He is Working Behind the Scenes

It was last Thanksgiving when I received a sign from God where he actually appeared to me in my pellet stove.  I posted a Blog about it and shared this same picture.  It was a memory I will cherish forever and be so grateful for his blessings in my life.  When He appeared, I was pretty distraught.  I won't go into great details, but just know I was dealing with something personal that I just couldn't handle on my own any longer.  Instead of throwing in the towel and giving up, I turned to God.  I talked to Him for quite a while.  Tears were shed, and in the end He gave me such peace.  When I saw His face appear in the pellet stove, I couldn't believe what I was seeing.  When I look at this picture now, it is still clear as day.  His head is turned; you can see one eye, His nose, mouth and even His hair cascading around His face.  He looks so solemn, and His message was so clear.  He took on my burden and lifted my spirits.  He gave me peace, and I knew He would make things right.  

Yesterday, I was reading the story in our book "Signs from God" about this very story, and it was like a light bulb went off in my head and now this story is even more memorable.  It’s as if He wanted me to recognize His role again in this situation so that I would continue to trust and believe that He is in control! He still carries my burden so I don’t have to!

We've all heard and I know we've written how things always happen for a reason and in His timing.  Well, He gave me peace and took my burdens back in Thanksgiving to the point where I knew He heard me.  But, like I said it's all about the timing.  It's not like things miraculously got better.  In fact, they actually got worse.  I could have given up again, but instead I held on and fought and continued to talk to God.  Today, I realize that the changes that finally started occurring in this last month were all part of His plan.  It took 10 months for Him to put things in place; certain events, certain circumstances, certain people, and some heart felt conversations before the changes started to occur. I know now that things will continue to get better and better, and I can rest knowing that He is working behind the scenes. 

I feel so blessed and truly believe that God is in control and as long as we believe and have faith in Him, He can move mountains!  He can do what we cannot! 
With God all things are possible!

Where There Is Faith, There is Hope

Romans 15:13 NIV May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
There is so much to be hopeful for.  We must never give up on our faith and trust that He has a plan for our good.  Believing in Him is what gets us through every day.  While it may not happen on our time table, it will happen the way it was meant to.  Be hopeful and believe....You will get well. You will sell that house. You will kick that habit.  You will love again. You will find a new home.  You will get promoted. You will get pregnant. You will have a healthy baby. You will find what you are looking for.  

Wherever you are in life's roller coaster ride,
Remember...God is for you, and by your side.
When He must, He will carry you through the tide.
Welcome Him in your heart with arms open wide.
Trust Him for He will lead the way for us to abide.
With our head held high, we will feel such pride.
