Today I'm hosting "In Other Words Tuesday" so I got to choose our quote for this week.
I recently read a book by Cherie Hill called " Be Still: Let Jesus Calm Your Storms ". It was such a timely read for me as I've been going through a very challenging season. As I speak with friends and read many blogs, I find that I'm not alone.
Here's the quote
"When we align our thinking with God's, we're given a glimpse of what it's like to see through His eyes. When we're able to view our storm from His perspective ...it changes everything." ~ Be Still by Cherie Hill ~
So, how do I align my thinking with God's?
God has not left me alone to figure things out according to human wisdom. The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is just as relevant today as when it was written.
When I am afraid, I replace that fear with ...the Truth.
When I become anxious, I remember that He has promised to never leave me nor forsake me.
I apply the Word of God to the storms in my life and ...I am calmed.
My human emotions can easily take over.
But when I remember who I belong to, I learn to depend more fully on the Lord. After all, He is in control of all things. Nothing is impossible for Him.
As I learn to lean on Him and trust Him, He shows me that He is faithful and has my best interests at heart.
In the midst of the storm, my perspective begins to change.
So, how about you? Have you aligned your thinking with God's in the midst of your storms?
