Are you feeling confined or trapped? Are you under a lot of pressure? Some situations may be impossible to avoid. You know what you have to do, but still, the pressure can get to you.
Don’t forget to stop every once in a while to take time out for yourself. Go for a walk, ride a bike, and clear your head. Make time to pray. When you go to God’s presence, things take on a new perspective.
Life certainly is not easy, but if you let the Lord untie the knots in your soul, everything changes.
He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
he drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the Lord was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
he rescued me because he delighted in me.Psalm 18:16-19
Sometimes you feel stuck or trapped. Everyday life ties you up in knots. Maybe it’s real or all in your mind. Still, all you want is to be free.
But you have tasks & responsibilities. You can’t just run away. That’s not you. So you show up. You stay put. And it’s okay, but still, sometimes, it’s hard. It hurts inside.
Who will show you the way? Who can lead you out of the wilderness into a wide-open space?
It is He who spreads out the great blue sky above you. It is He who opens up the heavens and whispers to your heart.
It is He who tells you, the struggle is worth it. You are loved beyond measure.
Be strong. Be brave.
And by the grace of God, you know you can do it. You can be steady. Solid and sure.
Knots untied, you return. You bless each task. You make them holy.
You walk free in a spacious place. Nothing can tear you down. Nothing can steal your joy.
