It can be so easy to be entrapped in our thoughts and emotions, especially when we are frustrated with where we are in a particular season. The moments where we feel like God is not present and feel vulnerable, doubtful, and low. That is the time to get on your knees in deep prayer and worship the Lord. 

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” -John 10:10 (NIV) 

As challenging as it was, I could not keep my focus on God when I was out of a job. I was able to find a job as a temporary receptionist. I was grateful but still worried. When my time as a temp was over, I was hired on within the company and elevated in less than a year with a raise. There was no doubt in my mind I was exactly where I needed to be, and God blessed me not only with a permanent job but with a mentor! 

Our thoughts must be rooted in Christ as we surpass and conquer the battle of dealing with our emotions. Our thoughts and emotions cannot cloud, hinder, or distract the mind. Remember to expect from God, look to God, and trust in God. He is for us, and He is our help, our healer, and our provider. He holds our heart and future in the palm of His hands. 

But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” 
-Psalm 3:3 (NIV)
