Still praise Him, run to Him, show love, be glad, rejoice. Will you do all those if the answer to your current issue/problem is a “no”? No, this isn’t what’s best for you. It’s not what I have for you, that’s BEST.
Grab your mind and throw it towards the Lord. It can be out of control at times, right? During turmoil or confusing life moments, it tempts us to hold onto the worlds standard of what will fill us. Shopping, eating, being busy, being lazy, over exercising, reaching towards material things (idols). They fulfill in us something that gives us a high, but it won’t last. It never will. That’s why we keep searching and why we keep going back to the same cycle. Around and around and around…
Isaiah 54:10 says, “The mountains may disappear, and the hills might come to an end, but my love will never disappear; my promise of peace will not come to an end,”says the Lord. (emphasis and bold made by me)
Does your peace come from the Lord? If not, take the time to ask Him for it, He is a giving and loving Father! And today, just be, no running around trying to fill that hurt inside. All that “stuff” is temporary but our God is a great Father that will fill our every ache and pain to the fullest of what Love is. If you want to feel that love, go serve someone. Visit your grandmother or aunt. Bake cookies for your neighbor. Write a letter. Taking your eyes off self.
1 Corinthians 13:3-7
“If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrifice my body, I could boast about it, but if I didn’t love others I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way it is not irritable, and it keeps no records of being wrong. It does not rejoice about Injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and indoors through every circumstance.”
