We all have hills and valleys. The bible talks about them. So if it talks about them, then you know your going to have them.
As I walk through this valley, my emotions want to hold onto the feelings of hurt, rejection and anger. My mind wants to replay the hurt over and over again. Yet, I know the word says to renew my mind with the word of God. Why? Because in Psalms he says over and over again that HE WILL deliver me. Deliver me from the hurt.. Deliver me from the pain.. Deliver me from who hurt me..
"Thou shalt hide him (me) in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man..Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing:thou hast put off my sackcloth and girdeth me with gladness.. The righteous cry and The Lord heareth and delivereth me out of ALL my troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them (me) that are a broken heart."
Once I begin meditating on Gods word, the situation changes. I begin to put God first and my heartache last. My mind and heart have to follow because Gods word is priority over everything. So it comes down to this.. Do I believe God enough to deal with this situation or do I think I can do it?
I've been down before.. But not once did God forsake me, even when I chose my own path. So this time again, you bet I'm believing and trusting him to hold my hand as I walk through this valley..... Just for for thought
