The message today in the devotional meant a lot. I’ve been struggling. Day by day God continues to amaze me. Whatever is weighing heavily on my mind seems so much more instantly addressed than when I wasn’t in the right place with him. Hallelujah is the Lord Jesus Christ! He is perfect, my savoir, my redeemer. And I thank him so much for listening and giving me the answers. And now I know deep down even if a solution to one of my inner battles is not what I want, it’s what I NEED. If God wants it for me, so be it. He knows what he’s doing and I’m going to give that all to him. My entire life, fate, future, being.. lies in the palms of his hands, there for him to do anything he wants with it. And because of his abundant love for me, as long as I seek knowledge and security in him, he’ll provide. So, so lucky I am for him even being available to me when I don’t deserve it. But for some reason I am worthy. Amen.
What God was portraying through Sarah Young in todays devotional message is that in the depths and core of my soul, I have the opportunity to have everlasting knowing and peace through him. And nothing else will fill this void in my soul in such a manner. If peace is what I seek in my heart, my soul.. nothing else will do. I must seek to you, God. “You will not find lasting peace in the world around you, in circumstances, or human relationships.” God holds the only capability for it. I can only hope and pray to my savoir to be reminded of this when my own selfish and sinful tendencies lead what’s really important astray, yet again. Before I wasn’t occasionally led astray. It was more of a giant block from justness being in my life. Now in present time, since I have sought, experienced & found, all I have to do is remember the only real “fortune” of any importance is the Lord Jesus Christ and his father. I accept that. After all, he gave me life, his love, his everything, so my spirits life can persist on endlessly. Dear God, bring this message to me when I am running low on faith and in the hardest of trying times. And I’m truly sorry and ashamed it took me so long to see the light, to do what I needed to do. Be with my friends who may be lost so they can too feel your love and walk the “narrow path” with me. Work your miracles & amaze us all with what you are capable of (aka EVERYTHING!) for you have worked one on me and once again, while my worthiness falls short my thankfulness is high. Can’t wait to continue this beautiful journey with you, if I am such as lucky enough to open my eyes another day. And if I do, Hallelujah! For I know my God is with me. And will all of these things I ask of & tell you, AMEN.
