God has been teaching or reminding me some things lately…Let me share.

  1. When life get’s busy – stop and take time for the necessities.  Don’t neglect prayer, God’s word, time with his people and your job in his kingdom. Take a little time for yourself, to help cope.
  2. When the trials get long, God’s arms are longer and can hold you close.
  3. Take advantage of the help and encouragement that God’s people are. Don’t hide away when the trials are piling on. Be with the saints, share your burdens, share what God has done.
  4. That God has a perfect plan for ME, personally, not just any person. This plan is for MY good. And he will work it out in the best way.
  5. He has promised perfect peace, when I keep my eyes on him. Isaiah 26
  6. Prayer works for little things as well as big things.
  7. That I need to be more bold vocally about my life with God. I can talk to people I know about him, other saints, I can write about it. But I need to gain the boldness to step out and share the Gospel to those around me. Living the life and being a testimony is great, but when the opportunity comes, I want to and need to be ready to give an answer. (I am praying for more boldness in this way)
  8. That when teaching children about God, one has to make sure to get on their level, with words they understand. Keeping the story true, but with embellishments to keep their interest and attention. That they don’t have to remember the whole thing, but to get the basics.
  9. That our spiritual life is a mirror of our physical life. If we are lazy physically we will tend to lazy spiritual. We need to stay fit and up to par in every area.
  10. Don’t get weary in well doing, in serving God, in being a good testimony, in the work of God, in your job, in your housework, in taking care of your body, in all things you do, they are all for God. And he blesses those that endure to the end.
  11. That I have enough faith to touch God, but I want more.
  12. My trust placed in God is not in vain. He keeps his promises.
  13. It’s ok to cry, God collects the tears.
  14. God provides for all needs and even some wants.
  15. God is.

I am thankful for each lesson and reminder. Life get’s busy sometimes and we can get our eyes off God. Let’s keep our focus on him, lay aside every weight that would hinder us from making heaven our home.

Hebrews 12:1-2  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

When the impossible happens, how do we react? Does it upset us? Are we completely taken back? Does it cause us to loose track, to become overcome with confusion, stress, or judgment? Does it cause us to doubt God, to question his power and plan? Does it cause us to leave God?

REMEMBER God is still God even when the unthinkable happens. He will still be there no matter the situation. If we loose our home, GOD IS STILL GOD. If our spouse is unfaithful, GOD IS STILL GOD. If our parents pass away, GOD IS STILL GOD. If our children disappoint us, or break our hearts, GOD IS STILL GOD. If we are diagnosed with a horrible disease, GOD IS STILL GOD. If we feel all alone, GOD IS STILL GOD. If there is no one we can turn to and trust, GOD IS STILL GOD. In every situation, he has promised to never leave us nor forsake us, Hebrews 13:5. He hears our cry and he knows what we are going through. Since GOD IS STILL GOD, there is someone we can turn too, someone that will help bear our burden, someone that desires to be our strength and will give grace and guidance through the worst that can happen.

As Nichole Johnson puts it in her sketch on the Proverbs 31 woman; God is still God even if it snows in Lebanon. Even if the most unlikely, random, impossible thing happens, GOD IS STILL GOD.

When life throws it worst at you, fill in the blank,

GOD IS STILL GOD even if…(it snows in Lebanon.)
