God cares for me, and He has the ability to relieve my worries, my stresses. I relinquish control onto Him. Two sentences that seem so simple…..
But why has it not been that simple for me in my life. On a day to day basis, there are instances where I let my thoughts go down a path that spins out of control.
All He wants is for me to come to Him in those times. He wants me to believe that in all things, He is there.
Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
He cares for me, unconditional, never ending love and power. He is at the center, and just wants me to lean on Him in everything.
My shelter in the rain, my protector, my everything.
He is in control….
Sometimes I feel like there is a battle that is going on inside of me. I am not worthy, I don’t fit the mold, I am scared, I worry, I try to control.
I ask for help,
I give thanks….
I am thankful for the experiences, for the pain, and for the perspective He has been given to me. The scars are visible, but they do not define who I am.
I believe in Him, in Love, and that He reigns.
He holds me, He carries me, He is my strength.
We were meant for so much more than this, we were meant to live a life of abundance in all things.
To feel light,
To see the light….
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
There is a place for us, beyond all comprehension.
Where you feel love, where you feel whole.
There is no fear, worry, or heartache.
A place where life is light always. Where the warmth of love feels like the first time you were held as a babe.
Where brokenness is restored again.
In Revelation 21:1-5, God gave John a vision of what will happen when God restores broken things:
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’”
Today, we are here on Earth, and God promises He will carry us, and He is in control. Give your worries to Him and rest.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11: 28-30 NIV)
Dear Lord God,
I thank-you for watching over me, and showing me how to trust. I ask You to keep me strong, and to protect my mind and the minds of all that I love from the devils evil whispers. I ask that all that are going through hardship and pain, that they hear the voice of your Holy Spirit. I ask that the words are Your truth. You are the healer of the sick, you give rest to the weary, and Your wisdom is beyond comprehension. You are our Father that cares for each one of us. I give my worries to you as you will take care of them. I ask that You help all those that are searching for You. I pray for this in Jesus’ Name Amen.
