God’s girl.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways” – {Isaiah 55:9}

when the struggles and stress of life become overwhelming, God says in the bible to take refuge in Him and have faith that He will guide your life through highs and lows.
I am someone who feels safe being in control of the future, constantly making sure things are in order and go accordingly. however, being a Christian, I am often reminded of the different plans that God has for my life.

I can completely relate to wanting to solve problems myself and feel independent, but in all reality, mere humans made of flesh and bones aren’t always capable of working miracles…. luckily, there is someone who is. God. I like to think of him as my personal life counselor, in whom I can discuss anything and everything with; and he can help me through any obstacles I come across whether it be school, boys, morals, friends or family.

I feel that in this day and age, the younger generations too often seek help from their friends or people they think of as “rocks” in their lives, when they should be drawn to the Lord instead. I myself have forgotten Him in times of need, only to later realize how much more settled I feel after praying to Him.

lately I have been a bit overwhelmed with the loads of homework I receive from the eight total classes I am currently taking. two of them being advanced level college classes. school’s never supposed to be fun, but every year around this time I start daydreaming about summer and each day seems to drag on for hours.

on top of that, I have felt distant with a few friends of mine whom I was closer with around this time last year. I’m aware that people change and things can’t always stay how I want them, but since I’m the caring person that I am I can’t help but miss their wonderful spirits and faces.

I feel like I’m in a small rut, wanting things to be how I want them just because I say so. but low and behold, the world does not work that way and not everything can go as planned.

at times like this I need to remember that God will always be on my side, that I can trust him to help me work through the road blocks that I’m bound to encounter, whether they be big or small.

If I include him in my life and pray for only his plans to be made true, I know that he will to fill my heart with joy; just as he is able to color the sky blue and fill the seas with water.

“I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Maker of heaven and earth.” – {Psalm 121:1}

“In his heart a man plans his coarse, but the Lord determines his steps” – {Proverbs 16:9}

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” – {Hebrews 11:1}

I hope you all enjoyed my small rant and hopefully at least one person could relate to it. thank you for always being stupendous readers, I am always open to sharing my faith with you and spreading God’s love. Have you been struggling with anything lately? if so, I would love to hear about it and how you approach dealing with it. or how you like to connect with God.

    Dear Madeline – As I read your rant, a couple of things came to mind. One is a little exercise based on the passage in the Bible where God says “Be Still and know that I am God,” or in some versions “Be still and see that I am God.” This exercise gets you back to the peace that Jesus speaks of in John 14:27 when He says “Peace I leave with you: my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled: nor let it be afraid.”
