I, the creator of the universe, am with you and for you. What more could you need? When you feel some lack, it is because you are not connecting with me at a deep level. I offer abundant life; your part is to trust me, refusing to worry about anything.
It is not so much adverse events that make you anxious as it is your thoughts about those events. Your mind engages in efforts to take control of a situation, to bring about the result you desire. Your thoughts close in on the problems like ravenous wolves. Determined to make things go your way, you forget that I am in charge of your life. The only remedy is to switch your focus from the problem to my presence. stop all your striving, and watch to see what I will do. I am the Lord.
Romans 8:31-32; Micah 7:7
If I'm honest with myself, I do go to the Lord in prayer- but I need to more often. I need to go to him first before my focus on problems take hold, before my worry consumes me, before my feeling lack creeps in.
I am so very thankful for this life and everything the Lord has provided for my family.
Family is everything.
Then we escaped for the afternoon into town, hitting up a few stores, some in and out french fries for a snack, and picked up a movie on the way home for the evening. That eve our son played outside till dinner with a friend in the yard- being boys- building bug villages out of yard materials. Our daughter read, listened to music, sang and finished up a birthday list. We all came together for dinner and settled in for the night with a few movies and to bed late. A wonderful family day.
Me and my big girl, Sadie.
Count your blessings, be thankful and go to the Lord when you are faced with challenges in Life.
Happy Sunday friends and family.
