Trusting God When Times are Hard

                                                  Hello to all my wonderful readers!

The past 6 weeks have been such a test for me, a test of my trust in God that no matter how uncertain everything may seem in my eyes that in His eyes it is exactly what He had planned for me. My baby girl was born on December 11th with very bad Acid Reflux and it literally had me to the point of desperation. I just wanted her better and I was doing all I could all the while in prayer for God to intervene. She is doing so much better and even though she has moments where she is still spitting up it isn't as bad. She had lost down from 8lbs 2ozs to 7lbs in 2 weeks but after a month of AR formula she is 9lbs and 6ozs. It killed me to know I had to cease breastfeeding but when it was in the best interest of my baby, God held me through it. I am a firm believer in breast is best but my production was as plentiful as needed and it had me on edge and my nerves were shot. 

After that trial another one hit, After months of my husband being unemployed, he got called to work about 3 hours from home which means he has to be gone for weeks and maybe months at a time. I'm happy he has found a job because in this economy it's very hard but it is hard for me because I hate being away from him. God opened a door for us to get a travel trailer so we will be able to go visit days at a time and won't have to spend tons of money on hotel rooms. It always seems that even when we become undone and worried God is there to comfort us and let us know He has it under control. 

I never once let my trust fail in God, even when it seemed I was at my breaking point God was there for me. Isn't it wonderful to have a Savior that cares for us even when we are undeserving and don't feel worthy of His love and mercy? I want to encourage you, if you feel like you are at your wits-end and feel like you can't take any more just hit your knees and let God comfort you and lead you in the right direction. His answers may not be what we think is best and it may not come when we want it but it's always in His perfect timing. 

When things get rough how has God guided you? What are somethings that God worked out for you when you just couldn't see answers?

Be Blessed,

Focusing on God's Word

               It's a new year and this year we need to focus more on God than our problems.

 We need to read His word and dig deep into the scriptures and put our worrying aside. We need to replace our worrying and anxiety with prayer and fasting. If we would trust God and really put our focus on Him more than we ever have before, then and only then could we see things change like never before. When we feel like life has let us down and we can't go no more, we need to fall to our knees and let God hold us and work everything out.  

This year I am doing more devotionals and devoting more time to prayer instead of wasting time with things that will not help my life but only complicate it more. I am participating more in HelloMornings and GoodMorningGirls than I did last year and reading my devotionals and bible more. Our church is also doing the Daily B.R.E.A.D. readings. I want to encourage you to find time to dig into God's Word and sincerely put your focus on God. In 2014 let's put more focus on God and His Word than on Social Media and let Him give us encouragement and guidance.

What plans are you using this year? How are you making more time for God?

Be Blessed,

Happy 2014!

                                                   May you all have a great 2014!

I hope all of you had a great holiday season! I'm sorry I haven't been here much, We had our baby girl December 11th and things have been crazy. I am going to try to spend more time here this year and really rededicate myself. I really appreciate you all for being apart of this community. I'm asking you to reach out this year and let me know who you are and what you like about this blog. If there is anything you would like for me to talk on this year please feel free to let me know. I want to help and would love to hear from you.

What are your new year resolutions and what do you want to do more of this year? I hope you put God first and let Him lead you in all you do. I have learned in the last 2 months that even when you have faith and you have been praying and seeking God, that you still can feel faithless at times of trouble. We have had some major faith building trials in the last few weeks. So I want you to know that even though you may feel weak at time and feel there is no hope, Call out to Jesus and let Him hold you through your trials. He already knows the ending and He will help you prepare for it. Prayer can change any situation!

What are somethings that has really helped build your faith in 2013 that can help you have a better 2014?

Be Blessed,

Regina Cozad
