Where I Find Myself . . .

Between a rock and a hard place (or so the saying goes).

Yikes! As a woman of strong (or so I thought) faith, this image of a stray sheep stuck where it doesn’t belong truly fits my ‘feelings’right now. I truly hate to admit that, but you see, circumstances beyond my control – don’t you love that phrase? – chased me right into a hard place and now I feel as though the very breath is being crushed out of my being!

Wondering about the how, when and why . . . tears flowing . . . yet I do still have that precious, unending, overwhelming, beyond understanding PEACE within. It is a very amazing thing . . . this battle between spirit and flesh!

What to do, what to do . . . . Oh! The ONLY thing one can do in a time like this . . . “having done all, to stand!” Ephesians 6:13 . . . and, stand . . . I am! Here is what I am choosing to stand upon:

 

My God is the ONE Who provides for all my needs!

My God is ALWAYS watching over me, He is over me like a banner, a shield!

  • Song of Solomon 2:4 Jehovah Nissi and I build my life as an altar before Him because He is my banner! Exodus 17:15
    • Actually, Jehovah Nissi also stands for “The Lord my miracle”, according to Blue Letter Bible  (and I need a miracle right now!)
  • He is my shield, my buckler, my rock, my high tower, my place of refuge!!! He gives His angels charge over me! Psalm 91
  • Nothing can EVER separate me from His love!!! Romans 8:38-39

These are but a few of the promises I am clinging to . . . and I am trusting with all my heart . . . He is ever Faithful . . . this is just one of those times when the trusting comes along with a wee bit of “Lord, I believe, help Thou my unbelief.” because my flesh cannot comprehend all that is happening . . . but I am praising Him through it all . . . KNOWING He always has my best in mind . . .

Abba Father, thank You for Your love. Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your peace as I go through this valley. Thank You for washing me with waves of Your peace, and thank You for forgiving my moments of doubt. I know beyond any shadow of any doubt that this too will pass and all will be for my good and Your glory. In Jesus Name, Your Handmaiden awaits Your plan, amen.

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
