Dans la tempête je reste sereine!

Seigneur je te remercie
Tu me donnes la paix même dans la tempête.
Pour mon nouvel appartement les choses vont à l'envers.
Ai-je oublié que tu es au contrôle?

Tu vois tout ce qui doit arriver.
Tu me protège.
Merci Seigneur.
Si tu ne veux pas que j'habite là-bas.
Tu fermeras cette porte et tu en ouvriras une autre.

Oui dans la tempête je serai sereine.
Car ma vie est dans ta main.
L'inquiétude blanchit mes cheveux et mes cils.
Dix ans de plus gravés sur mon visage.
En l'espace de quatre ans.

Mais tu es avec moi.
Même si suis je compressée,
Telle une voiture au lavage.
Je sais que tu es là.
Alors pourquoi m'inquiéter?

 Matthieu 6: 34 "Ne vous inquiétez donc pas du lendemain; car le lendemain aura soin de lui-même. A chaque jour suffit sa peine." - version Louis Segond

Merci Seigneur.
D'ouvrir et fermer les portes.
Gloire à ton nom.

On June 7, 2016 - I had a seminary at my church. The theme was 'how to hear from God". We read several passages of the Bible where God spoke to people. He did so with an audible voice, through prophets, angels, people, thoughts and scriptures. The following morning, I was reading the Gospel of John. I usually go back to this book to get more revelations about God's love for me. I read my French Bible when a question popped up in my mind. "Do you trust Jesus?" I answered yes. Another question immediately came. "Do you trust Jesus?" I was like what? I didn't know what to think. I hesitantly answered "yes... I guess?" Then, the last question flashed in my mind. This question robbed me from my confidence. It made me question my faith too. Another “do you trust Jesus?” My heart sank. I know that the Holy Spirit showed me the condition of my heart: I didn't trust Him. I thought He asked the question about my sentimental life. I was sadden by my lack of trust in Jesus in this area of my life. 

The day after, I called the caretaker of the new apartment that I plan to move in. (See article: God's wink - April 27, 2016). I remember that she told me that the current tenant would leave on June 10, 2016. So, I’d have plenty of time to organize my moving. I talked to the Caretaker on the phone. She told me that she didn’t know when the Tenant would leave. What?!! It not what you said on April 27 during the visit!  I was shocked! On May, my uncle told me to pray earnestly about the apartment. I said yeah yeah… but I didn’t take him seriously. « Night and day we pray earnestly for you » 1 Thessalonians 1:10

Now, I was in trouble!! Only 2 weeks left before moving out. But I don’t know when?! The caretaker told me to call her on June 27, 2016 to know the next steps. Really? Someone else already rented my apartment for July 1st. I have to leave beforehand. What should I do? I went to the agency two times but no one gave me a date for my moving. It’s a mess. It was so annoying! I’ll go back there on Monday if God wants. 

“Do you trust Jesus?” Yes, Lord. I trust you. I understand your question, now. I know that you’d working something good out of this messy situation. I trust you that I’ll get the keys on June 27. And I’ll move in the new apartment on June 29, 2016. “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation."
Thank you Jesus! I trust You!

Singleness… Thank you Jesus!

Abba Father, I would like to thank you for my singleness.
Yes, I am single by your grace.
Sorry for all my complaints and threats.
Discouraged, I was angry with you!
I only saw a burden.
Instead of a temporal/eternal precious treasure.

Thank you Lord Jesus, 
Lover of my soul.
Serving You is my purpose.
Reason for my existence.
You are the most important.
I am focusing on you, no more distractions.

1 Corinthians 7:32-34 (New Life Translation) - “I want you to be free from the concerns of this life. An unmarried man can spend his time doing the Lord's work and thinking how to please him. But a married man has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife. His interests are divided. In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband.”

Our society solely value couples.
Many Christians despise being unmarried.
It is a shame, Lord!
And so unfair to demand a man.
To fulfill my every needs.
Holy Spirit take your place in my life.
You know my strong desires.
Fill me up with Your love.

Lord you walked on earth,
Thirty three years of singleness!
The Bible tells us your passion for the lost,
Damned since the beginning.
You knew the cost.
Without a single complaint…2000 years ago,
You accomplished your mission,
Your name still saves today

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.” John 3:16-18 (New International Version)

Who am I to complain?
Do I have an idea of Your plan for my life?
Yes, I trust You!
Lord, Jealous is Your name.
You don’t share your glory.
I am blessed to know You.

Luke 2:36-38 “And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years, having lived with her husband seven years from when she was a virgin, and then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.” (English Standard Version)

Thank you for Your perfect will in my life.
Thank you for being the Author of our love story.
Thank you for creating me.
Thank you for dearly loving me.
I love you too, Lord Jesus.
