A Conversation with God

I feel so distant from you, God.
"Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
    Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
    I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
(Isaiah 41:10 NLT)"
I feel so anxious and alone, Lord.
"Do not worry! Tell Me everything on your heart
and reflect on who I am.
Cast your cares on Me because I care for you
(Phil 4:6 NLT and 1 Peter 5:7 NKJV)!"
I am lost for words!
"You don't have to come up with them by yourself
Ask the Holy Spirit and He will intercede for you!
He knows your heart and groanings. 
He will come through
(Romans 8:26-27 NKJV)."
I feel lonely with so much hurt and pain in my heart.
"I have number all your wanderings
and had every one of your tears in a bottle!
You can trust in me!
Man cannot do anything to you
(Psalm 56:8,11 NKJV)!"
Why do I feel like I am the only one who is going through this?
"You are not the only one going through this.
There are many others who have gone or am going through
what you are going through.
At the end, I am going to perfect, established, strengthen, and settle you.
It is by my grace
(1 Peter 5:9-10 NKJV)!"
I know that you have not changed but why does it feel that way?
"Hold onto that thought!
You are right!
I am the same yesterday, today, and forever
(Hebrews 13:8)"!
I hate feeling so attacked all the time!
"Yes you are being attacked
because he doesn't want you to trust in Me.
He doesn't want you to draw near to Me.
Take up My words and lean on them!
Take up My righteousness that is in you!
Hold onto your salvation and what that means!
All of this means you are going somewhere.
It isn't your husband or your kid.
It is your flesh and him.
Stand firm! Resist him!
He will flee
 (Eph 6:11,13; 1 Peter 5:9 NKJV)!" 
I know I need to read Your word to draw near
but why is it so hard?
"Keep doing it!
Trust in Me!
Keeping drawing near to Me
because I WILL draw near to you
(James 4:8a NKJV)"
Linking up with Jennifer #tellhisstory and Holley Coffee for your heart


  1. Love this. A friend of mine sent me something similar to this about a year ago and it was so so encouraging.The truth tethers.

  2. Yes, this is how He talks to us. Love it, Kristina!

  3. Kristina,
    I love how you verbalized feelings we all share and countered them with God's truth! It does take effort and perseverance but when we can stand up to our feelings and emotions, we are changing the conversation! Love this!

  4. This is great! These are amazing truths to hold onto and I like how you applied them to the different situations.

  5. So sorry, sweet friend! I am right there with you. We have been under intense spiritual attack, also, and it is very hard to intercede like we want to when we are so depleted. But, all glory to God, Who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord!!

  6. I love the way you have written this. All of it is encouraging I'm going to reread it later today
