I can feel it. I can feel all of it. Lord help me feel less, worry less. Yes, it was how I was created but it’s difficult. Life can feel like a struggle where tiny things add up to something that feels a lot like… failure. I am a small girl and it is too much to carry. I am accountable to be a good friend, a future wife, a go-to employee. My heart races when I’m trying to relax because I feel like I should be doing more. On a night without plans, I feel my heart beat heavy. I even feel it right now. I don’t want to feel so much.
My feelings aren’t truth. I know my Truth! I know it’s in the book that is in my lap. I know it! Why then is this happening to me. I take these moments to breathe, wipe the tears off my wet face, and read the Word that tells me who I am.
Romans 8:16-18 “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
