INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES AND ANECDOTES ~ Serenity ~ September 28, 2011

“We find God’s plans when we surrender ours to Him each day. It’s a moment by moment process of coming to Him, talking to Him, believing He listens and letting Him love us into a place of hope and healing.

God’s love is not a quick-fix for our wounds, but it has the power to redeem and restore us into confident hope. When we allow the Holy Spirit poured out like Living water to go deep into our pain, He can heal our hearts from the inside out.

As we process the pain of our yesterdays and live through the disappointments of our todays, doubts may still creep up, threatening to steal our hope. But each time that happens, we can stop and seek God in that place. We can ask Him to show us His purpose by revealing what is true about who we are and what we have been through to make us start doubting.

Then we can ask Him to help us re-define our future, not through the filter of our past and pain, but through the power of His life-giving truth. And do you know what happens when we do that moment by moment, day by day, doubt by doubt? God tells us in Jeremiah 29:14, “I will be found by you…and will bring you back from captivity.” ~ Sheila Mosely

    These thoughts are the perfect way to start my morning. No, God is not a quick fixer, but is there anything faster than going and surrendering to God for healing? I know when I try to do it my own way, it is torturously slow.

    • Hi Audra,
      Thank you for your continuing support and encouragement. Your comments always add such brightness to my day. Shelia’s thoughts are the perfect way to start a day. I very much agree with you about about surrendering our plans to God’s. God is the great “I AM” who knows full well how to heal us. When we totally surrender our lives to Him, we are given the healing power of the Holy spirit which acts like the wonderful balm that it is. There is a huge difference between doing things our way and doing things according to God’s Plan for us. Bright blessings to you and yours Audra.
