When my heart is overwhelmed....

This has been a hard week.....and would be tempted to say a bad week if I didn't know the Lord was in control. One difficult thing after another has happened, and I can't remember another time where there have so many reasons to drive us to our knees. I'm ashamed to admit I've given in to stress and fear at times.....and was reminded of this quote I shared on facebook recently from this blog:

"When I surrender to stress; don’t I advertise the unreliability of God?"

So today I'm thankful that the Lord is in control, and that I know He is working all these circumstances for His glory and our good. That He provides and cares for us, that He loves us. I'm especially thankful for this sermon from our prayer meeting last night on Psalm 61. Among other things we were reminded that these trials that bring us into the Valley of Humiliation are actually a blessing as they are the means that drive us to Christ. I've found that to be true......

"Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame.... For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee"
Verses from Isaiah 54

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
