He is still God!

For this moment I prayed....

Two years ago my journey on this path called Life took a turn.  I took a step in Faith and God blessed with an answer to a prayer long prayed.  I cannot even begin to remember how long I prayed for this Love called Husband who entered my life that day.  For him, I am truly blessed and thankful.
At that moment, another prayer was born in my heart for hurts he had suffered and wounds that still needed healing.  There were relationships that were broken and only God could mend.
Today marks the beginning of the answer to that prayer....
Years ago I prayed a prayer very specifically and God answered my prayer and later I regretted asking.  Today I still regret asking.  In this I have learned, God knows best!  He is God and He alone can see around the corner and over the mountain.  He alone knows what lies ahead.  He alone can see into the heart of man and woman.  He alone knows the free will choice another will make.  He is God!
This prayer that began two years ago...was not specific because I did not begin to know what the answer would look like.  I did not begin to know what it would take. 
I am often scared and then I realize I have let the enemy invade my thoughts. God is still God!
I participated in a Beth Moore bible study several years ago and took away several thoughts that I often repeat to myself in these moments....
God is who HE says HE is.
God can do what HE says HE can do.
I am who HE says I am.
I can do all things through Christ.
God's Word is alive and active in me.
I am believing God!
Those may not be the exact way the words were stated in that study; however, they are powerful to me in this way when I encounter these moments.
In this beginning to an answer to my prayer that I am praying...
I am believing God is who HE says HE is...God Almighty, the Holy One, Omnipotent Father, Refuge, Redeemer, Shield...
I am believing God can do what HE says HE can do....mend the broken hearted, give rest to the weary, bring home the wandering child...
I am who HE says I am....HIS child, Joint Heir with Jesus....
I can do all things through Christ...endure this moment of pain and heartache and see the victory on the other side...continue to walk in faith and trust KNOWING HE has this under control...
God's Word is alive and active in me as I walk this path in FAITH with head held high trusting in the moments and not doubting or living in defeat.
I am beliving God and claiming HIS promises...HE will never leave me nor forsake me...HE will hear and answer my prayers...HE is Jehovah Jireh...the GOD who provides...Jehovah Rapha the God who heals....The Lord Almighty who saves, heals, protects, delivers...HE is GOD!!!
Awed by HIS mercy and grace,
