Doubting God?

We can’t allow doubt in while learning to trust God. God and doubt doesn’t and cannot go hand in hand, one will be forced to be eliminated.

We can’t always trust what we ‘feel’, sometimes our emotions aren’t the safest, depending on where we are spiritually/ mentally.

In that same token, it’s important to learn to trust our inner voice/ intuition/ discernment even if and when we don’t understand it! That’s where God mostly speaks to us. Get quiet and listen. We hear all the time to trust our ‘gut feeling/ intuition,’ but how do we know the difference between us speaking or God? The best way I can explain it is found in Heb 4:12 “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” You hear it loud and clear, deep on the inside. It comes with peace, power, love and authority. It’s a gentle and calming voice.

The holy spirit lives within us, therefore we have to be open to listening inward, not only what we hear outward and from others. Bonus, you will experience peace, his amazing peace here.

If God says something, it surely will be done! It will come to pass. There might be some waiting, some longgggg waiting but whenever we get tired, feel forgotten, or discouraged along the way, we can ask for new strength and comfort, and he will grant these and more.

Go on that uncertain journey, keep walking when the storm comes- and it will come- but standstill, “be still and know that I am God.”- psalm 46: 10

What has God promised you? How long ago was it? Be reminded today love, that his word will not return to him without doing. Keep standing, waiting, cry if you need to dry your eyes, and slip back into your confident outfit.

Pray with me, love:

Lord, before I met you, doubt interfered with my life ALOT! I don’t mean to doubt anything you do because I believe wholeheartedly that you are the only Almighty God, you are the creator, you are alpha and omega, and there’s nothing you cannot do!

My experiences in life, however, caused my trust to be shattered, and even as I’m walking with you, they still affect me from time to time. But, your word said, “not by might nor by power but by my spirit, ” (Zechariah 4:6) so lord, I’m asking you to help me. Permeate all of me with all of you and let me learn consistently and steadfastly to think the way you do and grow in knowledge and understanding that I may grow in being more like you. I desire what you see and hope for me.

Work on me, Lord, none stop; I thank you so much for this! For being in my life and by my side. Help me to work on doubting, especially when I’m having faith in you, when I’m hoping for something, and learning to trust you.

I believe in you with every atom of my being. Increase my patience, father, as I continue on this ‘sometimes uncertain’ road. Let me not rush or become discouraged when I bump into something or get distracted. Or when I meet storms or rough seasons along the way.

Thank you for your protection and guidance even when it seems I’m alone, and you’re not with me; help me once again to remember that “you will never leave me, nor forsake me” (Deuteronomy 31:8) in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Hello, my name is Stephanie! It is my desire for souls to know Jesus personally; To be freed, uplifted, affirmed, and healed through our Savior. Know that you are loved so much! You have so much worth! You ’belong’ even if the world rejects and sees you as nothing! Despite what people around you, or even what your thoughts say about who you are, Jesus's truth is all that matters, and you are precious to him! Here is a bit of my story! I've been oppressed and ’held captive’ in my own mind for many years! I've struggled with depression for over 10 years. I had low self-esteem, not knowing my own worth. I chased after love, affirmation, attention, and a need to feel wanted- in relationships, to finding fulfillment in things. I didn't know how to love myself or how to receive love! I was sad most of the time to the point where I contemplated suicide twice. Deep inside, I felt a little girl full of joy, harmony, and peace who wanted freedom, and to live a fulfilled life; she was trapped inside. In late 2014 Jesus literally called out to me... and told me I would be okay. I committed my life to him in 2016. Since then, so much has happened! I've been finding shelter under his wings, and my mind is continually being renewed by his truth spoken to and about me. I have found and is still amazed by his perfect, unconditional love for me that follows me daily. I have found a secured relationship that attends to every area of my life. My journey started out rough, but it is BEAUTIFUL! It gets rocky and uncomfortable at times, but it is one filled with lessons, wonder, and crazy peace! It's apart of our walk. I am still healing (I view it as a life long process) some days I take a step forward only to take two backward but I now know to not depend on my strength even during healing as I am never alone. There are also many that I am unlearning and detoxing from my spirit that I grew up learning about. I have opened myself to allowing God to use me as I am, as an outlet to reach his precious ones. The purpose of my blog is to encourage a sincere and intentional relationship with Jesus! To help strengthen our faith and walk in him. To heal, uplift, and remind women of who God says we are. To walk in his identity- in hopes that you will know without a doubt that you matter much more than you can understand! I openly share my testimonies and personal experiences. I mean, it's a bit easier to speak and share from experiences. I firmly believe you will be blessed! Find yourself, find your path, and embark on this beautiful journey of life resting in God. Love, it's perfectly okay to be authentic- about where you are in every area of your life- in a world that forces us to mask our emotions and ’put the best forward, so people can ”see and think” we’ve got it all together.’ It's okay to NOT have it all together. Be true to yourself; this is an important step in being completely honest with our Lord.
