“Give up the illusion that you deserve a problem-free life.  Part of you is still hungering for the resolution of all difficulties.  This is a a false hope!  As I told My disciples, in the world you will have trouble.  Link your hope not to problem solving in this life but to the promise of an eternity of problem-free life in heaven.  Instead of seeking perfection in this fallen world, pour your energy into seeking Me: the Perfect One.” – – Jesus is Calling; John 16:33

Seems simple, right?  I know that I want all of the answers to what is going on in my life.  Difficulties are constant, at least in my world.  I know that I struggle with being overwhelmed, taking on too much, trying to be everything to everyone as I don’t ever want to disappoint others.  The list goes on and on.

All of these things will disappear if I keep my focus on Him.  Seeking quiet time, praying for peace and discernment in my daily choices.  I can’t do everything.  I know this.  Why then is it so hard to say ‘no’ or not feel guilty if I do say ‘no’ to someone or doing something.

People that know me and love me understand my limitations.  Jesus knows what I can do and what I shouldn’t be doing.  Again, why do I question Him?  I know that I have written about this before, but I truly believe in the spoken affirmation.  If we speak it (either positive or negative), we hear it and believe it.  I need to speak positive, reaffirming, loving words to myself.  Praying for those things, and it will be heard.  He will hear it.

What words do you speak to yourself or in prayer to handle daily difficulties?  I need to make mine more of hourly or even moment by moment habit.

Blessings.

Advent-Christ

Luke 2:7-19 (KJV)

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! 🎄🎁

Sunday Thoughts

Today I am thankful for the gifts of friendship. Those that God has placed in my path when I needed them the most or when they needed me.

Looking back on how God has gifted me with placement of friends, I am truly amazed at His ability to weave His love into me.

Whether they needed me at the time or I needed them…I am really not sure, but God did. He placed exactly who I needed at the right time.

How has God gifted your life? Looking back on your life, can you see His path?

Blessings.

Help–Hurricane Michael

I live in the Panhandle of Florida, approximately 75 miles from where Hurricane Michael devastated Mexico Beach, and Panama City.  Other much smaller communities were destroyed as well but aren’t talked about right now.

I have posted pictures of my family and I having fun, with no damage.  It so could have been us if the storm hadn’t turn.  We were blessed by a cold front coming from the North, that’s it.  We are helping by donating items that we purchased for the storm and didn’t use.  If you feel the need to help but don’t know where to start please see below.  If nothing else, please pray for those affected and those helping.

Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office

Many of us are being contacted by family, friends, church groups and community members wanting to do something to help in regard to Hurricane Michael.

On a consolidated effort we are recommending Volunteer Florida. They are located in Tallahassee and are the lead agency for volunteerism in Florida. Their board of commissioners are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate.

They can be reached at www.volunteerflorida.org info@volunteerflorida.org   https://www.facebook.com/VolunteerFlorida and 850-414-7400.  If you go to their website, you initially have 2 options, “donate” money or “volunteer” to choose from. Those links will take you to other pages to fill in information.

There are a lot of people that want to deliver supplies. For law enforcement, public safety, emergency workers, residents, animals, etc. We are trying to determine needs, the receiving point and coordinator for those efforts. It’s a huge effort and could sometimes cause significant logistical complications on site, and please don’t recommend anyone just head that way without coordination. They may arrive and not be allowed to enter the area, nowhere to deliver and the community doesn’t know it’s there to collect.

Blessings.
