How was your day, Loves?
What opportunities came your way … What challenges confronted your peace of mind? That’s about what life is, right, in a nut shell.
Opportunities … Challenges … and Choices.
I was challenged today … by the chance to walk in frustration and fear. Then I remembered I had a choice!
That’s right … A CHOICE!
It may be the first time that I REALIZED that I had a choice in the face of a wall of challenge! And I took the opportunity!
The opportunity, you ask? YES … the opportunity!
I took the opportunity to REST in the LORD during a time of great stress! And… I actually rested! 🙂
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
HOW’S THAT FOR NOT FEARING! HOW’S THAT FOR PLEASING THE FATHER!
Life is what it is … a gift that sometimes feels as if it’s wrappings are wrinkled and torn. But no matter how life behaves today or tomorrow, we have a choice.
The choice to meet the challenge with an attitude of faith, trusting that our Maker, our Father, is doing in the day all that needs doing to make sure we press that much deeper into Him, and more.
What’s the more, you may ask?
Well this morning, and when I think about it yesterday morning too, I awoke with this song soothing my mind as it danced in my head …
How great is God???
REMEMBER … DO NOT FEAR … FOCUS: GOD!
