The next writing prompt from “God is My Happy Place” is:
“Let God whisper tender words that reach the deepest place in your heart.”
There was a point the other day, where I was feeling anxious/worried. As soon as I went to take a break at work, I started reading scriptures about worry. And God continued to speak to me throughout the rest of the day.
‘The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the refuge and fortress of my life— Whom shall I dread? Though an army encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against me, Even in this I am confident. For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. ‘ Psalms 27:1,3,5,13 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/PSA.27.1,3,5,13 AMP
‘God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains be shaken and slip into the heart of the seas, The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold [our refuge, our high tower]. Selah. ‘ Psalms 46:1-2,7 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/PSA.46.1-2,7 AMP
‘Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, For the Lord God is my strength and song; Yes, He has become my salvation.” ‘ Isaiah 12:2 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/ISA.12.2 AMP
‘For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord , ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you. Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. ‘ Jeremiah 29:11-13 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/JER.29.11-13 AMP
‘“Behold, I am the Lord , the God of all flesh; is there anything too difficult for Me?” ‘ Jeremiah 32:27 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/JER.32.27 AMP
‘And who of you by worrying can add one hour to [the length of] his life? But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also. “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.’ Matthew 6:27,33-34 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/MAT.6.27,33-34 AMP
‘But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”’ Matthew 19:26 https://my.bible.com/bible/114/MAT.19.26 NKJV
‘And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. ‘ Romans 8:28 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/ROM.8.28 AMP
‘Who shall ever separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? Just as it is written and forever remains written, “For Your sake we are put to death all day long ; We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter .” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. ‘ Romans 8:35-37 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/ROM.8.35-37 AMP
‘For to me, to live is Christ [He is my source of joy, my reason to live] and to die is gain [for I will be with Him in eternity]. ‘ Philippians 1:21 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/PHP.1.21 AMP
‘Little children (believers, dear ones), you are of God and you belong to Him and have [already] overcome them [the agents of the antichrist]; because He who is in you is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world [of sinful mankind]. ‘ 1 John 4:4 https://my.bible.com/bible/1588/1JN.4.4 AMP
Then, at the end of my break, I had to go back to work, so I started music. I have close to 850 songs in this playlist and I put it on shuffle and left it to God to bring up the songs He wanted me to hear. Song after song was speaking directly to me. I’m including a couple of them here.
I do not own any rights to these songs/videos.
I love Him so much. He spent the day telling me how much He loves me & calming me down. By the end of the shift, I had calmed down quite a bit, but He was was still showering me with His love. I felt taken in. It was like an all day hug.
I hope all of you have a beautifully blessed day! ❤ ❤ ❤
