What’s on my heart today
When the day started and I opened my eyes from sleep that was so needed, immediately I felt a sense of dread. It didn’t take long to figure out why.
Life’s personal and financial stresses.
I just wanted to go back to sleep, but my mind was not going to have it. No……my mind wouldn’t stop thinking.
UGHHHHHHHH……. HERE COMES ANOTHER MIGRAINE/TENSION HEADACHE!
It didn’t matter how hard I would try to focus on other things. The moment I did, something would happen that would make it worse. You would think I’d be a complete mess by now. Nope, not even close. Actually I feel I just got a bit stronger than I was before. I’m still struggling with the stresses of life, but I take comfort in my faith that tells me God will never forsake me. He’s still here, by my side, holding me up, keeping me strong and making me stronger.
Sometimes I have heard others say “If God was real why would he let you go through the troubles you keep having in life.” I think everyone wants to have a protector that makes sure nothing bad will ever happen, but can you really imagine how life would be if everything was always perfect? I don’t believe it would be the best thing for any of us. Why? Think about that for a moment. I can list so many reasons why that would be more harmful than good.
2.) If we had everything and anything we ever wanted don’t you think we would start behaving like a spoiled child?
3.) If you didn’t have to worry about anything going wrong, what lesson would you ever learn, how would you grow?
I’m going to end my the list for now, even though I could keep going and going and going just like the Energizer bunny, but I have to say one last thing. I know that one day I will be in heaven and I will have the peace and rest that almost everyone longs to have, not because I wanted it, but because my faith in God has kept me strong so that I will have not only earned it, but I also deserve it.
Before I end this, I have to say “Thank you Lord Jesus for putting these words in my heart. I know that without you I am nothing, but the love you give me makes me feel like I’m everything I ever wanted to be. I give all the glory to you God and am so thankful for that.”
If you like this and want to share it with others, I think that would be so great. I believe that God lets us go through some things in life to help others who are going through something similar. Maybe there’s a very good reason for how I’ve felt today. Maybe someone’s feeling hopeless. Maybe someone else is on the brink of giving up. Who knows. Maybe just maybe this is God’s way of helping someone get through a day they couldn’t have otherwise. I know I definitely don’t that kind of power, but God does. Remember, the Lord works in mysterious ways.
“And we know that all things work together for good of those who love God: those who are called according to his purpose”
