It seems like lately I lean to words of comfort. There is so much going on in our lives, in the lives of our family, in the lives of our friends and in the lives of others that we know and don't know.
I find that life is so stressful lately.
It is rushed, chaotic, demanding.
Sometimes it is full of great anxiety and sorrow.
I sat back yesterday and watched my children,
how their emotions were so mixed up
and they were fighting because they didn't quite know how to deal with what they were feeling.
I understood this emotion.
How sometimes just the amount of stress in life
can allow you to react in a way that really was not intended,
you just burst at the seams,
like a teapot, that is nice and hot and ready to pour.
This all leads me to the word of God this morning
and some verses to share
in hopes that if you need some comfort or reassurance
you might find it in the Words of our Heavenly Father.
The Lord has heard my weeping. The Lord has heard my cry for mercy, the Lord accepts my prayer.
In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From the depths of the grace I called for help, and you listened to my cry. Jonah 2:2
This is what the Lord says to you, Do not be afraid or discouraged.. For the battle is not yours, but God's.
2 Chronicles 20:18
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor; If they fall down, they can help each other up. But pity those who fall and have no one to help them up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm, But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
I pray for you today. I pray that your needs be met, that your heart be lighter. I pray that you find the goodness in the midst of the storm. If you would like prayer directly please comment and I would be happy to lift up your requests.
