“Today as I sat on the deck His voice was rustling in the trees. It was cloudy day but all at once golden rays of sunshine lit up the woods. He then spoke to me, telling me to trust in him. He filled me up with peace almost taking my breath away at times yet at the same time I was also breathing him deep into my soul. It was awesome.”
Today I woke up in a horrible mood. My heart was racing and my mind was anxious and whirling. I had been up most of the night with terrible knee pain and panic about my eye problems. And then to top off the morning I had gotten angry with my husband and snipped at him before I leaving for work.
The minute I got in the car to go to work my pity party started, I was crying and telling God I was tired. I was tired of the pain in my knees, tired of not sleeping, tired of the eye stuff, you name it I was tired of it.
As I topped the hill right before the church where I work I said, “Please Lord I just need a break, can you just give me a little peace?
And then I saw this beautiful sunrise….
I had to pull over to take that picture because it was so breathtaking. I then pulled into the parking lot and took a few more.
I actually took 16 more pictures before I saw it. Do you see it?
Answered prayer was right in front of my face.
Not just the beautiful sunrise but he also gave me the peace I had asked for.
P – E – A – C – E he had spelled it out for me!
Today our church sign was frozen on the word peace (bottom left corner), some would say it was broken? i would say it was working perfectly 🙂
What an awesome gift and a blessing God gave me today. Sometimes I am still amazed that he loves me so much
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Quietness fills my ears as I watch the snow floating softly down like feathers,
covering everything in a blanket of white.
Trees once brown and decaying,
now covered by a fluffy snow floating down,
whiting out the dull brown
Once bare tree branches bend beneath the weight
looking as if they are about to break.
Bowing beneath the lovely white
instead of broken a beautiful sight.
As I watch each little intricate detail make this picture before me today
I know it is time to pray
Dear Lord, thank you for the never ending beauty you always put before my eyes. And today thank you for the snow, softly floating down, sprinkled from your hands, dusting everything in sight with your beauty. Amen
I am not sure why I feel the need to have more than one blog. There are a lot WordPress design options so maybe that is the reason. I like the pretty purple swirls on one of my blogs and then there is the cute little worm who travels up the side of another blog I have.
I have never been the type of person who likes things to stay the same and some days I just want to be different. There are differences in my blogs also. I usually I try to keep things on this blog upbeat and it is also my main blog. Some days I feel like I need to vent so I am venting on thinking loudly. On days I feel extra thankful those are the days I writelove letters to Jesus.
No matter what the reason I have more than one blog I eventually end up sharing what I post on the other blogs here. and if you clicked any of the links to the others you will see I really don’t use them much at all. Now that I think about it maybe it is time to delete the other blogs, save myself the extra work and just post it all here on my main blog in the first place…. 🙂
Below is my post I posted on Thinking Loudly yesterday and what a difference a day can make! Today I woke up feeling painful knees but the difference between yesterday and today is the attitude I chose to take today. Today I feel much better than yesterday mostly because I am done with the pity party and maybe because I allowed people to help me instead of keeping it all bottled up inside, only sharing my true feelings with the blog world.
Each day I continue to heal but on the bad days I still know that God is good. Everyone keeps telling me tomorrow will be a better day but I am not sure that is always true. Tomorrow could actually be a worse day but the attitude I decide to choose to take will make all the difference in the outcome of the day.
No matter what you are going through today remember Jesus is walking along with you, If you can not walk then lay it out there for him go ahead tell him how you feel. He is always listening and he truly cares about you and if needed he will carry you.
No matter what kind of day it is today Jesus will always be the same. If you choose to take him along with you today I am pretty sure you will see your day become much brighter.
Here is my post from Thinking Loudly…
SOME DAYS ARE JUST TO DARN HARD…
Most days when I wake up in the morning I am thankful. But today when I woke up that thankfulness fleeted through my head for only about half a second because as I opened my eyes I realized I had awoken to searing pain in my knees.
Though I know I am supposed to sleep flat on my back with my knees propped on pillows my ‘sleeping’ self insists on knocking the pillows off the bed and curling into a ball on my side. The result of that is knees that feel like a pair of rusty hinges that are frozen in the bent position and they need to be unlocked. The unlocking hurts more than I can ever begin to explain, so I won’t.
Thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving me so much that you saved me from falling. Thank you for giving me the strength to make it through another day. Thank you for hearing me when I cried out to you in need of help. Thank you for being there for me when I wanted to give up. Thank you for staying with me when I felt all alone. Thank you for catching my tears and taking my pain when I cried out to you… Jesus please take this. I know without you I would never have come this far. I know without you I would give in. Thank you for being there putting out your hand for me to grab on to. Thank you for pulling me up out of the mouth of the pit of self destruction. Thank you for giving me the strength to…
