When you’re ready, you will trust in GOD again… you have that choice, you own that decision only you can make, you have the will to empower trust in HIM whenever you want to practice it…

Trust is a heart and soul thing that grows after you set your mind to begin the endeavor again… You can learn to trust in HIM with moments (like your move to a new place) and choose to trust HIM for healing (like your lifelong journey through trauma/abuse to triumph/astounding) whenever you want… When you fall back to not trusting, from that low point and helpless perspective; you can once again look up in trust to your Heavenly FATHER who gives good gifts and wants to love and care for you… You may choose to trust in moments or a daily decision through prayer (prayer is turning to HIM in trust) and pouring out your heart (through talking to HIM out loud, quietly inside, or writing it out)…

You’re loved and cared for not matter what… You’ll get to know/relearn HIS love and care as you decide to trust when you choose to… I am proud of you when you choose to reach out to those weak in need of love and care… In your weakness, JESUS is strong… Being there for them in being who you are matters and is doing good despite what you may feel or think about yourself… You are showing faith in action; doing GOD’s will in doing HIS Word:

Psalm 41
1 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
2 The Lord protects and preserves them—
they are counted among the blessed in the land—
he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
3 The Lord sustains them on their sickbed
and restores them from their bed of illness.

verse 1 “regard for the weak”; for me the orphans, for you may be anyone weak you reach out to (orphans, special needs children/adults, homeless, abused and neglected souls, widows/widowers, or elderly)

Focus on these Words above and let it become one of your life verses/life mantra…

These verses helped me hang on, believe and trust, and reach out and one day HE answered these promises in my own life… These awesome Words came true through HIM and through me, for me, and in me… I still cannot fathom the turn-around in my life because of JESUS the Living and active Word bringing this about and GOD the FATHER’s mercy and compassion for me…

Look carefully and choose to believe and trust for these to be your benefits as well:

1) delivers them in times of trouble
2) protects and preserves them / does not give them over to the desire of their foes (who want to steal, kill, or destroy; suicide)
3) restores them from their bed of illness (physically or emotionally or mentally or socially or spiritually; for me all 5)

If HE did it for me; I know HE will do it for you… Why? because HE is true to HIS Word and desires to be faithful in a person’s life
When? in HIS timing; so difficult to wait I know (took years for me) maybe for you quicker than my experience
How? in small and grand ways along the journey; sometimes miraculously
Who? you (for you do have regard for the weak)
Where? inside you

I know I went through what I went through to be a help/support to others weaker… This is ultimately the outcome from what I didn’t think was fair, what I didn’t understand, why I was abandoned, why I was often alone in my trauma and not knowing why GOD wasn’t there bringing me through like I knew HE could; why it wasn’t right a way – yet waited for me to learn mercy and compassion at the core of who I am now… HE took me through the depths of darkness to reach out to anybody now with profound faith, hope, and love… with confidence in HIM and who HE is and what I now know HE can/will do…

Much of my trauma was self-inflicted (so full of guilt and shame) from turning away from GOD in rebellious youthful sin and desires being as lost as one can be. Yet I turned to HIM and HE still answered me… me? why me? why HE didn’t abandon me further? why did HE not leave me in my sin? HIS love is greater than anyone can know or fathom… Now I live to show HIS love I know and continue to attempt to fathom… If I didn’t learn through painful depths to know HIS love, mercy, and compassion; then how would I know HIM as HE is and learn that I could reach those who may be in need… HE will choose and use the weak and unlearned to profound the strong and wise… There is so much darkness and cruelty in this world. HE takes some of us through trauma and darkness so we can be a light that shines in it as HE rescues precious children, men, and women that need HIM… sometimes to reveal what HIS love is through us… We choose to pray for and be there present and intercede for them because we know… we understand… we will stand for them… we will choose to love… we will choose purity… we will love purely… Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see GOD (Matthew 5:8)…

You’re not a failure… You’re more than a conqueror through HIM who gives you strength… When you are weak come to HIM for rest… When you can’t do it anymore, wait on HIM for renewed strength… HE is faithful to HIS Word even when we are not…

Oh and let’s look at Psalm 41 vs. 4

I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord;
heal me, for I have sinned against you.”

What if we have sinned in some way!! Well I asked the LORD for mercy and to heal me of course… And so, HE healed me… me… and you?… you too!!!…

Ok! So you just got the wave from HIS ocean that was building within me to reach the shore of those needing mercy that will also be a blog post for my website that I have been wanting to write on Psalm 41 for a long, long while… I wrote this for you for sure; yet it is also for anyone else needing encouragement as well…

I wish I had faith

like you to believe

How do you receive

what is hard to conceive

You’re close, near to what you say

I sense your wonder

You’re aware out there is thunder

You can’t see, but hear echoing asunder

 

Faith comes by hearing

Into your mind at the start

HIS Word nearing your heart

For your soul salvation impart

Storm is the metaphor you can’t ignore

Lightning seen is HIS appearing and dying; the love that is true

Rain is your crying as HIS blood and water fall; worth buying all that is you

Clouds are the darkness that enshrouds your understanding of sin and shame lying to disprove

Clear skies are what finds you out of hiding into HIS forgiveness providing a breakthrough

Rainbow is HIS life arisen over arching your own to give hope and a future making all things new

 

Storms of life get in the way

Where will you go for a light to retrieve?

How will you cope when the dark tries to deceive?

Who will you turn to when you have to grieve?

 

JESUS is close, near when you pray

HE senses what you’re heavy under

HE is aware of heartache when you blunder

HE sees to defend from the enemy’s plunder

 

JESUS is the calm of your storm always

Today is the day of your salvation, so finally believe

As a little child trusting, choose to receive

It’s okay, do not fear, HE gives more than you can conceive

 

You’re close, draw near and HE will draw nearer than what you say

 

All in wonder as you wonder of HIS wonder

HE speaks in the quiet and the thunder

Angels rejoice in echoing asunder

 

 

Read between the lines

Exists before space and time

Creator of every life design

Enter through atmosphere confine

As a human like you, yet still divine

Break into gravity of daily grind

For a short life span grow and refine

Few years to heal the sick with sinners dine

All that’s lost seek and find

Light of the world brightly shine

Died on the cross; forgives sins within and debt of crimes

To rescue…, restore…, redeem…; save all that is MINE

You can do all things through Christ when abide in His True Vine

Plan for a future and a hope offered to mankind

With purpose and vision HE will assign

Into GOD’s family adopted as sons and daughters entwine

That HIS love never fails and HE’s coming again remind

Every tongue, tribe, and nation in Heaven combine

You, precious one, exist in a small space and for a short time

Choose to believe and trust in HIM for all eternity sublime… Where, after death, will you consign?

To JESUS who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life abide and align

Who you believe…, for your eternal destiny…; define you between the lines…

 

HIS perfect love

is eternal life

even for you

to reach who

is outside

the

lines…

 

To HIM bind

Into HIS shelter hide

Tears HE keeps; confide

of all the hurt that has pried

for all the reasons tried

and why you’ve cried

while in the desert dried

deserted by those who lied

Let HIM now guide

Into HIS heart open wide

Come inside…
