Sometimes I wonder if the thoughts that bring me comfort and joy ever help anyone else… recently I found out that the fabulous Jamie Grace got engaged… and while I’m so excited for her next adventure in life – there was a small part of my heart and mind that struggled with the bitterness that can so easily take hold of my life. Younger, Earlier, Prettier, whatever descriptive adjective the enemy can use to make me feel inadequate or unworthy of my own love story he will try. Each time I see or hear that news; relationship… engagement… marriage… I’m genuinely happy for them but there’s always that split second (or sometimes multiple moments) of genuine struggle where I consciously have to take those thoughts captive and remember that I’m trusting in God’s timing and His purpose for my life. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10. Don’t allow the enemy to steal your joy – trust In the One Who knows the ending to the story He’s writing and have faith that its better than anything you could ever dream up. I’m preaching to the choir on this one – I need these reminders daily!
Tonight on my way home from work Jamie Grace’s first single came on KLOVE- I feel like I haven’t heard it in forever… and it grabbed a hold of my heart in the most precious way because no matter what comes next I love the way my Savior holds me each and every step of this life. He holds my heart and He holds my future in His hands. If you haven’t heard this song (or even if you have) please take a listen and be encouraged:
💖Happy Weekend Friends💖 Whatever season you find yourself in – let Him hold you each step of the way…
