There is something to be said for decluttering. In the process we find things we forgot we had; things that simply cannot be considered clutter. Yesterday, I found this lovely quote among piles of papers no longer needed.
Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can’t handle together.
This is definitely a keeper.
Is there anything more comforting in this world than to be able to trust completely?
I am starting out my brand new year once again placing complete trust in God because I know that I can trust him with my life and all its happenings. I sometimes get excited waiting to see what He has in store for me next.
When we trust in the Lord completely it is not difficult to get excited about what He does in our lives. I have often said to Him, “Lord, I hope you know what you are doing in this situation because I sure don’t.” And lo and behold, the perfect solution is manifested in ways that I never would have expected…or sometimes, even chosen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
However you choose to spend your weekend, take a little time out to imitate this little guy. Happy weekend.
Here is one of my favorite quotes which just happened to pop up on Facebook this morning, posted by a friend on vacation. Happy Monday.
As we acknowledge Earth Day and do our best to tend to our little corner of the world, let us remember this psalm of David:
Psalm 24:1 – NIV: The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;
How many of us suffer from fear on a daily basis or even just occasionally? My last bout of fear was in 2005 while waiting for confirmation of a cancer diagnosis. It was a mind and body numbing fear until the verdict came in and I had to face it…the fear and the cancer.
Here are a few things the Bible has to say about being afraid along with that delightful song, “Whistle a Happy Tune” from the 1956 movie, The King and I.
Do not be afraid for I am with you. Genesis 26:24 NIV
The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 NIV
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. Hebrews 13:6
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Proverbs 3:24
Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 1:8
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
“Don’t be afraid; just believe.” Mark 5:36
These are a few teachings from scripture that have helped me as well as others overcome fear at one time or another.
And now…go ahead…whistle a happy tune.
Sunday…another day to give thanks, especially on our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Thanks for family, friends, food, fun, safety, blessings and all good things.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
Here is some encouragement for all those going through difficulties at this moment in time. It is very beautiful and worth sharing. Please enjoy, whatever your beliefs.
Many years ago, one of my daughters gave me a plaque containing these words. It has been one of my daily reminders ever since.
This is a day the Lord has made….
