I am Yours

Are you struggling this morning? Has it been a rough week, month, or start to the New Year? If you are walking through a deep dark place right now I want you to hear me today. I want you to hear and read my words to you. You dear sweet sister, friend, fellow mother are so deeply loved by my Father! He is yearning for you to call out to him, he is seeking you out and wants you to say "Here I am Lord, I need you."

The waters that you are walking may seem deep and mucky, it may feel that you have even lost your stepping and began to go under, grasping and gasping for some help or relief as you start to go down into the dark water. These are dangerous waters my friend, but there is one who can pull you out, who is stronger than the mucky mud and water.

My dearest friend, I have been in that dark water, where it seems that you can't find any help or any flotation to keep you up. You start to go into that deep dark place where you begin to have conversations, how can this be? Am I really loved?  Does anybody see me? Is this how it will always be? What's next? If you listen to the lies that the devil throws at you during these conversations with yourself you will never be able to free yourself from the murky water and mud. Why? Because the devil is cunning and clever. He knows our lowest points where we struggle and he always seems to find a way into them. Yet, I have one promise, one truth that has never disappointed me and has helped me find my bearings when I'm at the lowest darkest point.

The truth is this...
I am His. I am a Daughter of the Highest King. I will never be alone even in the deepest dark places. I am Loved. He knows me by name and created me in his image. I am free from the spirit of fear.

Romans 8:14-15 - " For all who are led by the Spirit of God, are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry "Abba, Father!"

2 Corinthians 6:18- "and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be daughters and sons to me", says the LORD ALMIGHTY. 

Galatians 3:26 - " for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith." 

I want you to see him, to believe in Him. To know that he will never leave, never shy away, never run away. No matter what you are walking through. 

As I drove to work this week, this song by Lauren Daigle came on and the words really struck me. 
Particularly, the promise that I am His. I was reminded of those deep dark mucky times where I was so deep in sorrow and pain I wasn't sure what came next but this song points to the truth. YOU ARE HIS! Believe that today my dear friend.

"So I rest in your promises, now I am sure of this, I'M YOURS

Let the water's rise, I will stand as the oceans roar
Let the Earth shake beneath me
Let the mountains fall

You are God over the storm and I am YOURS..."

I am Yours by Lauren Daigle
