Sing Praise to the Lord

It has been way too long since I last blogged.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about trials, storms, desert and just feeling alone.

My latest Facebook post was about who are we to questions the trials we come face to face with. I am reminded of the Apostle Paul when he was imprisoned the first time because he freed the slave girl Lydia of her demons. What did Paul and Silas do? They would sing Praises to the Lord.

Doing this is easier said than done. I am human after all. When faced with difficult situations I need to remember; don’t become emotional. Listen intently, find the lesson or opportunity I need to learn and always, give the praise and glory to the Lord because he has a message for me. By allowing these things to happen we are putting faith and trust in the Lord. We allow him to help us through any situation we may be faced with. I believe the Lord will carry me through the valley. He is going to find the way for us.

He knows of all our needs. This is why we need to learn and have more trust and faith in the Lord. Sure, we are going to fall but it is an opportunity to grow.

Phillipians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Rely on him and remember give ALL THINGS to the Lord good and bad. Seek out the glorious gifts of life lessons the Lord has in store for each of us.

Who am I? This is the question which goes through my mind. I sit quietly and ponder this question a lot. I don’t want to be defined by what the world say I am. I want to be defined as a child of God’s. I want to be known for being utilized to help others to over come the difficulties faced in life which are made more bearable with a relationship with Christ. By personal experiences and share those experiences show the road traveled is not one of ease however by the end there is restoration, redemption and a sense of peace. I am a mother of 3 grown children, they are all adults who have paved their own way in life. I enjoy the time with my grandchildren and I am always inspired by watching them live their life through their little eyes. Despite the difficulties I faced in life God has shown me the plan of good He has planned for me and my children. It was a plan of restoration and redemption. Amazing! Praise & Glory to the Lord!
