A look into the Heart of an Island Castaway (Part 1)

Personal Journal Entry

Dear Me,

I know sometime you feel defeated and discouraged, like you are so far from the presence of God. I'm writing this to remind you that the Heavenly Father says He will never leave you or forsake you. He is closer to you than the air you breathe, and you are engraved into the palms of His hands.  
You are REDEEMED.  
God clothes you in the Righteousness of Jesus. "He became sin, who knew no sin, that we, through Him, might become the righteousness of God."  Not just SOME righteousness. GOD'S righteousness.  

So when you feel He is far away, remember He is right there hovering over you and living inside of you. When you are in the middle of the storm and trials of this life and they seem too much for you, realize they are too much for you on your own strength. And rejoice, because you don't rely on your own strength. You are strengthened by the infinite power of the Creator of the universe. Surrender it all to Him. I promise He can do a better job with it than you ever could. Stand in His peace and power and glory.  Rest in His presence.  Trust in Him.
