John 14:27 NKJV
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
FEELING ANXIOUS ~
Jesus walked upon this earth and one day he had to leave this earth. He lead by example while here and also leads by example throughout the Bible. There is a peace beyond a human understanding when you choose to rest in God. I have found over my life time that it takes time to learn and grow in all areas. I was thinking about of when I was a kid, I didn't know Jesus the way I do now. It has taken time to press forward and yet I have time of feeling anxious over things. Everything is always in our control and we must lean upon a God who can helps us.
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
In the deepest sorrow, God is there!
In the greatest joys, God is there!
Through it all, God is there!
Reaching out by faith is a choice. During the storm, we can protect ourselves by certain clothing, umbrellas, sand bags if needed and things to weather a storm. In our own lives, we have situations that suddenly come and our protect is God. To take on his thoughts and his path for each of us. Being determined to live by faith and not sight. I know this by examples in my own life. I've seen a lot and witness sitting by the bedside of a few loved ones while they passed to Heaven. It's hard and crazy tears. Deep within my stomach is pain and tears that just seem to flow like a river. Yet, I choose a peace and a deep breathe through it all.
I've also witness miracles of life. Things that seem impossible to the human mind and yet bodies were healed. I've seen both and I live to talk about it today. The joy of the Lord is my strength. My decision to help me in everyday of life.
Nehemiah 8:10 NIV
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
Today is a new day. I'm not sure what you face today but let God go with you. Allow yourself to believe big and to smile, cry or both. Life isn't always easy and life isn't always hard. Just a fine mixture in our lives and God is our source of strength. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I CARE!
