Psalm 16: 8 “I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
Some days you just feel off-kilter. You try to search your heart to see what is wrong and you find nothing. All of your efforts to feel better meet with a tenacious angst. You try to pray and it does not have the affect you hoped. You open your Bible and you do not even know where to begin reading. Your mind wanders and you try to reel it in and focus. Focus on what? You have no idea. Even music seems to run off and leave you to fend for yourself this time.
What do you do?
You tell yourself that your emotions are not facts and then remind yourself what the facts are. God is in the same place He has always been, His promises are still true even if you cannot remember what they are at the moment. Persevere by going back to your Bible and determining to read until something happens. Get back on your knees and speak to your invisible God knowing He is there despite your feeling like no one is listening. Sing that song to Him or play that playlist or pick another song and another and another. The point is to keep moving. Through perseverance, you can throw off the off-ness of your days. You do not have to fall prey to the emotions you feel, My Friend, they can fall prey to the truth you know!
