Rock, Refuge, Peace, and Trust



I love when God says things over and over. Sometimes I do wonder if it's because I'm not listening so He has to repeat Himself.

Regardless, over and over I see and pick up on the words rock, refuge, peace, and trust.

If you go back to the last couple of years posts you'll see several on 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 paths straight."


The Lord's really been bringing home what this message means for me. I'm a bit of a controller. (ahem-as most women are ;) ) Trying to figure out how things are going to work out gives me a false sense of control.

Because when things DON'T work out the way I think they will, well... it usually leaves me feeling distraught as to how I could have been so wrong.

Over and over God says STOP TRYING TO FIGURE OUT ALL THE THINGS AND TRUST ME, ALECIA.

This is hard for me :/

Life turns upside down and all I want is some sense of control and normalcy.

So not only do I still see my favorite verse in Proverbs regularly but God's been showing me more verses to lean in to such as Psalm 91:2, Psalm 34, Psalm 46:1 ...

And every single one has brought peace to my soul. As I read and pray over the verses I lean into His spirit and listen.

Some God whispers I've heard recently:

Trust the Process

I alone am your refuge. Not man, money or anything or anyone else.

Let me love and protect you.

I'm working all things out for your good.

This season is a season of being still and waiting. I'm doing a deep soul-work, and soul work takes time.

Life's a crockpot, not an insta-pot. (this one may be more of my own musings then God's ;) )

I'm hiding you, protecting you, and healing you until I know you are ready to come out. In Me you are safe.

Apply the blood of the cross to your life. Apply your faith.

I love how God speaks to His children to let them know they are loved and never alone.

When I intentionally look for Him I "see" Him everywhere.

And the grip that I've had begins to loosen out of my control and into His, right where it belongs.
