It’s a new month! Happy new month to you amazing person reading this! I don’t usually do this, but today is a good day, I can’t really say why, but it just feels like a wonderful day. I don’t blog on Sundays, but I felt the urge to speak to you guys this beautiful day, so here I am…
As regards the post title, I decided to jump on the “March” bandwagon, since on BBM and twitter everybody is all about “marching into March with giant strides” “marching into blessing” etc. So me sef I said I will join, come and join me as I MARCH in faith!!! Do I hear an Amen???
Okay moving on…
So, tell me, how are you today? I’m hoping all is well with you and yours, if it’s not, I want to encourage you not to lose faith and trust in God. I attended mass today and the homily really touched me, I was holding back tears when the Rev. Fr. finished preaching…he talked on two major things, but the one that touched me most was about FAITH.
He gave an experience to illustrate the importance of trusting God. I won’t go into too much details, the long and short of it, a lady was in the intensive care ward of a hospital due to complications from childbirth, the mother of the lady called him and complained that the lady was not responding to the oxygen machine…he told her to trust God and that she shouldn’t listen to the doctors or worry about machines not working, all she should do is to believe and trust God. A few days later the lady died, in sadness, he questioned God, asked God why…God told him that the lady’s mother didn’t trust Him, she kept listening to the doctors and putting her hope in the doctors ability.
Sometimes we put our hope in people because they are the ones we see at that moment, we become desperate and forget that God is the Almighty, and only in Him does true power and control lie. See what the bible says here (Jeremiah 17:5)
So we should learn to trust in God, He wants us to trust him no matter what the circumstance is. Blind faith…just keep walking and believe that God is leading you down the right path. Nothing and absolutely NOTHING is too big for God to handle, just believe Him.
I am usually overwhelmed by how much we can get from just believing and having faith. I read the bible and see that Jesus says many times “your faith has healed you”…and I think to myself, just like that?!, if I just have faith as small as a mustard seed, I am covered??? (Read Matthew 17:20) You see, it sounds too good to be true, in fact, it is too good, too amazing sef and most importantly it is very true!
I ask God every time to help me trust Him, especially in situations when I can’t comprehend what’s happening and I feel confused and lost. I ask Him to help me not to doubt Him. I have learnt to let things go (with a lot of struggle of course) and just let God do His thing.
I don’t know what you’re facing, I don’t know how difficult things are for you right now, but I want you to do just one thing… BELIEVE. Believe that everything will be fine. Believe that God will work things out for your good and you will come out rejoicing after it all. Have FAITH in Him and watch him work amazing wonders in your life. (Read James 1:2-18)
Something kept nagging me to type this post and I know my mind would not have rested if I didn’t…I sincerely hope this touched you in some way. So i’m here inviting you, come let’s join hands and march into March (and the rest of the year) with Faith. *walks away while humming ‘kumbaya’*
