Tough times call for drastic and tough measures. Or do they?

Tough times call for drastic and tough measures.

Or so we have been told. But does it have to be that complicated?prayer3

Now, I know that things can be hard and not every thing is all that simple. Or is it?

Aren’t we told to trust and believe? Aren’t we told to give everything to Him?

Sometimes easier said than done, I know. But if we truly believe that He is our provider, our way maker, our healer, our tower to run into, our rock, then why isn’t it that simple? We live in a fallen and sinful world. And we get caught up in all the muck and mire of the world instead of just resting at His feet and in His presence. He DOES talk to us and He DOES give to us His directions as He is working it all out for our good.

But it is up to us to spend time with Him and to listen for His voice and to listen for His directions. And when we do, how much simpler life can become. Come to Him with childlike faith believing that what He says is true and that He is everything that He says that He is. And that He will do everything that He says that He will do. Not doubting. But walking by Faith not by sight. For He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him and walk in faith. Not saying that what we may have to do or go through is simple. But even still through it all He will see us through and give us the strength and peace to walk through the fire and to never feel the extreme flames or even come out smelling like smoke.

Come to Him all who are weary and He will give you rest. And He will give you strength and peace through it all. Notice it’s THROUGH it all and not instead of it all!! He will see you THROUGH to the other side as He completes His mighty work within you. For we all will go through tribulation. But He has overcome the world. And He has made us over comers as well. Amen!

Though life may seem hard and complicated sometimes, I have come to give you rest as you come to me and lay your burdens at my feet. Give it ALL to me. And I will take the complicated out of your day and give to you peace and joy instead. I will give to you beauty for your ashes. For you were never meant to bear all your burdens alone. That is my job. I will bear all of your burdens and make a way for you where there seems to be no way. So that you can come rest in me. Believe and receive what I have already done for you knowing that it is already taken care of and that I am making a way for you through the wilderness. For I go before you preparing the way for you to be victorious over all. And you shall see the light of day once again.

Your mourning will turn to dancing.

You shall be restored.

Your latter shall be greater than your former.

It is done.

It is finished.

Believe and Receive My Peace, My Joy, My Strength, My Provision, My Love and My Victory over all! Believe and Receive!! Amen!

Always walking in His Love and Paying it Forward!! Amen!!
