Needy Today?

So, what do you need from God today? Peace maybe? Well dear one, You are blessed because He’s promised to give it! John 14:27 reminds us of His words,

“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.”

Hey, beautiful one, just now ~ step into it, in your troubled mind, and bask in its warm stability. It’s all over you, warming your innermost soul with radiance as you allow His peace to embrace the overwhelming fears you feel.

Maybe it’s strength you need today for the impossible? Well, you’re blessed because He, Himself, “is” strength and He’s our strength for those impossible moments too. All those things that press in without a speck of hope in our own strength, are covered under His. His very presence brings authority and power into our fragility and into our fight for life. God reminds us in Paul’s words to us in 2 Corinthians 12:9,

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness”

So yeah, for that weakest part of you, He is strength and He is perfect strength. Know that He can use you in that weakness for His glory and He doesn’t need our perfection. Not even for a second. Yeah, we can fall and we can fail and He can still use it and us and He will, just as He did for Paul. Wait on Him and rest in Him! Isaiah 40:31 packs a powerful promise for God’s people. It’s our Wheaties for the day and our power-packed vitamin when we face the boot camps on our difficult journeys. Ahh, take it in and make it yours today …

” … they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Oh, what promises are our from the God of creation, from the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. We dare not brush them off or take them lightly, but today, let’s jump in head-first and take God up on His divine offers of peace and strength and whatever else you need for right now.

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!

Courage For The Promise

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So if God has given you a promise why are you discouraged and down in the dumps? He can not lie and He can not break a promise. He will see it through one way or another. If your prayer didn’t receive an answer this week, hang on it may come next week or in two weeks and perhaps you may not put it together when it happens because the answer will be so subtle and the enemy will want you to think it’s just co-incidence. Be on guard for his deception and don’t succumb to his defeat. Remain courageous in God’s victory and remember His promise to Joshua.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Courage rather than discouragement will bring us into the promises of God.
