This week Im going to focus on situations and how God is in the middle of it all. There are test in one’s life that you must pass in order to move on to the next phrase of you life, its just that simple . Let me explain
I dont like or eat cheese period. I hate the smell of it. Years ago whenever I would go to a fast food resturant drive thru, I would order a hamburger w/o cheese, and no matter how many times I say no cheese, I would get home to find cheese on my food anyway. So one day I was at the drive thru, and I purposly told the lady no cheese at least 6 or more times. She promised me that she would check it herself. So when I got the food, my hamburger had cheese . I was outrage. I was so so upset. I think I lost it on her.
Then I sat there and thought about it. I said you know what? I know God is behind this. No way could I posibly say no cheese to that woman that many times and still get it anyway. I said satan wants me to get upset and go off, but God on the other hand is trying to tell me something. Lets see.
I thought about it. No matter how many times I tell the woman no cheese I would end up with it. I said Lord, this is a test. I know it I feel it. I said Lord, I know this is you, ( smile) I need to pass this test in order to move on. And the reason why I keep getting cheese on my sandwich is because I havent passed the test yet.
From that point on, when I got cheese on my hamburger, I didnt get upset. I kindly ask them to fix it. Today I can count on my hands how many times cheese has end up on my sandwich. Not many at all. I finally past the test. That does not make me angry any more.
Now that youve read my story, can you think on a time where you keep being in the same situation? Are you dating the same kind of men, are you still getting the same ole jobs, do you keep having a argument with someone all the time? Well ask yourself……………. Lord, what is it that you are trying to tell me. What is it that you want me to learn from all this?
Read this scripture for yourself. Read very very very slow.
Luke 12 (New International Version)
54 He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. 55 And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. 56 Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?
Aint that deep? Wow
Where works of the flesh exists, there is NO joy

I have experienced the same thing over and over again. Me being in the flesh not relizing that it’s GOD testing me I have failed over and over again….. I will admit I have improved in some areas but I am at work at hand that needs much improvement. I will keep this in mind the next time I faced with an issue.
I past that one, but I cant get pass this one Im going through now. PRay for me.
God was testing me in a particular situation that I just couldn’t figure out why it kept on happening. I was dating the same type of men ova and ova again. No matter how I imagined in my mind how different they would be from the past one but actually they were all the same. I was the common denominator though it wasn’t just them. I took on my responsiblity for what went wrong but I had to slow down and let God show me that there was apparently something in me that attracted these type of men. God opened my eyes to see, these men saw my vulnerbilities, my low self-esteem, how gulliable and trusting I was. I had to make a change for the better. I took some time to get closer with God and start loving and caring about me and seeing myself as God does. I starting depending more on Him instead of a man I knew wouldn’t stay. IT also taught me to put no trust in men but in Him!!!
