Faith Walking

walk-by-faith

Life has been crazy and I haven’t sat down to write in awhile. I have been thinking daily about it though. Every time I get an idea to write, I make a mental note but miss that moment when I am most excited about it. So, here I am back at it. The ministry is coming along,https://msinop1.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/marty-sinopoli-ministries/ hoping to have all the paper work finished for the 501 c-3 done by this week, then just the wait. My daughter Gabby who was diagnosed with Perthes disease,https://msinop1.wordpress.com/2014/03/31/another-layer/  just diagnosed with it in her other hip, bummer BUT my God is bigger than any of our earthly circumstances so I am putting it in His hands. My other daughter just turned 12 years old, and she is growing into a beautiful young woman, but nevertheless embarking on the hardest years of a girls life.

My spiritual life is well and God has been showing me and leading me through refining since the store closed. It is a time of testing and truly trusting the Lord alone. It is scary but is yielding good fruit.

Money is always an issue. Although Gino has a good job, we are still spread thin and debt looming over head from our former venture of GiGi’s. I am trusting that the Lord is going to work it out in His time in His way, But, I won’t deny that the furnace is getting hot. Gino is learning to trust my instinct and ability to hear God. Also, I believe it is a call to him and his life as well. I had a thought a few weeks back while getting ready one morning that God had big plans for Gino and that Gino’s faith would grow strong. I am waiting for that deliverance and am excited for that time in our lives of believing together.

I am still counseling with Center of Hope and truly love that role. I have met some amazing clients and have established lasting relationships.

I will continue to Walk in Faith to what God is calling me to do.

God put a million, million doors in the world
For his love to walk through
One of those doors is you- Jason Gray

Worthy of Trust

in-god-we-trustWho can you trust anymore? In 2013 Trust has almost been completely depleted in every area.
My friend Marlana and I were having our morning talk and coffee as we discussed our weekends and how we were feeling spiritually. I was telling her how I had been convicted over the weekend as to my prayer life that it was lacking. Two weeks prior she had given me a book called Psalm 91 By: Peggy Joyce Ruth. I hadn’t read it yet, but over the weekend I picked it up and started to read it. The entire book which is 168 Pages is on that one Psalm. I told Marlana how I was reading it and how God promises us thru Jesus Christ all the power and authority through Christ it is up to us just like salvation, to accept it and apply it, and also to believe and trust that nothing that God says comes back void. Luke 21: 31-32

32Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
I said to her I have to learn to trust him with EVERYTHING which seems so un natural, but EVERYTHING down to asking him to bless the meal I am about to eat, and praising him in all that he has afforded me, the bed I sleep in, good health, clean water, clothes on my back.

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

She replied to that well that’s the core of every relationship, “TRUST”. A child trusts his or her parents, a husband and wife are to trust each other. Relationships are defined by trust. This is certainly something I know, but it hit me in a way I hadn’t thought about before. My relationship with God. He wants us to trust him, just as we want our spouses and children to trust us. How can we have a good relationship with God if we are always afraid of the things of this world? When we need something? I would feel horrible as a parent if my kids were always having anxiety over the next meal and every other thing that came up in their day. We as parents are there to take care of them, keep them safe, make sure they’re needs are being met.

That is God to us. Yet we are always having anxiety, trying to figure things out, what are we going to do next in our marriage, careers, solving money problems. We are not communing with him for everything. He’s not bothered by our needs, just as we are not bothered with the needs of our children. I often tell my girls that they can tell me anything, that I am always there to guide them with decisions about school, friends etc.

Our relationship with God is built on trust. A beautiful golden nugget hiding in plain sight.

I pray to the Lord that no one hears these words at the second coming

Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.

He wants a TRUSTING RELATIONSHIP with us. Are we only doing the deeds? Working the Church picnic’s? Wearing a cross on a bracelet, or a necklace? A picture of the Last supper in our home? Not that those things are bad they are not they are wonderful, but only if you have a rich, trusting, loving, relationship. Does he know you? Personally? Have you spent time with him? Today is the day to start. So on that day he will see you and be delighted to be together with you. One who has sought him in everything, good, bad and indifferent.
