Winsome Wednesday - Not Matter your Feelings....

No matter your feelings, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, go to God's word.

This last week has been a tough one for me emotionally.  No particular reason!  Nothing devastating happened.  Just a number of little things that added up to a BIG "I can't do this anymore" bunch of feelings!

Sigh.... It is amazing the rabbit trails one's mind will go on if you let it.  And eventually, I make my way to the Word.  But my feelings blurred my vision, and my mind was fogged over with emotion.  I was tired, sore, let down, disappointed..... BUT.... you have to persevere until the words on the page stop swirling and you can read what the Lord puts infront of you.

Yesterday, I was at my lowest in this feelings fest of mine and I determined before I went to bed I would just read some pages of God's word because I KNOW that even if there is nothing specific to my situation, His word is God breathed, alive, current, healing, because He loves me.  Just reading His Word will centre me again, will bring my emotions back into balance.

And that is exactly what happened.  I did not read any major revelation.  But my spirit calmed within me, I slept better, I felt hopeful for the morning.  Yes... He restores my soul.
Psalm 74 v 16:  The day is Yours, the night also is Yours;  You have established the starry light and the sun.

My encouragement to you is don't leave going to the word too late.  Get into it as soon as you feel those emotions that want to pull you down.  Yes, push into Him, lean on Him!  Desire and crave Him as your solution and your everything.

God bless
Tracy

  2. You're right, we should seek God's Word to be encouraged and lifted up, but often times, we feel so low or our minds are so fogged up that we don't. Thank you for reminding me to run to His Word when discouragement sets in.

  3. Seek Him first, and last... and everywhere in between. :) Matthew 6;33. And.. when we use His word, as the Sword of the Spirit we cut in two every attack of the enemy.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Blessings,
    Dawn

  4. Good Word... His Word!! Why do we not remember it is the washing of His word that refreshes us when this world gives us more than we can bare.
    I have been blessed by this post as I also have been shocked at the deception that is in the church today! May you have a better day and night as you study and grow in HIM!
    Yours, Roxy

  5. Oh, how I am relating to you, Tracy. "I can't do this anymore" has entered my thoughts several times of late too. I'm so glad we have such a treasure trove of God's words to choose from to calm our souls anytime. Thanks for sharing that you struggle with this too, and that God does deliver.

  7. Amen, Tracy! I've felt kinda down these last few days, too. Just sad, wanting to read the Word but not being able to focus. I've forced myself to do it because I know what you say is true. His word always speaks to us, even if it's just an inward calming of our spirit. Thanks for sharing from your heart - have a blessed week!

  8. Yes, Tracy! Oh, I have had a week, too. And I have found comfort in the words of God. He always finds a way to have me read just the *right* passage.

    I found this last night on a blog:

    "The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest." (Exodus 14:14, AMP)

    So comforting, huh?!

    GOD BLESS!

  10. Why is it that we tend to put off going to God's word when we feel low? Strange, isn't it? But, when we finally make our way there, we always feel better! Thanks for your encouragement to continue to jump into God's word. You are right - it is alive and active and the BEST defense (and offense) against the enemy! Blessings, Joan
