The Weight of the World

The Weight of the World   The world is in a really sad state of affairs. Everywhere I look, I see, hear and read things which are really so sad. One brother blames another brother. One calls out another, when there is already a speck in his eye. Lives are destroyed. When if ever will this end? Even sadder the truth that a lot of these people should know better. Don’t they realise in their well meaning stances they are exacerbating world crisis? The world is in a heightened state… I don’t know if you feel it but I do. Sticks and stones may break my bones but names WILL still hurt me… You know that feeling? When you don’t think there is anything wrong but then you notice the tension in your shoulders. I mean check yourself now? Do you need to consciously relax your shoulders from the weight…

Once again encouraged…

Once again encouraged…   “When we hear each others stories, then we see the love of God in action and we are once again encouraged that He will continue to work His miracles in our lives” ~Cam Richmond~ Tell your story Share the miracles If you do even more miracles will happen! Have you ever considered that this is one way to ‘pay it forward’? Sharing the right words at just the right time can change someones day… it can change your day! The fires that we want to fuel are fires of hope, peace, faith, love, joy…. One way to fuel these fires is by piling our testimony on the fire, sharing the breakthrough, the miracle, the small mercies and the answers that we found, the ways that God came through for us, the way He cared about all the little details of our lives and that he worked…

Finding rest….

  “If you look at the world you’ll be distressed.  If you look within you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest” ~Corrie ten Boom~   I am learning to keep in mind that God is at work in my life and also in my family’s life. Sometimes this is easier said than done. There are moments where I am anxious and so worried about how things might turn out. I used to try to control them, try to have some influence in how things played out! I am learning to be at rest, look at God and let go of having that control over situations. It doesn’t mean that I can’t say what I think. It doesn’t mean I can think about it. But it does mean that I commit it to God. I bring God into each story and I thank Him that every…

Held…

.•°*”˜˜”*°•.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ.•.•°*”˜˜”*°•. Held… We are held… So many things going on in our lives. So many of us. A big world. So many people in need. I was walking just now sensing the hand of God is holding mine… I can almost feel it. He is holding your hand too if you let Him. It’s like we have all these pieces of our lives, too many to hold without dropping some. We can give all these pieces to Him. He knows where all the pieces fit. He knows which ones don’t belong to our picture. Sometimes we have fragments of other peoples lives in amongst ours, some that we are holding or keeping. They are not ours to carry or have. He is looking from above and sees that big picture and can complete the picture for us… I’m allowing Him to have all the pieces…

It’ll Work…

It’ll Work There are things that only yesterday used to work. Each day things in your life change without you even noticing. It changes in the tiniest increments barely visible to the naked eye or comprehensible by the mind. It changes in degrees, in seconds, in heartbeats, in flashes, in steps and turns, in a thought, in an attitude, in a decision or choice…. And all without our knowledge, observation, understanding, or seemingly our choice or permission. The thing is that every degree, second, heartbeat, thought, choice, is some kind of decision, either by our free will whether we are aware of that or not or by what circumstances life has thrust upon us, and even then as it is thrust upon us we have choices and decisions and reactions to make second after second after second. So when I come to the today of my life and that particular…

What Gift Can You Give?…

Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons. ~Ruth Ann Schabacker~ It’s quite amazing to look around me and see the varying gifts that I believe God has given to people and see how He is using them and their gifts. We all have our purpose no matter how big or small we see that it is, it fits into the bigger scheme of things and it is a part of a building block of our world. I have been seeing how each one of our gifts fits into the bigger picture that God has for this world and we all need to play our part in whatever big or  little way it is! My friend plays the piano, she has played since she was little girl, there was a period in her life where she played all the time and many people got to hear her and…
