So, I went to church last Sunday and they emphasized three things, one of which was daily time with God. So, I thought I’d pick up my Bible again and start reading where I had left off.
It’s amazing how God speaks to your heart when you’re open and ready. I’m in the book of Isaiah, chapter 49. These words jumped out at me from different verses:
“Before I was born the Lord called me…what is due me is in the Lord’s hand, and my reward is with my God….I will not forget you!…those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”
These are the exact words I needed to hear. As Christians, I think we all need to know that God is with us, He sees us and all we are going through, He hasn’t forgotten us, and there is hope when we can’t see it.
There’s a Christian song that just came out that so speaks to my heart right now. It’s called, “The Words I Would Say” by the Sidewalk Prophets. The words that keep repeating over and over in my mind are:
“Be strong in the Lord and never give up hope,
You’re gonna do great things, I already know,
God’s got his hands on you, so don’t live life in fear,
Forgive and forget but don’t forget why you’re here,
Take your time and pray.”
I think of this song a lot, especially when those rejections keep cropping up in my inbox. I’m reminded to keep working, keep striving and God will do the rest. That’s all we can really do anyways. Pray, Ask, Receive, and keep on living.
