Great words, good timing
Yesterday I began reading a devotional book, “The Upper Room” that my mom put in a vacation goody bag for P and I. I have always enjoyed including daily devotional/reflection time with God. The past few years I have not been active at all in devoting time for this.
After reading the The Upper Room I switched over to another devotional book, “My Utmost for His Highest”. I had the anxious feeling still looming over me like I did from the day before. The first devotional was great to ready but didn’t really sooth the anxious feelings. I didn’t have much hope that the second devotional would offer much comfort, but then I got towards the end and it read
“Let not your heart be troubled”. God will not keep your heart from being troubled. It is a command- “Let not…” Haul yourself up a hundred and one times a day in order to do it…..
I felt that I got direct words from God. What great words and great timing for these words to enter my mind. I took it in and realized that the anxious feelings will probably come and go, but I need to heed these words, multiple times a day if necessary and release my anxiety. I felt a lot of relief after this devotional time.
I’m so glad you were able to find some comfort in those words…
I hope you had a nice beach weekend!
