In need of LOVE



This past month has been tough, I'll be honest. There has been more than enough ups and downs with my heart. End of school, end of a few friendships and of residence living.

Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed and get caught up in things that don't really matter. Exams are so stressful to me and instead of relying on God for my daily bread I turn to worldly things that leave me so empty. I've asked God to reshape and re-mold me into the women of God he wants me to be. I never realize how painful of a process it could be but I know that God is so much better than any worldly thing- even if i'm so tempted to receive my love from the world.

I've realized this past week that I am so in need of love but in need of God's love and that nothing compares to his love: everything will fall short. In talking to a friend tonight my favourite Psalm was brought up. These words ring so loud in my heart tonight as I am drawing all my strength from God and his everlasting love.

Here is Psalm 63 I hope it gives you the encouragement and challenge that the Lord showed me tonight- I highlighted the parts that stood out to me tonight


 1 You, God, are my God,
   earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
   my whole being longs for you
,
in a dry and parched land
   where there is no water.
 2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
   and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
   my lips will glorify you. 
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
   and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
   with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
 6 On my bed I remember you;
   I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help,
   I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
   your right hand upholds me.
 9 Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
   they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
   and become food for jackals.
 11 But the king will rejoice in God;
   all who swear by God will glory in him,
   while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
