Everyday His Hand in Life
I just stared at my journal looking at the verse I had written down from Psalm 139:5, “You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.” I didn’t believe it. I was feeling sorry for myself, and God felt far away so I slammed my journal shut.
We have a choice on what we think on, and I was making bad choices. I felt my circumstances weren’t fair and I was tired of waiting. I know where the “Poor Me” road leads and so out of obedience I put on fun music and said the verse aloud, “God I trust that You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. I don’t feel it, but I trust you. Help. Amen.” It wasn’t an immediate shift in my attitude but the choice to think on what I knew was true and then names things aloud that I was thankful for, made a difference. The truth is, God loves you right where you’re at, no matter how you’re feeling …everyday.
