In my Hardest Moments

You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But the LORD kept me moving…
But You, O GOD the Lord, Deal with me for Your name's sake; Because Your mercy [is] good, deliver me. (Psalm 109-21)

At times, I've wanted to lash out at those, whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD your God you shall fear…
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. (Mat 5:44)

At times, I have been worried about my future,
God my Lord reassures me…
"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? (Mat 6:25)

When I feel powerless in this world,
God tells me…
And I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall; And they will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you; For I [am] with you to save you And deliver you," says the LORD. (Jer 15:20)

When I thought I would fall,
My God keeps me up…
For I will surely deliver you, and you shall not fall by the sword; but your life shall be as a prize to you, because you have put your trust in Me," says the LORD.' "(Jer 39:18)

At times fear takes over me,
But I’m not alone…
For I, the LORD your God will hold your right hand, Saying to you, 'Fear not, I will help you.' (Isaiah 41:13)

There are times when I don’t know what to say,
God gives me the words…
Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. (Jer 1:9)

When I thought I was weak,
He keeps me strong…
And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2Cr 12:9)

At times I feel empty,
But the Lord fills me up…
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.

And I can go on and on…but I know that the love of God for us is infinite,
Every time our human emotions take over, we always can count with God’s word.
God’s word is better that any anti-depressant the doctor can prescribe…Only IF you have enough Faith in God's Word ♥ ♥
