There are many times in one’s life when we lose heart and feel like falling apart.
Life is full of many seasons – great, good, bad, and even ugly.
I’ve been there in the great….. I’ve been there in the middle…. and yes, like many others,
I’ve been there in the ugly! Those are hard seasons to get through no doubt.
What do you do in those seasons? How do you handle the bad days, or bad months in your life?
Do you complain and grovel in your circumstances? or ……. do you step out in faith, and start to declare victory and His wonderful promises!!
We’ve all had bad days or awful seasons. Those times that everything goes wrong, days full of tears, and the end, can’t come quick enough.
One day can throw you off, but one day, can also change your life!
These days happen. I encounter them frequently. But that’s when I believe we just need to stop, surrender, and rely on God.
It sounds so easy, but we make it so hard.
During these frazzled times, I find myself just starting to call out to God….. and I find myself singing!. I sing to Him saying “I need you Lord! every hour, I need you”.
And this is the song that triggers that……..
As I sing, it makes me realize how much I NEED to rely on Him, trust Him, and depend on Him.
It should be the cry of our hearts all the time!
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
7 My victory and honor come from God alone.
He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
8 O my people, trust in him at all times.
Pour out your heart to him,
for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:5-8
This Psalm challenges me to wait and trust in Him. Even through rough times, I will NOT be shaken for my victory comes from God. Leading children and raising them, allows me to see HOW much I need Him.
All it takes is one day to throw you off. But if we are able to depend on Him every hour, every day, every month and every year, we will be come stronger parents, stronger spouses, stronger workers, and of course, stronger children of God.
