Have you ever put your trust in someone and been disappointed or let down? Have you put your complete trust in a person and have been crushed to the point you have uttered these words “I will never trust anyone again”? To an extent this is true in one aspect, we should ONLY put our complete trust in God. He is the only one who deserves our complete trust because He will always keep His Word.
The only problem with this phrase is it hinders us from having the life God desired for us to have. If you have been hurt by someone, maybe an ex boyfriend, ex husband, family member or friend and you hold onto this phrase tightly you will never experience freedom in Christ. For this reason, you will always be looking over your shoulder, always questioning and always assuming the worst in any future relationship or you will completely run from starting a new relationship period. Holding onto this phrase will become your security blanket, it will become your motto of living, change your character and have you holding onto past hurts. To think one little phrase comes with a load of baggage to carry on your back.
Letting go of this phrase doesn’t make what the person did right, it allows you to forgive them and the situation that way YOU can be FREE. Free to live life to the fullest, free to experience God’s goodness, His joy, His blessings, His love, His Mercy and His grace. I don’t know about you, but this sure sounds like a wonderful life ahead when that simple little phrase “I will never trust anyone again” is out of our daily life. It’s like removing sunglasses and realizing its not cloudy and gloomy but a beautiful sun-shining day. We are able to embrace the victorious life God has designed for us, the beautiful life full of His blessings. How amazing is that. To be a testimony for Christ as we receive ALL the wonderful things we can’t begin to fathom at one time. Remember God’s thoughts are higher than ours. It may seem like a struggle right now, but trust God for He knows what He has waiting for you. Just trust Him and see what glorious things God will do for you, in you and through you. As you abide in Him He will always provide.
Trust In God
1.Draw near to God call unto His will and purpose for your life.
2.Live a life pleasing to God.
3.Get deep into His Word
4.Have closeness with God.
5.Live faithful to God by hearing and obeying Him
6. Give thanks to God daily
7.Have Joy in your voice
8. Seek peace and presue it.
9.Forgive those who have hurt you and choose not to dwell on it.
Choose to walk in trust in The Lord and have the victory over your past. Leave your past behind so that you can receive the full life God has for you ahead.

“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” (Ephesians 1:4-6, 11, 12, 15-23 NIV)

There are times when someone has said hurtful things or have wrong us or our family. In one moment we have a choice. We can lash out and say horrible things back, as the saying ” tell them like it is”, sure that’s easy. It’s easy to blow up and say whatever we feel. But is it worth it? Are the damaging consequences worth it? Is filling your home with anger, resentment and bitterness worth it? Having your children live in the chaos and destruction of our tongue worth it? The best thing we can do for our own lives and our children’s future is tame our tongue. Yes, the answer is the hard choice. It takes more work, more self control to be humble and do and say the right things. What better example to our children, than to see a mother who is honorable, loving, compassionate and self controlled. She is worth far more than jewels. Be the example our kids so desperately need. Show them that no matter what others say, do, or feel you are a woman of character, a woman of confidence and a woman of integrity. Show them that it doesn’t matter what others say or do its how we respond that matters. Choose to see others through the eyes of Christ. Today put on your Jesus glasses and arm yourself with the garmet of peace and shield your home with unmovable faith in The Lord. Seek The Lord in every situation and trust That God has your back, He will fight the battle for you and He will give you victory over others mistakes and mishaps. You can just relax and rest in the joy of The Lord, knowing full well it’s not worth it to loose it but totally worth it to handle it as a woman of meekness.
“A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell. This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can’t tame a tongue—it’s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth!” (James 3:5-10 MSG)

Choose to walk in kindness today. No matter what may come your way today make a decision to walk in the act of kindness. Sometimes people say harsh words and will hurt us, but don’t let them take root in your life. Hear the voice of God. Look in the mirror and see who and what God sees in you. Gods thoughts are perfect and right on, not the accusations of others opinions. Pray for them, love them and see them through the eyes of God. Hurt people hurt people. Ask The Lord how you can pray for them and make a choice to walk the Jesus walk and talk the Jesus talk. Forgive them and confess your love for them. Pray for God to do His will. Allow The Lord to fill your heart with peace and comfort. As you deside to do this and not harbor hurt feelings or anger towards the person who hurt you, you will be free and feel free. You will walk with a joyous spirit and talk with the Light of Christ shinning in and through you. It is an amazing feeling to choose Gods way vs bitterness and anger. Get your mind on Christ and don’t miss a moment in Gods presence. You will be surprised how great you will feel as you walk out of this with your head held high, knowing exactly who you are in Christ. You are beautiful, you are loved, you are wonderful, you are precious, you are a daughter of the King of Kings and so is the person who hurt you.
“Talk and act like a person expecting to be judged by the Rule that sets us free. For if you refuse to act kindly, you can hardly expect to be treated kindly. Kind mercy wins over harsh judgment every time” (James 2:12, 13 MSG

This past 2 years my husband and I have experienced 3 losses in our family. Through this, especially the loss of my young missionary sister in law, I have experienced God’s comfort. Even though right now it is difficult to understand why she lost her life on a missions trip in Africa heading to preach in a village, I trust The Lord. God will never leave us nor forsake us. The last couple of months God comforted her in the words “you have the victory over death, death has no hold on you. Oh death where is your sting. Your works will not be in vain”. These words she spoke two months prior to leaving in a video diary. God is with us. We are His precious children and He’s loving arms will hold us always. Whatever you may go though this season, know that God loves you. He adores His children and wants to be your daddy. He wants you to trust in Him, lean on Him and stay connected with Him. When times are hard and there seems to be no way, choose God’s way. Open your bible and begin to cry out to Him, talk to Him, and let Him lead you to everlasting comfort. Today choose to not give up. Choose to see what God sees in your trials and focus on God’s goodness. He will see you though hand in hand. Don’t give up stand strong and be victorious. Your not alone God is just a prayer away. Be wrapped in His loving arms today. He’s waiting.
Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you. It is the Lord Who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching, but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit–depressed, dismayed, and unnerved with alarm]. (Deuteronomy 31:6, 8 AMP)

I have come to a conclusion this morning as I was sitting here rocking my baby girl. That anger is a poison, it’s an addiction, it’s a habit, it is something that is learned and something that can consume your life is not controlled. It can be a daily struggle when not taken hold of. As I thought of these things it reminded me of alcohol. It was an addiction, it was a habit, it was something that was learned and something that consumed me. It was a daily struggle year after year. Until I decided that it was not going to consume me any longer. I knew God had something different for me, something new but I didn’t know what, Until I became an overcomer. So if alcohol was a poison in my life and I’ve come to realize so can anger. When you think of anger the first thing that comes to your mind may be rage and hatred. But the truth is frustration and irritation as well as rudeness, sarcasm can be forms of anger as well. As moms we probably had to use the phrases”I’m so frustrated right now”, “I’m so irritated”, “I’m getting annoyed”. It can be a lot to handle kids, house, husband, and career. Your not a bad mom if you used these phrases before, or thought them in the back of your head. I have made a decision this morning and I’m going to treat anger (frustration, irritation, sarcasm, and rudeness) just like alcohol. I’m going to take it one day at a time and I’m going to refuse to have it in my life. It is not a part of what I do everyday. It is not a habit that I cannot kick. I am an overcomer. So just like alcohol you get tokens for every day that you do not drink, Then for every week that you do not drink, And then for every month that you do not drink, And lastly for every year that you do not drink. So I believe if anger is similar to alcohol an addiction inside, then I can place a token and begin to fill my jar with tokens of joy, love, laughter kindness, goodness, gentleness, Peace, patients, and lastly self-control. We are not what we used to be but we are one day closer to becoming the mom God called us to be. We are Overcomers!!

For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. (Deuteronomy 30:16 NIV)
I love this verse. If we obey the Word of God, He has promised to bless us. Just think moms, if we followed The Word God He will not only bless us but our home as well. I want to live a life of pouring in the blessings of God into my children’s lives. As a mom, we have an opportunity for our children to witness the powers of God daily in our homes.
Today pour in the Word of God in your home. Water your children with the overflowing Word of God. Share with them in having a hunger for God’s presence.
It is up to us to fill our children with God’s precious Word and have them experience the blessing from God.
From one mom to another,
