As I go through difficult times, I find that I truly need to rely on God. Otherwise, I feel like I will fall apart. I feel like this blog is a letter of encouragement, affirmation and instruction to myself. God has put it on my heart to write it, so if even one person finds something valuable in it, I hope that God will be pleased.
Let God’s will be done, not my own.
I am trying really hard to give control to God. No matter what I do and how hard I fight it, I cannot change the outcome of what is going to happen to my mom. She has stage 4 cancer.
God knows what is going to happen each day. When I go to God each day, God gives me what I need to get through the day. God fills me with the Holy Spirit to give me strength and peace.
God helps me not to do what I usually do. God will help me walk worthy of him. Instead of reacting how I usually do, I need to pray to God and resist the urge to follow my usual patterns. I need to let go of myself and trust in the almighty power that is bigger than anything that I could imagine. I want to walk worthy of God. I just cannot do it without God helping me, or maybe carrying me right now. We are being called into God’s kingdom of glory, but we need to leave ourselves behind and seek God.
God shows up completely on our lives, when we seek him.
God wants us to walk worthy of him. It matters how we live our lives. It doesn’t matter where you are right now, God will work on you and gently guide you. You are worthy of God. You are special. God will strongly encourage you. God will comfort you. God will fill you up with the Holy Spirit. God is our heavenly father.
as you know how we exhorted, and comforted, and charged every one of you, as a father does his own children, that you would walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.
–1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 (NKJV)
I have turned to him since my dad died of cancer on Christmas Eve 2014. Now, I completely turn to him again, as I see my mom fighting stage 4 cancer.
I thank God for the opportunity to become a better person and leave all my past ways behind. I thank God for giving me peace and comfort through this difficult time.
I pray that God blesses each of you who read this post today. I pray that God will fill your heart with peace and comfort through the Holy Spirit.
Have a great day!
