Out of Control
This week has sucked, like really sucked. Turbulent to say the least. I felt so out of control that I slept, ate and drank more. Let’s say I have not lived an idyllic lifestyle. Definitely not becoming of a health and wellness blogger. But, as I sit on my deck and write this, I can feel His calm. The peace that comes from knowing God. A Father, who comforts, when the world around us is swirling. When I start to feel out of control (which still happens more than I would like), I can rest in His goodness.
No matter how things change, people let us down or sadness creeps in, He is there. Quietly waiting for me to run to Him. And, I do. I run with all I have, because there is no joy, comfort or thing that can compare to His LOVE.
The Peace that Comes from Him
The sun is shining on my face and the birds are singing. The sound of wind chimes are music to my soul. And, I know, everything is going to work out. Praying that if you feel out of control today that you turn to Him also. He doesn’t disappoint.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. -Psalm 46
