Worship Wednesday



I am linking up with my blogger friend, Beth, at Adventures of a Schoolmarm for Worship Wednesday.


This is a new linky that I am super excited about.  I mean, who doesn't need some uplifting on a Wednesday?  I know I do.


So here is one of my favorite scriptures.  I have a hard time letting go and letting God.  Anxieties seem to sweep in and flood my mind and my soul.  This is one of the scriptures I have learned to try and remember that God is in charge even when my heart is anxious and worried.  It helps to remind me that I need to delight in Him.  That if I shift my focus from my problems to Him, He will quiet the loudness around me and bring comfort and peace to my soul.  I almost see it as a tornado surrounding me.  Stuff flying every which way, swirling and twirling, no end to the turning and churning. Like I am gripped in the clutches of everything that is going on around me.  But if I look UP instead of out at all the turmoil, I can find peace in the storm. The storm becomes just background noise that is quieted by His peace and comfort.



I usually read the New King James Version so I can understand everything but keeping as close to the King James Version as possible.  Therefore, the graphic is in that version.  These other versions offer a slightly different outlook and may speak to you more though.

Psalm 94:19 Living Bible (TLB)
Lord, when doubts fill my mind, when my heart is in turmoil, quiet me and give me renewed hope and cheer.
Psalm 94:19 The Message (MSG) When I was upset and beside myself,  you calmed me down and cheered me up.

Have a blessed day!

  1. I struggle with letting go of worry, too. There is so much thrown at us all day long- great verse to remember!

  2. I struggle with this, too. Your post reminded me of Matthew 14 when Peter tries to walk on water during the storm. As long as he kept his eyes on Christ, he was able to do it. But the second he started focusing on the waves around him (life's circumstances), he began to sink. I definitely had a stormy week, but thank you for reminding me to keep my eyes on Jesus. :)
