Thought to share: When you experience difficult seasons, get sad news, hear something that’s disturbing or step into a  painful situation, don’t process it all by yourself. Alone, you can easily slip into despair, discouragement and depression. Alone, you can easily panic and attempt to “fix” the situation on your own terms. However, if you’ll process through these situations with ME, I will lead your through like a tour guide. I will show you where I AM in each phase of the process. I will show you MY goodness in every detail. I will point out MY promises and highlight the fulfillment. I will flood you with MY peace and give you hope. So, the moment you experience anything negative, invite ME in and together we will sort through it.

Isaiah 43:1-5 (Msg) But now, God’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.  I’ve called your name. You’re Mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place,  it won’t be a dead end— Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to Me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you. So don’t be afraid: I’m with you.

Isaiah 30:21 (NASB) Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.

Romans 15:13 (TPT) Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in Him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with His super-abundance until you radiate with hope!

Thought to share: You are not invisible. I see you. Every detail. I AM intensely aware of every aspect of your life – past, present and future. Nothing escapes MY attention. I see your pain. I know your frustrations and disappointments. I know the sadness that overwhelms you. I feel the ache of your soul. I see every tear and hear every sigh. So rest in the truth that I AM with you and know that I AM soothing you with MY love.

Genesis 16:13 (MSG) She answered God by name, praying to the God who spoke to her, “You’re the God who sees me! Yes! He saw me; and then I saw Him!”

Psalm 139:3-4 (TPT) You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book and You know all the words I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step I will take before my journey even begins.

Psalm 56:8 (NLT) You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book.

Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT) For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.

Thought to share: Don’t spend your life wishing for something you don’t have. It’s a waste of your emotional energy, it exhausts your mind and leads to dissatisfaction and depression. It also prevents you from seeing the beauty of what you do have. Instead, choose to appreciate what you have. See the wonder of what’s currently in your hands. See the blessing in the complexities and challenges. Be thankful in everything, for everything. If you’ll do this, you’ll be able to see ME clearly, your perspective will shift and your heart will be full.

Philippians 4:11-13 (TPT) I’m not telling you this because I’m in need, for I have learned to be satisfied in any circumstance. I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty.

Ephesians 5:20 (NLT) And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT) Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
