Trust God



No matter what it looks like, trust God.
No matter how long you have been waiting, trust God.
No matter if you have your doubts, trust God.

You may say, "Is that not "blind faith," to trust when nothing seems to be happening or going my way, or when it seems that God is not listening to you? Yes, it is faith, but it is not "blind faith." We can trust that God is sovereign, He promises to work all things out for our good, and He does hear the prayers of the righteous.

If you have been holding on for a very long time to delayed answers in prayer, or disappointing outcomes, don't give up just yet! God wants to turn your tears into laughter, and your grief to joy. He desires to bring redemption and restoration to you. You may feel like you have waited so long and been disappointed so many times, that you cannot bear to go through anymore. Trust God. He has waited all this time for things to align and to be ready. It was not time before. Give God another opportunity to show you that His ways are higher than your ways, and His timing is perfect.

Watch and see the mercy and goodness of the Lord. It is time. Everything you have "planted" over the years, will start to burst forth and grow. This is a time of growth and acceleration. God is good, and He desires to be good to you! Don't live in the past, or in past regrets. Shake off the dust and move onto your new season. Get up again, and believe again. Shake off the past, and the past failures, past shame, and past guilt. Today is a new day. New beginnings.

Counselor's Corner: Overcoming the Fear of Failure

Fear of failure occurs when you have tried to accomplish a goal or a task and either had setbacks, delays or no progress at all. Usually the fear of failure does not happen the first attempt at a desired outcome but afterrepeated attempts to achieve your dream or destiny.



Failure is mostly based on your perception, in other words, if you keep trying after not succeeding do you give up or keep trying? If you perceive that you are a failure and whatever you do will fail, you will not keep trying. If you believe that failure only occurs if you stop trying than you likely will continue to pursue your dreams.


I had great ambitions to become a published author. I set out on my mission to publish my first book, and I did several years ago. The problem is that even though I did have my book published, the sales of that book only covered the expenses of what I paid the publisher.
