"When I kept things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me."
Ask yourself two questions. Is there any un-confessed sin in my life?...
Whether it's too small to be mentioned or too big to be forgiven isn't yours to decide. Your task is to be honest...
Are there any unsurrendered worries in my heart? "Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you"(1Peter5:7) The German word for worry means "to strangle" The Greek word means "to divide the mind".... Worry is a noose on the neck and a distraction of the mind, neither of which is beffitting for joy.
There are so many times I wish I could be like the birds in the air...they don't worry about shelter, food or anything. I know I am not the only one who worries about different things...but, sometimes life is just hard. Life changes ...new phases....are not so easy to take sometimes. Parents getting older....daughter growing up and moving to college...job changes for honey...need of job...all these things going on cause me to worry. I am trying to cast my cares to my Savior ....I can tell him all about it...it is the giving it all to HIM that is the hard part. I know that I am so blessed and have so much to be thankful....I don't want the worries of life to strangle my joy. I am going to work on this today....till this too shall pass. I am the daughter of the KING....HE loves me just as I am....for this I am so thankful.
So how about you? If you are worrying about something ...remember to turn it over to the one who told the ocean it could only come so far....who told the stars to shine in the evening...
Also, remember when ....God shuts a door ....HE opens a window!
Are you ready for the window to be opened?
