I am finding that no distraction in this life is worth it, and life is not worth living without Jesus in the
center of each moment of it. I have also come to realize that hearing His voice, knowing His thoughts toward me and being held in His presence is the only reason my heart keeps on beating. I refuse to go back to a life of less than Him as I wait for His next
breath into me.
So I must press on, though intense is the warfare against rising. I no longer blame people, the devil or circumstance for warfare, heartache, disappointments or distractions. It seems like
all that simply describes the effort it takes to rise and grow up in His presence. That takes the bite and sting out of much. I hope these thoughts encourage others in such a time as this. 🦋

The Lord Taught Me to Trust
By Kathy Mote
The Lord taught me to trust His will in my life. This means everything
that comes to me goes through Him and I honor Him by trusting Him. When He first taught me this, I felt vulnerable, and that's when He taught me to trust His deep love for me.
I have learned to accept
what happens in my life from Him, up close and personal, because He told me to. Every situation eventually proves to be a great gift, and His thoughtfulness, provision and protection are obvious.
trust unconditional, just like He considers His Lordship to be unconditional. So whatever happens, my heart trusts His perfect will in it. What He sends into My life is His will. What the devil tries to send into my life falls short without touching me. Trusting
the Lord's love is not a battleground.
We have gotten into the habit of deciding what is good by whether we want or enjoy it, and fear is the culprit in this. We have behaved like bless means to be given
our way, but this is a spoiled child as any parent will tell you. Many parents struggle with spoiled children, but not so our Father whose love for us is far wiser.
