Like most folks, I’ve got a good deal of things on my schedule.
My thoughts this morning have centered on the needs and the requirements.
My emotions have been a bit ruffled.
Nothing traumatic, I’m just tired and feeling unable to walk into the day.
It’s not uncommon for me to feel tired, it just gets old.
But God has been reminding me that He is able.
I don’t have to feel energetic or “able to tackle the day”.
I just have to put my trust in Him and take the first step.
But before I got to the first step, I needed to open my heart to the Lord this morning.
I’m dealing with some fear and needed to tell the Lord about it and confess my wayward heart which wants to waste time in worry.
After some time the Lord directed me to a scripture.
I opened my Bible, but instead of reading was interrupted.
When I returned to my Bible and journal, I went back to praying, forgetting that I’d not read.
After a bit my heart was laid open to us both and my eyes turned to the open page.
Psalm 147:11 NKJV — The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.
God’s Word is the strength I need for my weariness.
God’s Truth is what I need for my frightened feelings.
God’s will is for me to walk through the tired and frightened moments, not in them.
And I love that.
He gives me exactly what I need.
His timing is perfect.
His Word is trustworthy.
He is so good!
Psalm 73:28 KJV — But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
