Walking By Faith

It's not always easy to walk by Faith. We are a visual people and we like to know what's going to happen. We want answers now rather than later. However,the Lord plans EVERYTHING together for good. Even in those dark times, when we can't see how what we're going through could possibly be for good, the Lord uses it to bring us closer to Him.

I think over the past years and the pain I've been in. How could my pain possibly be good? How could my suffering possibly be good for anyone? We don't know. I don't know. I don't have all the answers as to the "why" of my pain. The "why" of our financial struggles. The "why" of my husband's cancer. The "why" of his health issues. The "why" of my son's pain. The "why" of everything bad that happens to us and our loved ones.

I don't have all the answers - only God does. The hard part, yet the easy part, is to just trust in Him and know that He is with us. My most peaceful times are those times when I am in the Word of God, hiding his letters of love in my heart, and praying to him about everything. My most stressful days are those where I don't do this, but try to handle it all on my own.

I'm spending this week after Christmas and before the new year to consider my goals for the upcoming year. I'm spending it in prayer and asking God to give me wisdom about what I should do and what I shouldn't do. I'm asking for the energy I need and for clear direction. I have a lot of ideas but I want to make sure that my ideas are from the Lord and not from myself. I'm also discussing everything with my husband. I want to make sure I have his wisdom and insight about things, too. He always has my best interest at heart and he will help me put the brakes on things when I try to take on too much.

My main goal for the upcoming year is to truly walk in faith - to walk with the Lord - to make him the absolute center of everything I do and say. To walk in faith brings peace and comfort and that's something I definitely want.

God bless you - Julie
