Then Sings my Soul Saturday

I haven't posted on Then Sings My Soul the last couple of weeks. I have just been so busy with tackling life and ministry that I haven't had a chance to listen to much music.

And, honestly it has been one of those times when you rely on the Holy Spirit. That is what I have been doing. I have felt that I am praying about the same thing over and over. And I am. So I get to the point where I don't know how to pray.

But I do know that God is where I need to put my trust. I do know that the anxiety and worry that I face is not of him. And if you are a believer also you know where that comes from. There have been days that I have had to resolve to cast those thoughts away and I have had to just lean and rest, depend and trust.

This song by Third Day speaks of how I have been feeling. I have felt alone, broken and afraid. In my head I know that God is in control but circumstances dictate our feelings.

I do know that I should lean and trust God and he has always provided. In the last five years it has always been at the last minute or the 11th hour but he provides.
This week he did that. Today on the 27th of the month we are paying our rent.

This week our ministry received an award that included $5,000.00 prize. Of course the majority of this money is already spent on bills but it allows us to keep going.

And it brings more attention to the ministry and gives God the glory. God continues to show us even when things seem bleak that we can't give up. Because if we do we are giving up on him. And he has brought us this far he will take us the rest of the way.

If you are feeling worried and afraid don't do as I do (lol) do as I say trust in God turn it over to him and be not afraid because he is there. Even when you feel afraid or broken just lean on him and rest.

Love his voice. Another great song to listen to when you are feeling down & alone is Meredith Andrews song "You're not alone". I posted that song 3 Saturdays ago, or you can find her video on youtube. It will bless your soul too. Thanks for the honest & wonderful post.
