Thank God For The Silver Lining

“Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.” Jeremiah 17:7

As humans living on a broken and corrupt planet we will have troubles but if you know the one who has all the answers you will be blessed if you let him take care of them. In the beginning of 2022 I decided that if I couldn’t do anything about what was happening and going on in my life. I would trust that God would take care of it. My job was to focus on him and his love for me. That turned out to be a very wise decision. People in general like to focus on the negative. For example: I lost the crown off my tooth and chewing became difficult because there wasn’t anything hard to chew with and my jaw was sore. I could complain and focus on that but in Phillipians God tells us to dwell on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy. So I always try to refocus when trouble comes on something good. Like the beautiful weather we have been having and the delicious breakfast they brought me this morning. I seldom have pain but I have learned how to overcome and stay focused. When someone doesn’t understand me and I get frustrated I try to find ways to show them that I am just trying to help make their job easier and not being bossy. After 17 years of being taken care of I do know what does and doesn’t work for me. I try very hard to make things simple if I can. People like to do things their way and that’s fine. But maybe I have an easier idea that someone else tried. Some days I just go along with whatever and the job gets done. But everything is not in my hands but Gods. I know he loves me and will take care of me. I have started memorizing scriptures again. Because I have found that speaking scriptures encourages me and lights a fire in me. I believe God’s word and though some seem impossible, God proves them true every time. Better than I can imagine. And the cherry on top is that one day I will get to live with God forever and no eye has seen nor ear has heard nor could we even imagine the things he has waiting for us and I can imagine some amazing things.
