A Good Word

Psalm 43 v 5

Sometimes this crazy world gets us down and we feel disturbed by it all.  Our souls can become downcast and we can feel depressed and discouraged.  Sometimes we don’t even know why.  Other times the troubles of this life weigh us down.  Every human being on earth has faced this earthly reality.

I have to admit friends, I was pretty discouraged this morning.  Yes, another rough morning from Celiac.  Do you know how God turned it around though and lifted me up?!  He sent a wave of encouragement from all of you and He spoke encouragement into my heart!

I listened to that beautiful praise song that GodInspiredArt&Quotes posted this morning, and then I posted a piece about that song and her blog!  The Lord continued to send encouragement through my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ all day, then He spoke a very familiar word into my heart.

This is what I heard the Lord whisper to me as He reminded me to shift my focus:

“Why are you downcast,

O my soul?

Why so disturbed within


Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.”

Psalm 43:5

Amen!  I don’t need to be disturbed about anything even with Celiac Disease!  Forget Celiac!  I rebuke that discouragement in the Name of Jesus!  I believe in the God of all creation and He is with me and for me!  He is the Creator of Heaven and earth, and nothing is too hard for Him!  He saw that I was fighting the disease hard this morning, so He gave me support through our encouraging family of believers and He spoke a good word into my heart!

Whatever you have going on right now in your life that might be disturbing you, lay it down to God!  Shift your focus to the God of Heaven who loves you and put your hope in Him and what He has done for you as your Savior and God!  We will yet praise Him!  We will yet praise Him!  Amen!

I pray in the Name of Jesus that all who are struggling and downcast today will be delivered from that and will be lifted up and encouraged in the power of the Holy Spirit!  Amen!

Thank you all for the love and encouragement, and thank you for your prayers!

Grace and peace to you all!


I must have listened to that praise song “Higher” at least 10 times today!  Praise God!  Matter of fact, I am going to listen to it again right now!  God bless you all!
