Psalms 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:
his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
I keep getting bad news. Sometimes it follows me around like breathing. I went to the dr. this week and found all kinds of problems. I am pretty sure most (and maybe even all of them) are related to stress. I know that I feel exhausted. I know that I am struggling, I know that the depression and anxiety that are my constant battles have been rearing ugly heads on a regular basis. Sometimes life is just plain hard. Sometimes it throws you a curve ball that you really didn't plan on dealing with. You would think after the craziness of the last 4 years, I would be used to curve balls. Instead, I am exhausted and wish I were an ostrich that could hide my head in the sand and just pretend it was all perfect. I have learned that the bad news in my life comes with lots of loud noise and confusion. It can be so overwhelming that I can't hear the quiet whisper of the good things to come. I love that scripture in Psalms. Don't ask me how I found it today. I just turned the page and it was there. Promising me that I don't need to be afraid of evil tidings. I just need to fix my heart and trust the Lord for the rest. I just need to breathe in and out and let it go.
