Choosing to Say YES

The past few weeks I have felt God really working in my life, tearing out all the junk, (hurts, wounds, unbelief, lies, distrust) and refining and polishing the little bit that is left and creating something beautiful! (yes, YOU are beautiful)

As I am writing this I sit here and ponder it all… God loves me?!!

But I don’t deserve it, I haven’t earned it, I’m not good enough… these are all lies straight from the devil!

Trust me, he wants you to think that and better yet to believe it. He wants you to tightly wrap your hands around your heart and say, ‘God you can have whatever is left  but I’m tired of being hurt, I’m tired of not being perfect, not being good enough for other people, so I’m keeping this for myself.’

 

 

But God…

God is just waiting for me (you) to say, I choose not to believe those lies, I am God’s! He created me for ‘more then this’. He is asking that I give Him all the broken pieces, and that I completely ‘take my hands off my heart’ and TRUST Him to heal it. He cares about me, He LOVES me, He wants what is best for me.

Once I chose to trust Him completely there was such a peace! (and even though there are still times that I don’t feel it) I am choosing to say, God I trust you completely to take me through this trial, I know its not gonna be easy and you will have to carry me, yet I will trust in You.

 

This week in my Bible study with Proverbs 31 I was reading What Happens When Women Say Yes to God: Experiencing Life in Extraordinary Ways and the one paragraph really touched me, so I personalized it for myself,

‘God is speaking to ME because I am His own and He wants a relationship with ME. He love ME, adores ME, treasures ME, and has a good plan for ME. He longs for ME to know His voice and wants ME to listen to His voice. The only way I can know and trust God in this way is to spend time with Him’.

daisy promiseGod will meet you wherever you are and lead you step by step! He doesn’t ask for perfection. He just wants an open heart that is committed to saying ‘Yes’ no matter the cost.

Here’s a song goes so well with this subject of trusting,

Chime in…

  1. This was just what I needed this morning. We are going through a financial hardship that is not because of something we did, but because of something someone else forgot to do. I needed this reminder this morning. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh Leah, how precious it is to know you hear the heart of God for you! Just yesterday I felt an overwhelming amazement at how God sought me out, and then He bought me with the blood of Jesus. The most valuable currency of all time is what our Father paid for us. I love it when we hear His voice. May the Lord continue to bless you as you press into Him.

  3. Thank you Leah, this is so encouraging. I am too so thankful to God for his unfailing word. His promises are true! And sometimes he allowed me not just to know about but also to feel his presence, care and love. You are right, we just need to trust Him!

  4. Leah!!! I absolutely was blessed by this post. You have been on my mind alot…(for what reason I do not know) but I needed to hear this again. This has been a struggle of mine as well and I have seen that I have slipped in some areas and believing satan’s lies esp in the area…. i am beautiful. Sometimes i know these things in my head but not in my heart and if its not in my heart, i haven’t got it at all. So thank you for sharing your heart!! And yes your are beautiful!!! Love you girl!

  5. Thanks beautiful ladies for all the comments and encouragement! God’s still working on me in so many of these areas but I see progress and that’s so encouraging! His love for me is beyond my comprehension! Love you all!

  6. Hi Leah!

    I love the peace that comes from making a decision… Sometimes the peace is short lived when it doesn’t line up with my expectations. I am learning how to balance that peace with patience (what I wrote my blog post about today).

    Loved reading this and sharing this journey with you! 🙂

    –These words jumped out to me. I, too, have been feeling a bit sifted as God works on my rough spots. We’ve got some major challenges ahead and a friend sent me this verse: Isaiah 63:7-9 ,,, “In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them;he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.”

    May you be aware of God’s carrying. And be comforted.

  8. We are the apple of God’s eye! The love of God is so powerful, yet we constantly need to be reminded of His great love. Thanks for the reminder.
