Sunday Thoughts

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?

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

“Only a few Sundays a year do virtually all of us who follow Jesus on this whirling orb center on the exact same events in His earthly life.  Imagine all the dialects and accents echoing these words to high heaven this day:  Hosanna!  Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” – Beth Moore, Twitter

Sunday Thoughts

Carmen is in the process of moving from Baton Rouge to Tallahassee, and has the burden of two rents until she can find a sub-lessor.  She applied for and got a new job in her degree field (so proud).  She has been anxious about the money, and rightly so, but we have reassured her that we will help.  It will be tight, but we are able, thankfully.

She gets her anxiety from me.  Although, as her parent, I try to reassure her (sometimes more than twice in a day), she accepts it, and then takes it back.  I understand that it is hard not to.

“Thank Me for the gift of My Peace, a gift of such immense proportions that you cannot fathom its depth or breadth.  When I appeared to My disciples after the resurrection, it was Peace that I communicated first of all.  I knew this was their deepest need:  to calm their fears and clear their minds.  I also speak Peace to you, for I know your anxious thoughts.  Listen to Me!  Tune out the other voices, so that you can hear Me more clearly.  I designed you to dwell in Peace all day, every day.  Draw near to Me; receive My Peace.” – John 20:19; Colossians 3:15 – Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young

We know as children of Christ, we have peace in Him.  He reassures me, I know that.  I take back what I give to him thinking that I need to be in control.  I know that I am not, but at the time, it makes me feel better.  But in the end, it makes matters worse.  I know that if I give an issue I am struggling with to God, and let Him continue to have it, it calms me —gives me a peace and understanding.  It is when I think He is doing nothing that I take it back.  Like I know these things?

We all struggle with peace, and anxiousness, just on different levels.  People have struggled since the beginning of time with these things – maybe not a mortgage or rent – but finding shelter, and having food?  Why don’t we look back and see that we are carried?  Cared for?  Loved and reassured?   I know these things.  I question.  I struggle.

As a parent, I try to let our children know these same things, and become frustrated that they don’t listen.  I am thankful for a God that extends His care and peace over and over again without limitations.  I try to do the same for my family.  That is what we are to do, right, be like Christ?

How do you struggle?  What calms you with the daily issues of life?

Blessings.
