Day 18: IN Him


Sunday

is a day of rest

so

You are not allowed

to TRY to be

THANKFUL.

Let me explain.

The pressure

that I have put on myself

to be

"Be joyful Always. Pray Continuously.

Give THANKS in all circumstances" I Thessalonians 5:16-18

And

to

"not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,

by prayer and petition, with THANKSGIVING,

present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6

has been taking me down a

road filled with frustration and

Un~thankfulness.

Crazy as it sounds,

but when I get in the way

I get in the way.

GOD woke me up

a wee bit late this morning,

yet

HE woke me up

to the reality

of truly being

THANKFUL~

I can't be

IN Me

because

it is all about

being

IN HIM~

from the moment my eyes open in the morning

to the moment I close them at night~

and you know what

it is so much easier

IN HIM

because

what I can't

JESUS DOES~

"I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances.

I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little.

I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry,

hands full or hands empty.

Whatever I have, wherever I am,

I can make it through anything in the

One who makes me who I am." (Philippians 4:13 The Message)

So don't try to be

THANKFUL

today,

instead~

"Remain in ME, and I will remain in you.

For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine,

and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.

Those who remain in ME, and I in them, will produce much fruit.

For apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:4-5
