Dear Brides, we are have been invited to live an abundant life. We will always face trials, but how we face them will make the difference. With our Lord everything is possible. So, dear Brides, do not forget that this journey is a lifetime journey. We are here to learn that with the Lord we have every everything. No matter how difficult the trials may be, we have to trust our Lord. Sometimes we may not be understood. Perhaps Christian people will tell you that you are wrong. That you are a fanatic. Be happy when people call you crazy when trusting the Lord. He will do amazing things with you.
I’d encourage you to read this bookFinding the Abundant Life to understand that the Lord just wants you to shape you into HIs image. To be content, no matter what happens in your life. After reading Chapter 14 “You’re All that Matters”3 or more times, my favorite verse is. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
HE has taught me two things that `have caught my attention.’ First, we do not have to envy other women’s husbands because we don’t have ours. Well, that is part of one of the tenth commandments, so if we do it we are wrong, but we tend to compare our husbands with others. I believe that’s when we know we need more personal growth. We should try to trust the Lord in everything. No matter what happens to us we should be at peace with HIm. That is why He tells us in HIs word 365 times: Do not be afraid. I have to learn to trust Him. Since I began this journey I feel more relaxed. I see how many women around me, who are Christian, are so afraid of everything. I always invite them to trust the Lord.

Now I have to learn to trust Him. Since I began this journey I feel more relaxed. I see how many women around me, who are Christian, are so afraid of everything. I always invite them to trust the Lord. But I used to be like them. It was the desire of my heart to learn how to live a life without fears. And what did He do?? He removed my husband from my life. Now I am so thankful for that episode in my life, though it was hard at the beginning. Now, I am learning to live a fearless life!
Pray with me…Dear Lord, thank you for being by my side, helping me to live free every day. You are my everything. No evil will prosper against me. What should I be afraid of? Nothing. Help me to live this principle, and to show the rest how real You are in my life.

Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
