I trust God.I am not afraid. What can mortals do to me? Psalm 56:11 GWT
There are days that I just want to pull the comforter over my head and keep sleeping. But my FitBit just keeps vibrating … and by the time I locate that spot on my wrist, I have resolved that it is time to just rise. Maybe not ready to shine. But rise is good enough.
When life just seems so overwhelming and out of control (maybe I should say ‘out of MY control’), I need reminders that the Lord has me covered. So the Comforter that I truly want to keep all around me is more powerful than the mere shield of cotton and down feathers. The Holy Spirit is my Comforter and leads me unto all Truth.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26 KJV
The Truth of the matter is that if I am genuinely abiding in the Will of GOD, man has no grip on me.
Sure there are circumstances that may appear on the surface to overshadow my thoughts and challenge my inner spirit. These distractions will do their best to derail me from what I know to be true.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 ESV
This day I am thankful that I can lean into the GOD of all Creation, the One Who holds it all in His Hand. The One Who spoke it all into existence. The One Who determined what was, determines what is, and has decided on what will be.
My confidence is not merely in the knowing He is in control of the very air I breathe and my next heartbeat. But in knowing Him personally. The sheer joy of knowing Him and that He is here (in real time) in me — with me. The all powerful Lord Who lovingly designed me to have relationship with Him. And that was always His Plan.
You are all around me-in front of me and in back of me. You lay your hand on me. Psalm 139:5 GWT
At the end of the day, Sister, I may still have to look at those same issues tomorrow. Their faces may not simply disappear because I choose to live by faith.
But I have hope. Do you?
This Journey called ‘life’ is filled with the challenges that will s-t-r-e-t-c-h you to the point of wanting to hide. But don’t lose the hope that GOD freely gives you — if you know Him as His Child. As one of His Own, you have the confidence to turn your messes over to GOD and He will transform them into miracles.
I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~
