Peace in Uncertainty

Peace only comes from God. You can have temporary calm from other sources, but lasting peace only comes from God. Why? Because He is powerful and huge enough that nothing can threaten or stir Him. His peace is a natural makeup if His because He knows who He is. His confidence exudes what we know to be from His natural enormity and wisdom and power and love and all that makes Him who He is. Also, He knows everything. There is no uncertainty with God. And even though He gives us free will, He still knows what we will choose. He knows everything past, now and future. We have uncertainty because we do not have the ability to know the future. That is God’s alone. Demons and Satan cannot do that. We cannot. Only God knows. So even though we have much much uncertainty, we can be certain about one thing. God knows. God is certain. So to have peace, we just have to be certain that God is certain (called faith), make Him your Heavenly Father because He wants to save you and loves you, and cozy up to Him. We can have peace because we are on the side of the God of peace. Our uncertainty is just ours so we rely on God who is not uncertain about any topic. Our peace is faith in Him. ❤❤❤

Philippians 4:7-9

Philippians 4:7. “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”❤

A 5-K, Consulting, Ditch Digging, a pool1 & Chicken in One Day

I had a bizarre and pretty exhausting day today. I am certain you are quite interested in it lol. Thank God, I started it off with a fast 5-K walk (my knees told me I cannot jog anymore) and a long prayer with my God, how I love Him! Then came two audiologic consults, reminding me that I am a doctor and can still help people. Then lunch and home for ditch digging and dressing (with concrete and river rocks) continued. Cleaned up from that and headed to the pool with the kids then grabbed chicken for supper on the way home. Had to hit two gas stations for filling up the tank as the first station was out if gas. They are price gouging because of the hurricane (as bad as lawyers, benefitting from people’s terror) and should be penalized for it, but I digress. Then showers and now about to hit the sack. I am wiped out. However, I am still alive and healthy and at peace. You see, when I start the day with the Lord I love so very much who loves me, the whole day is set in the right tempo and peace and joy mix to allow all the things flying at me to not stick. It is like a good prayer life with God is a good grease that the crud flying at us cannot dig into or stick to. The peace and joy and hope remain in tact all day. That is the secret, friends. Even in ugliness and abuses and selfishness surrounding and threats of catastrophes, God holds me closer than I can hold Him and sustains, provides for, loves and nd protects me. It is beautiful. On the busiest days, calm prevails. Beautiful!! Thank you, God! ❤❤❤

In Letting Go

In clinging to God, I let go of so much. I let go of pain, even if I feel it a while. I let go of confusion and distraction, though the world wreaks of it. I let go of worry and expectations of badness for I am clinging to goodness. I let go if lies and dishonesty for I cling to truth. I let go od unforgiveness and hate for I cling to generous love. When I cling to God, I let go of so very much. But in letting go of these other things and cling g to God, I am truly free. Free. Free forever. God is freedom. How I love Him! ❤❤❤

When the Sun Shines Again

Acceptance is the sunshine in the sky

Until it comes, darkness a lights

And with its dawn, the sun shines anew

And everything rosy, no more blue.

Acceptance bring the warmth of peace

The gift of control to the Master’s feet

It accepts things as the way they are

And returns the hope that strayed afar

And worships God who is in control

And causes all things to ebb and to flow

And here I now am with sun on my face

And my humble heart stands in its place. ❤ 

Seeing an Old Friend

I think sometimes God puts someone fresh in your mind because something is left undone with them or to let you know they will be headed your way soon. Well, this happened recently in a dream and some random thoughts through the day and today we randomly met up at a park. Well, because of the Holy Spirit preparing me, I was ready and knew what to say and what he needed to hear. It is beautiful how God works out unresolved or unfinished business in the right timing when we are ready for it and the other person is ready for it. And God continues to amaze me every day. I love Him so much to take care of the little nagging details of our lives to promote growth and peace and show love. He is so very good! ❤❤❤

The Weather Inside

I try to keep my inner climate steady and calm and God helps with that. It is like being indoors in a controlled, steady environment regardless of what storms rage outside or troops waging war or occasionally evenall is serene and the same state and temperature so I can temporarily open the windows and let in some fresh air. And that is what being a Christian is like inside. Now, if we do not properly maintain the air handler, we get an influx of the weather outside, so we must maintain our relationship with Jesus to keep everything functioning as it should be. And when we have that focus and all works right, it does not matter one iota what the heck is going on outside our skin or even to it. Our peace runs deeper. Our joy flows higher. Our understanding is sweeter. Praise God!❤❤❤
