Only God

This has been a very tough week emotionally. I can't go into any detail because I want to protect the privacy of those involved, but let's just say it's been a week of worry, heartache, and sadness because I see a friend hurting and all I can do is pray. This situation has been going on for years but it's gotten worse as of late and my heart just hurts for her. I want to fix it, I want to tell her what to do, I want to intervene, but I can't. Only God. Only God can intervene. Only God can do a miracle. Only God.

I've been dealing with several situations where you have to ask for God's wisdom. His Strength. His comfort. It's draining and exhausting but He has been good to guide me and to give me patience. I am learning to stop before speaking or writing. I'm learning to pray before I say anything of great consequence because I can't say anything of great consequence. Only God can give me anything to say of great consequence and if I don't take the time to listen to Him, I'm only going to say something dumb. I'm also learning not to let what others say to me affect me to my core. The Lord is doing a work in me and I'm thankful because I can't be there for others if I'm not continually changing for the better. More of Him! That's what I long for.

He truly is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

God bless you - Julie
