I sometimes am amazed at God's work in my life. It seems like he is always there at the right moment to help me out. When things are slow at work and I dont know how I am going to pay the bills..he comes right in at the last minute with some paid invoice to help me through. When I bought my house I know that it was him working out all the details..when I audited and later found out the auditor was a member of my church, so so many things that God has helped through..

There is just one area of my life that I need to surrender to God and let him work his miracle. that is in finding love at last...instead of all the hit and missed ones.. the men with problems and issues that God miracously takes away from me.

I guess I have not surrendered completely in that area and this is my struggle.

Anyone facing this dilemma in their life?

Hi 2BHAPPY,

I agree with you that God is faithful at all times. Thanks also for sharing this encouragement here!

I have been where you are. Part of it was believing the lies of relationships from my childhood. Most of it was believing that I didn't deserve the best that God has for me. My choices, and everyone's choices I believe, are based on their belief system about themselves, what others say about them, what God says about them...if one is a follower that is.

For a very long time I ignored and did not believe what God said about me...that I am fearfully and wonderfully made, that I am more than a conqueror, etc., etc. I allowed my past and ther people to dictate who I was instead of the God who made me, loves me, has a plan for me. Seeking him first when all of those doubts come in has made a huge difference. BELIEVING that it is a love relationship with Him, has made a huge difference. Because of that, as I stay close to Him, I'll trust Him more and take more chances. I have been fraid to live, and it has popped up in my physical body as well. Not belieivng all ofthat love He has for us, can make us ill. I love Jeremiah 29:11, "For only I know the plans I have for you, not to harm, but to prosper." IF you stay close to Him, and walk with Him, know more about Him, He will give you those gifts you deserve...not because you had to, or because you 'should'...God is not about the 'should's' in our lives...those are things we learned growing up...but He is about freedom and love. Loving Him, and Him loving us. You will meet the right guy at the right time....trust that, ok?

As I have been relying more and more in God and trusting him....I have come to the realization that I am not in control of my single situation..but God is. Everytime a thought comes to mind about my chaotic dating life and the men in...I just pause and say "SURRENDER" and I turn it over to God.. This liberating to me because I cant handle this anymore..I dont want to control my situation because I dont know how and I seem to make a chaos and a lot of drama when I put my hands it. I think God has been trying to tell me "Dont go there" and I still do and this is when I create the drama. I am just asking the Lord each day to guide me and to understands my heart and my mind as it has its own belief system of my past. I want God to heal of me of the past and what the enemy has built it in there. I dont know what will happen tomorrow..but I know that God does and his love for me is so great that I know that if I led him lead me to the right path..he will do that for me just like he has done for everything else in my life.

Today I am up and it is a new beginning. More healing to come. Feeling as if the past is being left in the past. I am acting much happier and I know for certain that God is in control. When thoughts of my chaotic life and the men come up..I have to say the word 'SURRENDER" so that God can take over that thought. It really works...God knows my desires and he knows exactly what I want..I just have to believe that God is all powerful and might and that just like he parted the sea, he can work in my life.

It is so good to see a thread where believers post at this site.

I too have had confusiion.
I turn toward Job lately, as the Lord hath giveth and the Lord hath taken away.

I don't have a way to get to church. It just takes too long to get around. I am hoping that there is one on the main busrout that I can catch soon. Maybe it will make a difference.

God bless all.

Maybe someone from the church would come get you. Could you call the pastor and find out? God will provide the way if you but ask.

God Bless You, Codi202!!! My prayers are with you.
