Life can seem really overwhelming at times and no amount of words can do justice to how we feel, what do you do at that moment?
It is a new week and in todays blog I just want to encourage someone, which is always my intention whenever I pick up my laptop or iPad to write. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you find it difficult to understand yourself? I mean you know something is going on within or even around you but you just cant seem to find the right words to describe the situation you are in.
words fail you, nothing feels right, you feel stuck, everything suddenly becomes irritating…..
I am not a super human, I also have this kind of days and all I wish for most of the times is for that feeling to just go away. One of my favorite scriptures to Read is psalms 139, this scripture just paints the picture of a man who just like me has days and moments when nothing makes sense, life seems so complicated and nothing feels right but he knows there is a supernatural force (God ) who knows him more than he knows himself.
This scripture reminds me of the kind of lover God is.
God is a lover who is so intentional about the one he loves, in those moments when I don’t understand myself He understands me that is something you can not get from any human not even your shrink. People can only suggest things to you which they feel will make you feel better but God knows exactly where it hurts.
I pray the Holy spirit Ministers to your heart as you read this scripture and carry on with the rest of your week. Stay tuned for Wednesdays post as I would be explaining more on this chapter.
PSALMS 139:1-17 (TLB VERSION )
1 O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit or stand. When far away you know my every thought.
3 You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am.
4 You know what I am going to say before I even say it.
5 You both precede and follow me and place your hand of blessing on my head.
6 This is too glorious, too wonderful to believe!
7 I can never be lost to your Spirit! I can never get away from my God!
8 If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the place of the dead, you are there.
9 If I ride the morning winds to the farthest oceans,
10 even there your hand will guide me, your strength will support me.
11 If I try to hide in the darkness, the night becomes light around me.
12 For even darkness cannot hide from God; to you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are both alike to you.
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it.
15 You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion!
16 You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!
17-18 How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me.[a] And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me.
You are not alone….
Have a blessed week ahead
