I believe

In the depths of my heart I believe in the faithfulness of God. It is not easy to comprehend his ways and timing, but through it all I am convinced of His unconditional love for me.

The Prophet Isaiah wrote that our ways and His are far apart .

Isaiah 55:8-9New International Version

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

We align ourselves to fit in His plans and His ways by living a life of total surrender. Yielded and fully trusting. I guess that is where I am right now. I am not afraid, I am calm within me even though every other thing without is screaming worry and fear.

I feel the touch of His hand holding me and a whisper of his voice in my inner ear, saying, “you are mine ,I love you. “

I cannot fully explain it but as I lay in this hospital bed, I am calm and at peace from that assurance that I am not alone.

Maybe you are reading this, and there is a turmoil within or without you. I urge you to believe with me that God will not fail you.

Blessings you are not alone.

I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. Sometimes I wonder, 'if I'd become everything I wanted as a girl, Would I be better than this or caught up in a different whirl?' I close my eyes and hear the voices of those who look up to me, The hopeful eyes in their pictures.....I think I can see what they see, I want to wake up one morning and see the people I care about happy. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I pretend I'm not hurt even when I am, 'Cause when fighting ain't an option,the least we can do is keep calm. There're times when I feel terribly overwhelmed, But bless everything through which I've helmed, There's been God, there's been you, to pull me through. I oft'n worry that the things I so believe in may not be true, And you can trust me to cry at the idea of failing in what I set out to do. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I understand that it's hard to please everyone, But if I could, there's nothing I'd want more than to see a smile on the face of every man. I believe and so say everyone deserves a second chance, I judge not...at least never at first glance. I dream of the day when I can look at my life and say 'this is where I wanted to be. I have, I do, I always will try the best in everyone to see, And I hope at the end of my life, I will not have left a trail of broken hearts behind me.
