So it's been a trying few months for many, many reasons......
each day feeling the weight of it,
I'll jump to the point.
The day came where I thought,
I'm at my limit...
Feeling like I'd been drowning and just then realized it...
I needed a life preserver, yesterday!
A sweet friend shared an amazing devotional with me,
I felt lighter after I read it.
I was hopeful and felt some relief.
The next morning in the shower,
I heard myself ;
It's not about you debi.
Take the focus off you and put it back on God.
He is my life preserver.
This isn't the first time and likely won't be the last time I have
to remind myself of this.
After my shower I couldn't wait to get to my favorite devotional,
It's not by chance, this is what I read....
" I am training you to be aware of Me at all times. Your assignment is to
collaborate with Me in this training process......
Your mind goes off in tangents from its holy Center, time after time.
Do not be alarmed by your inability to remain focused on Me.
Simply bring your thoughts gently back to Me each time they wander.
The quickest way to redirect your mind to me is to whisper My name."
"Peace I leave you: my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
The Peace I give is sufficient for you.
Occasionally I need to remind myself,
it's not about me.
When I make it about me,
my peace is lost........
I so hope you were waiting to hear the same....
that hope, is what echos from my heart today.
