Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things  as ye have:  for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Happy Spring and camels.

 

Happy Spring!

Although the official day of Spring was in March, now it is beginning to feel a lot  like Spring. 🙂

This is the day that the Lord has made and I am rejoicing and glad in it!

I hope you are too.

This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Here is a fun fact for today.

Despite its hump, a camel has a straight spine. 🙂

LAZY MAN’S LOAD 2

Image result for a broken mug,pinterest

And everything was going great until………………………. The bag on top of the box I was carrying started to fall and I did not move fast enough.

So the brand new mug that my friend had just bought hit the cement floor and you guessed it, BROKE.

If only I would have listened to that tiny little thought I had earlier.

Although my friend was very nice about it and I offered to buy a new one I still felt awful.

Then she told me “You know what my Mother would have said, you were hauling a Lazy man’s load”.

That is a great thing to remember for our everyday lives.

Sometimes I ask God what He wants me to do, He will show me something, then with all my excitement I start piling things up then I hear a still small voice “That’s enough for right now” and do I listen?……. sometimes I do but when I don’t  then comes the big crash and I feel like a failure.

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Jeremiah 29:11

I encourage you as I remind myself, don’t carry a lazy man’s load.

Two or three successful loads is better than one disastrous load.

So we need to listen to God’s still small voice and try to avoid a lazy man’s mess. 🙂

 

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.     2 Chronicles 7:14

LAZY MAN’S LOAD.

 

 

The other day I was helping a friend carry some stuff. I already had a good load  in my arms and as I reached for just ONE more thing, this tiny little thought entered my head, “Don’t ! You have enough. You might break something. Just come back for a second load.” But did I Listen? NO.

And everything was going great until ………… To be continued. 🙂

Your Ability

    Success Measured

This quote is so true.  Don’t compare yourself to others.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psalm 139:14

My words of advice for today, Don’t compare yourself with others, rejoice with them in their abilities and talents but know that God did not make us the same.

If we all had the same talents and abilities the world would be boring and unbalanced.

So love who God made YOU to be.

Some times we are so rushed to get things done,  and we should make good use of our time but not so fast that we miss out on the beauty and the people around us. So today I encourage you to stop for a minute, take a deep breath, look around.  Is there anything you are missing out on?

 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

I really really really like listening to music but the other day when I was working  I realized that it was quiet, and my first thought was to turn on some music  but then I head God’s still, small voice saying, Be still and know that I am God.

And I Just stood still for a moment and thought, He is God. It flushed out all the worries that would normally fill my thoughts. To know that He is God and He loves me, He cares about me, He wants me to cast my cares on Him, He gives me peace in the midst of turmoil. He sent His only son to die for me and He does and is so much more.  

Can I ever comprehend what it is to know that ……..

HE IS GOD!

Psalm 46:10
