CHOICES TO STAND STILL

Hand wash or dishwasher?

 standing over a sink filled with dishes requires us to stand still,I can remember mama having us wash dishes in a certain order & if you didn't do it in that order you re washed um lol

glasses 1st then silverware then plates then pots & pans, we live in such a busy fast paced world that there seems to be no time to stand still,

God tells is in his word stand still and know ...that I am God (Ps.46:10) when we are are still we hear the voice of God like when he told Job hearken unto this O Job stand still and consider the wondrous works of God (Job 37:14)

I am thankful my dishwasher is by my side & ready when all those jars need sterilizing or when I need it to be a drying rack but give me bubbles from dishwashing liquid that brings back memories of my grandmother, a moment to sing along with the radio, a moment to ponder, a moment to stand sill

SHIFTING

Exodus 10:9 The LORD responded by shifting the wind, and the strong west wind blew the locusts into the Red Sea. Not a single locust remained in all the land of Egypt.

there has been a shifting in the atmosphere, can you feel it? I can ! within the walls of my home, the lives of my grand children, my church family, doors that are yet to be opened, God is defiantly up to something for there is a shifting in the wind, as I look around it all seems the same yet there is a stirring as rain you can see from afar off, don't let go of your dreams, don't let the enemy rob you of your blessing, stand strong for there is a shifting in the atmosphere, embrace the rain that is coming!

HOW DO YOU DEFINE JOY?

 

JOY

a feeling of great happiness
the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying

if you look closely you'll discover you don't have to go far to find things that bring you joy, the sound of birds singing, a cool breeze on a hot day,for me it can be as simple as watching my grandbabies, fish, being in my sewing room, making cookies with the girls,the list is way too long to list

you can take joy in a hard days work

And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labor: and this was my portion of all my labor.( Ecclesiastes 2:10 )

there is joy in the Lord

Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. (Habbakuk 3:19 )

JOY! such a little word, but so much impact!

PEACE IN OUR SURROUNDINGS

As I watched the geese come across the yard this morning I noticed how they seemed at peace with no worries as though they knew they were safe here I begin to recall how the word speaks of peace & how the Lord gives us peace in our surroundings

Psalms 4:8 tells us I will both lay me down in peace and sleep for thou Lord only, makest me dwell in safety

it is a good feeling to know we can have peace when we lay our head down at night, whatever storm we face he gives us strength to face it & through that strength he sends peace like a mighty rushing wind

Psalms 29:11 The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.

HAVE A GOOD CONSCIENCE

 

1 Peter 3:16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

quotes20

I love this scripture as it reminds me as long as we are doing what we know to do right there’s no need to worry about those who falsely accuse for it will out weigh all the negatives

this weekend many dads grand dads & great grand dads will be showered with love , gifts & family, I pray for my friends & family members whom recently lost their dads & that this special day the memories will out weigh the pain, I am thankful to still have two amazing men in my life, the love of my life of 40 yrs, paw paw to 8, God has showered us with mercy throughout the years & we are truly blessed, the years are taking their toil on my sweet little daddy, today he struggled to read his cards yet his conversation was sharp, yes our family has troubles, heartaches & pain like any other family but it is because of that Amazing Grace we can see light at the end of the tunnel
