“Through All of It”

24 Oct

“There are days I’ve taken more than I can give, and there are choices that I made that I wouldn’t make again

I’ve had my share of laughter, of tears and troubled times 

This has been the story of my life

I have won and I have lost, I got it right sometimes but sometimes I did not, life’s been a journey, I’ve seen joy, I’ve seen regret 

Oh and You have been my God through all of it…”

–“Through All of It” by: Colton Dixon

 
This song has been on my heart the last few days. I was actually listening to it on repeat last night. Don’t you just love songs like that? 

I’ve been filled with a lot of stress and anxiety lately. A lot of it has been all in my head, some not so much. When I’m stressed and anxious I tend to cry and even feel sick at my stomach. It’s just what happens. 

The purpose of this post is not to bring anyone down though. Even though I’ve been stressed and anxious, there have been constant reminders of God’s goodness. 

First, there was an excellent sermon and praise and worship in church Wednesday night. The sermon talked about standing firm and waiting on God. How so often in life we want to fight our own battles against the enemy, but God is fighting for us. He will go before us and fight on our behalf. He is such a good God.

Second, encouragement from my wonderful hubby and family. They listen and give the best advice. They pray for me. I’m so blessed.

Last, but not least, God’s peace. A few scriptures I’m leaning on:

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” ‭‭-1 Peter‬ ‭5:7‬ 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” -Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬ 

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians‬ ‭4:7‬

““I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”” -John‬ ‭16:33‬ 

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” -Ephesians‬ ‭3:20‬ 

And this scripture, which has been an encouragement to me for a very long time:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭

Never forget, no matter what you’re going through in this life, that God will never leave you. He will go before you. He loves you so much and He has a great plan for your life.

Blessings,
