I drew this picture because lately I've been going through a lot of CIRCUMSTANCES. lots of bad ones. I don't know if any of you are like me, but I am very selfish. I look at myself and how I feel.
how will this affect me?
How do I feel about this?
I Can't do it.
I am weak.
I am hurting.
Those feelings and thoughts are very valid and God cares about them. But what I'm discovering is if I put my eyes on God in my circumstances, the fear lessens. I've been looking too much at myself instead of the Big God I have.
A wise friend of mine once told me that whenever he was going through some hardships, God gave him a word that helped him through it. He still recites it over his life whenever he goes through fire. And today, I just started meditating on it.
The word was: Jesus is KING.
I'm unemployed... Jesus is King.
I can't overcome this sin... Jesus is King.
The world is a terrible place... Jesus is King.
Depression is too powerful... Jesus is King.
I keep making mistakes... Jesus is King.
No matter what we go through in life, Jesus is King. He is the final say on everything and anything. The best part is, He is a GOOD King and LOVES to share his wealth with us.
I have lived for far less than what I am able to live. I lessen myself, and let fear control me. My fear of the outside world and how it will affect me has become greater than my love of the Lord who OWNS the world and everything in it.
Let's fix our eyes to Jesus once more. Just try one more time! Every day..Every moment our strength fails. I can't, but Jesus can. He is king. He is a good king and he loves ME. What is His, is mine. And I take that blessing and thank God for it.
My King...Let me gaze upon you instead of my circumstances. Because you are in control and I am a proud princess of the Kingdom.
