What is it about Faith that is so hard to keep? In your heart you know that God is taking care of things and that he has a reason and a purpose for every thing in your life. Seasons of change come for a reason and you know it to be true with every bit of love and everything you have in you. Why is it that the mind makes it difficult? Why such a fight and so hard to get your mind under control?
These things I struggle with, I hope I am not alone. When God is ready to move and make changes, he moves in a mighty way. But when it happens that’s when the struggle with the mind and Spirit comes.
I have been with out a job for a month and I consider my self fortunate. I know there are others that have been out one longer, and yet they keep on going. I am in a battle with my mind, and it’s the hardest thing to fight. I try and try and put myself out there, I have Faith that this job is the one for me, and yet I find out it’s not.
But then again God always has another plan.
So I asked myself, who’s plan am I trying to accomplish? Am I really doing everything I can? My answer is, no sometimes and yes the others. I seem to always been a 50/50 struggle.
My friends and family in Christ, what I have been learning this month that as we Believers’ need to really put our trust in the Lord our Father. Not just say we do. But when someone Prays and says that you will find where God wants you, do you really believe it? I can be honest, that I have doubted.
I am ashamed to say it but I have.
But what I know to be true in my heart is that God will put me where he wants. I told my Father that, “I will go where you want me to go, I will do what you want me to do”. I know that He is in control and the winds of change are upon us.
To Praise him with all we are, and in every aspect of our lives and in every thing that goes on day to day is a privilege, a blessing and a lesson that needs to be learned. It’s a habit that needs to be formed. When we can do that, the fight isn’t really a fight at all. Let go and Let God, easier said than done?
I once thought that, but as I am learning that Praise is the freedom that brings the battle to an end and makes the fight not so hard.
Why fight my own battle? God has it under control.
I hope that this will bring some comfort to you in your time of struggle and Spirit and mind battle.
God Bless you in your life endeavors and Praise Him for who is and what he gives you and never take for granted the love he has for you.
