Put your Hope in God
Public speaking has never been one of those things I enjoy doing. I usually get really nervous and if I find out at the last minute that I have to speak I may freak out and get frustrated if things aren’t going too well before.
I had that happen to me today.
God wants us to trust him and put our hope in him. When we do that we will not be put to shame. It is so easy for us to complain when things are not going our way yet it seems so hard for us to stop, pray and just put our hope in God. And though I did not deceive someone else, I think I deceived myself into thinking God was unable to help me. God is more than able to help.
Psalm 25:3 (NLT)
No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.
Our Lord works in wonderful ways and he definitely worked through my mother to calm me down and remind me that He is there for me and is willing to help if I ask and put my hope in Him.
You can probably figure out by now that everything turned out well in the end. Thanks be to God.
Whenever you find yourself in a tough situation and you think things are not going to work out, instead of tearing out your hair, try this instead: Stop, Pray and Put your Hope in God.
Peace and God Bless you!
