We live in a world that is good at problem solving. Have a problem, just Google your question and a slew of search results offer you a different approach. Our world rewards productivity and results. We are so thin on time, we become fearful of wasting whatever slivers of time we have.
We forget that for life is a journey to experience God and not a plan to execute for him. We need to remember the most beautiful things in life, that truly sustain and give us meaning, take time to grow and be nurtured.
We were made to be God’s beloved. Renewed. Vibrant.
He’s placed in us a part of Him that no amount of productivity, goal-setting, or accomplishment can fulfill. God’s placed in you and me a spiritual whitespace, a longing for beauty and rest that awakens with feelings of desire or even weariness.
It’s in those honest moments of reflection, God’s quiet voice still whispers to us and invites us to be known.
When my soul is troubled, I need to stop and hear God’s words of love — rather than distracting myself with doing more and ignoring my heart.
Is your soul feeling weary too — even though you’re getting things done and all looks well on the outside?
Sweet Kindreds, the next time worries start to threaten your peace, remember these 7 beautiful promises from God. Which one speaks to your heart today?

7 Promises from God to Remember When You Feel Troubled
Even among the daily routine, there is a quiet Voice — God’s whispers of love — that no amount of busyness, weakness, guilt, failure, brokenness, stress, or hurt can erase:
1. I will be your shelter. I will be your home. No matter where your journey takes you, you belong to Me. “You are my shelter and my shield; I put my hope in Your word.” (Psalm 119:114)
