Do You Trust ME?

I talk to God a lot, but lately, our talks have been juicer than ever!

The best part of my day is when I get a little quiet time and vibe with God. I don’t know how many of my readers believe in God or praise a higher being, but I couldn’t picture my life any other way.

I need to know that there is someone out there that’s better than us!

I go to him on my darkest days, and I do the same on my good days. In fact, on my good days, I can’t stop sending God praise and thanking him for all that he has done and for what he hasn’t done.

When I was a child, I was taught not to go to God with selfish prayers. And to make sure I am specific. So, of course, I would begin by saying, “God, I’m sorry if this comes across as selfish…..BUT!

I already messed up.

So then I would correct myself and say, “Lord, you know my heart, and I’m not a selfish person….BUT!

Over the years, I’ve stopped asking for anything in my prayers, and I talk. And boy, oh boy, that is harder than it seems. It took me 40 years to get it right.

I’ve learned that if I’m quiet, I can hear his words. For instance, before we moved into our current home, I prayed, and I prayed that he would lead us to the location that was perfect for us. I searched high and low for two years and traveled for hours after dropping my kids off for school.

As I looked for homes, I grew more and more frustrated because everything needed significant upgrades. And we all know how pricey that can get.

So after one frustrating day of looking, I fell to my knees and said, “God, I’m tired and don’t know what to do.”

And just as clear as day is long, I heard him say, “I’m preparing your land”.

The next day my realtor said I forgot to show you the new homes being built in a brand new neighborhood.

My mind went immediately to “I’m preparing your land.”

Now let me fast forward to today’s discussion.

I was in the bathtub and having my long-winded conversation with God. I was telling him about a situation that is tearing at my heart. When I reached the end of our talk, he said, “Do you trust me”?

I said, “of course I do”.

I ended my conversation right then and there.

When you trust someone, you believe that they hear you and do what’s best for you. It may not be what you want, but it’s precisely what you need.

Lord, I trust you!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’honored!

    To know the voice or to recognize the voice of God and how His voice reaches us is both humbling and mind-blowing. Sometimes in the process of life’s unfolding one has to trace back to see and feel clearly the stirring of God or the exact moment he spoke to me.
    Yes that was God, this is God, trust. Him.
    I love you and won’t let you down.
    We are all passing through.

    1. Amen!!!! I remember the first time I was babbling and heard him speaking back to me, I thought those were just my thoughts. Completely brushed it off. I didn’t want to seem like I was crazy because you know how some people can be. But nope that was God!

      We are all passing through 🙏🏽♥️

      1. Yes, one us quite flushed upon the realization, and tend to keep that pearl close or slow to reveal it to the world.
        Although most would say, go tell it on the mountain top

  2. I spend some of my prayers shouting at God or in tears when speaking to God these days. Mostly, I say, “I’m so tired. Please save us all.” I hear you. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I so enjoyed your post as I looked back on my own evolution regarding how I prayed, as I read your post :)) I could never relate to praying and the rituals in my family, I didn’t connect to any of that from my heart. I always thought that God was a higher source that guided me and protected me throughout, and yet it took me more than 40 years to learn how to relate, communicate and finally pray to that source, trust the timing, listening in to God’s message for me regarding any situation. It is so amazing once we get it !! : ))

  4. PREACH GIRL!!! 🤗 Be still and hear His voice, His words, and His instructions. Everyone has frustrations, aggravations, trials and tribulations, however, it’s when we LISTEN, that’s when truly hear! Talk about freedom!!! 😁 🙏🏽 😇

      1. Yes I write them down. When I want to pray but feel too exhausted to think of what to say, I read them.

        Yesterday I purchased some notebooks and decided to use one to write prayers. Then I came across your article.

        🙏🏾 Serendipity
