I feel guilty about feeling so surprised. I’m a Christian and Bible teaches that if we ask God for something he will give it to us as a blessing. We are supposed to believe in and trust the word of God but sometimes I wonder if we truly believe all of what we claim to believe.
No one reads this blog so I could probably confess to a murder and get away with it. But on the off chance that anyone ever reads this I will not share the details of a struggle that I have been having. I actually had a few different struggles that I have taken to God in prayer. You know what. My prayers were answered. It’s a pretty amazing thing to have your prayers answered by God almighty. Why does He listen to me? Why does He even care? I have many qualities that I’m pretty proud of but I still don’t think I’m anyone all that special. This really blows my mind.
My struggles have come from feeling really stuck in a rut lately and I didn’t see a way out. I saw and still don’t really see a way out of my situation. I was really despondent about a few things going on in my life. I talked to God about it in prayer and things changed. They are small things but they are very meaningful to me and give me a great deal of hope for the future and for my relationship with God.
I’m so glad that I know the Lord. And I’m so glad that I stepped out on faith and prayed about my situation. I’m so grateful that I knew to turn to the Lord. And I’m ashamed that I didn’t have enough faith to believe that I would be blessed and delivered the way I have been. God is really good.
Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see.
