It’s one of those days. You know the kind. The days where you really want to curl up into a ball on the bed and cry, but you don’t because you know it won’t change anything (and will probably give you a headache and make you feel worse). Instead you choke back the tears, keep going, and cry out to God for HELP!
The girls played outside. I grabbed my Kindle, walked around outside praying Isaiah 12:2, saying over and over, “I will trust and not be afraid.” I took some deep breaths and began reading my Bible in 90 Days reading plan on the Kindle. As I read Micah, I came across this verse:
“But as for me, I am filled with power,
with the Spirit of the LORD,
and with justice and might . . . .”
Micah 3:8 (NIV1984)
I read it, then read it again, and a third time. I have gone back to it many times this afternoon. When I read it, I stand up straighter, hold my chin up, and realize that I’m a victor! Because of Him, I am not defeated, regardless of my current circumstances. My Daddy God already has it all worked out. Even the tough, yucky stuff is going to turn out for my good.
If that doesn’t lift your mood, what will?
What verses do you turn to when you need a reality check?
