Oh, the beauty of God and His gracious ways.I was struggling fiercely on Sunday with depressive thoughts. As in, I can't remember the last time I have felt so rotten. I kept "hearing" everything as an attack on who I am. Fighting off the lies with the Truth was physically exhausting me. In my head I knew this was a battle which has already been won. I knew I have the Holy Spirit on my side, and He will empower me with everything I need to overcome these conflicts. Still, I was feeling low. And going lower. Couldn't wait until it was time to go to bed and start on a new day. But Monday morning I woke up ready to go back to bed. Soooo tired. Monday never waits for me, though, so I got up and began my day. I was thankful for a fresh start, trusting in God's mercies which are new every morning, and hopeful it would be a better day. Yet, the cloud from Sunday seemed to still be hanging over my head.Until... An angel came knocking. I was sitting at the table
Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.Isaiah 65:24Oh, the beauty of God and His gracious ways!
