His Promise To You

I spent most of today just sat at my desk staring, wondering what to write here.

I have the ideas.
I was originally going to pose a new link-up idea to you all, but I'm not feeling it. Then there is always that recipe for mocha brownie bites I keep meaning to post, but that isn't it either.
I feel like there is something God wants me to say to you today sweet friend, but I'm not sure how to say it.

Yesterday was special for me, I felt something. Things happened yesterday that I couldn't have foreseen  but someone did; God.
I woke up, made 'proper' coffee, sat with my bible and read. Then listened to Moriah Peters whilst writing a blog post. In the afternoon Mum, Matt and I took the dog for a long walk. The evening ended with dad and I going out for a meal and a show.
All that sounds like a pretty packed and wonderful day. It was. The most wonderful thing about it though was that I couldn't stop smiling.

You all know how turbulent things have been for me over the past 18 months, and its been a long time since I genuinely smiled for no reason. Well yesterday, whilst listening to music and writing for you here I did. I smiled that genuine, infectious, hurts your cheeks kind of smile. During the walk I saw the beauty in everything, I mean EVERYTHING. I felt like someone had turned a light on in my world, lifted all the weight off my shoulders and allowed to to step into my future.

All this was amazing, but I didn't know why it had happened.

That is until this morning.

I was laid reading my Woman Alive magazine and came across the article 'God's Promise When We Commit'.

That's when I realised that things aren't happening in my life because I was taking the weight of the worry, and that is not meant for me. I needed to hand everything over to God and trust in his promise that his judgement and authority in my life is beautiful and true.

I hope you take something away from my story today sweet friend. I want to see that infectious smile spread across your face when you give all your worries to God.

I urge you beautiful girl to put everything into his hands. It really doesn't matter how big or small it is, he wants it all. You are so blessed to have his love. 
Be true to the Lord, and make sure everything you do is for him. 

Thank him for the amazing events and people he is putting in your life, you may not even know what these are yet, but trust me they are there.

Have a blessed day sweet friends.
God is good.
