NOT AS HARD AS YOU THINK!

 

I get stressed, especially when I multitask and demand too much from myself!  The Lord doesn’t give us more than we can handle – we do!

  • Take a praise break!   Can’t thiink of anything good about your day?
  • relax your muscles
  • breath deeply
  • close your eyes
  • say “Lord, thanks for loving me!”
  • repeat until chest tightness relaxes
  • REJOICE!

The blazing sun brightens my day.

Warnings of unseen clouds bringing storms

do not dampen the sunflower’s smile or my own.

Psalm 32:10-11

King James Version (KJV)

10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.

11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Lesson: Rejoice Anyway

August 21, 2013

I asked the question

Once again,

Expecting nothing in reply.

I moved along

Heavy hearted

Wondering what option

Was left to me?

I struggled to continue along

The the path before me

And considered,

Might I be lost?

Feeling down and facing down

I saw a ray of sun

Reflected on the ground

And followed it along its merry way.

Paying close attention to the Light.

Suddenly,

I faced an unexpected blessing which,

Like the last rose of summer,995607-047

Was staring straight at me.

I moved forward.

I wondered how long it had waited

For me to come along

And find it?

No matter.

A new season was coming

And carrying with it new challenges

And new blessings.

I smiled,

I sighed,

I skipped along rejoicing!

In All Things

July 31, 2013

I hear it . . .thumb_cartoon_weather_set_showers

Thunder’s roll

I see the skies of black and gray.

The same hand that painted these

Holds the brush that brings about

The rainbow

In the wake of storms . . .

The hand that gave me eyes to see,

Ears to hear,

A heart to love.

I give you thanks.
