I cannot seem to shake this overwhelmed feeling that I have had for the last couple of weeks. I would not say that I am completely depressed (my medication for PTSD and anxiety help with that) but just feel like there is a cloud hovering over me everyday as I am faced with the reality that Tori’s disability is always going to be there (unless God decides to heal her) and how often she falls and is off balance. Lord please help me to rely completely on you for peace and strength. I cast all of my cares on you and know that you care for me and Tori and have a plan for our family. Take these burdens from me Lord for I know that you are in control!
Here are the verses I am reading today.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] (Matthew 11:28 AMP)
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. (1 Peter 5:7 AMP)
For I know the thoughts and plans that have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP)
Blessed and enviably happy [with a happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace] are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted! (Matthew 5:4 AMP)
Thank you Lord for your Word and the encouragement it brings to my soul! Help me live beyond my human feeling and emotions! I feel better already…
