Yesterday I celebrated my mama’s 6th birthday in heaven, she would have been 93. Today I celebrate my sister’s birthday, we won’t discuss which one. Both are celebrations, yet very different. Isn’t this the way we all live!!!!! We celebrate and grieve all in the same moment!!! We are happy and sad, mad and glad, proclaiming and retreating all in the same moment!!!!
What do we do with all of the conflicts in our hearts and lives? We run to Jesus and hold onto Him with all we have!!! We trust Him to be with us, walk or carry us through whatever we face!!!
I have my favorite scriptures and passages, along with favorite worship music that helps to encourage my heart!
Psalm 91, He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+91&version=ESV
Psalm 121, I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+121&version=ESV
Psalm 27:1,”The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?”
Psalm 34:4, “I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.”
Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 40:31, but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Just a few of the scriptures the Lord has used in this season, so any more!
