Monday Greetings to All You
Hope your day is going well so far, after all, it is Monday,
and usually slow going getting back into the weekly rountine.
It is about 65 degrees here today, and been sort of a dismal,
gloomy looking day, think it can probably match what is going
on in the hearts of God's people to do with this Government
Healthcare bill's passage.
Funny that I went to bed last night bursting with Joy over
having such a wonderful day with my hubby and children
yesterday, and rejoicing that this is the 3rd time Megan
has come to church with Scott, and the more I get to
know her the more thrilled I am about their relationship.
She is a darling girl, really..............
But somewhere around 4o'clock I would say I woke up
and started having all sorts of fearful thoughts bombarding
me, about my children, our country falling apart, and
can't even remember what else, but could not get back
to sleep. Amazing how the enemy of our soul loves to
come to us, when we are barely awake and when the
house is dark and quiet, he tries to devour us before
daybreak, so that we will get out of bed fearful, anxious
and totally lose sight of the power of the
Lord of our love and lives.
Hubby arose at 6:00 a.m. and I told him I just realized that
enemy is really attacking my mind with all these negative
scary thoughts, when he came to say goodbye as he
was leaving for work, I was sound asleep, and he said
are you feeling better, and I said yes, it has stopped.and I
knew he had been praying that was why I could sleep.
Later when I got up and checked email and my blog
I read that the healthcare bill had passed, and again
l felt like a heavy cloud over my head about what
is happening to our beloved country, then I decided
to read our online devotional and yesterdays was
about the book of Job, anyway, to make a long story
short, what I read made me want to go back and read
some of the Job story. This heaviness of spirit I was feeling,
drove me to the Lord to spend time with him, so I got out
my bible and started reading in Job 31, where Job was talking
to his friends, and then I read on till the end of the story.
Well, all I can tell you is when it gets to the part where
God is talking to Job, it is a powerful testimony of who
God really is, I came out of my bedroom a different
woman than I went in, which is suppose to be what
happens when we spend time with the Lord.
I came out reassured of the fact that Our God is truly
in control of everything, and He has the power to do
whatever He desires, and He is in control of the smallest,
tiniest details of our world and our lives, and that
He will take care of me and my family and those that love
and follow Him, no matter what happens.
My job is to keep a close walk with Him, and to be as
obedient as I possibly can to what His word and His
Holy Spirit tells me.
And I might add to keep the enemy at bay for he tells
us to resist the enemy and he will flee.
I hope if your heart is heavy today and the world
seems to be pressing in with anxiety and fear,
Spend some time reading Job Chapter 38-42.
Trust me it will not be wasted time.
Don't let the enemy of your soul still your JOY!!
Do something, don't just sit and just let him
Remember John 10:10 says the thief (satan)
comes only to kill, steal and destroy:
but I (Jesus) have come that they might have life,
and have it to the full. (that means being full of the
fruit of the spirit..... love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
Reading, Praying and Praising are a good way to
submit yourself to God, resist the enemy and
make him flee as James 4:7 instructs.
Just felt the Lord would have me share this
just in case someone else had the kind of day
Have a Wonderful Evening with your Family
See ya tomorrow!
Blessings n' hugs,
