Sometimes the pressures of life threaten to overwhelm us and sweep us away like a strong river current. During these times God continues to be with us. He does not leave us to suffer alone. He does not promise to take us out of our trials. But He does promise to be with us and guide us every step of the way! Praise be to the Lord, our great constancy!
Today God knew I needed this devotion. Today is one of those days when my brain and my heart are not on the same page! I am so thankful that God's Word gives me these promises because sometimes I end up in a funk and if it were not for His Word. . . . I am not sure I could get out of the funk I find myself in! God is constant. . . I am not, thus the problem lies. Please pray for me and my family, we have many changes going on right now and Chris and I are facing the dreaded empty nest syndrome! This comes with both excitement. . . . . and dread! I asked Chris if I could go off to College too, but he told me no. . . . oh well! I know God has great plans for Chris and I as well, it is just a matter of learning to live life differently, but I am up for the challenge. . . . most days anyway. I still have the grandkiddos to play with and love on and I always look forward to that. . . . . I am blessed and life is great! I just need to keep reminding myself when I get down.
~Father God, I thank You for Your Word and for Your many promises. I thank You for the wonderful people You have placed in my life. I thank You for Your many, many blessings and I ask that You forgive me for the times I have taken those blessings for granted. Please know that I love You Father and I am sooooooo thankful! I thank You and praise You in the name of Jesus. . . . .Amen!~
