Since it’s Faith Friday I thought I would share my morning Devotions with you. I grew up in a Christian household. We always went to church Sunday morning, we still do. I am a 20 year old girl who is Christian. But I have been through tough times in my life that made me question my faith. As I’m sure we all have.
But I have recently hit a really low point in my life where I didn’t really want to be around anyone. I didn’t want to go outside. I stopped praying and reading my bible. I honestly don’t even know why. Nothing major happened recently. That was just how I felt. I knew part of the reason was my anxiety. But one day I decided to say no I’m not going to keep living like this, always being afraid, never wanting to leave my house. I NEEDED God and I knew I needed him. So I continually prayed to God and got back into my morning Devotions.
That has been the best decision I’ve ever made. As soon as I get up in the morning a make a little breakfast because I’m always starving when I wake up. Then I go back in my room get out my Devotions and my Bible and start praying. I now can’t wait to wake up and start my day with God.
Yes my anxiety is still there. But spending time with God first thing in the morning takes some of the anxious feeling about the day ahead away. I’m able to step out of the house not feeling as anxious knowing that God is always with me and will always take care of me. I do not need to be afraid.
The Devotions I have been reading are Devotional Journal for Every Day of the Year By Sarah Young Jesus Calling- ENJOYING PEACE in HIS PRESENCE.
The second one is by Joyce Meyer Starting Your day right- Devotions for Each Morning of the Year
Proverbs 3:5 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.”
