Your Story?

So how’s your story shaped up this week? You knew it was coming and sort of dreaded the unknowns of what you knew would happen. It’s okay isn’t it? It came and it went and you’re still here in real time and in real life and you have so much to be thankful for. You’re Still in one piece although there were moments you wondered about! Good for you! It wasn’t you though it was just that awesome grace that God gives so generously to His creation and created things. Yeah, He graced us this week and led us through those unknowns. It wasn’t a problem for Him. He knew the unknowns in the path and managed them ahead of us. That’s just what He does. I love how He does it?

It’s those unknowns isn’t it? Those little things that catch in the apprehensive corners of our minds and take us off guard. They send us reeling off track and out of control when our fears get hung up on mistrust and doubt leading us into anxieties that should never arise. There’s so much happening in the world and so much crazy happening in our world with stuff out of our control. Anxious thoughts creep in and frazzle our hearts and minds, leaving us weak and rendering us useless. We forget that our power is not in ourselves and our control of the situation! Oh how quickly we forget, in our humanness and insecurity that it’s our sovereign God who is faithful to see us through the hard places. To grace us and make a way for us to face the day of unknowns.

In Psalm 94: 18, 19, the psalmist’s experience of slipping, contrasts with God’s promise to stand with him. “I cried out, “I am slipping!’ But your unfailing love, O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” God stands by His own and He’s so faithful all the time. He calls us to be strong and courageous even in the difficult and the unknowns of this life. His words to Joshua in 1:9, He says to us today right were we are ~

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Trust Him beautiful soul and find peace. He won’t let you go! The battles you face, you won’t face alone. His mercies are new every morning. Let Him open them up and disperse them into the precious moments of your day. ~k

He Holds All That Is Yours

Isaiah 41:10
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

And so ~ at the start of a new week, lay it all out before the God who holds it for you. He holds it regardless of our fragility, and our weakest moment. He holds it regardless of our insecurities and our exhaustion. He holds it in spite of the fear of failure, the wrong choices we’ll make or the stupid mistakes that will overwhelm our beautiful souls. Rest in that thought ~ that the God who holds the universe ~ The God who made the universe and holds it ~ holds your days one by one, with all the ups and downs, the poor health, the emotional hurts, the distress, the physical sickness, the pain and the chaotic moments. Yeah, He’s got it all and He working it all out so that you can come out on the top of this thing to bring Him the praise.

Just let Him do it and go with Him on it. Float over the hard places ‘cuz He’s got them and they’re right where they need to be ~ in His safe keeping today and the next and the next.
Beautiful soul ~ just rest and trust. God’s got it all! All that’s ahead and all that’s behind. There’s nothing to keep you from living this day to the fullest. Go for it! Live with His sweet grace poured over you and His abundant life of joy filling you to the brim!
