Throughout this process I made a promise to myself, to be honest!
For a variety of reasons, I am struggling to live out the following Proverbs 31 characteristic…
It’s a real challenge at the moment. I can manage “pleasant to be around” but joyful is a bit of a push. There are plenty of things I have to be thankful for. I know the drill of speaking positive things over my life and all that but sometimes life is just hard work.
I confess that I have felt particularly sorry for myself today. A number of situations are dragging on, taking my attention from where my mind needs to be and stealing my sleep. I’m sharing because I know I’m not alone in this. We put on our best Sunday faces, smile and say “I’m fine,” and decide that the concerns we have are insignificant compared to the troubles of others. I don’t need a “u ok hon?” I just needed to be honest and then set to work replacing the lies of insecurity and worry with the truth about the God that I love.
My God is faithful.
My God has never failed me, even in my darkest moments.
My God has plans for me and is working all situations for good.
My God will never leave me.
My God will guide me and provide wisdom when I need it.
My God loves me more than I will ever comprehend.
He feels the same way about you too.
You are held.
You are secure.
You are loved.
