WHEN YOU FEEL DISCOURAGED.
When you feel discouraged, what do you do? Who do you turn to? What do you look for for comfort and rescue?
Y'all already know that last month was full of challenges, both in my faith, work, and personal life. And that, well, I didn't necessarily handle it with the most grace, either. More often than not I would come home from work frustrated, tired, and discouraged. There were the ugly moments when I would vent and complain. And the moments when I would question why I working where I am,
Let's just say that those were not my finest moments. I'm by no means proud of those moments, but they happened and it was because of them that I changed, and grew, and believed in Him even more.
I was reading through SheReadsTruth and read through Luke 12, where Jesus reminds His people that they are of great value to Him and that He knows the number of hairs on our heads, knows what we need when we need it, and are of more value than the sparrows He created.
And that's when I realized that it doesn't matter what people say or don't say. It doesn't matter what people do or don't do. It's all about Him. That's where my value lies. That's where true love is. And that's where I can rest.
So note to (future) self: when you're weary and discouraged, tired and worn, turn to Him.
