Surrendering it all.............................................

Hello my friends as the Lord Leads and time permits I will share what the Lord is doing in my life. As of the last few weeks He is operating on my heart and as I am being purged of all the junk it is painful however needed in order for growth. As I am going through some painful things the Lord has shown me some things and one being that we have operations all the time to help us, fix us, and at times even save our lives so who wouldn't allow an operation if it meant any of these things however when we are put on God's operating table we tend to want to jump off(at least myself personally) and not allow it the second He begins that heart surgery it is painful and ugly and down right yucky however when He is finished if I would just allow Him to finish it will be so amazing we can all have hearts of Gold if we would just be still and LET GOD purge out all the garbage in our wicked sin filled hearts and not pick it back up. EASIER said than done I know however it can be done if we just trust, Walk by Faith and not by sight!!!! As we go through these times of purging may we take comfort in knowing "The Lord is near to all who call on Him,to all who call on Him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; he hears their cry and saves them" Psalm 145:18-20
"you will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy" John 16:20
Praise God we can sit on His lap go to His word and find all the comfort we need thank you Jesus
The Lord is showing me that there cannot be victories in my life without battles and no mountain tops without valleys so the things we go through good or bad are all important to get us through the next journey He has planned for each of us. I am also learning more and more to "keep my eyes focused on what is right, and look straight ahead to what is good." Proverbs 4:25
In these times of purging it is easy for us to allow enemy to trip us up and attack us to take our eyes off of what is good and right and on to the yuck being taken from us so my prayer for us all in these times is the verse above as well as Phil. 4:8 and 2 corinth. 4:8 and take comfort in knowing that everything we go through is for our good by a loving Father who only wants the best for His Kiddo's (you and I)....................................................
Father I thank you that you care for us enough to purge out the garbage in our lives I thank you for allowing me to see the difficult situations in my life I had not yet truly dealt with and as these difficult situations are arising please continue to comfort me as well as provide me the strength I need because I know in and of myself I cannot handle it alone Father I boldly except all the difficult times that will continue to arise because I know that in these times intense personal growth is taking place and for that I am blessed and excited Lord please keep attacks from the enemy at bay and keep me focused Father I pray that if anyone reading this is also in a time of purging and or reflection in their lives that you bring to them the same comfort you are bringing to me and may we keep our eyes focused on you may we stay in your word and on our knees and may we count it all JOY Jesus name amen......................................................................................
Until next time,
