It will be well..

He set my feet upon a rock, steadying my footsteps and establishing my path. Psalm 40:2b AMP

2018 came in with a vengeance. On top of seeing snow in unexpected places this year, we have seen a number of tragedies, deaths, illnesses, among other life-altering challenges. It’s almost as if the bottom fell out and many of you find yourselves trying to find sure footing again. Is there a place of certainty that I can find rest? Is there hope for me, my family, and our future?

Even in this moment of transition I speak peace to the weary souls that are at a place of turmoil. I speak rest to your minds from the anxious toil. Cease striving trying to figure it all out and rest in the unfailing love of the Father; for He gives rest to His beloved.

We must learn to accept His sovereignty and receive His grace. There are situations we will never be able to understand. We are to trust that God has it all under control and He is working it all together for our good. He will also reveal His plan as time unfolds.

2nd Corinthians 12:9 encourages us to rely on the grace of God; “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Paul wanted God to remove the problems he faced because they seemed too much for him to bear, but God knowing all too well the purpose of those trials encouraged Him that His power was all He needed.

I challenge you today as you read this to take a step back and ask God to help you see your situation through His eyes. In times like these we need Him to broaden our perspective. As He does take comfort in the rest that He has already provided; be still my friend and know that He is God. There is nothing too hard for our God to handle. When everything around you is shaking, He is a firm foundation. He is the rock of ages. He knows how to steady you and establish your footing on solid ground.

Father, teach me to rest in your unfailing love. I admit I get lost trying to find my way through life’s ups and downs. I don’t always know where to go or what to think. I don’t always know what to do, but you do. May I take comfort in knowing that Your purposes for me will be fulfilled. There is nothing that I will encounter that can separate me from Your love. Thank you, Father. In Jesus’s name Amen.

 

Grace and Peace,

Don’t you forget!

I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this. Psalms 139:14 GW

​When you know your worth, your value and your truth you begin to set proper boundaries around your life.

Father thank you for teaching me to recognize that I am of much value. Sometimes I lose sight of who I am in the midst of being everything to everyone else. Help me to see myself through Your eyes. Help me to see that I lose valuable ground
when I refuse to set up boundaries around myself and my life. Teach me to recognize when I am in error. Teach me to recognize when it is time to say no and pull back. Teach me to recognize the people you have called to my life in this season. Help me to recognize those that are depleting my energy and my resources instead of adding to me. Thank you for giving me the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to recognize what is important for me in this season of my life.

Reflection: How can you regain control of your life,  yourself at this current moment? 

Grace and Peace,

Mary
