You came into this world surrounded by love,
Propelled by faith!
Hence your name,
You remind me,
God answers prayers!
He listens to me,
He responds to me,
And even when my request is not granted,
I am honored that He listened
And heard each word with compassion.
You are the answer to my prayers,
And will one day be the answer to the prayers of another.
As I prayed for you before I beheld you,
I am assured that the name you will bear,
Will be achieved the same way!
I thank God for you daily,
And appreciate your many layers.
You truly have an eye for capturing beauty,
Developed from beholding it each morning!
Happy Valentines Day!
Trust and Obey
“Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.”
This is thought that came to my mind as I was driving to church a few weeks ago. A hymn I grew up hearing. Too often we are unable to obey because we don’t trust. We aren’t sure that God can do it. Or we believe we can do it on our own. Or we listen to people who tell us we aren’t hearing from God. That we need them to do the assignment that God has given us or we need their approval.
Our issue is trusting that we are hearing from God and that He can do what He says. One issue of trust is that we don’t spend enough time with God to make sure we know His will and hear His voice. Another issue is that we are still upset by something we perceive God did not do for us. Sometimes we get into situations that God did not put us and we put ourselves and we blame God. Therefore we are unwilling to put our trust in God when we hear him.
My goal for this year is to Trust and Obey! To give God complete control of my life by trusting Him, reading His Word, praying to Him, listening for Him, and obeying Him. Understanding the more I listen the deeper he will call to me!
