This morning...

3 days straight, eager, anxious, exhausting, confused, afraid, scared.  Pretty much most of the words that come to mind this morning.  I have nothing to lean on but His word... Just [some] of the encouragement I received through scripture this morning.

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

I am reminded, that God needs us to feel helpless, to feel weak, so that we WILL lean on Him.  He has me where He wants me and I trust His plan.  I know He is here and only gives what He knows we can handle.

Psalm 48:14
For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

Until then... Brantley
