Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Releasing It

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Sorry, I have been missing in action. It’s kind of hard to write when things and stuff are coming from all sides and some of it is not yours. (shock face)

I had to walk through a difficult thing by faith and trusting God to get me through it. It took a few extra days because I kept putting my hands on the situation and getting in the way. (gritted teeth)

I realized there are some things we are not meant to carry. I realized sometimes you have to have courage to walk away because life is too short to be around negativity and someone who can’t receive love. (sad face) I realized that God knows best!

Life is a beautiful thing when God heals and makes you emotionally whole from the inside out. (smile) Praise The Lord. (smile) When God loves you, and heals the broken areas within, your heart becomes open and you are able to see your self worth in Him. You believe Psalm 139:14 – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. You don’t have to prove yourself to anyone. (smile)

Learning to release stuff, even other peoples stuff, by giving it to the one person who can do something about it is freedom! I’ve mentioned before, sometimes we have to walk through the thing in order to come out of it better than before. Wahoo, with God, all things are possible!

Be blessed!

Ann, i’m sorry about the challenges you’ve been going through lately. It’s good to know the grace of God is strengthening and keeping your focus on the Lord, who as you said can do all things. I pray HIS grace will perfect you in every way. It’s true, this too shall pass in JESUS name. God bless you!
