He's got this

February 12, 2014

Ever have those panic feelings when your world is falling apart?  Are you feeling overwhelmed, out of control, scared or lost? Wouldn’t it be nice to hear God’s audible voice saying “I’ve got this!”? Well, we may not hear it audibly, but we can certainly read it throughout His Word!  King David says, “You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.  Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” Psalm 139:5-12 NIV

if God hems us in

our pride

Plain and simple, pride is the only thing that keeps us from embracing the reality that He’s got this!  If the very God who spoke the world into existence, breathed life into man & heals the broken-hearted says that He is with us, then my friend, it’s up to us whether we choose to believe it or not.

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 NIV

It is solely in Jesus that we find:
Comfort Psalm 23:4
Peace Philippians 4:7
Hope Psalm 25
Courage Deuteronomy 31:6
Joy & Strength Nehemiah 8:10

So next time, you’re in the middle of a mess, feeling helpless, hopeless, overwhelmed, frustrated, angry or just tired… LOOK UP! Jesus will always be there with arms outstretched, ready to embrace you, love you & carry you!

Ive got this-God


link up time

I just love Wednesdays, because I get the privilege of linking up in two places:

with Holley Gerth


three word wednesday
with Simply Beth

holley-you're going to be okayIf you haven’t already picked up a copy of my friend Holley’s new book, you really should! She’s a beautiful, gifted writer, with the God-given ability to speak straight to your heart. Reading her books feels like you’re sitting across from her, looking into her face, sharing your heart & hearing from hers.   She’s such a gift, I promise this will be the best $12 you’ve spent!

      Amazing how 3 little words could mean so much, but when I read you words “I adore you” my heart skipped a beat & the widest smile flew across my face. Thank you, sweet Beth, for stopping by, for encouraging my heart & for speaking love to me. Appreciate you opening your blog to all of us on Three Word Wednesdays! Love to you! ♥
