Last night was a wonderful evening of prayer at our church, connecting before the Throne, which closed with release and blessing on each person there. I went to bed feeling close to God.
This morning, my body has not been happy to get up. My neck is stiff, I have a headache, my shoulder aches, my tummy churning. But most bothering, a heightened sense of feeling alone. Like I am not never meant to fit in the crowd.
Once I sat down to have some quiet time, God reassured my soul with these words.
- I am never alone. God is ALWAYS with me.
- I don’t have to feel like I fit.
- I am forever His daughter.
- I have a secure place in His Kingdom.
- God has hardwired me to be the exact me for the purposes He is calling me to live out.
My day has been full of ups and downs…ranging from a lovely encouraging text from a gal I go to church with, and laughing at lunch with my son, to behind in paperwork at work and prepping our taxes, with the headache still lurking below the surface.
Through it all, I knew You were with me, for me, in me and around me.
And I couldn’t have made it through this day without You.
So thank You for revealing Yourself again to this appreciative heart. Knowing who I am and how much You care for me is the truth foundation I can run to and unwrap each and again each day.
