Woke up feeling anxious this morning, a heaviness on my chest. Not sure if a chain of nights staying up late has anything to do with it, but I’m exhausted.
Have been going through a period of bitterness and a lack of hope. Just feeling like I will never move beyond my current job, no matter how hard I try to break free. Reminded that God delights in every detail of our lives, that God holds us in His hand, I needed that this morning. Thought I’d share.
2014 is looming on the horizon. I find myself thinking about what life changes I want to make next year; I find myself anxious to see where God is going to lead my family. Speaking of the word anxious, if there was one verse that God has been trying to nail into my head that verse would be Philippians 4:6.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
Time and time again, I have seen God move on behalf of my family. Whether that has meant a random check in the mail to help pay for student loans or even God advocating on my behalf in certain situations, He has constantly reinforced that He is in control…no matter how hard I try to be.
What has God been doing in your life? What has He been teaching you?
Not really a proverb this week…but more of a quote. 🙂
Came across this in my daily study:
Priest and author Henri Nouwen wrote, “Make the conscious choice to move in the attention of your anxious heart away from the waves and direct it to the One who walks on them and says, ‘It’s me, Don’t be afraid.’
