God Has Ordered My Steps

Monday is a day that most people hate to see and I always wondered why. Is it because as they would say, Its blue Monday or is it because if anything bad is going to happen it will be on Monday. Why are Mondays traditionally bad? Well it seems this day out of the six other days  is when trouble begins. Monday is the beginning of a new week and I think the devil figures he should get an early start on wreaking people lives and causing confusion on this day. But to me Monday, is beautiful and wonderful. Why you may ask?Well it reminds me of the many victories I have won on Gods behalf. I figure if I can get through a day, a week and maybe another year, then I know that I can get through any storm , trail or tribulation, that the devil  has puts in my path. With God our Father by my side and his son Jesus watching over me there is nothing that can get in my way.I know in my heart that God will take care of me.
 Has it always been this way for me or have I always been so confident or brave? Well the answer to those questions is no. I have not always been so strong or faithful. I have had doubt and I have question God our Father, Why must I go through these, trails, tribulations, test, confusion, mess and struggles? I have also asked God, Why are people so mean, hateful, destructive, heartless and cruel. I have also asked him, Why do some  good people have to die and why do most bad or some evil people always seem to prosper? Then I have asked  God this very personnel questions,Why is it that the  people I love and  trust the most are the very ones causing me this pain?
 Answers to those questions have been revealed to me in very different ways. Some have been revealed to me through the Bible, others through sermons from my Pastor, then some were answered by my wise parents or friends. But the main questions were answered by God himself. It was explain to in a dream that most of my problems, bad situations ,troubles or pains were not because of anyone else and also it was because I did not listen to him. I did not heed God warnings and I did not walk into those open doors that he provided me with. I let  fear or doubt keep me from escaping my troubles and I also let them keep me from being blessed. Instead of listening to God I chose to instead listen to man. When I should have just trusted God, then walked by faith and not by sight. That way I would have been blessed sooner, rather than latter. It was all my fault and now that I know the reason why ,I have changed .I learn from those storms,trials and tribulations.  Also by God allowing me to go through those things have only made me stronger.Now when the next  storm  heads my way, I do not fear it, because I know that I can get through it some how! I fear Mondays no more, even relish them and  then look forward to them. I am grateful for my bad situations because I know they only  make me stronger and have me better prepared for the future. I also know that going through them, I can learn how to avoid new ones and also I can help others avoid them too. I can give advice to my children, friend's or family, then become a blessing to them and others. I realized that without God, I wouldn't have been able to make it  through those storms. I also realize that, if  had just listen and practice a little faith those storms that  I went through, could have been avoided. Some storms that people go through is just another step or chapter in a person life. If you happen to be blessed enough to read this journal, just know this that God has ordered your steps and its already written or done.
Have a wonderful Monday,
2 Corinthians 1:24
Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.

Romans 11:20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear;
