    How to Trust God

    My word from the Lord for this entire year is “trust.” I’ve written a lot on the subject and every time I pray and ask the Lord what I’m supposed to do or if this situation will ever be resolved, I always hear Him say, “Trust Me.” I hear that a lot, don’t you? Trust God. Just trust God. Give it to God. You’ll have peace and not worry if you trust God. That’s all well and good, and certainly true because it’s biblically sound, but telling me to trust God doesn’t help me at all. You see, I grew up in the church. I was saved at five and…

    What to do in Hard Times

    We all know that times get hard whether you’re married or single, but if you are married you don’t have to go through those hard times on your own. Yes, we can always have friends and family to help us, and God will never leave us nor forsake us, but if you’re married you have a live-in helper too. You and your husband will go through hard times together. We can’t always prevent those times from coming. We can’t always make them end  – sometimes God wants us to go through them. But we do have a choice on what we do in those hard times. I see married couples…

    The Worry Cure: Part Two – My Worry Profile

    I started going through “The Worry Cure” by Dr. Robert Leahy in the last post. So far I like it, but it certainly hasn’t cured my worry. Then again, I’m still only in part one of this book. In this post, I’m going to write down what my worry profile is, according to the results of the five tests I took in the book. They are actually very accurate and it’s good to know what is going on in my mind, because most of the time I didn’t even think about any of this consciously. But now I need to know how to solve it! According to the book, I…

    The Worry Cure: Part One

    I am a chronic worrier. Honestly, I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t worrying. It’s always been bad, off and on, but lately, its getting to the point where it is almost debilitating. I don’t want to do anything except curl up in bed and pray to never wake up. So, my husband insisted that I needed to find something that would help me. I love God’s Word, but it just wasn’t helping me to stop worrying. Maybe I’ve just heard the same Scriptures so often that they don’t offer new meaning. But I also believe that God helps us discover more about the human mind…
