Feeling Emotionally Beat Up?

Without God, we are lost. We are not equipped to walk through the trials without Him.

So often people spend all their time trying to figure out “why” something happened to them, and they do not walk in the protection and peace that God can give them. Not only does He offer us peace, but like the verse says, He promises to be the lifter of our heads.

Psalms 3:3
But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me;
my glory, and the
lifter up of mine head.

When I think of Him being the lifter of my head, I picture myself emotionally beat up, tired and battle weary with my head hanging low.

But then, He takes my chin in His loving hands and lifts it so gently until I’m looking into His eyes of love, and He says:

“Child you are mine, look up and square your shoulders daughter because you ….are….mine.”

I was surprised to find myself in the ER yesterday. It seems I'm suffering from exhaustion, anxiety and stress. I'm so tired these days with working fulltime.
I never attended to be working this long while coping with my chronic pain.
I kept your words close to me as I recover.
