A dear older friend who lives alone told me recently that she’s never really alone, because she can talk to God anytime she wants. What a precious reminder that God is always with us. One of God’s names is Emmanuel, which means “God with us.”

“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”– Psalm 94:19
Jesus said, in this world we would have troubles. He didn’t promise to take us out of this world, or to take away our problems, but He did promise to walk with us through every valley, to catch every tear, and to comfort, guide, and help us as we trust in His Word.
When troubles come and you’re feeling anxious and afraid, talk to God. It’s not wasted words, like talking into the air. He’s really there. You gotta believe… have faith that He’s with you, listening, caring, consoling.
When anxiety is great within you, let God be your consolation and restore your peace and joy!

When I’m feeling blue, my dogs motivate me to get out and walk. And when I do, I always gain fresh perspective and feel happier!
Life is tough, and more often than not we find ourselves sitting inside lamenting our problems in the dark rather than getting outside and letting nature and sunshine help us heal.
Personally, I think dog owners have an amazing advantage in this area. Dogs need their daily walks or playtime outside. What better motivator to lay aside our problems and get outside and hang out with our furry friends!
If you’re feeling sad or troubled in heart, I’d like to encourage you to get your walking shoes on, and get outside. Let your dogs lead you to beautiful places where nature soothes the weary soul and vibrant colors ignite feelings of hope. Breath in the fresh air and exhale any worry and fear. See God in creation, be encouraged, and give thanks.
There are countless amazing benefits to walking your dog. These are just a few I’ve found personally helpful.
