Why I Smile When Sparks Fly Upward

Sat, Jan. 17, 2015 Posted: 12:56 PM


 "Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward...

...I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:Job 5:7,8

So as it is, life has unleashed a fury of sparks in my life.. far too many to list or even acknowledge here. I am almost consumed by the intensity of this raging attack against my peace and humble joy. With arms stretched upward, desperately reaching for Abba Father to lift me out of the trouble, I cried out to Him in prayer and in praise for his sovereign place in my life. I have a Heavenly Father who sees all things, I have a King who rules over all things, I have a Savior who gave His life to give me VICTORY over darkness and death.

LORD HEAR MY HEART,
HEAR MY PLEA,
HEAR MY SOUL CRY OUT TO THEE.

"Therefore I will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;" Psalm 46:2

I have no idea how to handle the issues, what the right thing to do is, where to go, I am completely at a loss of every logical sensible thing to think. The amount of "sparks" flying in my life right now has me in a place where I need to choose despair or faith. You all know I choose FAITH without question! There is no doubt WHO IS ABLE to take care of my EVERY NEED.

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom (what) shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom (what) shall I be afraid?" Psalm 27:1 (I inserted what)

I still see the beautiful things in each day. I still find the joy in living. I still have hope in what I cannot see. I still believe that good will prevail. I hold tightly to the Giver of life. I am smiling as everything is getting ripped away from my life... not because I want to see it go... but because I know Who is over all things on earth and in heaven above.

I went to the scriptures today and Ecclesiastes chapters 1-3 spoke volumes to me. Such comfort in God's word knowing there is nothing new under the sun and that the pursuit of anything in life other than Him is like chasing the wind....all vanity. I found such comfort knowing Solomon sought some of the answers in life that Ihave been seeking. I found the same answers as he did and I feel hugged. Imagine that. HA!

GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF ME and my family and all of those whom I love.

I realize this post is vague but it is not pointless. It is a call for prayer. Please, no matter what your faith, no matter what you do when you feel heavy hearted for someone, take that burden and release it to GOD! I am writing this to work out my thoughts and to send out a request for prayer to any and all who pray to God.

I BELIVE IN PRAYER

I BELIVE GOD HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYER


I am still true to who I am and I refuse to walk in darkness. When I walk away from this computer, I WILL BE PRAISING GOD! I will walk with my head up in VICTORY and not in defeat. Yes, I have cried, I have poured out my heart to the Lord. But it is time to BELIEVE the answers will come by FAITH! Now, I want you to finish reading this with a SMILE! I love you all and appreciate your prayers for me. TRUST GOD!

SMILE!!!
