Day 17- Comparing

I decided to look back at day 17 last go around. I feel good. I love the last week. It is so nice to feel normal. The title was "Feeling Blue but not Feeling Sick" I wonder why but I start letting fear get to me. I have been praying that I continue to "BELIEVE". The bracelet Alexa made me is on my wrist all the time. I look at it all the time. I guess it is normal to ask why, how, when and where? Sometimes it is so overwhelming that I fall to my knees with sadness. I do believe there is a reason for everything. I am thankful for all my blessing and I am praying to be guided. I pray that God will point me in the right direction. I would like to pray for everyone who does not have the Lord in their heart. If you are not sure where to go or what to do just pray for Him to enter your heart and be complete. If there is one thing I know for sure is when times get tuff and I feel like I can not walk another step I just allow God to carry me. I am constantly reminded that He is in control. I have a country full of beautiful people praying for me and serving the Lord. Thank you for being there when I need you. I have become inspired and encouraged more than you even know. Wishing you many blessing.

May you find comfort in these verses:

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Isaiah 41:10

"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13

I am praying not only for your strength and health but also for you to have peace in that you are being held by a loving and gracious God.



This verse also makes me think of you as in your trial you are sharing the love God has for you and shining it out to the world so that others may see your light and believe in the love of Jesus.

"I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to fre captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in the darkness" Isaiah 42:6-7

You faith is a light that unbelievers will see and search for Jesus.
