Don’t be afraid to take time and smell the roses. 🙂

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!
I sought the Lord, and he heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
As I sit here and write this post, I am trying to think of something to write along with this verse, but it is written so simply, It needs no commentary.
It is so simple and incredible that I think it is hard for us to believe.
So please just read it for exactly what it says and know that God is true to His word.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
Perfect Peace and Everlasting Strength, I did nothing to deserve such promises but that is how much my Jesus loves me.

“Most people think that God asks ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and He does at times. But most of the time He asks extraordinary people to do very ordinary things.”
David and Jason Benham
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
“Duty is ours, results are God’s”
(John Quincy Adams)
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
