Hey! How are you doing? I have been a little quiet because life has been a bit hectic over the past couple of days. Sometimes it feels as though there are not enough hours in the day. Kids are back to school. The week before school resumed was very busy as we tried to ensure we had everything ready. As this was happening, i felt extra pressure for me to birth something that God has been laying on my heart. As i tried to juggle kids, chores, work, and the other assignments God has given me, i felt a bit overwhelmed. I didn’t want to come on here to post empty words when i knew i haven’t really been spending time with God as i used to.
Personally i am in a stretching season. I feel stretched more than before. I feel God is pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me take bold steps in the assignment He has given me.
Can you relate to this season? You might not have kids going back to school, it might just be a totally different scenario in your house/life that is making you feel a bit overwhelmed. Do you feel stretched too? Does it feel like you are pregnant with an assignment God wants you to birth? Do you feel like telling God to take it easy with you? Yep. I get it.
You know i opened my bible app yesterday and realised that the verse for yesterday was what i needed. It read;
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
This was what i needed. I needed a reminder for me to be strong and courageous. I needed to be reminded that God wasn’t going to abandon me in the process of me executing His project. I needed to be reminded that God is with me and He is going with me in this journey. As i read this scripture, i took a deep breath, felt at ease and i was able to start working. Seeing the effect this scripture had on me, i thought i should share it with a friend who is going through the stretching season too. The scripture speaks for itself. The words are soothing, comforting and reassuring. Meditate on it today and let it minister to you. Read. Meditate. Breathe and feel at ease 🙂
