This year, Real Women is trying to move into a season of living intentionally now so we can leave behind a legacy of Jesus later.
I want to live purposefully today so that my future can be a testimony of God’s faithfulness.
Admittedly, it is hard to trust God with our future. We know He has good plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11), but when times get tough our hearts can struggle to hold on to faith.
I remember five years ago struggling to trust God for my future when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I knew in my head His Word promised my healing, but I needed those promises to grow in my heart.
I had to come face-to-face with the truth that I was not in control – of anything. Not the disease, not the outcome, and certainly not my future.
I had to fully trust God – to put my life literally into His hands and walk away with only the assurance of His Word.
Maybe you are in a tough situation, too?
Maybe you find yourself staring in the face of truth that says you, too, are not in control?
Maybe you are one step from walking away because you just can’t take the hurt anymore?
Maybe you don’t know where to turn – up is down; down is up?
Can I reach through these words, come alongside you, and tell you –
HE sees your hurt.
HE hears your cries.
HE wipes your tears.
And HE knows this path you are walking – every. single. detail.
HE is in control of every. single. twist. – in every single turn, bump, and ditch you find yourself –
HE holds it all in His hands.
There is no magic formula to faith – it is just being confident that all the things we hope for, those things we can not see right now, all of God’s promises, are meant for us.
All He requires is for us to believe in the promises from His Word.
There is nothing to be added to God’s unchanging words – pray His promises from Scripture and believe for miracles.
REMIND GOD OF HIS PROMISES, NOT BECAUSE HE FORGOT,
BUT SO YOU REMEMBER.
IT IS SO SIMPLE. IT IS ABOUT TRUST. IT IS SIMPLY FAITH.
I am struggling with this right now. Believing that God will Make Our Home More Of A Haven instead of a house where people live. Don’t get me wrong, I believe that God Can. I know He Can. I need to find a way let God ENTER AND HELP.

Thank you for sharing. There are several verses in the Bible about God blessing the house of His servants and, obviously, the temple (house). Here is one you can pray for your home:
2 Samuel 7:28-29 ESV
And now, O Lord God, you are God, and your words are true, and you have promised this good thing to your servant. Now therefore may it please you to bless the house of your servant, so that it may continue forever before you. For you, O Lord God, have spoken, and with your blessing shall the house of your servant be blessed forever.
Praying and believing with you!

There is so much I’m believing God for but most importantly I’m believing God for a deeper understanding of who he is , spiritual dicernment and his purpose for my life.

Elizdah. these verses jumped into my heart when I read your comment. Praying for you and believing for God’s plan to unfold for you
“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Ephesians 3:14-21 NKJV
