Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Trust doesn't always come easy. If we get hurt by someone or we just naturally don't trust people it is very hard sometimes to trust other people FULLY much less to put our trust in the Lord. Do you have trouble letting go of your control and letting God have the steering wheel of your life? I know at times I do. It's not easy when you aren't in control. It makes us very uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable.
To grow we must step out in faith and get out of our comfort zones. Who is with me taking that leap of faith into the unknown?
Isn't it great to know that no matter what happens, no matter what you have done there is someone who will never stop loving you, never leave your side, someone who is there until your journey on this earth is over.
Who or what is you hope resting on? Is it material possessions, your job, a person? There is only one who we should put all of our hope in and HE is sufficient. His love and grace are sufficient for all things!
Today my featured graphic artist is Lisa Craig. I hope you will check out her website Primsy Doodle Designs and get to know her. She is a great person and does some wonderful work. I am a licensed reseller for all of her artwork.
Here is some information about Lisa
My name is Lisa Craig and I have been creating digital artwork since 2002. My first online store was named Kaitlynn's Kottage Graphic Shoppe.
I am a self taught artist and stay at home mom. My grandfather was an artist as well. I have always loved drawing and coloring :)
I started out as a primitive clipart artist and have progressed into a whimsical art style. A lot of my art can be classified as ; Primsy.
Primsy = primitive with added whimsy :)
I am now licensed with Mc Gaw Graphics/ Applejack Art so I no longer have the time to make websets or custom clipart. I apologize for that.
I really love creating art and I sincerely hope my art brings a smile to your face and a warm feeling to your heart :)
I Wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word, I put my hope. Psalm 130:5
How many of you like to wait for anything? Do you mind having to wait in line at the grocery, wait at the stop light when you are late for work, or just hate to wait in general. I know there are many times when the Lord has told me "Not Now". I'm like why, why can't I have what I want right now. If you are going to let me have what I've asked for, why not go ahead and let me have it now. We are all living in a culture of the "Now Generation." I want what I want and I want it now.
Always when God has said NO to me, it has been for a good reason. It's either something that I don't need, something that in the long run will be detrimental to my relationship with God, or more times than not GOD HAS A BETTER PLAN FOR ME. Yes it's true.
There have been times when I've struggled with illnesses and problems of life and I tell God, "I don't want to go on any more. I just want this to all be over." Why I often ask, and always in the end there is a TESTIMONY from my TEST. Either I have learned a lesson that was meant for me to learn (which is always the case), but ultimately in the end I am able to HELP someone else going through the exact same thing that I have just gone through. God can take anything bad and bring good out of it.
I thank God for the many times I had to wait for HIS timing and not my own. Thank you for giving me what I needed, not what I wanted. The wait was worth it in the end!
