So, to be totally and completely honest, I have really not been doing that great these past few days. Gone through some really rough stuff with a friend of mine. Had to let go of a different relationship that I wasn’t ready for and give it all to God. But you know what? God is good. I firmly believe that. Actually, I want to take a moment to praise Him right now.
Thank You for this day that You have blessed us with. Thank You for the wonderful people in our lives. Thank You for everything that You do in each and every one of our lives. Thank You for always holding on to each of us, and being right next to us when we call upon Your name. God I praise You for You loving kindness. I praise You for Your wonderful faithfulness, and every little detail that You use to let us know You know what we need, and to let us know You love us with a mighty, passionate, Holy love. You are amazing. Jesus, thank You for dying for me.
Okay, so just know I’m only telling you I’ve been having a rough time so that I can praise God through it, not for sympathy or attention.
Here’s the deal. It stinks to be pouring yourself out for God and for others all of the time and still feel like you are not enough. Still feel like no matter how hard you try, you could’ve done better. It stinks, and to hold onto to those thoughts is exactly the opposite of what God wants for you. God wants you to try your best, then rest in Him. Not spend all your time wondering why you aren’t doing more or better than you are. It stinks when you are pursuing what God wants and end up feeling like you’ve lost your best friend. So here’s the deal. Life stinks sometimes. Things hurt sometimes. Things don’t always go well. Let it go, and let God take it. Let God take it all away and fill you with His strength and His power to get you through the day. It really isn’t by your own power you are doing the things you do to serve Him anyway, is it? Surrender it all to Him again and try to remember that it is Him working through you, Him holding you when you cannot walk on your own two feet anymore. Let it go and smile again. Because Jesus is good. Because our God is a great, great God. Let the peace of God smooth out the hurting and smooth out the regret in your heart.
I want to do it all for You. I want every single thing in my life to be for You. I love You so much and want to pursue You to wherever You may lead me. I want to write these devotionals with the right attitude in my heart, and give You all of the praise and all of the glory. Please humble my heart God, so that I never think I write from my own skill, but remind me that I write because I passionately love You. You are so Holy, and so worthy of the praise of every human on the planet. I love You forever God. Forever. Thank You for the music, the songs, that You use to help me through my rough times! You are amazing!
I love you guys. Hope you all have a wonderful day. If you need prayers let me know!
