I am have become glued to the media and news channel~ trying to make sense of this crazy place we find ourselves. It is so conflicting and really just dismal to even turn on the news. Yet~ I am drawn to it like a magnet. I am not sure we can even believe anything we are hearing. As I was doing my quiet time this morning with God I confessed my addiction to trying to figure it all out. I am a researcher and fixer. Guess What? There is only one fix for this mess our country is in. Really it is true. Our President, our Congress, our Senate .....you name it~ they can't fix a thing. We are all looking for answers and solutions in all the wrong places.
Good News~ read all about it. Are you ready?
God loves us with an everlasting love. In His loving kindness, He is constantly drawing you.The God of the Universe is crazy in love with you.
Wait there is more good news.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
We don't have a God that can not be touched with our infirmities. That means He knows I am troubled and in turmoil over this crazy election. He knows it is completely blowing my mind and driving me crazy. I cry out~ Lord is this the best we can do here? Is this the best we got? Surely, Lord ~ you see our options here at best are horrendous. God have mercy on my soul and my land that I love. I am losing sleep over this~ really I am.
Then I read ~ wait ~ hold on. There is more good news.
But thou, O , art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.I cried unto the with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the sustained me.
The Lord is my glory. He is the reason I can lift my head up each day. He hears me out of His holy hill~ that place where My God is still in control of this out of control world. He hears little ol' me. He is the reason I can lay my head down to sleep at night. When I wake up tomorrow He is the one who will sustain me ~keep me going and putting one foot in front of the other. Trusting Him~ obeying Him.
Still need some more?
I will say of the , He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
The God of the Universe ~ He is your refuge. He can be trusted. Even when it looks like all hope is gone. He can deliver us from snares and pestilence~ even phony baloney politicians. He can cover us with his feathers just like a momma bird shields her babies. And under His wing, we are safe and secure.
You get the picture~ I encourage you to keep looking because God has a whole lot of good news ~ we just have to read all about it!
