Such a simple statement, yet it’s also a very difficult truth to face. There are days when all feels right in my world, and there are days when it feels like everything is falling apart. I can’t fix the things that I want so badly to fix, and that’s hard for me to accept.
When I’m really struggling to find peace, there is Someone I can count on to uplift me and encourage me. My Saviour is never too busy to listen to me cry out the hurts of my heart. He knows the cause of every ache, and He supplies the comfort I crave for every pain.
When I don’t know what step to take next, the only way I can find direction is by turning to His words. The Bible has the answer for every road block that I stumble upon. When I search the Scriptures, it’s plain to see that I’m really not alone. My heart and mind find calm and comfort from the One who loves me most.
What about you? Are you facing a challenge that is beyond your control? You can rest in God’s love for you. It’s real. It’s unchanging. His grace is everything you need.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19
Love you. Thank you
I feel those same feelings wishing I can “fix” things, also. But, I cannot. JESUS is my rock and I am leaning on him. I love you!
Such words of wisdom in this post! Thank you for sharing it.
Oh, my dear friend, I can here to catch up – but God knew I needed these words today. His timing is always right! I always want to fix things but have to learn that the only things I can do is lean – and pray – and leave the fixing to Him.
Such true words, my friend! I am reminded of this truth often. We need Him so desperately every day, but sometimes, we only notice when life gets hard. I am so thankful He is waiting there for me at the end of myself…every time. He is so faithful!
Thank you for sharing these thoughts,
wise words from a wise woman 🙂
I too cannot imagine my life without the Lord to lean on….how we just cannot control some things but HE has everything…EVERYTHING in control…if we could just remember that in the more difficult or dark times. Recently I reminded my oldest daughter who is still looking for work in her field that God DOES have a plan and HE is still in control of her life….even if it seems hard right now. I pray you have a Merry Christmas, Paula. God bless you and your beautiful family.
