Not to get to heavy over here, I like to keep this blog very positive but every once in awhile it's nice to be able to write what I'm going through. This week has been a trying one. I have just been flooded with so many thoughts of self doubt and insecurities that crept up out of know where, for no reason. It hit me sunday night and has carried threw all week, it has felt like someone is whispering to me "your not good enough"everyday.
I don't even know where this came from or why I have been so down this week but I can say that every single time i have sat down to read my devotional it has been exactly what i needed to hear.
God is so faithful to give us encouragement and build us back up again, to tell us we are good enough, that he has good things in store for us and that he will never fail us!
The book i am reading is called " I come quietly to meet you" by Amy Carmichael. It is so poetic and beautifully written! I will leave you with a little paragraph that touches my heart..
"I have found a definite and swift deliverance, in the very
instant the whisperer comes, in turning to him who is nearer than any
whisperer. I say instantly, "Make pure the inmost desire of my heart."
Then there flows into me peace,
and with it the assurance of the beloved.
However things may appear to be, of all possible circumstances-
those circumstances in whose midst I am set- these are the best that He could
choose for me. We do not know how this is true- where would faith be if we did?
But we do know that all things that happen are full of shinning seed.
Light is sown for us-not darkness."
