Get A Grip!

Recently I started reading Jennifer Dukes Lee blog . . . Getting Down With Jesus. You can go there by clicking her button on my sidebar. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Jennifer has told something that her husband always says when things are wrong. He says . . . Gods Got It!

I really like that. God does have it when things happen in our lives. He is right there for us all the time . . . no matter what. I do believe that but there are times when something can really rock your world and it is hard to just accept that . . . Gods Got It! Deep down in your heart of hearts you know He does. Then there are times when that little bit of doubt and fear just sneak right in and play havoc with your head. I find myself waffling back and forth between . . . knowing Gods Got It and . . . hoping Gods Got It. 
So . . .

Today I was out driving around . . . talking to God some because I really needed some new thoughts in my head . . . then finally decided to just go home. When I got here I sat down at my computer and looked at Facebook. You know . . . God knew I was going to look at Facebook. This is what I saw.

1 Peter 5:7

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

And some things that aren't scriptures.

Let your faith be bigger than your fears.

God Is faithful
  to faithful to fail
is always with us
  always on time!

My child,

I'VE got this remember!

Love GOD

Then there was Child of Gods comment on my blog. Ten wonderful scriptures for me to read!

All of this . . . I believe . . . because GOD knew that I needed to read all of this. GOD knew that I needed these great, and positive, thoughts instead of the doubt and fear that has been swimming around inside my head since yesterday. I am so thankful that HE is faithful . . . loves us . . . and has us in the palm of HIS hand!

Hi Chelle,
How lovely that the Lord encouraged you through these other writings. Yes, you are right, He knew exactly what you was going to read.. Every day in our lives was written in His book before even one of them was formed. Sometimes when I swing between 'God will' and 'Will God?', the parable of the man who said to Jesus 'I believe, but help me in my unbelief', comes into my mind and I say the same thing to the Lord.

Haha!! :)

Isn't He amazing!?! I love how He steps in with encouragement.

We waver but He never, ever does. He does have this, all of it and always.

Praying for you my friend.

I love God's individual care for each of us. He meets us right where we are and takes us where we need to be!

Thanks for sharing how He did this for you.
