Happy Sunday friends!
I’m actually spending it up in Canada visiting my family! YAY for fun family times!
As I was sitting here trying to figure out what to write about, and suddenly the words “the LORD is my shelter in the storm” came to my mind for some strange reason.
I say “strange” because well, my life doesn’t really feel like a storm right now. I mean, if I am being super honest, it’s REALLY REALLY busy right now, but in exciting things, not bad things. So, I was kind of like “I’m not in a storm. Things are busy, but things are going well. I’m happy. I’m in love with my husband. I have a great family, so God, why are you putting this scripture on my heart to write about?”
So, I took a few moments to sit and think on it.
And, something hit me. You know how it’s SO easy to run to God in the real “storms” of life, but then we tend to maybe not run to Him so much when things seem to be going good for us?
Maybe this is why he placed this on my heart. Not to remind me to run to Him when I am weak and can’t fight through the hardships currently happening, but almost as a reminder that I need to be MUCH better at running to Him when things are going well, if that makes sense.
I’m human, and I fail…especially in areas of going to God in the easy seasons. I get up, do my morning devos…and get on with my day. Life’s good.
In the hard times, I find myself praying a lot more, not rushing through my devotionals and generally just running to Him more frequently.
Like I said, I don’t think I am the only one who experiences this kind of thing, but it’s something that I was just reminded of that I needed to work on. God is there to support us through ALL life’s seasons and he wants us to lean into HIM during all aforementioned seasons.
So, that was what He placed on my heart today, and I hope it gave you a little reminder as well!
Time to party (Netflix and chill) with my family, so I’ll see ya tomorrow! <3
