In Quietness & Confident Trust
As I woke up and went to Church Easter morning, I was very angry. I was angry that my weekend didn’t go as I would have wanted, angry that I’m not getting the attention I want from my boyfriend, and just angry at the world. I kept asking God to take this anger from me and restore my heart with peace. Then during church, the pastor delivered a great message. He spoke about how In today’s society, we view our sin as environmental and often blame everything going on around us for our unhappiness! But he emphasized that our greatest struggle is our sin – our very own sin! We must take ownership and ask for forgiveness and repentance in our own life! On a daily basis, I struggle with handling my emotions and being dependent on my boyfriend rather than being dependent on God. I have been aware of this for a long time but it’s finally starting to sink in.
Last night, I stumbled across a blog on Pinterest “The Patient Wife” and I couldn’t have said it better myself! http://joleneengle.

Jolene speaks about how we are often trying to control or fix our men in hopes that we can lead them to do what we want or become more like Christ but do we really think we can do a better job than Jesus?
Sometimes a woman needs to run to her savior for comfort, acceptance, love, and strength when times get tough or things break her heart!
Now, I know from experience, it’s a lot easier said than done. This is something I know I will need help on a daily basis.
As I turned to my daily devotional yesterday, it said “through our weakness, he provides an opportunity for His power to shine more brightly. In quietness (spending time with Me) and confident trust (relying on My sufficiency) is your strength”. God knows exactly how to speak to us exactly when we need it! His timing is perfect; He is perfect!
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for being my rock and showing me the way! I desire to be strong and so confident in my Walk with you Jesus that it’s contagious to others! Amen.
