The enemy really tried to still my peace today. Anything that could go wrong seemed to be trying to do it. I found myself irritated, snapping at the computer (that can’t even snap back) and people that generally show no mercy nor have any understanding in them. The day ended and I sat on my bed thankful on one hand just to have made it through it and troubled on the other because my heart was truly sorry for being snappy and even though I’d apologized I knew I wouldn’t find forgiveness anytime soon. Where did I go wrong Poppa?
“28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. 29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. 30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.” Psalms 107:28-30 Ahhhh… It all came into focus. I tried to do it all alone. I was worried about April. During my lunch break, I had read something that troubled my spirit just before clocking back in. One thing toppled upon another and I didn’t ask my Poppa for help. Then that pile started to tumble and I began to grumble. Had I cried out to the Lord and said the water is starting to overtake me, He could have calmed the waters. But I didn’t.
Too often, most often, I try to do it all alone. God is saying you don’t have to do that daughter! Cry unto Me and I will bring you out of that distress! The waters never have to cause a panic. They should never get high enough to snap or fear losing control. All I have to do is say help, I’m losing it. All I have to do is claim peace in the name of Jesus. Boy, I needed these verses tonight and my Poppa knew it. Perhaps you did to. Whatever you are facing, cry out to God and expect Him to quiet the storm! Faith in action. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
