Happy Thursday friends! It’s time for another dose of His Encouragement, where a bunch of us share what God has put on our hearts for the week to provide you (and us) a little pick me up.
I’m a working mom, and while it breaks my heart to be in this position, I know that it’s what God has for our family right now. Working in the world can certainly take its toll on you. There are many days that I leave work frustrated, angry, and questioning how I’ll be able to make it through another day. I’ll ask God to give me a different job, to provide a different source of income for our family, or to at least bring some Christian coworkers (I currently have zero!). Basically what I’m telling God is that I don’t want to do this anymore, so please give me what my heart desires. You know what I haven’t been asking God? For His help. I just want Him to snap His fingers and give me what I want, instead of helping me through the situation.
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. Isaiah 41:13
The bible says that God will help us. He will hold our hand and get us through whatever situation we are struggling with. It could be work, home, children, anything…..He’s willing to help. This week God’s reminded me several times that instead of praying for a way out, I need to pray for God to help me through. It’s not been easy, and it’ll take some time to change my mindset, but God’s got this. He knows what I need and when I need it. He has a reason for me being here, and I need to be a light in the darkness for Him!
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!
