"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Doing a Little Better

Doing a little better today.  Still feeling a little distant but you know, maybe that is just His way of testing me, making sure that I am not going to pull away just because I can't feel Him as close right now.  I also started thinking that maybe He's a little busy with everyone else right now...

Things are pretty good here, I have a daughter that might drive me crazy and never gives me a minute to myself but that just means she is healthy, happy, energetic and loves me!

I have dirty laundry, dirty dishes and house but that just means that we have a house to live in with plenty of food and clothes.

I can't always think of things to write about but maybe that just means that I am supposed to not stress over it, it's supposed to be fun not work!  Plus it gives me more time with Mad and more time to read other blogs.

Wanting that time alone with Him is important but it means that I have family that also needs me, which is a good thing.

Just some things I had to write down to remind myself that things are good and He was provided for us so I should stop worrying about everything and just relax!  God is still in control and right now maybe I am just supposed to be trying to figure out how to relax and stop controlling things myself.  That is always the hardest thing for me... letting Him show me what I am supposed to be doing.

Here's another post I did on Thanking the Lord for what we have.... its from my other blog My Mad World Pin It

This reminds me of the Bible study I'm doing `Experiencing God`. `God is still in control and right now maybe I am just supposed to be trying to figure out how to relax and stop controlling things myself.` I am such a fix-it person, and things would turn out so much better if I would wait and let God do what He is doing.

I am right there with you Michelle!! Why is it so hard for some of us to do that? I know that things would be so much better if I would let God be my pilot and not my co-pilot!

Sometimes when we are having tough experiences in our lives and I think I have to have control I have found after whatever is going on has passed and I look back and can see that God did have his hand in helping me.. I just needed to slow down and let him do his work. God Writes Perfect Endings. He Can't Help It.
Psalm 98: 1,4 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song~! For He has done marvelous things: His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory...Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth; Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises...
That's the key..turn on your Christian music and sing your heart out... you do have a beautiful voice,,, even thou I haven't ever heard it...When singing I don't think God cares what we sound like.. It's beautiful to him... He is probably saying "Oh Listen,, they are singing my song"..
I think when we sing a whole new level of praise erupts in our souls. It's as if a lid pops off of an undiscovered canyon somewhere deep inside, and a dam of living water breaks, rinses, and fills it.. A testimony of God's goodness springs from the well to the the lips.. Music comes alive and suddenly puts words to what you feel.. You have a song on your heart that can't help but fine it's way--in various words and melodies--to your mouth..
Read Luke 19:37,39-40..
Rejoice in the Lord..~! Have a great day~!
