Today I wanted to share with you one of the readings from my devotional. You can read about the devotional I'm referring to, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young on a previous post. This is the reading from August 6th that I keep going back to...I just wanted to share it with you and hope it brings comfort to you when it seems as if nothing is going right.
"When things seem to be going all wrong, stop and affirm your trust in Me. Camly bring these matters to Me, and leave them in My capable hands. Then, simply do the next thing. Stay in touch with me through thankful, trusting prayers, resting in My soverign control. Rejoice in Me--exult in the God of your salvation! As you trust in Me, I make your feet like the feet of a deer. I enable you to walk and make progress upon your high places of trouble, suffering, or responsibility."
It's so comforting to know that He is there with us through everything. I'm struggling with something right now, something that has really tugged at me emotionally and physcially. Something that sure has made me angry with God, but then again has made my faith stronger in Him than ever before. It is something I have wanted since I was a Junior in high school. I have recently graduated with my Masters degree in Occupational Therapy, but there is a big, no lets say HUGE hurdle that has decided to land right in front of me. There is an exam you have to complete that is approximatly 4 hours, that has costed us a pretty penny each time, yes each time. I have taken this stupid thing 3 times now. This last time I was literally 1 point away from making it. (I'm getting upset just typing this out now) I'm sharing this with you because it is just something I have needed to get off my chest, and hoping it will help you if you are going through something tough. I just ask for your prayers while I go through this time and hope that you remember to NEVER GIVE UP! "So that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil." Hebrews 6:18-19
Thank you for letting me share this with you. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
