Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: April 18, 2021

You’re not drowning, I’m calling you into the deep daughter. Really, it felt like drowning to me. The water coming over me was a perfect analogy with some of the migraine symptoms as they overtake me. Almost as if being submerged in water, burning in my right eye, extreme pressure, only we are going to add an ice pic going through my eye. I’m drawing you into the deep- God is not detoured when our “human” side of fears and pain kicks in. He sees what we can’t. He continues to give me a word and calming waters start to flow over me and wash away the tears that were flowing from my eyes. I was reading this evening on key words that my Father had given me and found today’s verse. Waves of life might overtake us, but sometimes they overtake us for the Lord to pull us in deeper to Him. Don’t miss out on that! I’m listening Poppa, I’m listening. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.” ~ Psalm 42:7

As I was reading for a verse this morning, today’s just kept coming back to me. There is a tired that only the Lord can give rest for, a weariness that He alone can replenish. I came hone from the neurologist yesterday disappointed at the very high increase in migraines I am having. I sat on my bed and cried for seemingly forever, Poppa, I don’t know how to eliminate my trigger: stress. I stress over everyone and everything. I take on things that aren’t even mine to take on. I put stress on myself in every single area of my life. Rest in Me daughter. Rest in Me. I spent the rest of the evening just resting and the headache faded until the late night when my mind tried to pick it all back up again. This is going to be a long process for this daughter, resting doesn’t come easy! Leaving at His feet after I’ve given to Him doesn’t either!! Help me Poppa and thank You for Your grace!!! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.” ~ Jeremiah 31:25

Our Father always knows what we need and my Poppa sure knew my heart needed reminded of today’s verses, they are indeed nourishment for your soul and mind! As I looked at my headache numbers today at the Dr.’s office, I was reminded I can’t do things on my own. My trust and hope must be in the Lord. This weight of worry and stress that I carry about everything and everyone is just too much for me to bear, but my Father’s shoulders were made to carry it. Oh that second verse, I claim it. “… her leaf shall be green…” That just struck me. The stress, these headaches are draining my life and my very color and that is not how it is to be. Thank You Poppa for this on-time word for your daughter! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“7 Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and [that] spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” ~ Jeremiah 17:7-8

There is a way that is right before the Lord. Our Father gives a wisdom that is beyond the world’s comprehension. Seek Him in all things and you will not only prosper, but a peace will flow that the world can’t touch. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.” ~ Hosea 14:9

So much of the battle the enemy wages with us is in our mind. It starts with a “simple” thought and we take that thought and expand on it and beat that thing to death. That thought becomes a huge unbeatable monster in our head. We need to change our thought patterns. I’m speaking to myself, stepping in my own toes! We need to take today’s verse to heart and think on these things continuously. When those thoughts from the enemy arise, strike them down and think on these, yes these things! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.” ~ Philippians 4:8

It seems in today’s society right is often labeled wrong or those upholding the statues of the Lord are judged harshly, hold them anyways. Help me Poppa to walk in Your ways and to be the woman of God You would have me to be. I am so far from perfect and I am thankful for a merciful God that loves me and gives me grace in this walk with Him. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.” ~ Psalm 119:80

It doesn’t matter what anyone does to you, let it go child of God. Focus on the path before you and meditate on the precepts of God. Your Father sees and hear even the things we don’t and He fights on our behalf, we only need to trust in Him and keep pressing! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: [but] I will meditate in thy precepts.” ~ Psalm 119:78

Thank You Poppa for your tender mercies. I am so far from perfect yet you still lovingly correct and keep me on that path you have set before me. You renew my mind daily and strengthen me for the journey ahead. I delight in Your laws and Your ways for they are so much better than those ways I’ve tried and failed on my own. My life is more abundant through you and anything else whispered in my ears are lies from the devil. I will be a shining light for you this season, chasing the darkness away. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law [is] my delight.” ~ Psalm 119:77

Life throws you some deep waters and hot flames. This verse doesn’t sugar coat it and tell you those times won’t exist, but it does tell you the waters won’t overflow (or overtake you ) and the fires aren’t going to burn (or consume) you. When you are a child of God, you walk with favor. You walk with His hand resting upon you. The waters may get deep and the flames may get hot, but your Father is still in control and these are merely opportunities to build your faith. What you see with the physical eye isn’t a reflection of what is going on in the spiritual realm. Don’t lose heart and don’t give up. Press on and press in, your Poppa’s got you. Any other thought is a lie from a devil, trust your Father. He’s got you! ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” ~ Isaiah 43:2
