“For nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37 ESV)

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1 ESV)

I read this while searching for scriptures.: “faith is what gives us the courage to keep going when we feel overwhelmed.”
This world can make a person feel overwhelmed pretty easily. If it wasn’t for my faith in Jesus, I would curl up in a ball and hide. But because of my faith, I can keep going. Why, you ask? Because of the strength I get from Jesus. When I feel weak, I can lean on Him for strength. The same thing when i feel alone or abandoned.

By leaning on the rock that is Jesus, I can find rest. Jesus will guide and protect me when I lose my way. He fights my battles for me. I just have to be still and let Him. Jesus goes ahead of me, clearing the way for me.

I would be a mess if i had to fight these battles alone. There is no way I can do that without the help of Jesus. He is my rock, my protector, my provider and my friend. Jesus loves me and I love Him. Nothing can separate my love for Him or His love for me. Since giving my life to Jesus, I am calmer, for the most part.

I have my days, but we all do. We all gripe and groan but sometimes it gets really old listening to the same thing over and over. So I have decided to move on. I am going to cut back or try to eliminate most of the stressors in my life. It’s exhausting trying to keep up a civil front sometimes. But it’s time for me to refocus my life back to where it should be. On Jesus!

So no matter what is going on in your life, turn it over to Jesus and then let it go. That is my plan from today on. No matter what it is, health, friends, family or finances, I turn it over to Jesus to sort out. Take over Jesus. The ball is in Your court, so to speak!

Have a blessed day.
