He is Everything to Me

When we spend much needed time with God through prayer and through the study of His Word, we are gently reminded that He is the one who is in control. We are reminded that He is good. We are reminded that He is always with us.

Our strength comes from Him. Only Him. When our circumstances don’t change – our outlook and attitude can. When the darkness threatens to take over – our eyes can see in His light. When we are in despair – He reaches down and comforts.

We can rest in the knowledge that God is our peace.

We can rest in the knowledge that God is our hope.

We can rest in the knowledge that our precious Father cares for and about us.

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (I Peter 5:7)

There are times when life can just overwhelm me and leave me feeling anxious and down.

There are times when it seems like I am getting thrown curveball after curveball and I don’t have a catcher’s mitt in sight.

During these times I can seek comfort in the Word of God.

During these times I can crawl into the lap of my sweet Savior and let Him wrap His loving arms around me.

During these times I can cry out to God and I know that He hears my distress and He will answer me.

“In my distress I cried to the Lord, and He heard me” (Psalm 120:1)

My precious Lord gives me strength, peace, comfort, hope , rest, life, breath.

Because of Him I can put yesterday behind me.

Because of Him I can deal with today.

Because of Him I can face tomorrow.

Because of Him I can.

This makes me think of that old hymn, "Because He Lives" ... the chorus: Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future. And life is worth the living, just because He lives.

My Precious Sister & Friend,

I thank God for you and your loving, insightful mind and heart! Your words along with His Word here touches me very deeply this night, very deeply.

I've also been leaning and resting in Psalm 118:24 - "This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

I love you Beth and I thank you for your inspiration, encouragement, powerful intercession, prayer support and special friendship.

God bless you dear one.

Peace, Love, Hugs & Prayers,

I've always loved this picture; your words/heart are an appropriate addition to the truth of God's gentle care over our lives.

Honestly, where would we be without him? He's everything to me.

I'm so thankful we have a Savior who love us and cares for us. I've been memorizing Psalm 139 and have thought so much lately about the fact that He knows me. He searches me and knows no other.
I love that we can have a personal relationship with Him. Close enough that we can feel His loving arms around us...holding us tight.
Thanks for the awesome post!
