“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
These last two nights, I had major anxiety and just collapsed under the pressure. I had a thought in my head. “You have to grow up someday. You will never have free time to draw or paint or do anything you are doing right now.” The weight of grief can be so cold and bitter, and worry is like an arrow in the night. But, let us stop for a moment, look at the truth, and let’s ask ourselves an important question:
If He is the God of truth, and He has never once lied, and everything He says is completely and totally true, then why don’t you trust Him?
Wow! Mind. Blown.
My anxiety lied and I was so wrong! After talking with my Mom about it, she said that was definitely an attack from the enemy. Just think of how it was so perfectly set up: I was alone in my room, watching movies all day, feeling so lame and unappreciated. Wow. I was so deceived!
Why are you not trusting your one, truthful Heavenly Father, your almighty, trustworthy God? You need to ask yourself this: what are you so afraid of, and why?
We, sisters, must be honest with Him if we are ever going to get anywhere in our faith? When we fall, how will we have beauty from ashes of we have nobody to lift us up and make our hearts whole again? When we live our lives without God, thinking that they cannot get any better than they are, how can we realize and confess that we are not adorned with hope?
“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
We, sisters, must be fully honest to our fully honest God. We can never be perfect, and there will never be a time where everyone loves us. But, God accepts and loved you for who you truly are!
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
(Romans 15:7 NIV)
May that be our prayer, and may we be adorned with hope by our almighty Father!
Truthfully, Wholly, Happily,
❤ Hope ❤
