I’m going to be honest. I struggled with what to write about for my March blog post. It’s not just a classic case of writer’s block.
Every time I would write something down, the words were negative, ugly, or depressing.
Because, truth be told, my spirit has felt negative, ugly, and depressed more often than not recently.
March has been a chaotic month for me. Maybe this is what they mean by “March Madness?”
So I wondered, do I fake it and pretend that I’m living my best Proverbs 31 Woman life?
Or do I just tell you that I’m struggling with a lot of things?
I’m going with honesty. I’m struggling. At work. Dealing with financial decisions. Concerned about my health.
Are you struggling too? I’m guessing some of you are.
Let’s walk together through the Word and be reminded of some truths.
Do you feel alone in your struggles? You are not alone.
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 (NASB)
Are you tired – mentally, emotionally, physically? He gives us rest!
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (NASB)
Are you anxious? Praying is a must!
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6 (NASB)
Have you forgotten that this is not the end of the story? Spoiler: This isn’t the end! Have hope!
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NASB)
Have you told someone you are struggling? There’s wonderful power when you do!
“For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.” Matthew 18:20 (NASB)
If you pray for me, and you tell me in the comments below what you need prayer for, we could feel God’s presence in a powerful way.
Some days will be good. Some days will be bad. As sisters in Christ, we’ve got a wonderful book of truths in God’s Word and we’ve got each other, petitioning to our Heavenly Father on each other’s behalf.
I’m thankful for you. I’m thankful for those months when writing the honest, ugly truth is all I can do.
