Personally…

I have been struggling a bit.

Just not feeling super well.

Handsome’s work schedule has him either on nights or graveyard, and through the weekend, which isn’t bad, I’m just not adjusting to it quickly.

We’ve received some concerning news about people we love.

The suffering of fellow believers has been heavy upon my heart.

Yet, in the midst of these things God is so present.

His Word’s been so relevant each and every day.

I’ve found such peace in prayer and comfort in His promises.

My heart can surrender these burdens and I can rejoice in Him.

And He has answered prayers!

Praise the Lord!

His mighty works are such a blessing!

I find rest in His truth.

I need not strive.

I need not worry, simply bring Him my concerns, my limitations, and trust the outcome to His sovereignty.

For today belongs to Him.

Yesterday belongs to Him.

And I know He has tomorrow in hand as well.

Psalm 18:2 KJV — The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Psalm 34:22 KJV — The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your mercy and grace. Thank You for using these things in my life to encourage me to seek You more. Lord, thank You that I don’t need to know what is going to happen, I simply need to live for You in today and walk with You, listening carefully for Your still soft voice. I know You are guiding me through Your Word and I thank You for it. Lord, for all these prayer requests, these people in need, I humbly request You meet them where they are. Please provide and sustain them. Lord, let these things, these circumstances be used to bring glory and honor to Your name. Lord, our lives are not our own, they were bought with such a high price. Please let our lives be lived wholly unto You. Thank You Jesus for Your love. I love You. Amen.
