He Is for Me

He Is for MeThe day had been filled with disappointments, exasperated also by a tired mama. My mood matched the cloudy skies. It had been awhile since I had let the tears give way. It’s amazing how quickly negativity can become a leech.

Now what?

I cannot change my circumstances any more than I can make the sun come out. I am unable to make my desires come any faster than I can move the sun.

Facing the facts is wise, but it doesn’t lift the gloom.

Wallowing in self-pity never makes me feel better. Instead, I run to the Father’s arms.

I’m hiding under the shadow of His wing. His heart is my haven. In the physical realm, my haven might look like being alone in the bathroom. Or locking myself in the solitude of my room with worship music playing. But what the natural eye can’t see, is that God is next to me.

I give all the worries, frustrations, and disappointments to Him. He responds by filling me with His peace.

I know that when I walk out of my natural haven, my circumstances are going to smack me in the face if I’m not ready. So I stay a little longer, and speak truth to my weary heart.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 ESV

He is for me!

I repeat it over and over. He is for me!

I can’t make the sun come out, because it’s already out above the clouds. And despite my cloudy day, the Sun still shines.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 ESV

He is my sun. It’s true that I can not make God move any faster. It’s His timing, not mine. But He is not holding back anything good that I am supposed to have.

Because He is for me.

And you, my friend. He is for you.

When you are still waiting for that spouse. Or that job. Or that house. When you weren’t chosen for that scholarship. When your bank account is in the red. When the doctor’s report is not what you had hoped to hear. When you are at odds with someone else, or even yourself.

He is for you. He is the sun shining above your cloudy skies. And He is not holding back anything good that you are supposed to have.

  1. Thanks for the reminder that God is for us. Circumstances may not be the best, but God is always there to give mercy, grace and strength and to walk with us. Blessings to you! I’m visiting from the #RaRaLinkup!

  2. Kelly – You are so right – He is for you and He is for me – He is for all of us. Disappointments will come and they will go, but as we rest in the arms of the One who loves us and is for us, He will wipe away every tear and make all things new. Such a great post encouraging us to remember this. Your neighbor today at #RaRaLinkup

  3. Kelly, I love your authentic words. I’ve been right there with you, although sometimes I struggle on my own a bit, before remembering to run straight to Him. Thank you for this beautiful reminder. He is for me.

  4. Hey Kelly,

    Thanks for the great reminder. If nothing is work then the God’s power will be there for you. Because everyone is active just because of universe power.

    Thanks
    Dr. Diana Hardy

  5. We are always in need of a reminder of God’s love for us. I have to make myself remember Romans 8:32… He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

  6. He is your haven, your dwelling place. I am so glad that He invites me to dwell IN Him. He is my dwelling place. He is my hiding place, my shelter, my fortress. And I am so glad!
    Thanks for this reminder that He is for us! 🙂

  7. Kelly, it’s so lovely to “meet you” today. Thanks for linking up at #ThoughtProvokingThursday. Your encouraging words dropped down into my weary heart on just the right day. I am going to tuck those 4 words in my pocket and carry them with me.

    Looking forward to reading more from you in the days ahead!
    Blessings,
    Lyli
