Offerings Of Praise

dsc_0021-nested-saphire-graceful
So when the thanksgiving celebration is over and the turkey is gone and the meal has been devoured are the hearts still thankful ~ or not? Do we still persevere and run the race in thankfulness or have we somewhere along the way picked up negative vibes of other stuff to slow us down, and push our gratefulness to the back burner? Pushed it to some out-of-sight, remote corner of our world where it’s dark and dismal? A place where anxious worry and fears, oh so real fears, tug at us from all the far corners of the earth and overpower our clear thinking? What is it that won’t let go of the mind so that you can find the peace you desire, and need? Yeah, we all have the moments when we forget to be thankful for the small stuff because anxiety trumps (no pun intended) our thankful spirit! Worry takes over life and we begin living in nooks and crannies of despair simply because it all seems so hopeless. There’s a whole bunch of us living there, in the crowded corners of fear, wondering our next move and what it should be! There’s no empty space! No clear way! No direct path out and so what’s one to do as a prisoner in your own body?

Beautiful you ~ Track back to that corner of gratefulness, wherever you left it and find the blessing in the bleak! Track back to the good and yeah, even the not so good and find the golden threads of promise that have held you together this long. Untie them! Unravel them and take a good, long look at what you hold in your hand. Promises of God? His love, His guidance, His faithfulness, His Blessings? Yeah, so many, some mixed in with hurts and disappointment because life is life but things that God used to make you who you are today. He doesn’t waste pain! He uses every trace of it to strengthen our weakness and pull us out and up from where we are to where we can be. He still cares and that’s reason to offer praise from even a hurting heart! An offering of praise to our creator is the best antidote for anxiety. David lamented while hiding in a cave, fearing for his life, and writes his heart felt prayer in Psalm 142: 5, “I cry to your O Lord; I say ‘You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.” Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me. Set me free from my prison that I may praise Your name.” and then He does just that in Psalm 145:1, “I will exalt You, my God the King;…great is the Lord and most worthy of praise.”

So yeah, today in that anxious corner find the blessing in the bleak and let praise pour out of your grateful heart to the One on the heavenly throne. The Sovereign One in charge and watch the fear dissipate and melt away from your mind! Enter into the land of the living once more and allow God to be your refuge and your portion!

Watch The Giant Fall


So for today don’t hide behind your fear of failure. Face the challenges as they come and ~ they will come! You can be sure of that. They’ll come in all shapes and sizes, the big and little giants ~ and look you in the eye and defy you but if you walk with the God who’s in control, you walk in His victory because He’s already won and that’s a win, win situation. So beautiful soul ~ don’t succumb to the lie that our enemy would have us believe! You’re not inferior! You’re not defeated! You’re not going down as a failure because persevering in the faith is to hold fast to our ‘Hope in Christ’ through all the challenges! All the difficulties ~ all things that come our way! Great or small He’s got it all and so we move out in confidence to face that giant and little by little watch it fall before our eyes and before the Sovereign One ~ the giver of life and the One who wears the Victor’s crown. He’s got this! In obedience just trust Him!

Deuteronomy 21: 1
“When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.”

Deuteronomy 21: 3,4
“He shall say: “Hear, O Israel, today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be faint-hearted or afraid; do not be terrified or give way to panic before them. For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”

Let It Go

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So let’s embrace “Surrender” today. You know, you’ve been holding back and you’ve held on too tightly for too long but you know there’s a certain, sweet peace in letting it go, and in giving it over to the Sovereign God in control of it all. But you just can’t do it! You can’t let go of that control that you think you have ~ and yet deep down you know you have no control ~ no control at all! The more you try the worse it gets.

Those worries, fears, concerns, secret things that lie tucked away in the deep compartments of your soul ~ all those unforgiven moments that gnaw daily through the comfort zone of your life, chewing a hole through your heart and mind leaving you bitter and very uneasy prove you have no control over the issues. Your control has only left you feeling helpless, empty and alone. Today, surrender it ~ hold it out, and let it go with the wind! Blow it towards Heaven ~ towards God and let Him have it once and for all. He cares ~ He really does. He desires our complete and full out surrender not our half – hearted attempts of trusting Him. So for the big or the small ~ simply trust ~ give it over and exchange it for God’s peace and a sweet peace of mind.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
