I’ve been unable to write lately. It’s strange. Often times struggle sends me to the pen. This time it just shut me down. I just couldn’t find the words. Perhaps it’s because I felt as though God wasn’t speaking…yet I saw His words in my Bible everyday. I would tell myself, “keep reading”. I did. I still am. And this morning, His words breathe life again. They always do, really. Sometimes I just turn my face away. Sometimes I guess I want to wallow a bit before I settle into knowing that He is still God.
I am so grateful that He is still God. I’m so grateful that His plans for me are always good…even when they don’t look the way I had hoped they would. I can rest assured that His love for me has not changed. So this morning I will breathe in His love. I will breathe in His words that speak life. I will remember that there is never a reason to fear. He is my Father, and I am His child.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.Isaiah 41:10
