I am going through a lot right now. Spiritually, mentally. I’m trying to find the balance between who I am and who I want to be. I have allowed my relationship with God become 3rd or 4th in my life and that just isn’t going to cut it anymore. God is really showing me that HE is the absolute center of it all.
I find myself getting more frustrated than I should with the kids or my husband, feeling overwhelmed and tired. Wanting to give up and just run away for days. I know it’s just satan attacking me for getting back on track with my walk. I know he’s just trying to knock me down when I know what I’m doing is good and right. I just have to keep reminding myself that all of this reaching out will bring Him all the praise and my heart will once again be full.
The new Hillsong United album Empires has been a saving grace for me lately. It has truly helped calm my soul and speaks to my heart.
Here are some lyrics to one of my favorites:
Without Him at the core, nothing will ever fall in to place.
Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trials
Come like hope again
Even when the fight seems lost, I’ll praise you
Even when it hurts like hell, I’ll praise you
Even when it makes no sense, to sing, louder than I’ll sing your praise
I will only sing your praise
Do you ever find yourself lost or struggling in your faith? How do you overcome the obstacles and negativity that follows with it?
