Walking Through Your Whatever

Psalm 23:1
The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need.

Philippians 4:19
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which   have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

John 14:27
 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

Matthew 11:28-29
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Jeremiah 6:16
This is what the Lord says:
“Stop at the crossroads and look around.
    Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.
Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls...


This morning I read a devotional then opened my Bible to one of the scriptures...Psalm 23:1. From there I started following the string of scriptures in my Bible...as one led to the next. The Lord has been talking to me about how He is all I need for whatever comes my way. It doesn't matter what the whatever is...just that He is enough and that He has it all in His care. 

All of these verses are good and  I have read them all many times except for the last one. In fact, I don't remember it at all. It could be that I have never read it or...just maybe...the Lord thought knew that this was the time...that I have the need...to really see it the most. 

Is He telling me I'm not following His path? No. He's telling me that as long as I continue following Him, He will give me peace and rest. Sometimes I get tired...worn down...and I let the way I feel dictate the way I act. Then...I don't follow after Him as closely as I know I should be! For that matter...as closely as I know will help me to walk through the whatevers in my life!! 

Lately I have spent a lot of time reading about something, that I do need to know about, and many questions have been answered for me. However, at the same time, I read things that I didn't really need reinforced in my mind. The Lord knew this. He knew I would need to read His Word to help me to  remember that He is here with me. He will give the peace of mind and heart...rest for my soul...calm the trouble and fear...that I need. He will take care of me.

I share this with you because the Lord wants you to know this too. Whatever your whatever is...He is there for you too. Walking right beside you. The Lord will take care of you...give you the rest and comfort you need...as you walk the path with Him.

Beautiful post and thank you for posting! Sometimes we let the world's troubles get the best of us, but that quiet spirit within us says, "Hey remember me?" I find the Lord does that a lot to me when I start to panic!

All we need to do is call out to Jesus, not even in words -- tears are enough.

Hugs and blessings! ♥

I needed this reminder tonight, Chelle. I want to remember your statement: Whatever your whatever is, He is there walking with you.
