My Friday Forethought


I have been having a super hard week and honestly have not been prioritizing my private time with God, studying scripture and indulging in spiritual self-care in general.  After another long day of doctor appointments, I finally was able to lay down on my bed and quickly decided that worship is what I would focus on at that time.  As I closed my eyes, I take a deep breath and all of the sudden I can remember reading…

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Immediately I started to feel overwhelmed.  Why have I been stressing myself out for so long??  This is exactly what I needed to hear.

I have been struggling to navigate life and figure a lot of things out lately.  My health is stressing me out.   It’s almost the end of another school year and that is stressing me out.  I’m having a hard time trying to figure out what is best for me right now and what isn’t, and I have been feeling more than overwhelmed about it all.

It kind of reminded me also of these verses from Psalms 34.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

The righteous person may have many troubles,
    but the Lord delivers him from them all;


Gotta be honest, some days just aren’t going to be easy for any of us.  Then, there will be days that you will be happy and on top of the world.  No matter where you are today, these verses can be the perfect reminders that you can still have comfort and peace regardless of your situation.  I hope you find some in those words, today.
