I’m back at spending time in God’s word daily. I had been away for quite sometime. The attempts were there to get back to it but it didn’t stick. I have to admit when I spend some quiet time in God’s word in the morning it helps for me to be calm. I’m back at actually writing my prayers out and making a short grateful list. I can feel some of the darkness fall away bit by ever so small bit. It’s only day 2 but I need to acknowledge the good things more often to retain them in my mind I’ve decided.
The devotion for today was fitting for my life as well. Luke 8: 22-25 , do you know it? If not, click on it and take a gander. It’s simple but boy did I need that reminder. My storm has subsided at times but it’s still an ever present rain many days. So, hearing this simple story of Jesus taking care of things and having faith was a gentle push to the thoughts I need to be having.
That even though our financial situation isn’t great, God will take care of us. Although I can’t shake the darkness and the new medicine has some really yucky side effects when starting, it will be okay because no matter what He’s got my back. That even though my faith has been shaken and I wasn’t the true follower I needed to be in the past couple years, HE STILL LOVES ME. GOD FORGIVES. He has always and will always have me my back.
I know there will be days when I falter but I am given the opportunity to start again. That’s all I can do. Start again.
Pushing towards the light of grace but it’s freely given,
