Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me.
Many of us struggle with trusting and believing in God, yet with His creations, we have no doubts. Ironic don’t you think?
Just as we trust and believe that trees will regrow new leaves in the Spring season, that plants and flowers will re-bloom, we must learn to trust and believe that God and Jesus will always provide us with the means to make it through any situation, and grow from it, starting anew in a new season of our life. No, it won’t be easy, but it’s not impossible. Allow your leaves to fall where they may, and smile, because in your new season new leaves will grow in their place. With those new leaves come wisdom and layers of God’s transformational goodness.
I pray that each of you find the peace to let go of your leaves, to embrace the life God has planned for you, and prepare yourself for the new season of growth and development. I pray that you also pray for me, because we all have our ups and downs, and Lord knows I need prayer too. The closer we are on our walk with Jesus, the closer we get to God, the more we are attacked by darkness; and the more we need to pray and be prayed for. So please pray for me. I love you all.
Father, I won’t and can’t lie to You and say that I’m not troubled, not saddened and frustrated at times—at myself, at my circumstances, and at the valleys and mountains I encounter regularly. I realize that change comes with a price, something must go before something new comes in.
I know that I’m going through a change, and some things have to go or be realigned, in order for new developments to grow. I have to let go of my fear, and trust You and Jesus to show me the way, to protect me, and to lift me up out of those valleys, and up and over those steep mountains. I know that every day Jesus walks beside me, some days I lose my focus and start walking off the path You have set for me, yet Jesus lovingly and patiently keeps walking and guiding me back to the right way.
Touch and warm my heart. Calm the pressure in my chest, Father. Release the tension in my neck and shoulders. Soothe the cramps throughout my body. Calm my fears Lord. Bring me peace within that I may embrace this change and walk upright, ready for my next adventure, my next demonstration, my next testimony. In Your Name and in Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
Your sister in Christ,
