"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippines 4:8
Take itallto Him, and don’t be shy to pour it all out into His hands. He’s our loving, protective Father. Don’t hold back your real, raw emotion. Don’t be shy to tell Him your worries, anxieties, needs, hurts, disappointments, wants, and fears. Don’t be scared to tell Him your circumstance and ask for help. He’s our Father, He cares, and He loves us. He loves us so much.
We can’t have true joy and peace inside unless we’re in constant communion with Jesus. Unless we have the close companionship with Him where we do not shy away from being honest and giving it all to Him. Our souls and hearts desperately need fellowship with the living God. When that happens, we experience a deep joy that surpasses all and every problem.
In that deep place with Jesus there is power and freedom. Power to overcome every obstacle and freedom to be happy despite any hardship.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
“When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face,Lord, will I seek.”
