My God Knows.

It never ceases to amaze me how My God always knows what is going on in my heart and mind. He sends the scripture I need to read and puts the songs of praise on my lips when I need it most! How awesome is it to know that we have a heavenly Father who knows your inner most thoughts, wishes & desires?! He works in mysterious ways that is for sure, but how thankful I am to Him and for Him in the way He loves, supports, provides, and is attentive to His children! With that being said, I was feeling down this morning and I open my devotional for the day to read these words...

Self-pity is a slimy, bottomless pit. Once you fall in, you tend to go deeper and deeper into the mire. As you slide down those slippery walls, you are well on your way to depression, and the darkness is profound.
Your only hope is to look up and see the Light of My presence shining down on you.Though the Light looks dim from your perspective, deepen the pit, those rays of hope can reach you at any depth.
While you focus on Me in trust, you rise ever so slowly out of the abyss of despair. Finally, you can reach up and grasp My hand. I will pull you out into the Light again. I will gently cleanse you, washing off the clinging mire. I will cover you with My righteousness and walk with you down the path of Life.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. 
Psalm 40:2-3 NIV

Why, my soul, are you downcast? why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. 
Psalm 42:5 NIV

The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Psalm 147:11 NIV

So today I may feel broken and sad, but I know that My God meets me right where I am. He loves me with such Grace, I know He is with me wherever I go and will guide me out of the darkness. I don't know if you are struggling with anything right now, but I pray these words and scripture may brighten your day!
blessings to you my friends!!
