Quiet Your Mind

So you’ve had just about enough of whatever it is, and the issues are relentless to let go. Time after time you’ve given it over and time after time it’s always there, back again just like it was before. Staring you down, defying you ~ stubborn in its willful ways. It just won’t give and it won’t give you peace! How do you deal with such a wild beast that hunts you down, stalking you like it’s prey ~ waiting for you to drop by the wayside in heaps of weariness and conundrum? Chaos has blackmailed you and defeat has sabotaged you, and there you are left like a whipped puppy ~ so innocent in it all and yet so guilt ed by worry and fear. How do we let go of it all for the umpteenth time and really let go! A good beginning is to pull your thoughts into accountability. Take control of their wildness and the overwhelming power they hold over you. Quiet your mind before God; the God who knows all, and lets nothing slip by His watchful eye! Psalm 46: 1 reminds us so beautifully that yes, indeed, “God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea…the Lord of Heaven’s armies is here among us, and the God of Israel is our fortress. Say with the Psalmist in Psalm 46:10 a direct message from God Himself, “Be still and know that I am God.”

So beautiful you, with your beautiful soul, quiet that mind of yours and feel your heart follow the tranquil pathway. Offer praise for the problem to the God in charge! Rest in Him once again and find peace

“Come everyone! Clap your hands! Shout to God with joyful praise! For the Lord Most High is awesome! He is the great King of all the earth. He subdues the nations before us, putting our enemies beneath our feet.”
Psalm 47: 1-3.

Sweet Moments With God And Coffee

Little Thoughts For Big Days

Don’t you just love those early morning hours when it’s just God and you and the whole rest of your world still sleeps? My four, little furry girls still breathe heavily on the floor at my feet and I feel so thankful for their furry, little presence and their joyful, yet ‘busy’ little bodies in the home. What would life be without them? There’s just so much to be thankful for isn’t there? And there’s just not another moment so sweet in my day as this one!

Even the issues heavy on the heart lighten just a touch, in those ‘oh so still and quiet times.’ Oh ~ maybe the rest of the world is hustling and bustling down the highway, racing the clock to make work arrival deadlines with buses to board, flights to catch and time-clocks to punch. But you? Ahh, for you, at least for just a few ‘ever so quick’ morning minutes’ while still savoring that sweet coffee ~ well, they’re just yours ~ with God! Just to let that “ever so fragile” stillness linger and the aches and pains ease ~ maybe just a bit ~ and then just to lay it all out before Him and listen to His council and advise for the day. He’s sure to let you know just what He’d like you do and just how to go about it. You can be sure that your weakness won’t hinder and that He won’t ask the impossible of you and whatever He requires He has already equipped you for. So ~ no worries, no frets! Not today! Just find that “God confidence” and let Him grace you with His supernatural power. Let Him lift you over the hurdles and the high places. Rest in the quiet moments with the Light and shine in the dark. Let hope rise within your beautiful soul and watch it bloom today through the aches and pains ~ The broken heart ~ The deadlines and the fears.

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
