Good morning everyone! I was led to this message for everyone to reflect on. When you and I overwhelmed by emotions, we have a place to run to. God  is the Towering Rock, Safe Refuge and Fortress where the enemy cannot reach us. We can take our cares, burdens, and worries straight to His Throne coming boldly (Hebrews 4:16) before His Throne and getting the answers we need to go on. He will remind us with His Word and by His Spirit as He confirms His Promises and lifts us above our circumstances so peace is established in our heart and mind again.

“O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings!” Psalm 61:1-4

As we learn to live in His Presence and wait on His Way, we will be at peace and satisfied with our life so there is no need to be angry or resentful because we know He prefects that which concerns us (Psalm 138:8) and He is making every detail work out for our good! (Romans 8:28) Why? Because He loves us. You see God knows the end from the beginning, so His Primary Concern is that we make it to the finish line of faith to receive the prize. When we are overwhelmed with any emotion, the Lord promises to show us what to do with those feelings and which way to go. (Psalm 142:1-3) He’s a Good God! He is for us not against us. There is no need to be mad – He is working this out for our good!

Are you mad today? Are you angry or frustrated? Get rid of it. Do away with it in your life. Be free to accept all that God has for you and let His Peace rule your heart and life now and forever more. He will guide you, direct you and never leave you. He renews, restores, and redeems.

Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you all.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

    Fran, As I read your blogs, I am reminded of God’s faithfulness when we come to the end of ourselves and self-sufficiency. He is faithful to our every need. Some of the scriptures that come to mind are 1 John 1:9, Psalms 33:4, 37:25, 40:10 and 17, Lam 3:21-24. Those are just a few scriptures, which express His faithfulness and love.
