He holds victory in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
We've taken a long journey toward emotional well-being. We've discovered the benefit of getting moving. We've fed our minds and even gotten to know ourselves better. But there is one more vital step to becoming emotionally well. We must overcome difficulty.
Overcoming isn't a matter of the size of my struggle.
Overcoming isn't influenced by the number of my problems.
My ability to overcome is correlated with only one thing - how quickly and how decidedly I invite His presence into my struggle.
I cannot forgive outside the design of the Architect of forgiveness. (Want to tweet that? Click here --> http://clicktotweet.com/cbtfb)
I cannot heal without the care of the Great Physician.
I cannot experience peace beyond the presence of the Prince of Peace.
I do not know how big your battle has been. I don't know how deep your wounds cut. I only know His presence will make the difference.
How could inviting God's presence into your struggle transform your life?
Today I'm visiting with a friend, Angela Mackey of Rethinking My Thinking. We're talking about a baby...who changes everything.
