The Upside Of Down


So, on the upside of down today, it’s all ok. You know it is! Really, deep down you know it is! Sure, maybe a lot of downer stuff, snuffed out your day really good but there’s always an upside. Always something good in the bad. Always something positive in the negative. And always, always a lesson or two to learn from the stuff that went down, to make us better not bitter. Bitter poison vibes will seeps into the very core of our spirit to plunge us to rapid ruin. So you and I and we and us, we don’t want to go there! Let’s not allow our downer disappointments to usher us into such desperate places! Tomorrow is a new day! So rest now! Rest in sweet places with your mind and let Jesus into the trouble and into the boat, much the same as He did in Matthew 8:23 – 27, when Matthew walked with Jesus and penned that old, familiar story of Jesus getting into the boat and starting across the lake with his disciples. Oh you know it well. “Suddenly a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. (What a downer!) But Jesus was sleeping. (What a downer!) The disciples woke Him up shouting, “Lord save us! We’re going to drown.(What a downer!) ” Jesus said, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith.” Then He got up and rebuked the wind and the waves and suddenly there was a great calm.”

Wow, just like that, all the fearful, downer moments in that boat were brought to peace, when even the wind and the waves obeyed Him. When your downers make you desperate, cry to the Lord, as the disciples did in that little boat beaten against the waves and tossed about into the winds. You can know He’s not really sleeping, but standing by to give you a faith check and heap of help for your heap of trouble.

He’s got your stuff, He’s got your trouble! He’s got your back! He’s in the boat, now all He needs from you is your sweet, child like faith and your sincere trust in Him!

So now, beautiful you, that really bad, downer day is placed into His very capable hands and even though it seems like He’s asleep in the trouble, you can know, He isn’t! Set your faith loose in the boat and find better not bitter.

Sweet Promises

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So ~ what about those promises from God? Those sweet treasures, whispered into your ear, richer than riches themselves and going deeper into the soul than the deepest depths of the deepest sea! They’ve come to you at a low point ~ at some moment when God spoke directly to your heart, confirming His presence, His ability, His care, His compassion, His Power, His magnitude, His grace, His Healing, His restoration, and His mercy. The moment of promise when the scars in His hands sealed the hope in our heart. Hang on to them and don’t let ’em fade into the darkness or be tossed about by violent life storms! He speaks even here ~ above the jostling winds and waves, and beckons us to stand tall and firm in the faith before Him ~ with Him ~ focused on Him, because in His serene presence is peace ~ just what you need and just what you need now!!

“The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving towards all He has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts us all who are bowed down.. The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food at the proper time.. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.”
Psalm 145: 13b, 14, 15, 16
