Daily Delight

Sunday, July 9, 2017

The last two weeks have been extremely busy and hectic, stressful and frustrating. Times like this really drag down my body, mind, and soul.
Amid all this madness, there has also been some big excitement and joy, and I haven’t been able to enjoy and celebrate the good things because I have been so overwhelmed.

I have tried to pray as I go, asking God to please settle my nerves and calm my mind, but the knot in my stomach and pressure in my chest just would not let up.

I talked to my husband about it all last night and finally broke down. This is all too much and I am exhausted. He hugged me tight and said, “You can’t do anything about this stuff. And, no matter what happens or how, you know that everything is going to work out exactly like God wants it to. Your worrying like this isn’t going to change anything. You just have to trust God to work everything out.”
And just like that, the weight began to slowly lift. So, this morning, even though I have a list of at least ten things that I need to do today, I chose to start the day on the back porch with God.

This world, this life is busy and stressful and I constantly need someone to remind me that it is in the silence with God where I find the strength to survive.

For me, that person is usually my husband or a close friend or family member. Other times it is a total stranger whose words in a book, a blog, or a sermon realign my course.

If you don’t have someone in your life to remind you of these truths, can I be that for you right now?
As you sit wherever you are, in the car, on the couch, hiding in the bathroom at work because the tears threaten to spill over at any second, can I just give you a virtual hug and tell you, you can’t and don’t have to bear this weight alone. Worrying changes nothing but your mind, body, and soul. Everything is in God’s hands and He knows what is going to happen in every situation. Get alone with Him and let Him breathe life into your weary soul. God is within you, Daughter, You will not fall.
