Awe...it feels good to be back to blogging a little. Not sure how much blogging I will do but hopefully I can at least keep up with my Wednesday in the Word! I do love it.
I do want to send out a great big THANK YOU for those of you that have expressed to me in such a personal way that I was missed! You will never know what that has meant to me! THANK YOU!
I was working on my Bible study for this week and wouldn't you know it? It is basically on Trusting God. We are so quick to say to ourselves and to others that YES we do trust God but I am afraid that if we were to be truthful that most of us are by "Totally Trusting" God like we are a smorgasbord at a restaurant. We like to pick and choose what we really Trust Him with. The real issue of the matter is that we want to control!
Control is the secret adultress to good intent! Think about it! We really have good intentions but just like a robber hiding in a dark closet, control ambushes us. It gags us, and then surveys what it can take take from our lives without us noticing we've been robbed! If we did not try and control God we would trust Him.
Let me see if I can hit a few key notes with anyone beside ME!
Yes Lord I trust you with my finances...But I can't give up spending more than I make therefore I have more debt than I can pay.
Yes Lord I trust you with my grown children...But they need for me to make decisions for them because I know what is best!
Yes Lord I trust you with time management....But I do have 2 showers, 3 church meetings and usually at least one birthday party to attend every other week it seems.
Yes Lord I trust you with my health...But I continue to put things in my mouth in excess.
Yes Lord I trust you with my husband's salvation....But I must nag him 24-7 or he will never see you as I do!
Our YES LORD I TRUST YOU for list could be rather long couldn't it?
Are we trusting or controlling?
Pray with me that we will trust our Lord with everything in our life and not try to control but allow Christ to work in our life for His Glory and our Good.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
