TITLE: Is it Over Lord?
By Florien Deysel


Is it over Lord?

In the Beginning God created the heaven and the earth and all its fullness, in Ps 24.1 we read that the earth belongs to God. Therefore I trust in God and I know that He will take care of me. The Word of God is life and it brings forth life therefore I chose to speak life into every situation in my life. We read in Proverbs that death and life lies in the power of the tongue. I will speak life into every situation that troubles me.

Life begins with birth and ends with death. My life is in the hands of God but sometimes due to pure pressure I feel like taking things in my own hands. Then I have to remind myself that God is in control and He loves me enough to take care of me.

I live with pain everyday of my life, emotionally I was scared as a child and the pain of that scare is now manifesting in my body. I have days where I pray to die and days where I pray to live, still He keeps me alive. Why? Why do I have to live with all this pain and hurt?

I am receiving therapy from the most wonderful Dr in the world; he is an absolute honey and a child of God. I know God is in control and I know He can heal my body and my inner being and I am trusting God for a miracle in my life. In the meantime I am doing what I can.

The stress and tension of financial lack is also a huge burden on me and our business is not doing well. Thus, my question again, is it over Lord? Is this the beginning of the end for us? I am a child of God and I believe He loves me enough to care about me. But it doesn’t pay the bills, still I trust God and believe in Him and I know that nothing is impossible for Him.

The only thing that I need to convince myself of is; am I strong enough to follow through on this decision? Sometimes I am so weak and then I just break down and cry and I don’t have any faith left in me. I know I have to push through to receive the miracles I pray for and the breakthrough in our financial situation. But am I strong enough to push?

Today I feel that there is no hope for us, why should I keep on hoping and praying? Then the question comes up in my mind, is it the end of the road? Is it over for us? Who can answer all these questions for me? Who can tell me what is going to happen to us? Only God knows, but wouldn’t it be nice if I can have a sneak preview to prepare myself? The future is a mystery but to God it is known.

God is in control and even if this is the beginning of the end I still chose to serve God and trust in Him. No matter how difficult it is I will keep on trusting in God.

The emotions are very raw, and I was very touched by the faith, trust and love for God to carry us through all storms. God bless and thanks for sharing.
