TROUBLES, TRUE, TRUST

***I wrote this five years ago.  Interestingly it is the basis scripture of my book series now, and His word is always timely. Our Abba Father is like that…***

 

 

Everyone has them…no one is exempt.

Jesus told us that we would have them.  Whether it is a health issue, financial troubles, family problems, school issues…trouble surrounds us in one form or another. I don’t believe that any one problem is anymore worth of His attention than another.  They ALL warrant His love and attention.  What might seem trivial and unimportant to me, might not to someone else….and I truly believe that because He loves us, He cares about our troubles.

The difference comes in how we handle these troubles.  THAT is it!  It is not about how WE handle them…but do we surrender them and turn them over to the Father?  Do we rest in HIM, even though the trouble seems to remain?

Interestingly enough, as I was looking in the back of my Bible in the Concordance…these were the alphabetical listings surrounding the topic “trouble”.

Trials, Tribulation, Triumphal, Triumphant, Trouble, True, Trust…hmmmm.  How cool is that?  We will have those trials, tribulations and troubles.  But it is true that we can be triumphant, as He is true and we can trust Him!  Isn’t it wonderful how all those words together can bring us peace..IN HIM!

Trust me when I say that emotions are real…and we will deal with them.  I believe the Father gave us these emotions to deal with our troubles…but HE wants to carry them for us.  We just have to let go and let HIM.

Oh how I need to be reminded of this today!

Father, Why Do I Feel This Way?

I wrote this in my journal one day over four years ago….
“Lord, I have felt such anxiety, such depression. I knew you were there but I couldn’t touch you. You were reaching out to me…but it was like I was wandering in a desert. I was so thirsty, but I could not drink. The water was right there. I then began to be consumed with guilt and condemnation about how I had failed as a believer, and that was not from you. I was so consumed that I couldn’t even reach my hand up high enough to touch your lips for even a taste of water. And yet, you never left me. You stayed and reached down and pulled me up…little by little. But I had to be able to see you, to know that you were not a mirage. My reality had to become clearer…..and the increase in medication allowed me to see you again. You never left, but my perception, my vision did. I cannot put into words the pain I felt, I don’t understand it. Some say it was a spiritual attack, and I do know that there are battles…but it was more than that…Now my life circumstances have changed and I can see you again. You are no longer a mirage. You are my reality, my constant companion. I am “me” again…the “me” you designed me to be.

The fog slithers up behind you and engulfs you before you realize it…..

……..Depression and Anxiety….. Continue reading

DELETE, DELETE, DELETE.  I was checking email and if I was done reading, or simply did not want to read the email…I hit that precious little button.  Sometimes I could do it in the group setting…check, delete.  Such power. And I will admit I always have tons of emails. Continue reading
