From, ‘The Spiritual Life Journal (Journey).” (A personal journal entry- April 8, 2014.) By Timothy Baugh. March 21, 2019.

“As one day flows into the next; may I always move into my future by starting with yesterday.” Timothy Baugh.               With the passage of time comes experience and understanding. Wisdom is only developed by living out the Truth as you have received it. Learning any lesson is difficult only if you resist how it is being taught! Remember this, when you struggle; as such is not necessary. Stress comes from self-effort and one’s own will. Surrender to that True Source of power from God guarantees success in all one’s endeavors. Place yourself in the Master’s hands, and His perfection will flow through you. Jesus has said: “sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.” Difficulties shrink and diminish in size when viewed as ‘stepping stones’ towards emotional maturity. The path becomes easier as you perserve in humble long-suffering and patience. Then will you receive the “second wind”, the breath of the Holy Spirit to inspire you to move further ahead. Don’t waste precious moments trying to force yourself to do this or that. When you walk with the Lord, He holds your hand to lead and guide the way. Don’t worry about others and their walk. They must follow in the Light as well. Enough has been said. Do this and you will be blessed.   “Acquaint now thyself with him, (with God) and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.” Job 22: 21.

The Faithful God


God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Cor.1:9

The faithfulness of God is from everlasting to everlasting. He is the One who hears our prayers.
Sometimes though, it may seem that God is not answering our prayers. But that’s not the case at all because in those times we feel abandoned, despondent and dejected, God is busy working in our favor.

But Jesus answered them (and said) “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working“‘ John 5:17

He is so faithful that He always have answers to our questions and meets our needs in His perfect timing. The problem though is that we may be too busy and full of activities to hear His “Still small voice” 1 Kings 19:12


When
the Lord visited Marthas house, He noticed that she was occupied and too busy to listen to His teachings, Jesus warned her of being too anxious and worried about too many things.(Luke 10:3842)

We should be assured that God is partnering with us so that we are not alone in that circumstances and situations we are in. In His faithfulness, He sees to it that “all things work together and are fitting into a plan for (our) good.. according to His design and purposeRomans 8:28(Amp)
So, there is need for us to wait patiently for God’s perfect timing. It is important that we do not lose faith nor give up on God. Just as prophet Habakkuk said “For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Hab. 2:3

Amen
