Happy Thursday friends! Welcome to another edition of His Encouragement where some blogging friends and I try to share a little inspiration to help you get through the week.
I’m going to get right to it this week – life has been super crazy lately. There have been medical issues, work is frustrating, things don’t seem to be going the way that they should, and some days I’m just about ready to throw in the towel. Have you ever gone through that? It’s kind of like everything happens at once. The old saying that God doesn’t give us more than we can handle certainly comes to mind, but I have to be honest that sometimes in the thick of things, I wonder if it’s true. Yep, here comes my doubt again.
Why is it that believers go through little blimps of doubt? And we’re so quick to it. Just yesterday I felt this way in fact. Yes, I asked God for a break. And no, He didn’t give it to me in the way I wanted him to. Does it make me want to run away and hide? If we’re perfectly honest with each other, yes. But then this short, sweet and important verse comes to mind.
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Through all of this, how many times did I try to solve things my own way? Several. In fact, I can name a number of times that prayer was not my first answer and shame on me! But there were a few times I did pray. I cast my cares upon the Lord and guess what? He helped me! I only needed to ask.
That’s the point of all this friends. God cares about YOU. He wants you to seek HIS help, not your own. SO the next time life gets hard and you want to throw in the towel, talk to God first. I guarantee He’ll be right there to pick you up and send you the perfect encouragement!
What’s been on your heart this week friends? I hope you’ll share in the comments, and please don’t forget to visit my friends and see what they’re sharing this week!
