The past couple of days I have been out walking in this cold weather and loving every second of it! Yes, I am bundled up, and don't go too terribly far, but being outside is great "therapy" for me when I am down and depressed! This week I have tended to worry about the present and the future. I have not questioned God's love or His character, but in my confusion I have sought to know and understand His will. Walking out in His creation helps to clear my mind and invigorate my soul! I feel refreshed with a renewed strength and energy to "keep on keeping on" doing His will and trusting Him. I have also found a renewed peace of mind. He has changed my thoughts and given me with a heart of extreme gratitude for all of my many blessings. He has reminded me of what is truly important in this life. I also have a greater expectation and excitement for His imminent return! It is so easy for me to turn inward and obsess over problems and trials and think the worse case scenarios. I allow my mind to dwell on a sequence of events that could possibly happen, but most likely will not. These events tend to be the worse thing that could happen, rather than the best! I have so much growing to do in putting my total faith in God and allowing Him to guide my life daily. He has shown me very clearly that I have been allowing my circumstances and my emotions to dictate my thoughts rather than His Spirit and His Word. I truly love the Lord and am passionate about wanting to trust Him in all things. I am thankful He has once again shown His faithfulness to me by walking beside me and quietly leading me down the path I desperately want to be on . . . a life of daily trust and obedience to Him. "Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit, within me."
Learning to Trust God . . . When I am Feeling Down . . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
