Since I returned from visiting friends at the end of August my head has been doing a real number on me.
Nuts of unconfidence, what if’s, if only’s and comparison bringing discouragement and unsettledness.
With a day off booked and some alone time. No excuses I wanted to start in prayer. As my head was wandering I put some worship songs on You Tube in the hope of focusing.
As I was praying the song at that came on was Shoulders (link at the bottom) by King and Country. I hadn’t heard it before.
In the song Shoulders they keep singing “my help comes from you” meaning God.
Yes! That is what I needed to hear, to be reminded off. I listened to the song 3 times and my head cleared and I wanted to continue and lean on prayer as I really need God’s help to just bring joy.
As I opened my prayer journal. The bible verse on the page I am on is from Psalm 121:2
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earthPsalm 121:2
Wow God really does give you what you need when you need it.
It is time to stop be still and let God administer. He has given me the word I need. I can’t ignore it. I have to lean in on it and I may not get the answers I want but I will get everything I need.
Today and always my strength comes from the Lord.
What do you need today. Take some quiet time out with God to let him provide and remind you of the answers you need.
