There are times in life when you just feel overwhelmed–when your soul feels lost, your heart feels cold or numb, your mind is saddened, and your thoughts tend to wander to the worst case scenario. If you have ever been consumed with fear or hit rock bottom, feeling like you will never get back up, know that you are not alone! You may feel alone, been abandoned by family and friends, have nowhere to go and no one to turn to. But rest assured that feeling is a LIE straight from Satan!!
You are NEVER alone! You NEVER have to go through the trials of life alone! You NEVER have to walk the road of life by yourself! GOD is with you ALWAYS! He promises to never leave you and to never forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:5-8). He knows exactly what you need, even if you feel differently (Matthew 6:25-29).
So when you feel lost or abandoned, are hurting or sad, find yourself confused or depressed…reach out to God! Let Him fill your heart to overflowing, giving you peace beyond understanding, providing hope for a better, brighter tomorrow, and showering you with love that covers all the hurt and pain.
Pick up the scriptures, open up to Psalms, and make God personal for you! Absorb his words and let them inspire you! I have done just that, and found my heart begin to repair, my thoughts start to align with God’s, and my anxiety slowly fade. When I hit my lows in this life, I have taken many a scripture that inspired me and created my own Psalm–prayer, song, or love letter–to God! It has been therapeutic to release it all to the One True God who is bigger than anything I face, and who has only my best interest at heart (Jeremiah 29:11). So take a moment, write your own Psalm, your own prayer, song, or love letter to the Lord…giving him all that overwhelms you! In release you CAN find peace!
In his love and grace!
Bow down Your ear, O Lord, hear me; for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am holy, You are my God;
Save Your servant who trusts in You.
Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I cry to You all day long.
~ Psalm 86:1-3
My heart yearns for You
Hear my plea O Lord
Consider my suffering
Darkness dwells within my soul
Keeping me away from You
Hindering Your will
Help me Lord
Heal this unending pain
Light up my soul
Fill me with Your presence
Consume me with Your love
