I am really struggling, friends. Health wise. Emotionally. But I come before today, so we can sit with one of the verses from this past week’s passage: Verse 6.
Our God is so great and high and mighty, that He is: over all, through all, and in all. There is no one like our God. I want to remind us to keep drawing nearer to the One True God through His One and Only Son Jesus Christ who came and died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the third day.
Our God who is over the Corona virus and the restrictions/lockdowns we are given as a result.
He is above the fireworks or even the terrifying thoughts that feel even louder for those with mental health concerns (and maybe even for those without the diagnosed or realized mental health concerns).
He is working through this pandemic, scary as it might be. Many are seeing His hands working in amazing ways – despite the restrictions.
He is in the details. He is so good. He is doing a beautiful good work in you and me, as we take each step closer to Him and our beloved Savior!
He is keeping us safely tucked in His arms. He will keep us safe. While this is true, this doesn’t mean I have thrown away my mental health (or any other) medications. Because, God can use these things to help me.
This is the Scripture my heart has clung to this week, as I have rested and made it through yet another PTSD and POTS flare week. Below, you can find a couple of my favorite translations of it to pour over your hearts this morning.
“One God and Father of all, who is over all, in all, and living through all (NLT).”
“And we all have the same God and Father who is over us all and in us all, and living through every part of us (TLB).”
“And He is the perfect Father who leads us all, works through us all, and lives in us all! (TPT)”
Oh friends. . . our world is crazy and unpredictable, but we can trust the One True God who is the One leading us!
