Some days, well, I just don’t have anything particular I wish to write about, rather, I don’t feel Him leading me about a certain thing so I just sit and try to wait on the Lord, ask Him for a little direction and some days I get it, other days not so much. But, maybe not having something that feels like a burden or a problem that I need His help with is a good thing. On those days, like this morning, I ask Him what do I need from His word to help me and, still nothing that pops into my mind. Oh, I still have a lot to work on, as do we all, but on days like this morning I will pause, go sit on the porch, sip on my coffee and think that days without one thing weighing heavy on my mind is a good day to praise Jesus just for what He is and what He did for me. God is so good. He is here for me on the good days, the less than good days and on the really rough days. ALWAYS and forever. Praise Him for His mercy and grace.
At this point in my life, there are a lot of unknowns. I am facing any number of things that SHOULD be stressing me. So many changes over the last few years and months that have created more than a little angst and despite that, I have peace. I feel Him saying to me, “relax my son, I’ve got you covered.” He is giving me peace in uncertain times, He is lifting my burdens. He is removing the stress and taking care of the “heavy lifting” on troublesome matters and no matter that I start to think about the things that should be worrying me, well, I just can’t seem to be able to worry. GOD IS SO GOOD!
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13
Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
Yes, if I were thinking in the flesh, I WOULD be stressed, but Praise the Lord, He has my back as He gives me peace that really doesn’t make sense to the human mind but when one allows Him to, Christ will give one that peace and joy!
Lord, I worship and praise You for the joy and peace You give me in times that I should be troubled. That You take on my burdens and give me rest. Thank You Lord for all the blessings and mercy and for the blessed peace that only You can give. I pray in the name of Jesus that You continue working in me, give me the heart and mind of Christ that I may be a worthy vessel for You. Draw us all closer to You. Show us Your plan for our lives.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope He blesses you all and that you take the time to be a blessing to someone else today as well.
