The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills.
Does life have a tendency to weigh heavy on you at times? I know there are times that I feel like sometimes life can be overwhelming and sometimes when you think you finally have it all figured out you get something else dropped in your lap. Life is very often like that and it is actually like that for everyone, you are not alone. We don’t have to let it get the best of us though ladies because we have the Lord for our strength, now before you close me out because you think that sounds so cliché and hokey religious listen for a second. How you look at your struggles will often determine the outcome! If you rely on yourself for all the answers then you are taking on more than is yours to take on. I know this because quite often I feel the need to not only take care of my problems but I take on the stress of my children’s problems or my siblings and even my mother in-laws problems and that is so typical of us as women, we take on the world’s struggles around us and then wonder why we feel overwhelmed. I am not saying that we should never help or take on other’s burdens; we just need to be sure that it is something God has led us to help with because sometimes those people we love need to trust in Him instead of you.
Now, when it comes to your own personal struggles know that you are not alone! God is right by your side, He knows every tear you have cried and He wants His best for you. If you take this on by yourself then the weight is on your shoulders and it can be too heavy because He never meant for you to carry it. The more you learn to trust Him in everything the more peace you will have in your storms of life. I love the song by Chris Tomlin “Our God is Greater” , I love the words: “Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other, Our God is Healer, AWESOME IN POWER, Our God, Our God.” When you are feeling as though you just can’t take any more, well preferably before you feel like that, I would encourage you to have some songs like this one handy to listen to, to remind you of who is on your side. Life is hard at times and that can’t be taken lightly, but you will make it to the other side and you will be more like Him for the experience. Always remember; the best is yet to come and God knows what that is for you so trust Him today to bring you through to the other side, allow Him to be your comfort and strength today and to give you the wisdom you need for your situation. Also remember to be an encourager to others because seriously everyone is having a tough time.
