You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.
Stead fast: Resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering
trust: confident expectation of something
The last few weeks my mind has been racing. Should I buy this car? Is Daniel back healthy? Am I ready for a relationship? Am I doing a good job?
I am my biggest critic and it is hard for me to control my thoughts, my thoughts like my words tend to ramble at times. This is why this Scripture from Isaiah speaks to my soul. I must learn to keep my mind steadfast (resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering) on trusting (placing confident expectation of something) on God and His promises to me.
I will never go through this life and not make a mistake, I am human, but what I can do is be so fearful of making mistakes that I live a life that is not true to what I claim I believe. I believe that Jesus was dead and He rose on the third day..meaning not even DEATH..can stop Him. He is unstoppable. And when we accept Him we are endowed with that same power because HE is in us. How awesome is God that He is so willing to share His love and power with us! He is incredible.
Now that I have decided to really trust Him I’ve decided to do two things: 1) I entered into a relationship. It has been almost four years since anyone could claim me as their girlfriend. I have been so fearful of being open emotionally that I kept every dude at a “safe” distance..but my boyfriend has been extremely patient and has been my really good friend for almost six years. So he knows all my quirks LOL and surprisingly he’s still into me 🙂 But from this situation I’ve learned that fear will stop you from moving forward even with something that you really want to do..something your heart desires and longs for. Who am I not to go after every single dream and desire that God has placed in me??? The second thing I have decided to do, write my vision for my life..the life that I have always wanted but been afraid to go after. When this life is done, I don’t want anything left on this plate. I want people to say I glorified God and lived my life completely pored out. I want to be completely empty of myself and filled with Christ before this life is over.
God is a God of overflow, abundance. The sooner we walk in that Truth the closer and more intimate our relationship with the Father becomes.
