Strength in the Storm

Are you going through a storm?  A fierce trail or heartache that seems like waves of sadness & defeat are slapping you again & again and not letting up.  You are not alone and MORE IMPORTANT…you DO NOT HAVE TO GO IT ALONE!  I will share the comfort that our amazing Heavenly Father is giving me.  It is yours for the taking too!

When one of the biggest emotional storms hit my life, I fell to my knees. When my whole life was shattered like a pile of broken glass on the floor, I needed hope.

When my heart was so broken and I slid to the floor, I cried out to God.  In the quietness of my heart I heard His reply, this is how the conversation went,

Me: “God, I can’t take this. There is no way that I can get through this.”

God: “Yes, my child, you will.  I will help you.”

Me: “No Lord, it is too much.  I can’t bear it.  I don’t have the strength.”

God: “You are right.  You do not have the strength, but I DO.” 

Me:  “I don’t understand Lord.  What must I do?”

God:  “Lean on Me.  I AM your strength, don’t let this shake you.” 

He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.” (Psalm 62:2)

Me:  “I’m scared Lord.”

God:  Shhhh, little one, I am here.  I will never leave you.  Trust Me.”

He is right.  All my struggles did not go away but leaning on God and trusting that He is working on my behalf gives me peace…I will get through this in His Strength.

You may be going through difficult times.  Maybe you have felt lost and without hope. When we are dealing with missing loved ones who have passed, broken families, wounded relationships, and the stresses & storms of life…Lean on Him.  Trust Him.

“I wait eagerly for the LORD’s help, and in His word I trust.”  Psalm 130:5

God is trustworthy, steadfast and sure. He is the strength of my heart. May He be the strength of your heart too.

Pause and Thank

This is such a busy time of year!  Running here and there, searching for the perfect gifts, planning the perfect meals, while our plates are already full with putting in hours outside the home, taking care of children, spouses, parents, attending church services, volunteering, catching up with extended family and so much more.  How can we ever get it all done?!  What if the plans don’t go right?

I would encourage you to do what I do.  I plan the best I can.  Something will go wrong, but it’s okay.  I am going to leave the outcome up to The LORD…

I am going to FOCUS on HIM this THANKSGIVING.  I am going to PAUSE, and be THANKFUL for ALL He has BLESSED me with.

“I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD”. Psalm 27:13 & 14
