Where do I go from here....


Been awhile since I wrote in my blog...where do I begin. Everything has been falling into place as God wants it to and I can't complain. Even though I have had the occasional drama it's been good. Over the past couple of weeks, I have thought about a lot of things and prayed about a lot of things also. I have slipped away from my spiritual maintanence and boy! am I paying for it!! At night I use to sit and read my Bible or a Christian book but instead I have been tangled up in the drama of people. I have realized that some people you just can't change and it's not worth losing sleep over. I was looking at my Bible in Sunday school today and I turned on 2 Thessalonians 1:6 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you 7 and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. As you and I know, God's words are as good as gold- the Bible is his words. Lately, I have let people tear at me with comments and the stirring up of trouble. Is it worth me causing myself to slip back into my old self? (some of you know my old self- not pretty!!) No, not at all. I've come too far! There will always be those who will redicule me and crucify me for what I believe in, my relationships, who I am and so forth due to jealousy and drama. My focus needs to be on God from now on. Like I said I have come to far to slip. I need to make more time to have talks with God. My new motto is "Think Less; Pray more!" People will try to take your focus off God so it's important that you stay focused and not worry about what others say or do. As Edwin says "Don't sweat the small stuff: God will take care of it!"

Jennifer, I'm really struggling right now. I came across your blog and reading everything you said about letting it go and allowing God to guide my life gave me comfort! Staying true to myself and not letting others try to damage the love that God gives me

No matter how big the storm- hang on God will always give you comfort. I hope you come back and enjoy my future posts. I will be praying for you!!!
