I have allowed all the craziness happening in my life to interrupt my writing my blog. For this, I am truly sorry! It has been difficult to concentrate on the things I want to share. So many of my friends and family have been affected by the chaos and challenges facing all of us. However, I reminded myself that I needed to concentrate on doing what my Heavenly Father leads me to do. I want to record my memories for my family and friends to have when I am gone!
Sometimes I have a day that I call one of “those days.” You know, those days when you’d rather go back to bed, pull the covers over your head, and just stay there. On those days, when I feel sad, I talk to God because He is always available, always there for me, even when I feel alone. When I talk to Him, I remember things I know to be true, like how much He loves me, that I belong to Him, and that He will never leave me.
Most days, my feelings tell me I am loved and Jesus is with me; however, at times, they lie and tell me I’m on my own and alone. The feelings I have can never change the truth. Jesus hasn’t left me, even when I sometimes can’t feel Him. Ephesians 2:13 says that even though I may feel a certain way, because Jesus died for me, He is near to me . . . always. His forgiveness for my sins makes that possible. Therefore, on the hard days, when my emotions try to push me down, I can choose to remind my heart of the truth, I belong to Jesus and nothing can change that.
I want you to know you belong to Jesus no matter how you feel. Always tell Jesus what is happening in your heart and how you need Him to come and help you right now. When you are feeling happy, thank Him!
God, thank You for sending Jesus to die for my sins so that I can be near You. You forgive me for my sins, and nothing can push me away from You, not even my crazy feelings. In Jesus’s Holy Name, Amen.
