Funk

Reason: Archie’s birthday weekend. This is it. Taylor and I took months to plan Archie’s birthday every year, starting as soon as father’s day was over. Now it’s here.

Long story short, I’m not handling this next new hole as well as I thought I would. This is what my heavenly Dad gave me:

Ephesians 5:20
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
Give thanks in every circumstance, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus

Psalm 145:1b

I will bless Your name forever and ever.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ…

Sounds like I’m, again, suppose to get my praise on. How many times has he had to tell me this????  Am I hard headed er what?

When it comes to depending on others to comfort and be there:

Psalm 118:8

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.

Micah 7:7-8

But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me.

Proverbs 28:26

Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.

Psalm 118:9-13

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. All nations surrounded me; in the name of the Lord I cut them off! They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side; in the name of the Lord I cut them off! They surrounded me like bees; they went out like a fire among thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them off! I was pushed hard, so that I was falling, but the Lord helped me.

What can I say? He had a lot to say to me about me trying to fill a God size hole with a people size plug. It can’t be done. Shame on me.

-Blessings-

  1. You are not perfect , and the flesh is what it is. Being in a funk on these firsts is natural. I love all the verses. Hang in there🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  2. “Hear my cry, O God;
    listen to my prayer.
    From the ends of the earth I call to you,
    I call as my heart grows faint;
    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
    For you have been my refuge,
    a strong tower against the foe.
    I long to dwell in your tent forever
    and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.”
    ~Psalm 61:1-4, NIV

    I came across this particular Psalm yesterday and found it especially encouraging. As you said, only God can alleviate the “funk” and provide all the support, encouragement, and satisfaction you need (something I’m slowly starting to realize after receiving all I ever wanted- and more!- and yet still discovering spiritual unrest, or gaps in my soul’s satisfaction), and I hope these particular verses will be a peace-giving blessing to you as well.
    Love and Prayers <3
