Lately, for months it seems like it’s one trial after another. Many times I just have to stop and ground myself. I can’t see clearly. Stopping to breathe, sitting with the Lord, praying with a sister gives me to ability to see things that are coming from different angles!
I have to stop and say, "My first ministry is my husband, kids, family and all the people that are around me and places that I frequent. All that other stuff is not my focus."
Why do you think busyness captures us? Why do you think more keeps coming?
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
So our world will get crazy, busy and overwhelming! We know from reading scripture we will have struggles and strive. Always remember while in these battles there is always more going on than what we see. These forces want to cause confusion, take our focus, wants to make us feel defeated, and powerless! Don’t believe it, and don’t accept it. Yes, cry, and let it out. Scream "I am not powerless!" if you have too!
Let's fight these battles spiritually. We conquer a different way by using prayer, fasting, reading the Bible, and Worship & Praise. Yes, I know things get hard! I know the struggle and the pain. We can do hard things because Jesus equips us! We go farther and trust that God is always in control!
I love the song Ocean's from Hillsong and the lyric's: Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters. Wherever You would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander. And my faith will be made stronger. Keep my eyes above the waves.
Your eyes are above the waves, Sister!
