This week started out a little rough for me. (Thank God for my “Solid as a Rock” husband for always being my sounding board and voice of reason.) I’d been hit with a few things in my personal life that have left me a bit hurt, doubtful, and questioning some of my abilities. I am not usually the one to share my DEEP thoughts, but I did reach out to my Aunt Gena this week about some things I was feeling. I really didn’t go into huge detail with her, but she is probably one of the only people I have that could relate on this specific concern. She reassured me that I wasn’t alone, and even went so far as to check up on me later in the week to provide affirmation as to why I am “CHOSEN.” I am getting a little choked up now, just thinking about it. Thanks, Gena! It means a lot.
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
I am going to continue to stay in prayer…
Psalm 17:6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
I was doing a little Bible research, and the below scriptures just spoke to me.
Exodus 14:14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.
1 Thessalonians 4:11 And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you.
I just have to say, my BELIEF has never waivered, and my FAITH has always been strong. We often get in our own way, or better yet, God’s way, when it comes to “handling” things. In the scripture, Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” That’s it! He… Is… God! Let Him have it! I am guilty of holding on to it, and not handing it over to Him. But here I am now, Lord. Outstretched arms. Giving it to you.
Is there something that you are struggling with? Do you have someone that you can relate directly to? It’s also a good idea to surround yourself with good Christian folks. Especially for those instances when you forget to just be still. Be Blessed, Friends!
