Having been sick this past week, it’s been easy to “be still”, but thinking clearly has escaped me. These are the times when I’m so grateful that God shares His thoughts with us so specifically in the Word. Let’s talk about this on Sunday Be Stills and God’s thoughts.
SUNDAY BE STILLS and GOD’S THOUGHTS
If you’ve been reading the recent newsletters from My Wee Abode, you know that I’m preparing to leave for Florida to celebrate my Grandma’s life and her Home-going last Friday. I’m looking forward to being with my extended family in Florida, but preparing for a quick trip across the country has its challenges.
Along with preparing for the trip, a hefty cold has hit me for the second time in 3 months. I’ve never had that happen before… no fun.
During this time, my head has not been the clearest (hopefully this post is making sense … hehe). In these times, I’m thankful that the Lord is clear in the Scriptures about what His thoughts are for us.
This is one of my all-time favorite verses… This version (New King James), says the Lord has thoughts of peace for us, not evil. What does that mean to you?
For me, it means He doesn’t necessarily have thoughts for me to succeed (at least not in the worldly way we sometimes think, i.e. riches, a new home, a new car, etc.) But, He does have the BEST thought He could ever have for His people…
And this peace will lead to the future that He has for us, and the hope we have in Him.
Pretty amazing, right?
I don’t know about you, but I would MUCH rather have peace and know He has a future and a hope for me than anything else this world has to offer. Anxiety and depression with money and success? No, thank you.
