Stress Free?

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.  John 16:33


In this world there will be trouble
There will be heartache and pain
Stand strong in The Lord
Continue to praise His name

Struggles will come and go
Difficult times will arise
Hold tight to the One True God
Look toward the heavenly skies

Mistakes will be made
Regrets creep up from the past
Let The Lord bring you through
Know that this too will pass

Trials will overwhelm
Tribulations test endurance
Rest in the refuge of God
Sit at His throne with confidence

Satan will attack with might
Causing the mind to go askew
Trust in The Lord
He will bring you through

In Time….


Sometimes, as we journey through this life, we make mistakes and then we have to clean up the mess!   However, it is through the clean up process that we build character, learn perseverance, and build our trust and reliance on God.  Though the process is sometimes difficult, the rewards are well worth it if we let God move through the mess, the clean up, and the learning.  He will guide.  He will protect.  He will strengthen.

For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to his purpose.  For those God foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be firstborn among many brothers.  Moreover, those he predestined, he also called; and those he called he also justified; and those he justified, he also glorified.  What then shall we say to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us?  Romans 8:28-31

The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid.  What can man do to me?  Psalm 118:6

As a child of God you stand in the protection and refuge of the all knowing, all powerful, never changing, abundantly loving God of the inverse.  He has great plans for you and knows exactly how to get you there.  Will you make some mistakes along the way?  Will you detour now and again?  Will you struggle and be tempted to stay true to who God designed you to be?  Of course!  Everyone does! But God remains, and if you remain in Him, He will bless you indeed!

May the God of mercy, grace, and love keep you always in his arms, and may you trust and rely fully on Him for all you need!

With much love and prayers!
