Lord another month is about to fall off the calendar. The year has been so full and gone so swiftly, I want to slow it down. I want more time with You, my Lord. So this morning I must capture my thoughts, thus I command: "Quiet mind; quit the racket. Just be still and
Hear what my Lord would say to me":
Quiet your body as well Mary. Yes you look at the responsibilities of the coming 3 weeks, and you are allowing anxiety to creep in and take over your physical body. This causes imbalance. What is it that you need to do?
You are right, Lord. That is just what is going on! And I know what to do:
I give these next 3 weeks to You. You run them Your way. You be in charge. Show me the way to be still during them, and I will float through the time as a leaf on a stream riding the current. Already I feel the tension seeping out of my body.
My God, You are so good to me. Thank You for caring about every little thing in my life. And Jesus, thank You for telling me that You will carry my burdens, I carry Your light burden; yes, I will put all my trust in You.
Matthew 11:28-30 (AMPC)
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
That’s just what You did Jesus. I was stressed about being responsible for the kids for so long. My stomach was reacting, my troubled sleep was a result of it. I knew I needed to come to You. And You, faithful as always, hit the nail squarely on the head, revealed the problem, and gave me the solution. You are so good to me! Thank You!
My friends, are you in a time of stress right now? Are circumstances burdening you down? Is your physical condition bearing the brunt of this dis-ease? Well you don't need some man created superhero. Jesus is the solution. He is always prepared to relieve any stress connected with our life; just go to Him and ask. Our God is faithful and He is powerful enough to handle everything in our behalf. He will cause all things to turn out for our best interest when we rely on Him. Claim His Word:
Romans 8:28 (AMPC)
We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose.
We are all God's kids, and God loves you and me so much! It is His fondest wish to demonstrate His love for/in us. If you have not done so already, open the door and invite Jesus into Your life. It’s so much easier going through everyday with supernatural help. If you think that is a crutch and prefer do do it all by yourself, go for it. That’s the ways of a 2 year old~ ”self, I want to do it myself!”. Believe me, living life with God is so much more fulfilling!
I love you and My wish for you is:
2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
