My stress level is through the roof. Overwhelmed. Anxious. Exhausted.
So I did what I am supposed to do. What I have to do each morning. I got down and looked up.
Psalm 107:13-15 became my own this morning.
13 Then I cried to the LORD in my trouble,
and he saved me from my distress.
14 He brought me out of my darkness and the deepest pit
and broke away all my chains.
15 I give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for me!
I have felt such a change in my prayer life since I started making scripture my own. Praying it in the first person. The Susan person. Inserting my own name, my own darkness and my deepest pits. I encourage you to do the same. He is so very good. He WILL answer. He WILL bless you.
He has me.
