Scripture

Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Psalm 42:11 NIV

Reflection

We are all tested. Scenarios will always be presented where our judgment will come to question.

Are we spiritually mature and tough enough?

Sometimes we will be tested through our loved ones—friends and yes, family—for many of us this test comes mostly from family. How do we respond? Do we release it all to God or do we struggle to try and fix things on our own, and then wonder why matters only get worse?

If things are not right in your life pray to God to reveal all—then look in the mirror and look within yourself—and you will see the culprit, and the answer to why things aren’t going the way they should.

God doesn’t do chaos and disorder, only order, structure, and peace. We must fall in line to receive the life we’re supposed to have, and we must do it with hope, humility, passion and appreciation.

When we continue to follow Jesus to serve God there is constant peace even in turmoil, because we know from Whom we belong.

Pray for the way and the right turns each step on your path. Pray that God touches those around you so that they lean on Him and not on you.

Prayer

Father give me the strength to endure and persevere during the worst of times. Give me the patience to wait, listen, and gain the guidance I need from You and Jesus.

Fill me with the grace to handle all situations without showing and expressing anything but Your light. Pour Your loving light into me so that I can only reflect Your love in my fullness. Equip me with the tools to work through any circumstance. Turn me from all negativity.

Help me to stop being a leaning post for others, but rather let me serve as an ambassador that guides them to You through Jesus.

Help me Father. Touch me to my core so that my foundation is unshakeable. Thanking You now Father. Amen.

Love,

Natasha
