriam Webster defines Miracle as, “an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment” Yes, it is an extremely unusual thing to find a great job, if at all any job, in a harsh economy.

One of my favorite songs inn high school states, ” I do not believe he has brought me this far to leave me.” I do believe this, for if God were to bring me this far and leave me, it would be absurd, it would conflict his teachings, it would conflict my whole well  being: my very existence.

I leave you with the very words of that song that I remember in high school. It is by Mary Mary:

There will be mountains that I will have to climb
And there will be battles that I will have to fight
But victory all defeat, it’s up to me to decide
But how can I expect to win If I never try.

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me

Never said there wouldn’t be trials
Never said I would’t fall
ever said that everything would go
the way I want it to go
But when my back is against the wall
And i feel all hope is gone,
I’ll just lift my head up to the sky
And say help me to be strong

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me

Hook:
No you didn’t bring me out here to leave me lonely
Even when I can’t see clearly
I know that you are with me(so I can’t)

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe he brought
me this far to leave me

Dear Lord Jesus,

I pray that you will walk  through this week with me, extremely closely. I claim a miracle, I claim victory

AMEN

What time is it?

God invented time, therefore time is not ours. So if you ask me what time it is, I will say “God time” God time can be sweet when you achieve success and it can be bitter when your faith is tested. He has a plan for everything and a time for every plan. How I wish the time was not now, but I know He knows the time is right.

Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

I can categorize my time under verse 3, “a time to tear down and a time to build.” I feel as if God has torn me down and He intends to rebuild me, and heal. BUT WHEN? I ask.

Give me grace and favor Lord, through this time. Hasten it if you will.

As Jabez prayed, I pray, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. (1 Chronicles 4:10)

Amen

positivity

I have managed to remain optimistic for the past 8 months, in the midst of heartache and sorrow. It is amazing that a small amount of negativity can topple my hard earned victories. I have worked so hard to follow the rules in the midst of animosity, I have struggled to walk the path with an untainted heart. All this has fallen flat and I am back to square one.
I decided to go to church and the priest gave an calming speak with regards to John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I have decided to let the whispering wind whisper…the swaying trees sway. I have however to embrace the divine words of God, to give me success. His peace is indeed with me.

Dear Lord Jesus,
You know why I am inflicted with trials. I am tempted to abandon all hope. But Tis’ you who has the world in His hands. Elevate me to great heights. And let them stare in awe, for thy works are great.
Amen!
