There have been a lot of overwhelming days this year, times of feeling trapped, frustrated, anxious, exhausted, and stretched beyond your limit. But please don’t let them stop you. Take another step today, and let that step be in God’s strength. His promises for you are just as amazing as when he first talked with you, and he’d love nothing more than to teach you how to live fully in every one of them, healing, equipping, and empowering you as you go.
Breathe. Slowly and deeply, breathe. Listen for Jesus speak to your heart about everything that’s going on, and about who you get to be through it all. Read the Psalms until you find the one he’s giving you for this season of your life. Let his love strengthen you spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Take a confident step. Everywhere you go, you’re walking in God’s promises.
“Show me Your ways, Lord, and train me to find and follow your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are my God and Savior, and my hope is always in you” (Psalms 25:4-5).
