It is often natural for us to feel overwhelmed with our everyday situations. When struggles and anxiety seem to become regular stages in your routine, it is important to focus on the Lord's aim for you: to experience Him. The Lord desires to be your everything, and may frequently raise your environment in order for you to turn to Him as your refuge. He is the unceasing sustenance and longs for you to just take Him as your source. Once you turn to Him, you will be able to see just how enjoyable and comforting He is. So remember, never lose heart in times of difficulty, but rather cast your anxieties and cares onto Him. It is in this way that He is able to grow within you. How wonderful is this?
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all." (2 Corinthians 4:16-17)
