Just A Whisper Of His Name

AshThankful

Today I’m thankful that the same God who parted the Red Sea still has His hand and power in all of our circumstances. “The waves and wind still know His name.” So when confusion or hurt, doubt or fears, trials or failures come our way, we can rest securely in a God who works all things – the good, the bad, and the just plain ugly – into His perfect plan.

In those moments that I find myself feeling anxious, I have to remind my heart that just a whisper of His name can cause the mountains to move and the hills to be leveled. God will always show Himself faithful. I am so quick to forget this fact. When worry or hard times hit, I forget all He has done (can I just say how much I relate to the Israelites!) and quickly conjure up scenarios of the worst possible outcome.

Today, I’m taking a moment to look over the last 7 years of my life and choosing to see where my God has shown up. Because truthfully, some days we do have to choose God over worry or anxiousness. Choose to see the good. Choose to trust Him. Choose to remember His faithfulness through the years. Choose to know that He is the God who sees it all and is working in ways we can’t imagine.

Taking Off The Blindfold

BlindfoldGirlSometimes we can live blindly. We go through our routines, living how we want, completely forgetting the God who gave us another day to live. I’ve been in a season of learning to be intentional with what God is doing, painful or joyful. In those moments of truly seeking Him, we are reminded that He is the one who brings the joy and the comfort, that He is working all things together for our good. I’m thankful that He hears our prayers and is in control of it all.
