Psalm 46.10 – Be still and know that I am God.
I knew what I wanted to write when I was sitting on my red sofa but the words seem to have floated away from my head. Probably a typical Hannah moment!! I am not afraid of what the future holds for me. I feel close to the Lord. He’s the centre of my world as I draw closer and closer to him during this time. So much has happened, and I am so thankful to God for his goodness for me. I don’t want to change my circumstances. Another thing that often comes to my mind is this – be content whatever the circumstances you find yourself in. And so I am content. I am peaceful. Praising the Lord for his goodness for I have seen him move mountains in my life.
I want to draw closer to God. I want God to use me for the glory of his kingdom. I want him to give me the courage to go forth in this world and proclaim everything he has done for me. I don’t want to live without God, because without God who am I? Who do I become when God is no longer a part of my life? Do I have hope without God? Do I know how to love without God’s grace? I know how to love better when God’s in my life for he teaches me so much about his unconditional love for me. And so I place my trust in the Lord. I place my life in the Lord. I surrender all and I believe. I continue to believe for his goodness to reign in my life. He will be my strength in times of trouble.
I am so thankful to God for how he saw me through each and every single struggle. A year ago I was in a completely different head space. I wasn’t well. I was struggling with so many things and yet by the Lord’s grace I was able to overcome the trials. I was able to move forward step by step. I met a wonderful man of God who has now started walking alongside me. We share our experiences and encourage one another. We trust the Lord. We trust the Lord for our future as we walk towards being united as one and I am so thankful for this miracle. So grateful for all the experiences I have gone through to make me the person I am today. Without these experiences I guess it would not have prepared me for marriage or made me the woman I am today. But because i have gone through these things, God strengthened my character for whatever will happen next in the future. In Him I trust.
My soul is content. It is well with my soul. It is well, indeed.
