For those of you who are in a season of waiting, in a dry and thirsty place, in a place where you are just “DONE” with it all, be encouraged that God sees you, Loves you so very much, and is not through with you. Sometimes it feels as if He has forgotten you, as if he cares more about “them” then he does you, but remember “feelings” are fickle, do not let them guide you but let Him (and His word) do so instead. Do what God is leading you to do, and you will see the JOY return (remember it IS your strength).
Take your eyes off your situation (yes I know it sucks, but nothing will change unless you make a decision to focus on what the Bible calls you too), and put your eyes on God, and I promise you will begin to see change. You were not designed to carry your burden; that is why when you do you feel so weighed down, so “depressed” so unable to go on. Give it to God (really give it to him) and watch him make a path through that desert you have been in for far too long. Then breath in deeply and lift up your head and see how good He is!!
Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed – that exhilarating finish in and with God – he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. – Hebrews 12:2 (MSG)
If things seem hard, if it feels as if you are constantly having to push to get anything accomplished, it might be because you are looking at your bolder of a problem not God.
God is wanting to lead you safely through not only this present difficulty but also this life.
But He cannot do so if you refuse to let Him lead.
He is saying to you
Let Me Lead
Do Not Fear
I Will Bring You Through This
Grab A Hold Of My Hand
Keep Your Eyes On Me
I Will Bring You Through
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
One month from today will mark the 7th anniversary of when my beautiful girl was brutally attacked by an unknown intruder. I remember the first week she hid the 37 stitches in her neck behind a scarf. But then she took it off and said “I will not hide, this is who I am now and its ok.” I have been so amazed at her ability to rise above her circumstances and continue on, She has worked hard to get in a position of being able to study in a foreign land but visa fees and others expenses may keep her from going. Please consider praying for Megan to get the funds to go to Scotland, or sharing this link, or possible giving towards it. Thanks you and God Bless!!
