Some days it’s ok to not be perfect. Some times it’s ok to just grab a cup of tea or a second cup of coffee and curl up with a blanket and some happy thoughts and just know you’re in safe keeping under a God that loves you unconditionally under the light of a billion stars and in the glory light of the Cross! Oh yes, and it doesn’t matter your situation, He’s got that too! He knew way before you and He’s loving you through it and carrying you over it. So yeah, beautiful one, some days it’s just fine to be an imperfect soul basking in His grace, knowing His favor and resting in His safe keeping. #SoulNoteToSelf
So have you some things coming at you that you wish weren’t. They’re coming from all directions and it’s shaping up to be a hassled week with difficult things to face. Oh, they’re not really even that hard, but for you they are because it’s your story and your story has nooks and crannies that others might not even know nor care about. Know, this beautiful soul; God’s presence goes before you today, tomorrow and the week ahead and paves the way for your difficult moments. He’s not leaving you to face it on your own or to walk your path of distress, alone. No! Not even for a moment is He doing that. For your anxieties, He’s got peace. For the blues, He’s got Hope! For the doubts, He’s got promises! For our weaknesses, He’s got strength. For our failures He got grace and for our insecurities He’s got confidence and unconditional love that reaches to the lowest depths of our feelings to lift us into the highest heights of the heavenlies. That’s pretty awesome to thing about. So think on it today as you ponder the days ahead. He’s got it! He’s got it all; your next moment, your day, the week ahead and He might not send a burning bush or a parted Red Sea as such, but He will indeed speak over you and bless you with divine guidance if you wait on Him, and walk on faithfully. So persevere through the difficult, faithful one, and watch His mighty hand work His miracles through your complexities!
“Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.”
“Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand. With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory.”
“For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, “I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite.”
Ok, so whatever it is you’re going through, or whatever it is that you’re about to face, or wherever you’ve been or whatever’s goin’ down, you know He’s still faithful! He always is. He’s always giving over the grace and handing out the mercy and yeah, you know God won’t let you down no matter the situation or the circumstance! Oh it might not be easy street and it might not be simple but He’s got it and He’s got you and He’ll see you through it and strengthen you in it. Just realize today, that your situation and circumstance doesn’t have you, but God has ‘it’ and He’s the Master of all creation and the Master of all of our stuff. So ~ beautiful soul, lean in closer when the going gets tough and gather up the grace that He gives and soak in that sweet, incomprehensible and unconditional love that He’s so faithful at lavishing on us. He’s got it for you today and tomorrow and the week ahead. Trust Him! Just trust!
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
John 16: 33
"Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;..
So beautiful soul, just know today that God’s hands are big enough to hold all those concerns of yours, so you don’t have to! Yes, just when your mind’s on overload with it all and you already have enough on your plate and your heart all but stops when yet, something more surfaces, God says, “I’ve got that too!” You can rest assured He does, and you don’t even have to go there except to give it all over to Him. So, that financial pressure, kid trouble, health issue, relational crisis, major loss, and uncertain future can just be given over and left in His hands. We have an awesome God of grace and mercy and He loves dearly and deeply with no strings attached. We don’t have to prove ourselves or qualify for top running, because in God’s Kingdom to lose is to win.
In Matthew 11: 27, 28, 29, Jesus Himself, revealed His relationship with His Father God explaining how everything He said and did was rooted in this Father /Son unity when He explains to His listeners, “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 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.”
Even today, our Lord speaks for us and prays to His Omnipotent, all knowing Father on our behalf and for our needs. He takes them all before the throne of grace; all the anxieties, the issues, the pressures and the short comings and He lays them out before His Father and our God, who made all things, knows all things and holds all things in His hand and dear to His heart. He's got it for you today! Well, He’s got you beautiful one, and that’s enough! So rest in that thought and know that whatever life throws at you, He'll bring you through.
