When I get overwhlemed...


I break down. I turn to my Savior, and by turn I mean run. And after a few minutes, sometimes a few hours of turmoil, there's peace. I found out some unexpected news today, and it left me feeling a bit helpless. And I turned to my savior and really felt his grace.

Does He see my problems?

Is He Truly Good?
Does he really care for me?

These are the questions that plague my heart, and I am reminded of God's Word, and its goodness floods my heart.

Does Paul not say " And we know that in ALL things God works for the GOOD of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28.

Psalms 37 
3Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. 4Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.5Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: 6He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. 7Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Jeremiah 31:3: The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness."

Zephaniah 3:17  The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

And then I sit, and I think...My problem is a dot compared to how big my God is, He can completely obliterate any problem i have, or he can show up and show me who he is through my problems. He is truly and utterly good And he cares about me. And I know that each and every struggle I face, God will work to good for me. because I do love him, and I have been called to his purpose.

I'm excited after time has passed to look back and say "Wow, Jesus you really showed up there.'" And stand in awe of how awesome he is.

I hope you find peace in Jesus.

Over & Out.

  1. friend, i literally just read exodus 14:14 then read this. In Exodus, I am blown away about how much God loves the Israelites and doesn't give up on getting them out of Egypt. God doesn't leave Moses either, even through his uncertainty. God heard a call and He answered. You are so right, our God is bigger and better and more sufficient than anything our minds could make up. Lifting some prayers up big time for you tonight, Brit.
