Which Way Do We Go, George?
Who is George? I don't know. It was a saying I heard off of a Looney Toons cartoon when I was young. But one thing for sure, the character trusted that George knew the way. Do you ever feel like you lost the road map to life? I have been there, actually, I am still there. Since my Daddy left, life, the holidays and all the awesome experiences I am being blessed with, are just not like they used to be. I haven't given up, but truthfully, it has been hard. That is why I am glad even in my struggles, that I am surrounded by wonderful people. It is encouraging to know, even in the midst of confusion, He never changes. God has been so good to me. For that I am thankful; but believe you me, I have asked a million times over, "Which way do we go?" I am, daily learning to trust Him more and more.
If we all had trust, life would be so easy. But then again, nothing truly good, is easy; is it? I have had the honor of meeting many amazing people during this journey of a blogger's life. I am often discouraged by social media and checking statistics and analytics of traffic and blah, blah blah. Oy vey! And then, I come across beautiful people and communities on Instagram, like @seekingharvest and it's founder, Hannah of Brisbane Australia. We linked up and she is my guest blogger today! I hope this encourages you to hang in there and trust even when you don't know which way to go, when things aren't going your way, and when those mountains just don't move. Today, I introduce you to Hannah. I also introduce you to her heart.
Trust Him even when the mountains aren't moving
Mark 11:23 "Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them."
Every moment we doubt, every moment we are unsure about the future, every moment we don't know what to do- it never changes what God sees. He sees blessedness, victory and freedom and sometimes the mountains in our lives often distort this unchanged perspective that God has for our lives.
That's where trust and faith comes in. In this verse it says that if we believe the mountain can move then it will. However, what can stop this is doubt. I'm sure you have been in situations before where you doubt the promises of God or doubt the visions He placed on your heart.
Truth is that God knows what tomorrow brings, He has planned every single day of your life.
So when you don't see the mountains moving just keep trusting Him.
I know it sounds simple but trusting will move your focus away from doubt and closer to the nature and perspective of God.
He will never leave Your side, He is forever in your midst cheering you on and helping you in this journey of trust.
What can you do today to increase your faith?
How will you trust God?
