Did you know as a believer you are either going in to a storm, going through a storm, or coming out of one? At this time and for a while now I have been in a big storm. I can only tell you as I go through this storm my faith is growing bigger and bigger. I am not enjoying the storm that I am going through however, I do know I cannot wait to see how the lord will bring me out of it. Also, I cannot wait to tell my testimony on how MY GOD worked IT OUT FOR HIS GLORIY.
Believe me he is in control of it all. he will open and close the doors when he is ready. No man can open a door that he closed or close a door he opened. Just know when you are in a storm. You need to bring all of it to him. In prayer. He knows what is really going on behind the scenes. Just know he will not fail you. He wil not leave or for sake you. He will bring you through it better off then you were before. All you need is faith as small as a mustard seed. He will move mountains for his children. Just hold on to his word, for his words do not lie. It does not matter what the world says believe me he has you. my storm is big but, are god is bigger. Carry your cross and be proud for he is there to fight for you. let him be the glory in good times and in a storm.
Here is where it is in his word.
Romans 8:28, 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:6-7, Matthew 17:20, Nahum 1: 7, Isaiah 25:4-5, Exodus 15:2
Now, let me tell you a little about my storm.
I moved to Texas 7 years ago. I have a disability that is getting worse over time. Honestly if I would have known it was going to get worse I would not have come to Texas. But, God knew. Currently in the last 4 years my vision has turned from low vision to almost totally blind. I now can not see even 2 feet in front of me. This has caused me to not be able to go outside as much an go for a walk, run, or even go to the gym. Light hurts my eyes. The brighter it is the harder it is to see. My sight is always changing with the weather. My sight is never the same at any point in time. I have trouble going to the store and getting the items I need. Always needing help. My work life was getting harder to do because of my sight. It was also a toxic and abusive work place. I could not take that type of work place anymore so, I did pray for months for god to change it for me. As that did not happen. One morning I prayed OK God, it is getting harder for me. Show me what you want me to do. Knowing I may have to quit. Low and behold, I did that day. He shut the door for that job. My doctors are even questioning because my job gave me such stress. That just maybe my sight loss could have been triggered to go faster. I now may be in a $73,000.00 debt. I am sure that I may be even suffering with some type of depression. I tried to get another job so, I would not have been without one. No luck there. Finding work while going blind is a challenge as well. Friends are hard to come by as well. When you cannot see people just do not want to be bothered with you. Because, I do not get out much anymore. I am gaining weight. It is hard to be going through this storm. However, god has a plan for why and he will make it right.
Now, as the last 2 weeks blog showed. We are a child of the most high god and standing in the palm of his hand.
Yes! And because of those two truths. My GOD HAS THIS STORM!!!!
So, let’s take this to the lord and watch him work!
DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,
Thank you for letting me neil down by your feet. With my readers I come boldly to you knowing. This storm is a big one but you are BIGGER then all. Please help all of us that are going through a storm. We know we are your children and are standing in your palm. Therefore protect us while you work it out for your glory to show in us. As you know your word has power and is what is truthful so as a result of the power in your words. I say back to you Romans 8:28, and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.1 Peter 5:7, Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Philippians 4:6-7, do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Matthew 17:20, He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you. Nahum 1:7, The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him Exodus 15:2, “The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. Isaiah 25:4-5, For You have been a strong-place for those who could not help themselves and for those in need because of much trouble. You have been a safe place from the storm and a shadow from the heat. For the breath of the one who shows no pity is like a storm against a wall. Like heat in a dry place, you quiet the noise of the strangers. Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the one who shows no pity is made quiet. YES father with all of that Please let the Heavens rain down your words in my storm of life. Let me be alight for you to shine in no matter what the world may bring our way. YOU GOT THIS!
I love you and thank you!
Now, in Jesus name we pray AMEN!
Feel free to comment and if you want me to pray for something you are going through. Please, let me know and I will bring it to him.
