The source of this picture is unknown (it was just circulating around Facebook for a while), but I thought it was perfect for my blog. This is how I feel about the world… and I’m thankful for Jesus because I wouldn’t be able to function some days without Him.
I’ve had a really rough few weeks/months emotionally and mentally, and until this morning, I just couldn’t shake it no matter what I tried. I got off of Facebook (thinking that was the problem), started working out five times a week, I eat well (most of the time), I take fish oil and whole foods vitamins… Nothing was working. I felt a very heavy weight on my shoulders.
I realized last night that my issue was that I was trying to “fix” it. Jesus is healer, not ME.
When I realized that there wasn’t anything that I could do, I gave it to Him.
He gave me peace.
“…in our crazy, messy world, HE is my peace.”
I’m praying that I’ll live each day knowing this truth. He will give me what I need… I just need to ask Him for it, then let go… stop trying to control everything!
I need to live one day at a time. I don’t know what the future holds, but He does. There are some things that I’m worried about (for the future), and there’s no reason to worry. Even when I think I know what will happen, things change… so all I can do is focus on today and everything will fall into place at the right time.
Praise Jesus for His peace.
