His Arms are Around Us!

Have you ever felt like this????? Well if you have...this morning I read some verses that have helped me...and maybe it will help you also.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." - Matthew 11:28-30

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." - Zephaniah 3:17

I can just picture the Lord rocking me in his arms and comforting me. He is telling me don't be scared or stressed because He is here. Just like when our children are young and we sing to them for comfort or to calm them after a long day. We can climb into His wonderful big lap and he will comfort us. He sings over us!

God is so Good!

I need to copy that picture and have it ready to place somewhere so my family can see it and just leave the room when I am like that!!! Great picture! Great scripture! If only I would remember to turn to the Lord when I'm stressed...

I finally got back to your site and now I am following you. For some reason I can only get to you through your email comments on my blog. Funny... I am about to post a blog referencing the same verses in Matthew

This is just so sweet and so true, Debbie. I have always loved the image in my mind of climbing up into His lap and feeling His mighty arms wrap around me and comfort me. What an amaing heavenly Father we have!

Thank you for this blessing today!
Love and hugs,

P.S. I love the little saying "Too blessed to be stressed". :o)
I know I am but still stress sometimes!!

Thanks for the wonderful words. Only our Father can put a song in our hearts when things seem to be going wrong!

God is so good! Do you know the song Mighty to Save by Hillsong? It's one of my current favorites, and your second scripture obviously reminded me of it. These are the lyrics. If you ever have a chance, take a listen, it's a great song!

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
Jesus, shine you light and let the whole world see we're singing
for the glory of the risen king
