Something I Read Lately

I’ve prayed this prayer many times on many different occasions. Never once has God answered my prayer by changing my circumstances, i.e. making my life easier, taking away my difficulties, instantly transporting me to the other side of my trials. What He has done is reminded me ever so subtly that He will be with me as He always has during my dark road.

Peace isn’t always  a feeling of contentment. Sometimes, the butterflies remain but so does the promise that God won’t forsake me. For me, a feeling of peace doesn’t always mean peace, nor does a lack of it indicate its absence. Try and work that one out and see if it makes sense.

After all, it is a peace that is beyond my utmost understanding. I don’t need a god who I can figure out and manage and understand. I need a God who is bigger than…

No need to worry!

First of all, I have good news!  We have had 94 people see our blog since it opened 2 weeks ago!  Can I hear a Hooray?  Yeah!

Now for the topic of the day 🙂 I borrowed some of this blog post with permission from Anna Marie Davis a member of our congregation.  She is spoke today at our Clairemont congregation and her topic is based on Matthew 6:25-34.  It basically tells us that we do not need to worry about our situation, that God will provide for us.  I can tell you that is true as I have had financial worries lately and somehow it always seems to work out ok in the end.  Maybe I have had to give up a few things, but things are not as important as our relationship with God.

Anna Marie recently met a person who served some time in prison and has changed his life and has decided to follow God.  Anna Marie asked him if he was worried about his future since being in prison will affect whether he gets a job and many other parts of his life.  He said “no, because I know God will provide my needs”.  Anna Marie was impressed with this person because here is someone who has legitimate worries and yet he hands over his life to God.  I think we can learn a lot from this person.

Curt Sharon gave the sermon in El Cajon and he said something that caught my attention on this same topic.  He said “If we focus on God instead of our worries, our worries (or anxieties) will sometimes be taken care of when we serve God.”  It may not be the outcome we expected, but we will be better for it over time.

Is there anyone out there who would like to share how giving their worries or anxieties over to God has turned out for the better?

Have a good week!
