How is it that our days can seem so full and yet we can feel lonely? Often I long for just a moment alone. But, at the same time I feel lonely. Being a wife and mom is hard – so much to do and so many expectations to live up to.
Today’s reading in the One Year Bible (click here to read along with us) was such an encouragement to my heart.
MY GOD IS …
I do not need a reservation or an appointment. He is ever present in my life – in every moment, in every circumstance, in every day. He is there! He is always there to encourage me. HE is by my side ready to comfort me. He is willing to enter in to every moment with His peace. It is woven in and through today’s reading in many ways. I encourage you, right now, open your Bible. Let the Lord breathe He’s loving encouragement into your tired heart. Just take a moment to be recharged in His loving Presence.
- He sees and knows EVERYTHING. (1 Chronicles 28:9)
- He is my ENCOURAGER. (1 Chronicles 28:20)
- He will never fail me. (1 Chronicles 28:20)
- He is over EVERYTHING. (1 Chronicles 29:11)
- EVERYTHING we have comes from Him. (1 Chronicles 29:14)
- He EXAMINES our hearts. (1 Chronicles 29:17)
- He ENTERS into our lives. (Romans 5:6)
- His love is ENDLESS. (Romans 5:8-9)
- He loves us EVEN THOUGH. (Romans 5:16)
- His saving grace is available to EVERYONE. (Romans 5:18-21)
I encourage you to journal today. Take some time to remember specific times when the Lord has made Himself known to you. Choose one of the above verses and write it out in your own words, inserting your name and making it personal. Add in your own circumstances and let it encourage you today. Here is mine:
Pick up your Bible – grab hold of Your God. He is EVER PRESENT. His counsel is available always. Got help? Yes, you DO! Open His Word. Let His Words on the pages guide and direct your heart and your days and your ways.
I would love you to join me as I continue the Summer Bible Challenge. We are reading the One Year Bible everyday (Monday – Friday) for 26 days. If you are just joining us, take a moment to watch this brief video – it tells our heart behind the challenge. I hope you will continue with us as we seek to focus on who God is this summer.
My prayer for us today –
Lord, help us to live and love like women who truly understand Your hand never leaves us. You are EVER PRESENT in every moment. Let us rest in Your strength and Your grace always. In Your Mighty Name, AMEN!
Remember – He is EVERYTHING!
