Good evening everyone! I sure hope that you have been enjoying your day! As for me...I made myself take the afternoon off...and my husband and I ended up watching an early Christmas movie on YouTube...and also a Christmas cooking show. I know I'm a bit early; but today, I just felt like doing something out of the ordinary...so this was it...and I enjoyed it so00 much!
One thing I'm learning more and more in my life; is to not take the hand of anxiety and let it lead me to other things...like frustration, fear and doubt...for these things only take away our joy and the peace that God longs to give us. I have found over and over again...to walk beyond anxiety and have a good talk with the Lord. It's amazing, as to how these troubled moments can be instantly turned into a peace, which truly transcends all understanding.
I remember many times in the past, when I would never take hold of God, like I do now. Instead, I took hold of my problems...and boy did they take me to places that made my life so miserable. Over time, I did come to see that walking side by side with despair...would only take me down other paths of despair, while continually taking control of my life, which only made my problems seem endless and ongoing.
I may not understand what you are going through right now...but I know a God, who is waiting to listen to you...and all you have to do; is be willing to let go of your problems and give it all over to Him. One thing I know 100%...is that when we do this; then a peace does surround us...a peace that truly does guard our hearts and minds, from all evil.
As we close another day together, may I encourage you to spend some quality time with God. Stop allowing your problems to lead you further into despair...and instead, take hold of the hand of God and let Him lead you by the still and quiet waters of life...and don't forget to thank Him...for when we give Him praise...this truly does become a message, from our hearts to His; that we believe in Him...and all He can do...to lead us through these overwhelming moments of despair.
Tonight, I pray that you will truly find God, to be the prince of all peace in your night! Take care...have a good rest...and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow!
God bless...and goodnight!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
