Trust God in Life

I'm confused. I don't know what to do. I fear going forward...I'm determined not to fall back. I close my eyes to try and block what I see only to find out that the images in my head are just as clear as the ones I truly see. I try to harden my heart to the emotions I'm feeling, but only to find it's no use.
The only thing I can do is trust in God. He holds my future. I don't see nor do I understand what my future holds, but God does. And for that I'm thankful.
I'm tired. I'm always "on the go". I want to stop and just give up, but I must run with endurance the race that is set before me. If I stop I will loose and fall. I have to plug along even though it's hard.
So what if I'm confused? So what if I'm tired" So what if I feel I can't go on? I'm an overcomer! I put my trust in Jesus. I have lived most of my life for myself and my own selfish ambitions. I will live whatever life I have left for God. He's all I need. He's all I should ever want...

Does that sound familiar to you? Do you ever feel that when it gets to hard that you want to quit?
I know that sometimes life gets hard. Sometimes you may feel like you want to just give up. DON'T. When things get hard, trust in God. When you're confused, trust in God. When you're tired, trust in God, and He will carry you through.
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your pathes straight."

Christian Youth In Action (CYIA)

Hey you guys!
I'm sorry it's been so long since I've been able to get on here and update my blog. I've been extremely busy. This summer God's given me the opportunity to teach 5-day clubs (similar to a VBS) all over Oklahoma. I'll be working all summer with Christian Youth In Action (CYIA) which is also called Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) So far this summer 22 children have accepted Jesus as their Savior in the clubs that I have tought in. This week I'm teaching 2 clubs a day. Please pray that I'll have the right words to say to the children in the clubs, and that their hearts would be open to hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thanks!!
I actually have a blog post written out on paper that talks about growing in Christ...I just haven't had the time to write it out yet. So as soon as I am able I will do that. =) God bless you guys and take care!
