I have big dreams and goals for 2012. I love that a fresh new year is spread out ahead of us, waiting for us to take action.
With big dreams comes anxiety at times. I know my weaknesses, my inadequacies. They mock me when I look at my list of goals for the new year.
This morning I read this verse:
“When I said, ‘My foot is slipping,’ your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” (Psalm 94:18-19)
It’s good to remember that I’m not alone in feeling unsteady, weak or anxious at times. Here’s the hard part, though: I need to ask God for help. It’s his love that meets me in my weakness. There’s a consolation, a comfort, that only God can bring. I want to experience the soul-joy that comes from God’s unique consolation.
I pray that you’ll ask God for help today. That you’ll feel his presence and consolation. I pray that where there’s anxiety or weakness in your life, you’ll ask the one who knows you best for support and be washed in the comfort of His love.
Take a moment and talk to God about your anxiety. Ask for help. You’re in good company.
