Trust and Blessings

I have been neglecting this blog for the past few months.   I guess in a way I needed to take a break of some sort.   WalkingWithJesus_thumb

Yesterday I felt I needed to reconnect with it.

Why?

To simply share my thoughts on trust.

TRUST.

I am learning to trust the Lord more and more lately with many aspects of my life.

My mom for example.   Not an easy relationship for various reasons that I won’t explain here.   But all I need to say is that no matter what I love her.    She’s my mom after all.  

My family.  Well I can’t go into details here but the last few months has been a whirlwind of emotions/events.   It’s not finished yet.   Slowly we see a light in the tunnel and it feels good.   For a while we had no clue what God was doing but I think we start to see a plan.

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD.”

This Scripture is following me a lot lately.

My upcoming trip. For the first time in my life, I will board a plane alone to attend a training week with one of the most wonderful healing ministry that I know – Living Waters.  I’m a bit anxious about it though I know the Bible tells me not to be anxious about anything…   It’s a first… hopefully not the last time I have the opportunity of travelling alone by plane.

On a bright note – I recently received a confirmation that I could review a Brother sewing machine.   It has been years – not to mentioned decades – since I touched one.   I’m excited about it and find a tons of fun projects to do with sewing and quilting.   My maternal grand-mother made a ton of quilts when I was younger.   I would love to follow in her footsteps.

Also – don’t tell my kids but next week on our anniversary, we will attend a show at Medieval Times in Toronto.  They don’t know about it.  The boys think that only Jasmine and I will be going since they went alone with dad about two years ago.   I was able to get FREE entry for everyone in the family in exchange of a blog post.    To top it off, we are attending one that also includes a presentation in history.   I look forward to this.

This week, I was looking at a faucet located behind our trailer (you see we have come with my husband as he works on a contract near Whitchurch-Stouffville).    And the faucet was dripping…   and it got me thinking about the blessings God give us.   You see sometimes it feels like waves upon waves of blessings showering over our heads.  Other times it is dripping like the faucet.  Still God is with us at all times – no matter what.   And He provides in ways we don’t expect too!

Here’s the pics I took…

How blessed are you lately?   Do you feel like it is scarce and dripping or do you feel overwhelmed by God’s goodness?   Either way always remember God is always there even when you don’t sense Him.

Trust me.   I know.  I experienced it.   Life goes through seasons – spring, summer, autumn and winter.    We have ups and downs.   We feel great or totally discouraged.   But He provides in various ways.  We just need to take the time to see it.   The best way to do so is to spend time in your Bible.   It’s amazing how Scriptures can speak to you when you least expect it.

Have you cracked your Bible open today?  What did God shared with you?
