Think to a time in life that you were so hurt and devastated and emotionally drained. What did you do?  If you were five years old and something happened in your life at that time that made you afraid, hurt and crying, what did you do back then?

Most of us would have run to our mother or our father.  They were our protectors in life. They could fix anything in our little world and make it better.  

I struggle in today's world with hurt, devastation and emotionally battles in several areas.  I buck up and try to be strong.  I make my lists.  I pray.  I work harder and harder.  It does not help.  I am totally in the wrong direction or I would not still be dealing with the issues.

The Father wants us in His arms.  He is our protector. Only He can fix those things in our lives.  We have to have faith and total belief that He will, just like we did at age five with our parents back then.  When you cry, cry out to Jesus.  When you are hurting reach out to God for His protection and healing. When you are emotionally spent, rest in His arms and allow the Holy Spirit to rejuvenate your being.

Seeking answers and solutions on our own only sends us down another rabbit hole.  The answers are right here, we just cannot see them because of our blinding pain.  I learned a valuable lesson this past month and I have stayed the path because of my trust and faith in God.  I choose what to become emotionally entangled with.  If something pops up I always react and then then breathe and recenter myself and let Him take it on.  I may have to pull myself back several times, but it does work. 

I will pray for you this day for the battles you are engaged in. May you find the peace the He offers and walk away from the battle. It is not yours to fight alone.  He is your protector... He will lead the way around the danger and keep you safe.


Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”- Hebrews 12:1
