The Pressure Is Off

Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.

My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock. My refuge is in God.

Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before him.

God is our refuge. Selah.

Psalm 62:5-8 CSB

The Pressure Is Off

I read this verse and immediately my soul took a deep breath. I sure did need it. Isn’t that just like the Word of God? His Word is alive and active and always doing a work in us. If you are like me, You are beyond grateful for that work. My 2017 was a year. As I am sure many of you can relate, I found myself on some pretty mountaintops and in some rocky valleys. The undercurrent of last year was an intense struggle in my mind. That is where the battle is, right? It doesn’t begin with our emotions or our actions. It begins with our thoughts.

For the most part, I am a disciplined person. I don’t normally have trouble with focusing on all things lovely and righteous and good. But, I think the enemy came for me. I have been sensing a shift coming, a breakthrough. When God is gearing up to propel us forward in our relationship with Him or in our calling or in building His Kingdom, the enemy is gearing up as well to destroy the plans of the Lord.

Favorite Finds Friday!

I am no expert when it comes to the Enneagram, but I am fast becoming a student. If you have never heard of it, it’s a personality test, but more than a personality test. Its roots can be found in Christianity. It centers around 9 basic types of personality. Each personality has 2 wings. Those consist of personality traits that influence our specific type. Our types don’t change, but we display our wing traits in our healthy and unhealthy states.

This is the first book that I am reading about the Enneagram is The Sacred Enneagram by Christopher Heuertz. I randomly saw it Barnes and Noble. I was drawn to it immediately! I’m so glad I did! I’m only a few chapters in, but I’m loving it!

If you’ve been wondering what the big deal is about the Enneagram or if this is your first time hearing about it, grab a copy here.
