I spent some time yesterday looking at other people’s blogs trying to get ideas on how I can improve the image of mine. I’m still in this learning stage of doing that. However, I hope those that have been reading my blog will continue to do so.
Today while we were in church the preacher talked about us controlling our thoughts. He stated that we need to grab a hold of our thoughts and BREAK DOWN why we have them in the first place. Then we need to take control of them and make them fall in line with that of a believer of Christ. It sounds so utterly easy to do, but let me tell you it’s NOT!! Last week, I’ve been stressing over the pregnancy and filled with fear and worry about Zeva coming out healthy and honestly me making it through the whole pregnancy (and all the surgeries lined up afterwards.) However, a true believer does not worry about things such as those because they have the faith of a child and know that God will protect them and get them through the hard times (even if the outcome is NOT what we want.)
I believe with all of my heart that Zeva is a blessing from God and that he wants us to have her. She’s been thriving well despite all the hardship that we’ve endured from the word go with her. She’s definitely been quite active the past couple of days. I’m the one who has been feeling rough as hang, BUT I’ve been able to do more physical activities lately. I haven’t been feeling like I have to stay in bed all the time, and that in itself is a huge improvement!!
So, I need to grab a hold of those negatives thoughts and start to think like that of a child who believes all things are truly possible through God who strengthens us!!
Sometimes in life we are forced to go through hard times, and we forget that we are NOT alone. That God knows his plans for us, and if we lean on him he will guide us in the right direction. He does help those who help themselves. So, we must take an active role in following his lead. Sometimes he doesn’t give us a clear path to follow and we have to take the time to reflect and truly break down our situations.
May you find the courage to believe like a child and to take the time to break down those negatives thoughts that are harming your life and turn them over to God so that you may live completely the life of a believer.
