Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Philemon 4:6-7

My wife told me something that struck a cord deep with in me a few years ago. She said, “when you have no one else’s hand to hold, hold your own.” And when you are holding your own hand, you are praying.. and I was in awe. You know, she was the one who helped bring me back to the Lord before I was saved. She was and still is so pure and well, just so innocent comparatively to me and I always told myself that I wanted to be like that.

I never viewed myself a Christian before meeting her. I was lost but now found. I love that saying, “…lost but found..” and it’s true. To lose yourself is literally forgetting who you were. Forgetting everything about your past. Losing your old identity and become something completely restored and new again. And that’s exactly what I did and am still trying to do, everday. I put all my faith in God. Every pertinent decision I make now goes before God 1st. And, let me remind you… this is easier said, than done.

When I hear someone say, “put your faith completely in the Lord,” I am reminded of several bible stories, but the one that stands out the most is the story of Joseph. Joseph was 1 of 12 brothers. Son of Jacob or better known as Israel. Joseph was sold into slavery by his greedy brothers to Potipher, chief Stewart of Pharaoh. Everything Joseph did or touched seemed to be flawless because Joseph put his God first, Yahweh. I can go on and on about the story of Joseph but, I want you to read Genesis for yourself. Read about Joseph…

You see, when you and I put God first, everything seems to fall into perfect place; and it’s true too. The timing is just right. Even though we may have “wanted” it sooner… Perhaps even needed it sooner. The Lord has His way of timing everything just perfect in our life’s. The Lord knows what’s best for His children and He alone will decide when your timing will be right for you or I. Soooo, give up and give everything you have, hint hint.. And this is a secret………… It’s, YOU. Give yourself to the Lord. Pray about everything you need and you will be happy!
