Trusting God in the Unexpected


Hello everyone!

I had a very interesting weekend to say the least. Something unexpected came up with my health- something that could potentially be serious. I'm in some of the best shape of my life so this is weird for me. I had a cry about it on Saturday and Sunday - mostly because I was frustrated and couldn't immediately fix it.

The Lord has reminded me in multiple ways today that He is with me and He's got me. He is my Joy! I have decided instead of focusing on this circumstance that I can't control, I will focus on Him. Yes I have done what I can do for this situation to a point and now the rest is up to Him. I am choosing to trust instead of fret - and I will admit that is hard considering what I know about this issue. I will say knowledge is not always power. Sometimes the more you know, the more you wish you did not know. God, however, is above any issue and He is bigger than any problem we may face. He also knows everything we don't know.

I have several people praying for me which is so appreciated! I have several friends and family who are so very supportive and I could not ask for better!

No matter this outcome, God has a plan and His plans are not for sickness but for good. That is what I choose to believe, regardless of what the circumstance looks like. Do I have any doubts or will I you might ask? I'm sure I will, I am human. However, I choose not to focus on doubt - doubt steals your joy and mostly helps you imagine things that may or may not happen. I got frustrated didn't I? I am human. We will all face frustration and doubt in this life but it is what we do with it that makes the difference.

I choose to look at Jesus - the Author and Finisher of my faith. Afterall, Jesus said something that has been my go to now for quite some time in the Epistle of John:

John 16:33 AMP; I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]

You see He has already overcome for me so therefore, I overcome. We can all overcome. This promise if for all of us, not just me.

Look to the Author and Finisher of your faith. Trust Him. I won't sit here and tell you it is easy but I will tell you it is worth it. If you don't know Him, call on Him today - He will hear you and answer. Your story and mine are still being written and the tapestry is going to be beautiful!

Overcoming all things,

Elizabeth
