Simple Trust In The Lord

Inspiration, Soul Seeds

Psalm 131

LORD, my heart is not haughty, Nor my eyes lofty. Neither do I concern myself with great matters, Nor with things too profound for me. 

Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me.

 O Israel, hope in the LORD From this time forth and forever.

Matthew 18:3-5

“Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child
is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.”

 

Soul Seeds…

I finally fell asleep last night with this Psalm. Sometimes the answer to our prayers and life really is just as easy as this ~ for us to maintain a simple childlike belief and faith in God.

There have been so many repeating “incidents” in my life and sometimes people might wonder why I’m not freaking out more or panicked when things continue to happen (even just daily hardships like everyone else has.) It isn’t because so much has happened that I’ve just turned numb although, I must admit, once in a great while I might wish I would :) It’s simply because I choose to have faith. That is just one of the many blessings that can come out of great turmoil ~ it can make our faith so much stronger and ultimately we know we need not fret. I may cry out to God or cry on a friends shoulder once in awhile, but once I’ve processed some of those emotions, I know I need not lose anymore sleep, because  I choose to believe all that He has promised us…

Matthew 6:25-34

That doesn’t mean that I may not suffer loss or feel pain again, but I choose to believe BEYOND that circumstance even ~ it is to believe that no matter what Satan throws at us, God will see good come from it and THAT is what I try to focus on. How about you?

May I be moved by my Father’s love and not by the world’s circumstances!

    Your message Jessie, is close to my heart, to Trust as Children is hard for us because of our abuse but Jesus tells us to ask and we will receive and so we ask and we receive…. He walks with us.

    How are you my friend, are you feeling stronger, I have often prayed for you, my own life has had a few downs with accidents and loss but like you we seek our protector, our Spiritual Husband, our best friend and in Him we are strengthened as you shared… thank you for your uplifting message.

    Christian Love Anne.

    Let us be held in our loving Father’s bosom and comforted as little children. He wants to much for us to engage in this type of relationship with Him as His very own, dearly treasured children. He is also our Good Shepherd through ALL the dark valleys!
