Hello Friends! I’ve had a super busy/ tough week full of tests and it honestly feels like everything is being thrown my way + I’m just doing my best to somewhat handle it all on my own. I had a huge accounting test last night + was reading my bible before (Because there is no way I could’ve done that on my own) and Colossians 1:17 really stuck out to me. It says “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” I just thought this was so cool! I think a lot of times I write God off as too busy to care about me or my life, but that is so the opposite of the truth. I try so hard to keep my life as perfect as I can on my own when in reality it’s a lot harder than it sounds. I feel like every time I fix one thing in my life something else goes wrong. Life is messy. It’s not a bunch of cute Instagrams of Coffee 24/7 even though a lot of times I try to make mine look like it is. I think I can do it all on my own + I don’t even try to give up my issues and my problems to the Lord because I am too consumed with thinking I have it under control. God knows our struggles and wants to meet us there. In Colossians 1 Paul is literally talking about The Supremacy of Christ + that he cares about us. I don’t know about you but I feel like there are probably a million more important things that God could be doing with his time rather than concerning himself with my issues. But He meets us where we are + wants to join us in our lives + our struggles. When I have a problem in my life 9 times out of 10 I go to another person or myself. Why do I think that I have more power than the Creator of the Universe? The God who saved us all from our sin loves you + me that much that he cares about your problems even when you feel like no one will. More often than not I underestimate God but this verse says “He is before all things.” To me this meant he knows all that I am going through and he is more important than all of it. He loves us unconditionally + understands our problems. His grace never runs out + He wants to join you in life, so that you don’t have to do it alone! I hope that you can understand how much He adores you + that He cares what you are going through. Let him join you. Xo, Katherine.
