This “Elephant in the Room” is Hurting You!

Now that things seem to be getting back to some-sort-of normalcy, with the vaccine becoming more readily available to more people, and with the Stimulus Relief in the U.S. that we’re all expecting in some form or another…

…Let’s talk about the elephant that seems to Still be in the room:

Worry will wear you out! Worry is taking up your time, your energy, and it’s actually hurting you.

Take the time, instead, to reflect on the Unchangeable Constant, those things that bring Hope along with just being there! Like, the fact that the days are still rolling on, and you’ve survived this far! Face it…millions didn’t make it, but you were one of the ones who did!

…And don’t forget, if you have clean, running water, you are blessed! Water is always good for your body. So, if you are fortunate enough to have it, Use it, Enjoy it!

And then, there’s the smile of a loved-one. There’s the hope that a new day brings!

So,

Show Love to somebody today!

Next time you start to worry about Anything…just remember…Worry is Not your friend. Walk away from worry…

  • With a prayer
  • With a phone call
  • With a song
  • With a silly commercial jingle
  • With a positive conversation
  • With a cool glass of water
  • With hope in your heart!

For the Children’s Sake!

The fact is…

… Everybody who is alive today, in what ever situation or condition, has the power to make a difference for the hope of the world!

Peace on earth! & More goodwill...

Some things we need, and some things we don’t need!

For a secure and happy future,

making a difference matters.

Something is Different Here!

Worry, strive & anxiety have been a part of my life for so long that it seemed normal. I got used to it. I woke in the morning, worried about my bank account. “I need to check it to be sure it’s not overdrawn…again.”

During the day, I became angry when someone was rude, or interrupted me when I was speaking. “Ooo, that really irritates me when she does that!”

So much anxiety about what tomorrow will bring…or Not bring!

Then, one day, a friend noticed that irritated expression on my face,  & began to talk to me about it. She went from talking about me, to talking about God. That wasn’t something I expected to happen… But I found myself listening & answering her questions about why I was upset. She seemed genuinely concerned, and that was so different for me, And comforting to me!

Later, I found myself reading the Bible app that I allowed her to add to my phone during this little “talk.”

As I read through the scriptures, the words of Jesus spoke to me, and I found even more comfort as I read.

Soon, I became addicted to that app, looking at it whenever I had some “down-time,” in the doctors’ office, sitting in bed, or whenever I was alone.

Something had changed.

I don’t actually remember when, or where or how. But there is definitely something different going on inside my heart:

  • I’m more aware of my finances, so I don’t even need to check my bank account each-and-every day!
  • I put my trust in God, because, I know that if I can’t pay a bill, all I have to do is call on Jesus, then call the bill-collector. And things will work out, even if it doesn’t turn out the way I expect.
  • I’m calmer, somehow. Things don’t irritate me like thing used to irritate me. “What did she say? That’s crazy!” I’ll say to myself with a laugh.

What’s different?

Jesus has actually made me “light.” He’s made me laugh. In His presence is joy evermore! That secret place is where I want to be every day and every night! ~ Wrapped in His Love!

Wait & Be Courageous. (As Commanded)

Early church tradition affirms that apostle Peter was the author of this letter, First Peter.

Indeed, the purpose of this letter was not to provide a record of the life of Christ, but instead, Peter was encouraging Christians with the comforting spiritual realities behind the persecution they faced.

Peter wanted to emphasize — JESUS, THE OVERSEER & CHIEF SHEPHERD — of all Christians, and when He appears, those who have a relationship with Him will, also, be glorified.

7 casting all your care [anxiety] upon him, because he [“Chief Shepherd”]

cares for you. https://youtu.be/qkOFKPJQ6a8

13  Peace to you all, who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

I encourage you —

…to memorize ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬-7.

“In nothing be anxious;

but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

That word…Entreat, appeal, beg, petition, beseech, plead, invocation, request, solicit, urge, pray!!

And the peace of God, [there’s nothing like it; you can’t buy it!]

which passeth all understanding,

• shall guard ..shall keep…

• … your hearts (Yes, your heart hurts, but only for a while),

•  and your mind & your thoughts, (You’re preoccupied with the heartache, but only for awhile),

enjoying life…smiling and sharing more love…in Christ Jesus.”
