Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will keep your foot from being snared. – Proverbs 3:25-26
I have a lot of fear. I am afraid that I’m such a people pleaser that I won’t be able to take care of Jacob sometimes because I am so caught up in pleasing other people that I no longer have anything left to give.
I felt burnt out, exhausted and overwhelmed after my COVID-19 diagnosis.
It is a scary feeling to have no energy, not even enough strength to get up.
It felt like I was powerless when my energy plummeted during the third week of my COVID-19 recovery.
The Lord did not want me to feel this way. He wants us to walk in light, not in darkness.
He can calm the storm, any disaster, be it a raging wildfire, a pandemic, or a mental meltdown.
Our anger is to protect us, to tell us that something is wrong and that something needs to change.
Jesus asks us to choose life. We need to have the confidence to follow His lead when everything seems to be wrong and nothing seems to be right.
He loves us more than life itself. He wants us to be free.
We just need to accept it.
