I have a quote that I have been practicing and thinking about lately;
It goes like this;
"No matter what your circumstances are, don't get your feathers ruffled"
The skies are very ominous this evening;
This time of the year the spring storms can leave you feeling unsettled.
Do you ever think about what is happening in the natural world
Is as an indication as to what is happening in the spiritual realm?
I have heard of so many women feeling anxious lately;
I have been thinking that even for myself, I have felt a bit unsettled.
When you find yourself in a season or a moment of trials or fear;
We must learn to not let a vain imagination take hold!
I am very grateful for the fact that I have been practicing this,
To not allow this vain imagination to take hold for years!
~The word tells us to look up
For your redemption draws nigh~
~Look to the hills for this is where your help comes from~
Where I look affects the way I feel and respond...
When I allow the enemy to get my eyes on my circumstances;
I immediately feel anxious;
So, here is what I do, I look UP...
I sometimes think people may think that I have no reaction at times;
But it is really that I am choosing to not allow myself to respond!
Being trained or exercising with the right response in a crisis or trouble,
Is not what the word is teaching us!
I think they want us to fear and feel like things are out of control!
When Jesus was told of a trouble or sickness, did it ever tell us
He was worried and that he ran to get there faster!
He was calm, and He had a peace that prevailed.
This very peace is what we have been given to guard our hearts and minds!
I have been thinking about that verse that tells us to be anxious for nothing.
I do not want to live in unrest or fear;
And I am sure you do not want to either, so we can determine in our hearts;
To not allow worry or fear to take hold...
I am not suggesting that we are not to be unconcerned about issues or life;
But rather to do all things in a peaceable way and attitude.
There are just some people who just panic over everything;
Who you looking at?
Keep in peace, trust and obey for there is no other way...
