*Rock of ages, Cleft for me. Let me hide myself in thee.*
There’s something that I struggled with as a child that has continued on into adulthood that I think many could relate with.
I overthink things.
As frustrated by that as we all are, it’s easy for anyone to do it. As a child, I would hear thunder and automatically assume it was the world ending. When the sun would begin to go down, I thought something bad was going to happen because it was dark outside. While I might have been a wee bit dramatic, that’s what I did then.
It’s what I do now.
At least, until God changed my perspective. I thought about a time when I was a small child, and there was a trailer on TV that scared me. Without thinking twice, I would bury my face into my dad’s shirt, because I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, he would protect me.
You already see where I’m going with this. Why is this any different in our lives? When we are afraid, we shouldn’t even question if God will protect us.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
When you are scared, stressed, frustrated, annoyed, overwhelmed or any other emotion. Hide yourself in the Father. He’s been waiting.
There is nothing too big for him.
