8.21.2021 – When my heart is overwhelmed…

“From the end of the earth I call to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and weak; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I [a rock that is too high to reach without Your help].”—Psalm 61:2 AMP

Heavenly Father… I come running to You this morning. 💔

There is great need in the lives of the people that I know

there is so much heaviness within this world.

The need is overwhelming.

Oh God, the burden is heavy.

The desperation is intense.

Oh God, how we need You.

How we need You as we face each moment, each day.

And God how we need You

in order to be brave.

Let us not be intimidated, God…

no matter what may come our way.

God, You see my tears,

You see my heart,

my concerns,

my fears…

“…For you are my only hope, Lord!”—Psalm 71:5

“So shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.
My soul melts from heaviness;
Strengthen me according to Your word.”—Psalm 119:27-28

…And I feel Your Spirit 🍃

calming these crashing waves of emotion in me.

You sustain me, You make me brave.

And I feel You lifting the burden

that sometimes weighs so heavily.

Thank You, God. 💝

For You have heard my prayers. 🙏

“Lord, you know my prayer before I even whisper it.
    At each and every sunrise you will
    continue to hear my cry until you answer.”—Psalm 88:13

How You sustain, how You lead the way…

…how You make me brave. 💖
