Pardon me for the reference but it is pretty darn close to what I am feeling. We have all heard the term the “when the sh*t hits the fan”. I think my world feels like this lately. A little background, I run a fairly successful company. I have a great boss. But it comes with stress but don’t all of our jobs? Today I received an IRS audit letter. I have been having quite a few struggles coming my way and this, well this was the icing on the cake.
I am upset. I am scared. I am worried. BUT…… I have GOD! Whatever doubts and fears and worries that the evil one may stir up inside, I have JESUS and JESUS ALWAYS WINS!
With GOD I can face anything! With GOD I will get through anything! My struggles are not the total sum of my life. Sometimes it seems like they are, sometimes it seems like a quicksand but I have a big strong hand pulling me out.
I am going to include a prayer in my post today, it seems appropriate:
First and foremost, thank you JESUS that I have this job and I do understand that with all good things, comes some responsibility to handle it WITH YOU. YOU know FATHER I have been feeling like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. I know that good will come of ALL of this because that is YOUR promise. I ask FATHER that I am able to see you through the dark, hold on to you when I feel like I am on the edge and my FAITH shall not be shaken! I also pray for all others that may be going through a period in their lives where it feels like the “sh*t is hitting the fan”. YOU know where all this is going already FATHER, and you WILL BE GLORIFIED! I thank YOU GOD in advance for seeing me through this victoriously! In JESUS precious name!! AMEN
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
