God Knows What You Need

God Knows What You Need

So I’m in the process of taking better care of my grass. If you saw my last post on doing the work, you saw the comparison between my dry-thirsty grass vs my neighbor’s well-nourished grass across the street. Well as I was pulling out the sprinkler and testing it out to make sure it was going the right way. I noticed a few birds fly right to where the water was and began drinking and bathing in the water.

I smiled for a moment realizing that God knows what we need and when we need it.

Matthew 5: 26-27 says …

Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?

These birds didn’t know if I would be watering my grass. But it was just what they needed. And I imagine that the birds weren’t having a back and forth convo with God about not having anywhere to take a bath or get something to drink.

You know how we do. πŸ™‚

What’s interesting is that once they were done, they flew off. Β They got what they needed and then were off to fly about.

If you’re like me, you like to have everything in order. You like to know all of the details. But isn’t God funny. He doesn’t give us all of the details but He always gives us what we need. It may not be what we want (sometimes it is), but it’s always what we need.

This week I want you to stop charging God up for things not happening they way you want them to. Trust Him. Trust His plan for your life. Trust that He has everything under control and that He has everything you need and will provide it at the right time.


This week I want you to stop charging God up for things not happening they way you want them to. @TrueheartSpeaksΒ

Mind Over Matter Monday – Motivational Minute 439

It’s Mind Over Matter Monday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Stop Worrying!

000-God-cares-for-you-so-turn-all-your-worries-over-to-him.-1-Peter-5-7-CEV

YES… stop worrying. Β The more you worry, the more stressed out you are going to be. Β Some things you just can’t control and others wellll… even if you can control them, worrying about it doesn’t make the situation move any faster or get any better. Β  If you can control it , stop worrying about it and get moving to make the necessary changes. Β If not, stop worrying, give it to God and live in the peace and joy He has given you. Β As 1 Peter 5:7 (CEV) says, God cares for you, so turn ALL of your worries over to him.

Over the next 40 (well 32 days) I will be participating the 40 Day Surrender FastΒ (for 40 days you surrender something to God. Β It doesn’t have to be food, it can be anything like TV, social media, sugar, shopping, etc. It’s usually something that has been getting in the way of your relationship with God)Β and I have surrendered worry and doubt. Β Because I am a thinker and a planner, I tend to over think things and sometimes worry myself (& my husband) crazy. Β Recognizing that I really needed to trust God more and let Him do what He does best in my life, Be GOD, I asked what to surrender and this is what he gave me. Β One of the suggestions Dr. Celeste gives as part of the surrender fast, which I’ve done at least 2 or 3 time now, is to meditate on scriptures that reinforce what you are surrendering. Β So I would suggest you do the same.

Here are a few scriptures to help you out:

  • 1 Peter 5:7 (CEV): God cares for you, so turn ALL of your worries over to him.
  • Psalm 55:22: Cast your burden on theΒ Lord,Β And He shall sustain you;Β He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. (NIV)
  • Philippians 4:6:Β Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. (CEV)

YOUR TURN… on this Mind Over Matter Monday, tell me, what have you been worrying about? When you find yourself worrying, how do you get past it and stop worrying? Β How can you begin to turn all of your worries over to God? Β How would that make a difference in your life knowing He’s waiting for you to turn them over instead of carrying them on your own? Β Other than the scriptures I listed, are there others you would suggest?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 416

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

TRUST THE PROCESS!

On this Wise Wednesday, I want you keep doing what you are doing. Β Don’t get discouraged because you don’t know exactly how things are going to turn out. Β Trust the process and trust that every step you take toward purpose is right where you are supposed to be. Β Sometimes not having all of the answers isn’t fun but most times it is the best thing for you. Β Believe you me… I know. Β Sometimes we have to just trust that all things are working together for our good.

Martin Luther King Jr, says “Faith is taking a step even when you can’t see the staircase.”

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, you’ve got what it takes but it will indeed take all you’ve got. Β But in giving it all you’ve got, sometimes you’ve got just give it all you’ve got without knowing all of the answers. Β Plus if you knew everything you’d have to go through to get to where God is taking you, you might not go. Β πŸ™‚

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me how will you trust the process more on this journey you are taking? Β Do you need to know all of the answers and all of the details before making a decision?

Share your thoughts in the comments section.Β I would love to hear from you and so would our followers. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

It’s Wise Wednesday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…
