Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
One of my favorite things is church. I love it!! I love going to church, I love singing the songs, hearing my daddy preach, and I love being with my church family. It is amazing! One thing that I have learned in my life is that I need God with every, single, tiny, step I take. I have learned that some of those cheesy life quotes you hear is actually true.
When it seems like things are falling apart, that’s when things are actually falling into place. So often we forget that God knows all. He knows exactly what we are going through and knows just how much we can take. Sometimes it feels like there is far more on our plates than we could possibly be able to manage, but God knows what is there and he knows that you can handle every bit of it.
I have made it a point to go through my day with him. I will literally be folding the laundry and talking with him. I see something beautiful, I have started making the conscious effort to thank him for that. I have noticed that by doing that one simple thing, I have started noticing far more good things than seeing the bad things. I have noticed that I don’t focus as much on the bad things as I did in the past.
I love listening to Joyce Meyer, she is quite the pistol. I love that she is not afraid to tell you like it is. She talked one time about how we need to have God in every single aspect of our lives. Every aspect, with no exception. She even talked about being on the toilet and talking to God. At first, I thought she was a little eccentric on that statement. Then, I thought that surely she didn’t mean every tiny aspect of my life. Until, I was laying in bed one night having a rough time going to sleep. Her message started going through my mind.
Why on earth would I not have God in every aspect of my life? He’s already there! It’s not me asking God to come into every aspect of my life, it is more of me acknowledging him in every aspect of my life. He already knew I was going to have a problem with sleeping, why not acknowledge that? So, I started acknowledging God more. I started telling him that I know he is with me, I know that he knows what is going to happen in my life, and I know that no matter what, He will see me through. This has been something that I have been working on more recently. I have learned through past mistakes that I cannot handle everything on my own.
God is my Heavenly Father and like my earthly father did for me when I was growing up, He does for my spirit. I need reminding sometime that I am not capable to taking everything in and doing it completely on my own. I am merely a human, I make mistakes and I am by no means perfect. He is though, he can help me through anything. He gives me comfort when I am in pain. He gives me peace, when my life is everything but peaceful. He gives me joy, when my heart is despair.
I serve a God that loves me and will provide for my family and I. I praise him for it!
