Sometimes I get so overwhelmed and taken over by emotion, it feels impossible to handle. Like I can't even be in control of what I feel or do or say because I am so overcome by. . . something. Whatever it is at the time. That happened last night. I felt the need to shout it to the world how I felt and how much love I had in my heart. I know this sounds cheesy or fake, but it's true. It's really scary, feeling deeply like that. Not being in control. But God is so stinkin' good. He created me just how I am and He knows my strengths and weaknesses. He took care of me last night, gave me an outlet for my emotions. I know that He will continue to be faithful throughout my life in this area. As my friend said last night, "When you know that God is sovereign, you just look at life differently."
"I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.' You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. If you make the Most High your dwelling -- even the Lord, who is my refuge -- then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 'Because he loves me,' says the Lord, ' I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.'" -Psalm 91
