I’ve been in a funk lately. Not sure how else to say it. I’ve been dealing with this bad infection that started in my nose, spread to my eye, then cheek, and now my armpit. I know gross, right?! And summer season is here and it seemed to really sneak up on me this year. So not ready for shorts, tank tops and even worse bathing suits. Anyone else feeling me? It’s like a downward spiral of emotions and it seems it’s one thing after another. The other night I was having a pity party for myself and I was trying to find comfort and strength in my husband. Of course, poor guy, was doomed from the start. To his credit he tried really hard!
That’s when I heard it. A whisper. “Tanya, have you spent time with me? Have you told me what is going on?”
Ohh man!! Was the Holy Spirit so right and I was busted. When I reflected on the past few days I had been busy with “life” and my own problems that I had neglected the one thing that was most important…time with Jesus, my Abba father.
He loves me so much and was waiting for me to come to him. I was trying to find comfort in my husband when the true answer is not found there. Jesus is the only one who can comfort me and bring me peace. He acts as our anchor in life. An anchor keeps the boat from drifting away. I definitely was drifting down the path of despair and feeling sorry for myself. My time with Jesus, like an anchor, will keep me fixed in the right position.
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
