I feel you demanding that I pick you up, demanding to feel My Presence. I see your anger and feel your frustrations. I see you child. Walk confidently beside Me. I have not left you and I never will. I am teaching you to walk by faith, not by what you feel or think. But to trust Me and put one foot in front of the other. It is one thing to believe Me, and another to trust Me. Trusting Me is doing what you believe. Be at peace here beside Me and know that I will help you walk. There is a place of choice in every moment. In this place of choice, there are two teachers, one teacher is your human nature, and one teacher is My Holy Spirit. Human nature teaches you to rely on your emotions, feelings and thoughts and will bring about loss and death. My Spirit, teaches you to rise above these emotions, feelings and thoughts and to live according to My will.  Today I want you to make a conscious choice to walk in the Spirit and reject thoughts of depression, self pity and anger. When you feel these things confess them as part of your sinful nature and I will give you life and direction  in their place and allow you to have peace.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

Zechariah 4:6 Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.
