Good morning! Well we had a good weekend. I've been struggling with negative thinking and toxic thoughts this morning though. My mind felt out of control. Anybody ever feel that way? I felt like I had not strength to fight the negative thoughts and lies that were coming into my mind. I would pray but they would just keep coming. I started my quiet time with Jesus this morning still struggling to pray and connect. I put on my worship playlist I made and I started breaking through. Listening and singing to worship music, singing God's praises is so healing. This came just in time! As I just listened my mind started to calm down and just focus on the words. Then the words if God is with us what can stand against us came. The things I was struggling with started popping in my head. Confusion, anxiety, fear, depression, and the biggest...unrest. There was no peace in my mind. These things cannot stand against me...because God is with me. He is always with me. He is with everyone, you just have to acknowledge He's there. It's amazing how when you start singing praises to God you start feeling stronger, you feel closer to Him and you feel that rest you've been needing. As I'm typing I'm listening to a song that repeats a verse in the Bible. I will remain confident in this, I will see the goodness of the Lord. Psalm 27:13 "I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living." If you're having a morning like I was try praying and just listening to some music that praises God. Pour your heart out to Him. He's listening. This is one of my favorite songs. It's by Kari Jobe. http://youtu.be/YQnBvUiAGsI Copy and paste the link into you address bar and have a listen. :) Thanks for letting me spill my emotions out to you guys this morning!
