There are days I feel I am at my lowest emotionally, when it gets hard to even go on my knees to pray because I feel overwhelmed. I ask all sorts of questions and even cry myself to sleep.
I had one of those days recently and I chose to give up on something important to me because I felt I didn't have the strength to fight any more.
When I go through this phase, I let myself feel sorry for a while, get it together and remember God's promises to His people. To Zion, To ME and I go down on my knees to ask His forgiveness for being anxious, for being fearful and for losing hope on the same thing I have spent hours asking for by faith. I remember who I am!
I remember to cast all my fear on Him because He cares for me like no other and I know I have no choice but to cast all of my anxiety on Him and trust Him completely. After all, His Word in Isaiah 40:31 says that they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. So, why worry? I ask myself.
In my opinion, words of encouragement to self and anyone who may be going through one thing or the other can never be over emphasised. I force myself to run under the canopy of God because I know my saviour will cover me and give me security under His canopy. tihihihi....I couldn't resist doing that, it is the Sunday school teacher in me. :D
I will just drop some of the verses that help me go through the funk. As I continue to be hopeful and prayerful knowing that He will come through for me. He said it, I believe it and that settles it.
And I hope this reaches out to someone even in the smallest way that His name may be glorified.
Remember, whatever it is, it will end in praise! And like I tell myself all the time, Pray! Pray! Pray! even when I don't feel like it, Pray and keep prying until something happens.
Psalm 91 and all the Psalms.
