It creeps up on me like a long lost friend…
“I’m good,” I tell myself, “I got this”… I even thank God for His peace and whisper to Him that I trust Him, and need Him…
Then from the depths of my fears… I start to acknowledge a voice I somehow think I should..
I feel anxious, rushed.. I feel myself start to obsess and worry. I begin to condemn my thoughts, but discouragement and fear have begun to settle in…
That voice is not my friend..
That voice turns my peace into confusion.. My hope into dismay…
That is the voice of my enemy..
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for calling my name. Thank You that I don’t have to listen or give credence to the voice of despair. Thank You that because of Your great love for me, I can simply look away…
” I lift up my eyes to the hills where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip. He who watches over you will not slumber…”
Psalm 121: 1-3
Yours, Oh Lord, is the voice of comfort. and peace that transcends all understanding..
As I come before You, Father, I lay my fears, and worries down, I thank You that when I come before You, I know I can trust You with my heart..
I know that it is Your desire that I be filled with Your hope. Your goodness..
Your gentleness and spirit..
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again; Rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus..”
Philippians 4: 7
Your sweet voice calms and stills my spirit..
You fill me with Your goodness and grace bringing light to my eyes and hope to my soul..
For that I am so very grateful. So today, Heavenly Father, I turn my eyes to You. I turn away from the voice of despair and put my heart back in Your hands..
Thank You so much for Your truth. Your Hope. And Your goodness..
Help me to forgive. Help me to love. Help me to draw other’s into Your glorious light of goodness and grace..
Help me to live a life of love…
I choose You…
In Jesus Name, I pray..
Live in Love,
“The Lord will keep you from all harm. He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
Psalm 121: 7
Thank You, Lord, for Your great protection…
Have a happy day!
