Gods Will For Man - Willing To Listen By Joshua Mumphrey

Christian Author Writer The strong willed woman with unwavering trust in God, is someone the family held close to for comfort.

Throughout the good and bad, happy and sad, this remarkable God-fearing woman was always there to lend a hand…

Those very same hands she extended unconditionally don’t work as well as they once did, and those feet she used for traveling and ministering are weak, unsteady and worn.

Those wise words of wisdom she gave, don’t seem to come out as clear or as often now days, but within her heart is joy and love of God which assures a better and brighter tomorrow regardless what she faces today.

This mother and grandmother named Mary, is the foundation of our family and has endured so much in the past few months. From the horrifying rush to the hospital late one afternoon and the safe and settling return home, she has remained in Gods hands and grace, lifted up in “prayer” something she adamantly taught her children to do everyday of their lives.

Three strokes and a heart attack later, my grandmothers condition has taught us a lot about ourselves we wouldn’t have known otherwise. We are reminded to be closer, to love deeper, acknowledge God more and most importantly pray. Prayer is one of the most important parts of a Christians life and it’s something we all must do regularly when our minds are burdened and our faith is weak. It provides spiritual and emotionally healing that only God can bring.

Trials come not to hurt but to teach and to mold us into the kind of Christians God wants us to be. There is always a reason, a lesson in which God wishes us to learn or a purpose he wishes to manifest and fulfill in our lives. It is in these circumstances that we are more open, vulnerable and dependant on a higher being than ourselves. In some cases we are drawn back to Christ, like a lost lamb that was once separated from it’s good Sheppard.

The journey of being a Christian doesn’t always come without casualties, the Holy Bible is a testament of that truth, but it doesn‘t mean God is angry or unkind. It’s his love for us that he sends us through to make us polished pure as gold, after being tried in life’s raging and fiery furnace.

We must remember, that sometimes this journey is a lonely walk and that we all must take each step at a time, day by day, month by month, even year by year. The path does get easier, even though it seems that road blocks are at every turn. Try focusing on God and God alone. His direction never falters, allowing grace to follow as you reach your destination.

When you have done all you can surrounded by pressure and problems, consider asking God a simple question. “What is it lord, through this situation or circumstance that you wish to teach me?

Don’t worry, He’ll answer. You just have to be willing to hear his voice and listen.

Spiritual Acknowledgments - Isaiah 14:24

“The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely, as I have thought and planned, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand.”
