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?
especially when frustration gets the best of me
over the most trivial things.
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
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
"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 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
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~
And when I do
let's lose another stubborn pound
that weighs us down
and fast from
Instead of allowing
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
