Healing, moment by moment, day to day.
Healing, moment by moment, day to day.
Today is my Moms birthday. Thirteen years gone, and she would have been 83 today.
I miss her. Not a day goes by that I don’t want to chat with her.
I want to tell her so much.
I am certain she sees all but I just want to share with her…get her opinion-hear her thoughts. I will say I think I already know most of them as I hear them in my head.
But I hope you understand that I just miss her voice, her thoughts and everyday things.
Pretty simple really.
It’s not always easy to do, especially when He shuts the door that you want to go through. Sometimes I think it is harder to see the door get closed then it is the window opening.
What do you do to keep the faith in His will and your wants?
We can’t do it alone. Resting in His grace today.
“But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by His marvelous name.” Galatians 1:15
Now when evening had come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, coming and taking courage, went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate marveled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time. So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. Then he bought fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen. And he laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Jesus observed where He was laid.
Love and blessings.
“Joshua said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.” Joshua 10:25 NIV
I have been discouraged with myself this past week. So much so that people actually see that something is wrong, that I am upset. I am not dealing well with things at work. Not that my work has changed, but the work I am doing. I am the type of person who wants my work to be perfect. It has to done perfectly. I fight with myself on this constantly.
Logically, I know that I am not perfect, nor the work I do is perfect. I know this, but it doesn’t change the fact that I want it to be. My enemies are my inside voices. Those that tell me I am not good enough. That I can’t do it all. (Again, I know that I can’t but some days are worse than others.) My self worth has been low lately.
I over commit to things in January. I am overwhelmed, although not busy. I am anxious with silly things. I want to be calm in spirit, to encourage and support those around me. One evening this past week, I came home and just cried. I tell others that when they do that it is a release. Your body can’t hold in everything anymore and needs to let things go. I feel week, and uncertain when it happens to me.
“I am with you and for you. You face nothing alone–nothing! when you feel anxious, know that you are focusing on the visible world and leaving Me out of the picture. The remedy is simple: Fix your eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen. Verbalize your trust in Me, the Living One who sees you always. I will get you safely through this day and all your days. But you can find Me only in the present. Each day is a precious gift from My Father. How ridiculous to grasp for future gifts when today’s is set before you! Receive today’s gift gratefully, unwrapping it tenderly and delving into its depths. As you savor this gift, you find Me.” – Romans 8:31; 2 Corinthians 4:18; Genesis 16:13-14 AMP —Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young
Again, making some changes. Letting go. Forgiving myself and knowing that I don’t have to do everything.
I am enough.
I needed this. Do you?
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
Blessings! And Merry Christmas! 🎄🎁
