Whatever I Face…He Goes with Me!

When I feel alone, He goes with me!

When I am discouraged, He goes with me!

When I am overwhelmed, He goes with me!

When I feel inadequate for the task at hand, He goes with me!

When I am uncertain of the future, He goes with me!

When I am weary and worn, He goes with me!

When I am facing the unknown, He goes with me!

When the Lord God Most High goes with me, I can be strong and courageous knowing He will never leave or forsake me.  I can rest, not in my own strength and abilities, but secure in God’s powerful presence.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, the plague that stalks in darkness, or the pestilence that ravages at noon. Though a thousand fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, the pestilence will not reach you. You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord — my refuge, the Most High — your dwelling place, no harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent. —Psalm 91:1-9

Whatever I face…He goes with me!

Rejoicing in Jesus!

3 Habits for Cultivating a Sound Mind

A Sound Mind?!?  Yes, please!  Many days I feel just the opposite; “going out of my mind” or “losing my mind” might be a more accurate description. Menopausal, middle-age is beginning to take its toll on my mind.

This morning I squirted shampoo into my body puff—but it worked; my skin had this great Moroccan Oil glow. Yesterday I was heading back to work after lunch and a new billboard for the Whole Foods Market (coming to our area soon) caught my eye. Next thing I know, I’ve passed the church and I’m heading down the road toward Whole Foods.

I’m constantly searching for my glasses only to find them on top of my head.  I walk into a room and can’t remember what I’m doing.

You get the idea. My mind is overtaxed, swirling and often I feel like I’m in a foggy haze.  And I know you don’t have to be menopausal or middle-aged to know what I’m talking about.  I know those of you with babies and young children at home can relate. And those with pre-teen and teens at home can relate.  The point: it’s not confined to a particular season of life.  So who’s with me?  Who’s ready for a sound mind?!

Last week in the Take Heart post, we looked at finding freedom when we are fearful of the future, the uncertain, or the unknown.  Today, I want to continue that discussion as we look at three habits we can cultivate in our lives to help us change our mindset and attitude, to develop a sound mind, and to walk confidently and courageously in Christ.
