Trusting in God..

Lately, I guess you could say I've felt very overwhelmed with "life".  Don't we all at times?  Whether its with spouses, money, children, neighbors, or anything else we deal with on a daily basis.  I've been guilty of not taking enough time for myself and as a result, had a mini "breakdown" last night from the stress of others (and stress in my own life).  One thing I can say, is how thankful I am to have a Lord and Saviour I can turn to in those dark times in my life.  No matter where I am or what I may be doing, He can comfort me like nobody else can..and give me the best answers too!  After a good cry and alot of talking to God about what was bothering me, I opened my Bible.  To my suprise, out fell a handout from one of our previous church services.  It contained various scriptures, and many felt like they "fit the bill" of what I was needing to hear at that very moment (don't you just love it when God works that way?). 

"Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9.  "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."  John 14:27.  "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6. 

It just showed me that God had been right there with me and was waiting for me to talk to Him about what was bothering me.  Something so simple as a church handout, meant the world to me at that moment.   How wonderful it is to have a God that cares so much for His makes me truely blessed to be "his child"!
