I am thankful:
~ for lots of sweet moments this week…
Out of nowhere. NOWHERE. For no reason at all, relentless waves of anxiety violently attacked. I felt fiery stabs through my heart and hundreds of pounds of weight pressing on my chest forcing the air out of my lungs. I couldn’t breathe. Silent tears began to well as the radio began to mock, “it’s the most won-der-ful tiiiiime of the yeeeeear…” And I knew even in that moment that I’m not alone in this. So many people are hurting and struggling right now. The sensory overload. Family drama. Money stress. Social anxiety. Loneliness. Loss. Anxiety sucks. PERIOD.
He truly is Emmanuel, God With Us.
EL ROI, the God Who Sees
Yahweh-Jireh, LORD will provide.
He is faithful in the good. He is faithful in the hard. He is faithful in that agonizing divide between the good and the hard.
Whether your week has been great or the best part of your week is knowing that it’s almost over, HE IS FAITHFUL.
Count your blessings.
Be somebody’s blessing.
And keep on trucking.
Thanks for giving thanks with me.

I hate it when your anxiety and PTSD jump on you like a huge rogue elephant – out of nowhere, like you said – and attempt to steal your joy and peace. Lifting you on wings of prayer and love and asking the Holy Spirit to push back the darkness and fear that threaten you and speak powerful peace and comfort into your heart and mind, as only He can. Love always, my precious friend.
Amen sister 🙏 I LOVE You! BUT GOD’S LOVE is BEST!!
