Journal Entry 1.4

I always write when things are peachy but I never really blog in the middle of storms. This summer has been a very challenging summer in every area of my life. Talking to friends I've realized I am not at all alone. This week has been one word CHAOTIC! One of the biggest things I am learning is to realize who it is who is hurting me. We've been so conditioned to blame God for everything. Yes God may allow things but we have a very real enemy and he is the one who is hurting us. Keep in mind God doesn't just see the day you're heart will break but the day his very hands will put it back together. Beloved, God is for you. We don't serve a malicious God but we belong to a God of purpose who has great plans for us. Remember our ways aren't His ways. God's way's are higher. We may not understand and I'm learning we don't have to understand Him to trust Him. Most of the time we don't get understanding in a situation until we finally bow down and say "okay God I trust you". I am learning to be still and know that He is God. I encourage you to do the same. No matter what we are going through God is worthy to be praised. Choose to praise God through your storms.

I share my experiences with you because God is NO respecter of persons if He did it for me He can do it for you so trust your daddy you're His Princess and He wants to enhance your throne!!!
