10 Responses to Feeling Pressed Down? How to Not be Crushed

  1. Angi – I just love this devotional message you have shared with us!
    I don’t recall “ever” reading that Isaiah verse although I am often reading in “Isaiah”.
    I agree – all refining is done via the caring hands of the One who knows best what He wants refined.
    Being open to what that is can bring meaning out of times that, without Him, would remain in deep mystery.

    I also loved being reminded of the faithfulness of Ruth and what all came forth for her in her obedience and led her to Boaz.
    What a full and inspiring read through your thoughts.
    Thanks so much!

    • Thank you Lynn for the encouragement. This verse speaks to me about God’s mercy too. Jesus was crushed so we don’t have to be! He loves us so much.

  2. Thanks for this great insight Angie – not sure I’d thought about that.
    Love when God plants a verse (seed) and follows it with reinforcement in other ways – time to look deeper!
    Blessings,
    Fiona

    • Fiona, I love when the Lord reveals something new to us and opens our eyes to a deeper meaning. I thank God that even though we may “feel” crushed His eye is upon us.
      God bless you!

  3. Thank you so much Angi.
    God blessed you. For Courageous verse. God prunes us so that we bear fruit. For my Christian life.
    To be Christ like. As I obey God.
    I THANK GOD I HAVE HIM.
    AND HE GAVE ME HOPE.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH LISA.
    FOR BEING A FRIEND.
    THERE IS SOMETHING MORE.
    BECAUSE GOD LOVES US SO MUCH.

    • I’m late in responding Venus, but I wanted to reach out to you and say that you are so loved by the Lord. I thank God that He is with us to comfort us and strengthen us. Jesus love you and I do too!
      Love and blessings,
      Angie

  4. Thank you so much for your devotional, I really need it today. It is perfect timing for me – as always, when it is God’s word. I am an avid cook and having the image of the threshing floor is perfect to remind me of Jesus’ promises to His people.

  5. Wow! Soooo cool that God gave the same message the next day to get your attention, Angie! Love it when God surprises like that. It immediately made me pay attention to your message. Loved your 3 thoughts that arose from this….. very special. As others have said, it’s inspiring, so thank YOU!

    Your words & prayer really prepared me well for the beautiful video clip that Lisa added to this message. Very teary! God bless you both. LOTSoluv Kerryn

    • I know Kerryn, isn’t God incredible! I love when He confirms a message to me that He wants me to pay attention to. I often need that reminder. I love how He surprises us too.

      The video brought tears to my eyes. I just love Nick’s story. He is amazing!
      May God bless you with His grace and peace tonight sweet Kerryn.
      Love you <3
