Broken Blessing

 

Ok, so you’ve got more than enough on your mind and on your plate for now. Where do you turn when it appears that all turns seem left and not right? Doesn’t God hear and see that our faith is real? Why then, does this go on forever without some answers somewhere? Yeah, life is so daily and the battles rage and the sickness lingers, and the broken flounder and the heart breaks, and the finances press in, and the deadlines crowd and oh yeah, the pressure of it all is on overload and it’s all on you! Faint of heart, take heed, ‘because in God’s economy these things hold blessing so difficult to find when the mind is dwelling on the hardship of it all.

In Psalm 121: 1 the Psalmist prays the prayer that we need to pray, “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.…

So it’s time once again for complete surrender and giving up and a giving over to the One in control. The Sovereign God who really knows what’s up and what’s going on in your world of trouble. He cares, He really does and He’s there to take that whole weight off your shoulders and give you rest you need for that heart, mind, and beautiful soul. Take Him up on His offer to help. Give it over yet again and walk away from the chaos, knowing it’s all left in good hands. He works with precision and order and He won’t answer a moment too soon or a moment too late. As a matter of fact, His answer might come weeks later and so far removed from our prayer that in our humanness, we forget and think it’s a coincidence. So be alert! It will all be perfected, and just at the proper time!

So ~ keep your eyes open for the little things and miracles along the way, because even the smallest things that could easily go unnoticed are the blessings hidden in the hardship. Yeah, there’s blessing in brokenness, so be broken, then and find blessing there.

James 1:12
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

Be Still

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

Are you in the rat race? It’s a dog eat dog world out there with wars and fightings among the nations and the countries but also within ourselves there are grumblings and gossip and wars; ~ within our relationships and within our own circles of influence life is bitter and unsettled. God’s direct command to His people was to “Be Still” ~ just be still and know Him! Just cease with the busyness and the worries, the jealousies and the schemes and the strivings to get ahead – to get more! Just stop it and rest! Find peace in Him! Let it go! Slow the activities of the mind and just bask in His omnipotence and in His omnipresence. Exalt Him! Trust Him and let Him mend your brokenness, cradle you in his watch care and in His grace care, because He, the Lord of Hosts ~ The Sovereign One who knows the end from the beginning in this world and yours is powerful and knows you and is with you and will take your concerns and fight your battles if only you hand them over in complete surrender. Let’s take Him out of the box we so easily confine Him to, and let Him fix it and do what he does best!

Psalm 46: 10
“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.”

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.”

Making Your World “Go Round”

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So, what’s on your “Go To” list? Those things that you think you can’t live without and the things that completely consume your thoughts, either in worry or pleasure? The things that you spend your money on and trick you into thinking their possession will satisfy your craving? The friends that allow you to fit like a glove and help you to blend in with the wallpaper regardless of their influence? The higher step on the ladder of success at all cost and maybe at someone else’s expense? All these things can make our world “Go Round” yet subtly consume our energy levels leaving us completely exhausted both physically and spiritually. When they become our passion they become our pride and our god! Remember pride comes before a fall so take care to stay balanced in all the good things of life. Practice the balancing act by beginning your day with God and letting Him in on your thoughts and plans. He already knows what they are so let Him help you with that. Be challenged to go deeper with Him in your faith walk! Give it all over and find that precious peace that results in letting go!

Exodus 20:1-26
“And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,”

Matthew 6:33
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Matthew 11:28
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
