Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.
Psalm 32:10

Recently, my wife and I have been blessed with the company of a beautiful family, whose core center’s around our Lord Jesus.  God is in control of their lives, and it shows. God is their main focus and God works wonders through them because they give everything for him. Not many do this by-the-ways. Not many trust so much in the Lord that pull all the stops and go “all in” on faith alone. Many of us need incentives and persuasions and a little motivation to go “all in” on anything, but trust begins with faith, and faith belongs only to our God.

The Lord wants you and I to pull out all the stops and stop resisting to His will. Stop holding back and go “all in” as well on faith, that our God can accomplish His goals through you. It may be that there is something that might be preventing you from believing that a God can work everything out that has gone wrong with your life. It may be that you feel so lost… it is hard to find the light once again and be free. It might even be, you have been hurt so bad by the ones you held closest to your hearts, that it hardens your hearts and it causes you to close the doors to your trust once again.

You know, God chooses us all to accomplish His will.  Let me tell you a little about Saul.

Saul was on his way to Damascus to arrest any Christians that were in the synagogues. Then an amazing thing happened. Saul was thinking about how he could hurt the Christians as he traveled. As he came near Damascus, a bright light suddenly shone down from heaven.

Saul fell to the ground, and a voice said, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

Saul answered, “Who are you, Lord?”

The voice then said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to fight against me. Go now into Damascus and you will be told what you must do.”

When Saul got up from the ground, he was blind. Others had to lead him by the hand into the city. For three days Saul was blind and did not eat or drink anything.

God told a man named Ananias in a dream that he should go see Saul. He found Saul and laid his hands on him, and Saul was able to see again. The preacher told him to arise and be baptized and wash away his sins.

Saul was sorry for the things he had been doing. He began doing the things that Jesus wanted him to do. After his conversion, Saul’s name was changed to Paul, and he spent the rest of his life serving Jesus and teaching people about him. He became a missionary to people all over the world. A missionary is a person who is sent by a church to teach about Christ.

God uses us all for His purpose. God wants you to trust again. God wants you to open your hearts again. I know most of us have been hurt in someway by someone we trusted. It may be multiple hurts. Try seeing your situation right now. Focus on what are the positives. Remember, a Forgiven Christian is a Forgiving Christian and trust starts with Forgiveness. So, go out and forgive what was wronged, allow the change to come over you and start trusting more in faith that our Lord has your answer.

      True that you might be bias, yet the heart is true before your mind is. You have liked what was felt by your heart first. Remember, just becuase you might feel loyal to me or to whom ever, your heart is loyal to our God first.

      God Bless you my angel,
      Brother Jonathan (AKA, you Hubby!)

      PS: I love you
