Remind Me Oh Lord…

This blog site that you’re reading is the place where I stepped out in obedience to the Father several years ago to share my journey of discovering that He is enough, even if our worst nightmare becomes our reality. So when I woke up around 4:00 am this morning unable to go back to sleep because of the overwhelming truth that someone I loved so very much took her last breath on earth yesterday after giving birth to her precious baby boy just a few short days ago and another friend’s daughter is fighting for her life in an ICU unit without any family by her side because of this crazy battle against COVID-19 (Corona virus) that our entire world is facing right now, I had to get out of bed and fall on my face before Him and beg Him to remind me. To remind my broken heart that He is The Healer even if the healing doesn’t come this side of Heaven. He is the Peace that surpasses understanding even if my story isn’t turning out like I had imagined. He is my strength even if my grief feels as though it will consume me. He is the supply of my EVERY need in EVERY situation. Him and Him alone. It is on days like this I am thankful for a God that will remind my shattered heart that I can trust with everything in me that He will take what the enemy meant for evil and use it for good…the saving of many lives (Genesis 50:20). I pray He will continue to remind me on the days ahead, that may be filled with more than my human heart can bear, that I can always trust that He is enough, EVEN IF…

Here are a few of the promises the Lord whispered across my soul today. Maybe there is someone who is reading this that needs to be reminded of these promises as well…

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Isaiah 41:10-13 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”

1 Chronicles 28:20 Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished.

Romans 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Psalm 73:23-26 Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Here is the song He so sweetly sang over me this morning…
