Deuteronomy 31:8

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”           

Deuteronomy 31:8 reminds us to stay out of the pit where negative thoughts wait to strike. In this pit, these thoughts want to drag us under and keep us down.

You are feeling a bit too confident! You don’t get to feel this good. Who do you think you are?

This is great one for me, especially lately, because if something could have gone wrong- then it did. Ever have one of those days? Or weeks? We’ve all been there.

Of course something went wrong, you aren’t cut out for all of this! You are in way over your head. 

I know in my heart, I may be going through some growing pains, but this will pass and I’ve been doing a pretty damn good job handling a lot of tricky scenarios. Sometimes, I just need to give myself some credit for that. And lean on Him… so I did.

This verse came to me at just the right time. “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

If we can only hold off those nagging, bitchy thoughts till He can cut in.

He doesn’t leave. He is right there, just waiting for his cue and that cue has to come from you.
