Hi and welcome to Patavodah!
I am Patience Lancelot. Thank you for being here.
I am married to one male husband, and we are blessed with two beautiful children who we home school. God is awesome, and I love Him very much. I love Him for His love, faithfulness, and the gift of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross.
At Patavodah, I share this love of God with you so that you too can trust Him at all times; and enjoy a relationship with Him as the Trinity. When you trust God, you find peace and live a more fulfilled life.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” How cool is that—for God to direct your paths?
I understand that some things feel too heavy for us to bear, but when we trust God, then “…we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
Appreciating this truth makes all things bearable because then we know that God has got our backs no matter what He allows to happen. Psalm 139:17 tells us that God has got precious thoughts unto us. It says that the sum of those precious thoughts is great. Wow!
My trick for not losing trust in God, especially when I don’t understand what is going on, is to have a praise or worship song, scripture, and testimony that I go to for encouragement. When I focus on those, by God’s grace, I manage to go through tough times. Almost all the time, I have emerged on the other side stronger than before.
If you want to enjoy a relationship with God but have no idea where to begin, you can START HERE.
