Due to the storms this weekend, I didn’t sleep well last night either. While I’m processing my projects for work, I wanted to share what I learned during my Quiet Time earlier today. Here is the Verse of the Day:
For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not be shaken,” Says the Lord who has compassion on you.
–Isaiah 54:10 NASB
If you guys have the Bible app, you notice they have these Storytime moments. Today’s storytime talked about God’s love being unshakeable. After reading this scripture and following the storytime, things started popping up in my mind. Here’s what I’ve been struggling with for a while on my spiritual journey:
- I find myself going to food, toxic relationships, and material things during times of stress, anxiety, depression, and times of pure happiness and joy instead of turning to God for help
- Feelings of frustration, being overwhelmed, and more stress causes me to either run away from my problems or wait until things get out of hand to deal with them
- When I do pray, read the Word, and talk to God, I feel like I let Him down when I turn around and fall back into old habits
- In the end, I beat myself up constantly for not doing what is right, and at times, forget that God loves me, through all my flaws, and that He wants me to run to Him and obey Him through everything that happens in my life
Overall, I’m learning that if I don’t have peace and try to find peace in God, there will be constant unrest in all aspects of my life. Today’s lesson for me: find peace in God, and He will give it to you if you surrender to Him. His love for you will never change. That’s how awesome God is.
Just some food for thought for you all. I hope you enjoy reading this post. I will be back with Day 6 of “Road to 200.” Have a great morning.
Until next time…
