Time Out

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So when the voice of confusion does its rant against your mind and steals your peace, and leaves you feeling on the brink of nothing but chaos and failure, you need to call a “time out” while you wait on the Lord for His divine direction. His voice won’t compete with the noise of your chaotic surroundings or the noise levels of your panic, fear or worry. He wants your trust! Your complete and honest trust for your problem. Yeah, He works in that calmness of total surrender when noisy confusion dissipates and melts into tranquil moments with Him and His sovereignty. He’s all-knowing and all-powerful. All authority is His and lies in His capable hands. He saves, He keeps, He sustains. He heals, He cleanses and He forgives. Who more could mentor you through the tough decisions and choices that lie ahead? He’s promised to guide and lead the way for His children. Psalm 32:8-9 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.” So ~ beautiful soul, don’t hide behind confusion and stubborn will. Do not let one more thing weight you down! Not one thing! Go to your maker! Get with Him for counsel and help in your time of need. You’ll find unconditional love there! You’ll find Him a God of mercy, grace and compassion. He waits to hear from you. He waits to quiet the noise of your confusion, and heal your wounds and mend your brokenness. He waits to open new doors of opportunity and the grace to rise to the challenge. Trust Him!

Psalm 25:4-5

“You, in Your great compassion, Did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, To guide them on their way, Nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go.”

In A Stew?

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So you’ve worried yourself into a stew and now look at you at the end of the day. What can you do? You’re exhausted and turned upside down, inside out and wrong side in. Has it helped? Face it beautiful soul, nothing was accomplished by your fretting because nothing ever is. Jesus Himself, told us so in His own words in Matthew 6:27, when He asked His listeners a pointed question ~ “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” So the words from our Savior and Lord ring in our ears and we still don’t get it because we just can’t turn that issue over and relinquish control. Somehow we so falsely believe that worry is power over our problem and so we keep the stew a bubblin’ and the energy levels drop dead at our feet as we drag our worries to every corner of the planet. Our enemy is out to bring us to defeat and wherever we go, we’ll find that crazy worry just beats us there to beat us up, to laugh in our faces and defy our trust in the God we say we believe in and the God who cares so deeply for us.

Oh these moments are moments for your beautiful soul to take a stand against the enemy and inhale God’s grace and let the depth and the height of His sovereign power sink into your heart and mind. These are the moments to reach out to the Lord of our lives, our Salvation Giver, our Provider and our Sustainer through all things. These are the moments to just fall into simple child – like trust and trust Him! Cast your burden on the God who has your back. Nothing will touch you that He hasn’t ordered and if He orders it and brings you to it, You can know, that you know, that you know, that He will bring you through it!

1 Peter 5: 6 7 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.…

Don’t let him get to you through worry!

Are you willing to accept it? Then do!

Some things are just too difficult to give up and so we secretly hang on to them but He understands! He really does! He knows the struggle of our humanity and how easy it is to succumb to it’s pitfalls and to fall into the traps so readily made available to us. Our weaknesses are just so relentlessly there all the time and If it happens again His grace will meet you there as always, although His desire and His grace is sufficient to totally free us once and for all from whatever has us bound! Accept His grace for that too! His grace totally exceeds the darkness of this wretched world. We have to want it though so decide today to renew your heart and your mind with His help. Change directions in your mind, heart and soul and be freed from the pitfalls that take you down!

For all your weariness and stress, just sit back and breathe deeply! Relax your shoulders and your mind, as you give God what’s on your heart just one more time. The nagging worry that persistently nips at your heels ~ give it over to Him!! That fear that paralyzes ~ exchange it for trust in your Faithful Heavenly Father who knows the end from the beginning and is sovereign over all.

Entanglement in the worry/fear web tires the mind and zaps the body of energy. To keep it subdued check in with a God who can manage it all. Go to Him, the source of your strength for power up, refuel and rejuvenation.

Isaiah 40:31
“But 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.
