Do you need strength for today? Do you feel afraid and overwhelmed about tomorrow?
Many times we start the day off in a hurry. We wake up all stressed out before the day has even begun. Everything we need to do begins to rush through our minds; the house is not perfectly clean, food needs to be made, clothes need to be washed, I have to go to school, I have to work, family needs attention, bills need to be paid, my hair; there just isn’t enough hours in a day for me to get everything done! argh!!!
Beginning the day with all these thoughts is overwhelming, it can really leave us miserable. We begin to think that we just can’t get it done, we get anxious and stress begins to creep up on us. All day long we go around sad, depressed, and annoyed. Our life just seems too much! Why do I have to do everything? I need to get away; I can’t take this anymore. Nobody understands me!
We must realize that life does not need to be like this. God promises that He will give us the strength and the courage to face anything that may come our way. He knows everything we need to do. He sees us and loves us.
When we awake, we need a few minutes to talk with God, to read His word, His promises. We must believe we will get through the day with God. When something comes our way and begins to arouse those negative emotions and we begin to get overwhelmed, we need to take a step back, breathe, ask God ‘Help me, I need you right now’ and smile. Just think of all the blessings God has given us, He loves us, we are not alone.
Remember ‘All things are possible through Christ who strengthens us’. I can do this! Yeah!!!
I pray God gives you the serenity that you need to make it through the day. May His love cover all the anxiousness you may have. Rest assured in His arms and know you are secure and safe in Him. Do not be afraid He is with you Always.
“Be STRONG and COURAGEOUS. Do NOT be afraid or terrified…for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
