Have you made mistakes? Have you messed up your life? Do you feel like it’s just no use trying any more? Is your life what you want it to be?
Proverbs 13:12 states, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”
I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I’ve messed up my life. I’ve felt like quitting. My life is still not what I want it to be. My heart has been sick from deferred hope. What about you?
One thing I’m learning through the trials my family is walking through is that God’s ways are higher than my ways; His thoughts are higher than my thoughts. It is His responsibility to take care of me and my family. It is my responsibility to trust in Him to bring about His perfect will in my life. My responsibility continues in that I have to seek His wisdom and choose to align myself with His perfect will. I have to have faith that He will continue to work in our life.
I do not want to harden my heart toward God or His will for my life. I want to be soft hearted so that I can hear the Holy Spirit whispering to my soul. I have to be willing to give up my way, my ideas of what I want. I have to submit myself completely to the Father. Lord may it be done unto me as You have said.
Let’s give up. Let’s surrender to the Lord and to His perfect will for our lives. Let’s trust Him to work it all out for our good. He’s trustworthy. Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins so that we can be counted as righteous by the Father. Let’s have faith that He cares about every part of our life and every need. Let’s be happy before everything is perfect!
It’s never too late to live happily ever after!
God bless you all!
Happy at Home
