September 26 Pearl

September 26

Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. Our God is a God who saves! The Sovereign Lord rescues us from death. Psalm 68:19-20

I can relax and know The Lord will carry me in his arms. I had a severe headache that turned into a migraine and I was unable to take care of my responsibilities and vomited in the middle of our small group.

I tried so hard to make it through, but I couldn’t stop the vomit. It was rather embarrassing to rush to the bathroom and know that everyone could hear me vomit.

I’m sticking to my guns and denying myself the comfort of sugar. If I find solace in food instead of the Lord than this is not pleasing to him and its an Idol. I want to please the Lord and do the right thing.

Food should be to meet my needs not to indulge and cover up any issues I may have. I feel slightly out of control because I’m not controlling my comfort with food. Of course the reality is that I’m not in control even when I think I am.

My Pearl today is that the Lord will carry me in his arms as I find rest in Him alone.
