Many people struggle during the winter. We come off the hectic holidays with high expectations and then enter into the dark deary winter dreaming of daffodils, tulips and green grass. We want and need to see beauty and hope again.
My emotions see to take me down paths that bring darkness not light. I have to go to something bigger than me to find balance, so I run to God and his word. Here are some of my favorite Scriptures:
- Psalm 139:14 where God says,“I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
- God tells me in Psalm 17:6-8, “I am the apple of His eye.”
- In Deuteronomy 7:6, God tells me that I am “His treasured possession.”
- In Philippians 4:8, God tells me to think about whatever is “true, noble, right, pure, and lovely.”
My goal is to think about the truth that God tells me and spend my time thinking about what God says is true. The last Scripture I want to share is Psalm 119:114, “You are my refuge and my shield. I have put my hope in your Word.” My confidence and hope is in God and that I am the Lord’s treasured possession.
Take time to let His word marinate into your heart. Look for beauty in the simple things and know that you are loved and important to the heart of God.
So let go my soul and trust in Him
