Good day people
I hope that this post meets you well? In today’s write up I desire to share my feelings with you in REAL TIME. This week has been fairly challenging for me, and the stress is literally showing on my face…Acne galore. I’d like to clarify that I plan on being really open regarding my emotional journey, this week.
So for the past couple of days, I’ve had EXTREME baby fever. Tbh I strongly believe that it has something to do with my hormones (I’m ovulating). But that’s a story for another post. [In the future I plan to write on how to stand firm, by not allowing our desires, and feelings take hold of our lives (become stumbling blocks)]. Also having to prepare for an interview further increased my stress levels. Concerns of wether I was willing to take a big pay cut, plagued my mind.
For a short while I’ve also felt frustrated, and annoyed over the fact that I still haven’t found ‘the one’, which triggered a series of other thoughts, such as why do I feel so jaded in my job etc. Honestly these mind attacks come so thick and fast, but I’m very aware of the devil’s tactics to discourage me. Then I began worrying about what others thought about my single state. And I KNOW that it’s not wise to waste time worrying about what others think about you, but I gradually found myself doing just that. I never pictured still being single at this point in my life, and began to question if I was doing anything wrong? This moved me to pray to God for help. I desperately needed His comfort in that moment, I needed to hear from Him. And guess what……………..I DID 😅!
Psalm 130:1 ~ “From the depths of despair, O Lord, I call for your help.”
^^^ This was literally me, in my bed, Wednesday afternoon/evening. In the midst of despair call upon God for help! This is the best thing one could ever do!
Psalm 130:5 ~ “I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.”
^^^ Count on God, and believe that He is able! Believe that He will ALWAYS, come through at just the right time. Trust in His word, and never lose hope.
In conclusion I’d like to share the word of encouragement, I received from God on Wednesday evening (a rhema word)! And I am VERY excited to do so! This took place as I read my one year bible reading plan, and I believe that this word can also encourage other’s too.
Joel 2:17 ~ “Let the priests, who minister in the Lord’s presence, stand and weep between the entry room to the Temple and the altar. Let them pray, “Spare your people, Lord! Don’t let your special possession become an object of mockery. Don’t let them become a joke for unbelieving foreigners who say, ‘Has the God of Israel left them?”
^^^ God will not let me become an object of mockery to those around me, therefore I should not feel ashamed about being single. God has not abandoned me, and my life will be a testament of His great power. And because I have a loving God who will always take care of me, my life is NOT a joke.
People don’t deem yourself as mockable, for being unmarried.
Joel 2:18 ~ “Then the Lord will pity his people and jealously guard the honor of his land.”
^^^ I serve a compassionate God who will continually guard me with His strength, and power. In the midst of my trials I will trust Him.
I hope that you enjoyed today’s read, and I pray that we all spend less time worrying about what others think, and MORE TIME LIVING TO PLEASE GOD.
