I’m feeling a little low today. Lots going on in my life lately, some of it exhausting and troubling, some of it exciting and invigorating.
Truth be told, I am exhausted! When I get exhausted, I tend to put my “negative cap” on. I tend to look on the dark side of situations instead of searching out the bright side. That doesn’t make for a pleasant “me” for those who have to spend their days with me.
My sweet Lord spoke to me today. He told me that He knows I am weary, and He knows what is on my heart. He also reminded me to keep my head up. “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33).
The Lord assured me that He is here with me. He is walking my steps and sharing my troubles. He is RIGHT HERE. I am not alone in my journey.
He is within me, in the very depths of my heart. He may let me go through some things, to teach me and grow me. But He will never walk away.
He promises, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5). What a precious promise that is to me! What an awesome assurance to me that I will come through to the other side of these concerns.
My friends, do you have heaviness in your heart today?
Are you struggling through some emotions that are difficult to bear up under?
Please know that you are not alone. Your Savior is walking right beside you.
Take His hand and let him lead you through the valleys so that together you can stand on the mountaintop.
He is here, He is waiting, He wants to help you be an overcomer. Whatever is troubling you, whatever is holding you captive, give it to God and let God see you through.
He is right there…waiting.
