I know that I have said it before, but I love this kit! The devotional content is amazing, and just what I needed to read and reread. I am someone who imagines scenarios a lot in my head, and the scenarios differ according to the mood I am in. As I am sitting here writing this, I’m thinking of a concert I have in the morning. Earlier today, I was at school practicing, and I was feeling confident. And the scenario in my head was that I was going to do great at my piano concert tomorrow, and I will be proud of myself afterwards. But now, I’m exhausted and starting to feel nervous. The scene playing out now is that I will be a total flop tomorrow. Does this ever happen to you, too?
Hosea 6:1-3 says – “Come, let us return to the LORD;
for he has torn us, that he may heal us;
he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will raise us up,
that we may live before him.
Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.”
Here’s the problem – I am not focusing on God! I am thinking of my nerves and fears, but I am not thinking about how God has pulled through for me so many times! God is faithful, friends, and we need to return to Him over and over again, and remember that He is faithful. We need to “press on” to know God. He is there, waiting for us.
I’ll end this off with a quote from the devotional. “No matter what you’re waiting for, pray for the faith to trust Him. He will help you until the morning light comes – and beyond. He is alive. He is with you. He is working. Just as He said.”
Thank you for taking the time to read this today! If you haven’t already bought this kit, you can get it right here (http://rwrd.io/wkjedmx?c) as well as the faithfilled digitals.
