Trusting in Him when the pressure seems to come from all sides: changes, demands; pushing, pulling, draining me.
It stole my joy.
But He called me to Him.
He led me to Romans chapter 8 and He reminded me that I should be living a Spirit filled life and not be so concerned with the flesh: striving in the flesh, obeying the flesh and worrying myself with things of the flesh (earthly things).
He reminded me that trusting in Him requires Spirit living. Living by His Spirit, daily. Seeking His presence, daily.
And then His peace surrounded me and joy crept back in.
‘The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace’ [Romans 8:6]
