Trust In God!

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday...

Trusting God is what I'd like to ramble about this day... such an appropriate topic, wouldn't you say?

Last week, I wrote about trusting in God, the most important thing, and if you missed it, you may read it by clicking here.  

I'd like to expound on trusting in God, just to help anyone who is worried about what is going on right now in the news media, and social media.

I say the medias because that's where a lot of false information can go viral.

There are a lot of theories out there but, there is only one I subscribe to, and that is God is in charge. With this subscription, I believe that all things are for my good, which is my spiritual expansion, which is basically my faith, love, patience, and trust.

Faith, love, patience, and trust comes from God, and is strengthened by God. This strength promotes confidence in this world, which basically provides happiness, health, love, magnificent relationships, and wealth.

The opposite of confidence is insecurity, which is basically fear, aka stress. Stress is the number one cause of every illness. When I say every illness, I am talking about medical, and mental illnesses and physical injuries, but I'll save that for another post.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6, Holy Bible, KJV

God is in charge! If we could but understand our loving Heavenly Father, we could, and would trust Him. Like any loving Father, He allows things for our spiritual growth. The only difference between a loving Heavenly Father, and a loving earthly Father is God is perfect, knows, and sees all things. That is exactly why we cannot lean on our own understanding.

I will not participate in doubt, fear, or worry because I have enough knowledge, and practice, to know what leads to a connection to God, and a faithful, and fearless life. 

If I could do anything in all my ramblings it would be to point anyone, who wants more out of life, towards his or her faithfulness, and fearlessness. I am ever pointing. 

Pointing to faithfulness, and fearlessness begins with belief in, and trust in God.

Yesterday, I spoke to a woman who said she was afraid of what was to come, and then she went on and on about her fear. I politely interrupted her and reminded her that God is in charge, and to trust in the Lord.

Her entire attitude changed, and began to speak the words of faith in God. What an amazing difference a reminder can make.

We must remind ourselves constantly that God is at the helm of it all.

I've said this many, many times, and I'm just a reminding you ~wink~ we are focusing, habitual, mechanisms, and that is why worry becomes so strong. We can change that worry into confidence by practice into permanence via reminders. 

I understand I repeat myself eh-em... repeatedly, he he he. But! Repetition is the great law of emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual learning.

So remember to remind yourself that God is in fact, in charge. We can in fact, expand spiritually through faith, and trust.

One last thing...

I travel all over the United States, I've been to every state except Alaska, and hardly anyone is talking about what is going on in the media because they are confident. The average person is confident, and enjoying life. If you do not see that, it may be because the dramatic people are the loudest people.

Fear is not normal...

Happiness is normal...

The fearful people are the loudest, especially on social media. You may or may not agree with me, and you may even get mad at me but, many people are on social media for acknowledgement, and that acceptance is a false security.

I'm not criticizing anyone, I'm just merely stating a fact that the majority of people are silent and enjoying life, able to see people practicing fear.

Do you ever see others and wonder why they live such happy lives, and you don't?

No? Then you are the norm.

Yes? Then possibly, you are one of the dramatic.

I do not mean to be unkind, and I pray I do not offend. The thing is, when I was young and dramatic, slowly but surely, I discovered it was not normal by paying attention to happy successful people.

It's all about the focus, which is your practice, whether you like it or not.

That's all...

Trust in God my friend...

Contemplate it, focus on it, and you will, without a doubt make it permanent.

And! Meditate! Empty the mind of all doubt, fear, and worry!

One last, last thing...

I look at my stats on how many people read my blog, and it has been double the daily norm. This says to me, stress is high, and people are looking for relief.

The relief comes from your maker, my dear sweet friend. Trust in Him!

One of my favorite friends posted this scripture yesterday on twitter, and I must give her the credit. It is the truth!

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7, Holy Bible, KJV

The crux of the human conditioning can convince people we have no control over this power, love, and sound mind, but I am here to show you otherwise, my dear brother/sister of this world.

I love you, and I am ever praying for you!

Speak soon...
