Let it Go!! Trust!!

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever,
For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.
~ Isaiah 26:3-4

conquer

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7

In times where your mind wanders and you feel your thoughts drifting to negativity or areas of darkness and fear, bring them captive to the Lord. Bring them into His presence, surrendering them, and letting God bring you back to His light and peace. Yes, this is a hard process, but the more frequently you do it, the easier it becomes. When you give it all to God, He promises to bring you peace and comfort, to lead you in the path everlasting. That doesn’t mean the pain will go away or the circumstances will change in an instant, but it does mean that God will be with you through them, reminding you that He is bigger than anything you may face, that He is stronger than the challenges, that He knows the direction you must go to achieve His perfection! Let go and let God! All my love, and as you go through your day, may you find your heart and mind focused on the glory and beauty of God!

Praise the Lord ~ Hillsong United: Even When It Hurts

Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
~ Psalm 150

Though the clouds come and storms rage around you–Praise the Lord. Though life beats you up and tries to destroy you–Praise the Lord. Though the tides may wash over, bringing pain–Praise the Lord. Though grief overwhelms and sorrow surrounds–Praise the Lord. Though death may come and life just hurts–Praise the Lord. PRAISE be to God for he is working all things for your good, that you may obtain eternal life and righteousness! There is nothing in this world that can separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39), nothing that can cause him to leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8), nothing that can take His love away from you! Praise God!

The Love of the Lord ~ Inspired by Morning and Evening written by Spurgeon

As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,
And its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the loving kindness of the LORD is from everlasting
To everlasting on those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children,
To those who keep His covenant
And remember His precepts to do them.
~ Psalm 103:15-18 ~

heart cross

Throughout your life, it is easy to look back and ponder all the experiences you have been through–The good times and the bad. The joyful times and the sorrow filled times. The times you had an abundance of blessings and the times where life seemed void of any necessity. No matter the experiences, God has always been there, gently speaking His life into your heart and soul, surrounding you with His never-ending love and guiding you through every walk of life, be it the wilderness moments or those in green pastures.

Take comfort in knowing that God’s grace has been sufficient throughout your life. Look back in remembrance of His love for you and all that He has done to make the you beautiful, strong, and courageous person you are today.

As Spurgeon stated so eloquently:

” ‘For I am persuaded, that neither death;
nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’
Now, soul, is not thy love refreshed?
Does not this make thee love Jesus?
Doth not a flight through illimitable plains
of the ether of love inflame thy heart and compel thee
to delight thyself in the Lord thy God?
Surely as we meditate on ‘the love of the Lord,’
our hearts burn within us,
and we long to love him more.”

May you feel the Love of God from now into eternity, knowing that he holds you always in the palm of his hand! All my love <3

Power of Words….

tongue

One of the fruits of the Spirit is self control….not other control! No matter how people treat you, do you take the time to be the light of Christ? If others insult, do you still offer a kind word? If others condemn, do you still encourage? It is easy to say nice things to and about those that we like and love, but how much more rewarding to say kind words to and about those we struggle to get along with?!?

~ Proverbs 12:18 ~ There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, But the tongue of the wise brings healing.
~ Proverbs 15:1 ~ A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

May the words of your lips and meditations of your heart be glorifying to God. All my love and blessings for a great night! <3
