? Do you feel you need defended at this time or any time, do you feel you are battling alone?
Yes when am battling with decisions and people seem to think am not capable or am handling the situation wrong.
? Have you conceded & do you trust that the LORD sees to the bottom of our hearts & the hearts of others?
Yes i do at times but when He takes long to answer i feel desperate and at times i do not wait to hear from Him or i go consulting others instead of asking Him first. But am learning to talk to Him first
? If you believe that He is the Ultimate Judge, do you trust that He will uphold you?
Yes i know He will uphold me and when He promises me anything He will fulfill.
? Jesus calls us to forgive (those who trespass against us). Have you forgiven your enemies and if not, what seems to be the barrier disabling you to forgive?
I have forgiven them but i do have instances that i recall the past and it all feels fresh and it really hurts. Am learning to ask God to help me forgive and forget it all.
"Search me, O God, and know my heart:
Test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

do you believe total surrender (to Him) would mean?
It would be that i leave everything to Him no matter what the situation is. It would also mean that i will not be anxious for anything because He tells me in His Word cast your burdens unto Jesus for He cares for you.
? Do you consider and seek counsel from Him at ALL times?
Yes i have learned to do that lately and i must say its good.
? Write out an example of God?s mercy displayed in your life, recently.
I was going to take my son to high school form 1 and i did not have money for shopping. My prayer was that He would provide the finances to do just that. In the most unexpected way He sent someone to help with fiances and He provided more than i could ever imagine.
? Write out your acknowledgment of God?s presence in your life today.
I acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in my life and especially this year where God is working daily in my life. Am grateful that He has been teaching me something new each day and i look forward to hear His leading in all that i do. Glory to God
(I would strongly encourage that you share these with a friend, someone within the church or our forum. Wherever you feel most comfortable. But nonetheless, do share. He is glorified when we share His good working in our lives and a greater sense of gratitude may be developed by doing so.
