Beat Up

Beat Up

I am feeling a little beat up today.  I am replaying situations in my mind, re-visiting past wrongs, and other various thoughts have been pouring through my mind and I have allowed myself to get down.  The gloomy weather today certainly hasn’t helped.

I cannot live there.  I am brought back to 2 Corinthians 1:9

But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves, but on God, who raises the dead.

and Isaiah 43:2

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

I know that I am not alone during my gloomy day.  I AM is with me.  It doesn’t say, “If you pass through the waters..” it says “When”, and today is one of many days that I am passing through the waters.  I have to rely on what I know to be true, that God is with me and He is really all I need.
