Waiting On The Lord

There are  so many things I wonder and worry about, things I cannot change. Sometime I get so frustrated at God and feel so helpless. The truth is that the Lord has given us the power to overcome such situations. The Lord has power over everything that goes on in the world and He will surely make your path straight in no time. When i was younger ma problems was what to wear and if my mom would show early to pick me up. Cloth always came one way or the other and my mom would always show up to pick me up. Now that am older i feel like ma issues are a little more than that and i seem to have forgotten how to have faith. In church this Sunday the pastor talked about how our faith should be based on the Lord and his only spirit and not the report of the world. There comes a time in a person's life that one is down to nothing the report is just like the world would end surely enough the time always comes and passes. I remember when i was in MN, I was just so tired of everything around me. I would imagine myself in another life because I thought i couldn't have it any worst but the Lord came through for me. He lifted me out of MN and placed me in a better setting. Even when I got a scholarship to go to nursing skool and i lost it. How was i going to afford this tuition? it seems so impossible and even quiting nursing school was like a bad decision but the Lord still stood by me and got me another scholarship to pay my tuition. The same God that came to my aid is still able. The Lord strong and mighty is able. He is so so able, I just have to wait a little longer. Come to think about it God has been faithful even when i have been so very unfaithful. The bible says that  those who wait on the Lord shall renew there strength, The shall work and not be weary. For this I am going to wait on you Lord and let u direct me. I pray the Lord will give us all the grace to wait on HIM...

Psa. 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.

January 1 Lesson

So I rededicated my life to Christ yesterday and it was so awesome. I have been dying to do so but I just always wondered what people would say and who was looking. I finally got the courage to do it and to account for my daily walk with the Lord I started this blog. In the past I have done so in private and fallen back into my sinful nature, but this time around I want it to count for good. I pray that the Lord will draw me closer to himself (Amen). This blog is dedicated to my walk and new beginnings with the Lord.

Yesterday I read John 1 and 2

John 1: It talked about the beginning, It is amazing to know that even before the earth was created God was here. Just sit back and think of this one more time. Imagine the world with no sharp, no light, no dark, no form, no issues nothing but the Lord our God. I picture Him in white siting in an empty place. God is good.
Then the verse moved to talking about John the baptist. He was sent to the world to prepare the way for Jesus. He had a purpose in life and it was to prepare the way for our Lord Jesus Christ. What struck me the most when I finish reading this verse was the spirit of humility that John had towards Christ. "I baptize with water John replied, but among you stands one you do not know, He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie". I pray the Lord takes away every element of pride in me and replace it with a humble spirit.

John 2. It was Christ first miracle, He turn water to wine. I think this is super cool, Jesus is indeed a miracle worker. After meditating i thought of how easy it was for Him, and I remember how much easier it is  for Him to turn our sorrows into laughter.. I pray that the Lord will turn our deepest sorrows and problems into joy and blessings. It is time to go to bed so I say gudnite blog.
