Day 12: Weightless Stuff


Oh It is Monday~

What is the stuff that drives you crazy?

Do you ever feel crazy because you allow "stuff" to drive you crazy?

I do~

especially when frustration gets the best of me

over the most trivial things.

Frustration

If the little stuff frustrates you, you are frustrated

If the big stuff frustrates you, you are frustrated.

It doesn't matter to God

how little or how big the cause of your frustration is

because God cares about all your

Little Stuff.

If He

Knows ever hair on our head

Knows when you sit and rise

Knows every word before you speak it

Don't you think He cares if you lost your keys?

And He cares about your

Big Stuff~

because

"in all things God works for the good of those who love Him" Romans 8:28

He is working behind the scenes,

when our limited eyesight

is unable to see beyond the clouds.

His eyes~

His vision for your life is perfect.

He sees beyond the darkness

He sees beyond the suffering

He sees the light at the end of the tunnel

because

He is the Light

always shining in our lives whether we see it or not.

He just asks that we trust Him,

In ALL things.

We are not to choose when we want to trust.

It is easy trusting God when everything is running smoothly~

but boy oh boy

when something jumps out of nowhere on my smooth path

Is my immediate response to trust God?

Is your immediate response to trust God?

Oh how I want to trust God in all things~

to remain "still" in His Presence

because I know

He is God,

The Lord of my life~

Always.

And when I do

Peace replaces

Frustration.

Therefore

let's lose another stubborn pound

that weighs us down

and fast from

Frustration!

Instead of allowing

Frustration

over "stuff"

to get the best of you~

"Be Joyful Always" ~in God, because of Him

"Pray Continuously" ~communicate to God about all your stuff

"Give Thanks in All Circumstances" ~not for the circumstance, but in it

"For this is God's Will for You in Christ."

I Thessalonians 5:16-18
