Those can be easy things to say. They can be hard to believe and do sometimes. Right?
I know that Satan will work his hardest against us when we are closest to God–to serving Him, loving Him, living IN Him. And last week several things popped up that shook me, hard. That made me wonder if I am parenting correctly and if I am doing the right thing with this ministry–or do I need to work doing something that will support my family–help us clear some debt and pay for insurance. Tricky tricky stuff.
But several things happened to help strengthen me:
I prayed directly to God for a bubble of protection and gave Him one worry completely. And it WORKED. I felt immediate peace and I knew that He was large and in charge. I could give it up.
As for the financial situation, no answers yet. But, He made it evident through several people that I am supposed to be creating and spreading my art. That it is touching people and leading them to Him and His community. I am doing what He wants.
I do feel like God is going to provide. I don’t know how. But I feel it. I feel courage in my heart. I feel strength in the hope of my Savior.
My hope is that you are able to find strength and courage in your heart today. I pray that God will fill each of you with a sense of peace and love that goes beyond understanding.
