Update: Life

Its been a while since my last post and I apologise if you have been waiting to know how I’m going. Thank you to those who have been praying for me, it’s greatly appreciated 🙂

Has my life become less complicated… no
Do I have answers to my questions… not really
Can I see the way forward… not yet
Am I at peace… strangely yes

I really shouldn’t be surprised about the peace to be honest, God promises that His peace will fill our lives when we surrender to Him. I’ve learnt the hard way these past months that I need to submit to my Creator.

Psalm 85:8 says

I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints—but let them not return to folly.

God is asking me to stop and listen to Him, to leave behind the things I think are important (the folly) and to stop and focus on what God says is important. I’ve learnt that in the midst of my turmoil God’s quiet, still voice is there, speaking to me. It’s not what I expect to hear from God, its not “here’s the next step” or “go and do this”, God is telling me what I need to hear, “sit, wait, be still and rest in Me”.

Its funny how it takes an upheaval in our lives to remember who we are and who God is… well its more sad than funny isn’t it?

These times have been rough but they have been extremely fruitful. The peace of God which passes all understanding is an amazing gift from our amazing God… I thank Him for His unending faithfulness to finishing the work He has started in my life…

Lord dont let me get so obsessed with my life that I forget it all belongs to you anyway to do with as You see fit. I want to listen first and act second, teach me to listen to You.  Amen
