Have you ever had a time in your life, even just a day in your life, where all these negative emotions were bombarding you all at once? Have you ever felt that everything was against you? No matter how hard you try, something always knocks your legs out from under you?
At times I feel like these things are my forever companions.
Everyday chaos of life. Bad news. Tragedy. Trials.
There are so many things in life just waiting to give you a good punch in the gut. To grab you by the ankles and pull you under just when you get your head above water. You are fine one minute, the next you are drowning in the burdens of life.
Often times these feelings, these emotions are screaming so loudly in my ear, they almost drown out God’s voice of comfort and peace. If I allow the problems of life to take over, it’s very easy to think God isn’t there. After all, I can’t hear Him with all in my life that’s pulling me in every direction, screaming…
YOU’LL NEVER MAKE IT!
YOU CAN’T TAKE ANYMORE!
HOW WILL YOU EVER SURVIVE THIS?
YOU HAVE TO FIX THIS!
THINGS WILL NEVER GET BETTER.
YOU ARE DEFEATED.
The Bible tells us…..Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10)
Stop thinking about your problems.
Stop letting anxiety overtake you.
Just be still.
Meditate on Him.
He is God. Nothing you face in life is too big, too hard for Him. And He will carry you through it. When life threatens to overtake you, consume you with pain and worry, seek Him. The Bible is full of promises. Promises of love, comfort, and peace. Even amidst the trials.
Take your fear, your worry, your problems….and lay them at His feet.
Take those promises and claim them.
Stop listening to the screams.
He is there. To love you when you feel unloved.
He is there. With the strength you need to overcome.
He is there. To help you in your time of need.
He is there. When your heart is breaking.
He is there. Whispering…..
I love you. You CAN do this. You WILL get through this. There is hope. I will give you peace.
Be still. And hear His voice.
