ok so its been awhile since i’ve posted. Lots has been going on lately. I’ve got a new job, which i really like. Brandon and I went to Ohio, then on to Maryland. Brandon got a job at the Chapel, yippie! My parents got a new car, thanks BJ. I’ve been housesitting. Things have been a bit crazy for the past few weeks. But I know its good for me.
Yesterday was a good day. I got up around 9, took the dog out, and then came home and just chilled. Then Brandon and I were going to go on a long bike ride, but by the time he got up and I got out there it was about 3. So, we really didnt have time to go on a long ride, we only went on one around his block. I didnt even make it 10 minutes into the ride. I am so dang out of shape. So we decided to go back and get ready for FUSE last night, but by that time it was almost 5 and we were supposed to be there at 5. Neither of us had taken a shower for the day, needless to say, i was upset and feeling like nothing was going right… Satan was definately attacking me. and i was listening. So I finally get to FUSE after grocery shopping and spilling cookies at Jewel, and i was really overwhelmed. Everyone was heading outside to play, but I decided to stay inside and pray. That did me a ton of good! I was really encouraged.
This is the verse i came across:
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
It was really cool how God brought those verses to me and i was good after that. I had a cry, and told God i couldnt do it. He knew i couldnt and thats what makes all the difference. Sometimes we just need to admit to God that we cant do it on our own, then he’ll come and he’ll pick you up. But not until you admit that you need help. Sometimes he’ll pick you up before you ask, but most times you just need to call out to him and he’ll dive in for the rescue.
so thats my post. let go and let God!
