Between the pollen and the deluge yesterday I gave myself permission to have a pajama day. I do love a good pajama day, don’t you?
It’s been a weird first quarter this year. I don’t know why but it’s a fact. As I was having my on private church on-line this morning I ran across this message and really struck a chord so I decided to share it with you in hopes that it would help you also.
It’s entitled: Sometimes, I only have 2 little words.
“We may not always understand everything that happens. We may not always know how things are going to end up! But we can understand that God loves us. He has a plan for our lives! He is all-knowing and all-powerful. He is present; He is not just the God of yesterday or of tomorrow – He is the God of today. And He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
As we walk in integrity, as we apply His Word in our lives, as we acknowledge our dependence and our need to hear from Him, there is a rest we come into, knowing that as we stand in simple faith today, tomorrow is also in His hands.
The important thing is that we are standing now in faith and trust, in the place He has us, today. As we do this day by day, we grow into a poise of spirit that will continue to trust the Lord, whenever, and however, He moves in our lives, no matter how big or how small our situations might be.
“Abba, Father!” These words may be, at times, the only words we have. But they are a powerful prayer, one that positions us to rely on our Father. This cry enables us to pray not words limited by our own thoughts, opinions, or understanding, but rather into the greatness of who God is, and His plan for us.
I hope you are encouraged as we start a new week. We certainly are receiving showers… let’s believe they are of blessings.
Thanks for being faithful readers and friends. I appreciate you.
