Sunday Scripture vol. 4

Happy Sunday friends! This scripture just touched me so much this week and I hope y’all don’t mind me spilling my heart!

As I mentioned on Friday, I’ve been in the interview process for two potential promotions at my job, and I found out on Friday that I didn’t get either job- and y’all it hit me really hard. Like totally pity party (maybe some tears) at my desk hard. And then my amazing support system reminded me that the big guy upstairs has my back & it reminded me of the verse I read this week.

To give you a little context, the psalmist is crying out to God about how hard his life is- he’s entrenched in sin, he’s in pain, weary, and cannot see a way out. And then following the dialogue outlining his troubles he says, “but as for me, I trust in you o Lord.” And you know what I wrote in the margins of my bible. “Let this be my response in times of trouble.”

Wow! Our big and mighty God just KNEW that I was going to need the encouragement and truth this week and he delivered it before I even knew i needed it. So if this is you, and you need some encouragement, know that He has you in his hands and he is crafting a future that you and I are going to marvel at! The pain of today will be forgotten and our temporary sadness will pale when we see what he has in store!

Love y’all so much and hope you have a great sense of peace as you head into this week!

    Thank you so much for sharing this post! I have been feeling defeated here and there lately, like things aren’t going how I want them to, but you’re right that HE has plans for the future.
