Sunday’s Inspiration for your Perspiration 4/7/2012 & Some Exciting News!

faith

It’s been a long challenging past few weeks for myself and my family.  Health issues, another deployment and unexpected things have popped up.  So the above is perfect, just perfect.  Faith is the key to my ever-changing crazy life.

I have been pretty consistent in reading my “Jesus Calling” ( by Sarah Young ) daily devotional. And I continue to trudge along trying to finish “The Purpose Driven Life” (by Rick Warren), and yes its taking me forever.  However I have to say that I am enjoying them both  immensely.  In fact I am not even sure I want to get to the end.  I already have plans to re-read them both!

So with each “challenge” that has come along I have found myself turning to God more and more.  Much more than I ever have in the past.  Now don’t get me wrong I’m not here to “toot my own horn” no-no.  This isn’t a “look at me, look how good I am” no not at all.  That would be self-serving and not about God at all.  I just want to share that for me, my getting into the habit of  “getting into the Word” is really making some positive changes in my attitude and my life.  Instead of freaking out about things I am trying to remember to hand them over to God.  And even when I do freak I find myself reflecting later on how I could have handled things better by saying a quick prayer or talking to God on the spot!

What is the true sense of worry other than it’s senselessness.  Does that make sense, lol.

Everything is in God’s plan and His hands anyway so metaphorically “handing it over to God”  is really just doing the thing he made us to do.  Converse with Him, be secure and protected under his wings.

Psalm 91:4

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
I need to remember that even in the unpleasant, unexpected and unwelcome things that come my way Jesus said…
John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
So I am hoping to be more consistent on keeping my eyes on Him.  Remembering to take time for him and to pray about ALL things good and bad so that I keep constant contact with the one you loves me more than anyone else.  For a long time I didn’t ask for God’s help.  I felt compared to others problems (disease, homelessness, hunger) mine were not even worth the breath of my words never mind the ear of God.  But a few years ago the wonderful Bible Study group I belonged to put it to me this way.  God is your Father.  Who would want you to turn to Him for everything, both good and bad, more than Him?
Have a wonderful week everyone.

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
