Have you ever been waterskiing?
When I was growing up this was our weekend activity of choice. We went often and we went with some close friends. Our summer vacation was usually a camping trip near water so we could ski all day every day. I absolutely loved it.
If you’ve ever skied you know how challenging it can be to learn to stand up on the water as the boat drags you along. Learning can mean a lot of water in your face and up your nose. There is
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’” Mark 12:30
Worry is such an incredible waste of time, energy and anything of value that it will cost you. Because you will always have to make an exchange when you choose worry over faith. Worry will cause you to take detours on your journey not meant for you. Worry will derail purpose and potential in exchange for a one way ticket to nowhere. When
Have you ever browsed a brochure that takes your through verbal illustrations complete with dramatic and exotic photos that fill your mind with expectations for the vacation that will fill the void and block out life’s noise?
Have you ever heard Disney’s slogan, “The Happiest Place on Earth”.
Americans are fascinated with pleasure. The idea of rest and ease seems to be what we think we need to manage and cope the stress of life. We plan and save and take distant vacations only to discover the price tag didn’t meet the
This is the air I breathe…
These are the words that sing to my internal mind and sweep through my soul as I open my eyelids this morning.
This is the air I breathe..
The breath of Heaven is a glorious thing. If I could somehow communicate how intoxicating it is to breathe Him in deeply.
People all over looking for something. But what? Most probably don’t even know what it is they are searching for. I suppose they feel they will know when they find it?
It’s a bit like falling in love. Well,
God always equips us for how He calls us–
In the process of the equipping we endure a season constructed by heaven to retreat into the Savior’s Arms. Often times it requires a Night or a dark season of soul to relinquish our will for His.
Think back in your life to a time when it felt dark as night. You had a trouble or problem that was so much bigger than you and you didn’t know what to do. Maybe there wasn’t much you could do—just endure and perhaps you even
Have you ever tried to slice something with a dull knife?
Like many people, I have one of those wood blocks that holds all my sharp knives and some kitchen sheers that I use only on food. Yesterday I was preparing myself some raw chicken to be grilled on my skillet and as I was using the sheers to cut the meat I noticed how easy it was. I had recently sharpened the scissors— and knives as well. Boy, what a difference it made. My work was easier and required
Chores, errands, running around.
Company party, office party, neighbors party, church party, family gatherings and an endless list of this and that. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and maybe the most exhausting or depressing time of the year for many.
How ever important it is to keep the main thing the main thing.
Has this list described you?
Has the fanfare, the party air, the festive lights and tantalizing treats distracted you or overwhelmed you in any way? Or maybe you’ve not been invited to a party, not a single one,
True rest has to do with trust.
When we trust God for the day to day—moment by moment, we find our mind, our heart, our will in unison with His.
No matter the situation or circumstance we trust God to bless and protect and lift us up at His Appointed time.
You can rest in it.
You can trust it! ~Nicole🌹
“In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.”
Do not worry about your life. God cares and keeps watch over everything. Nothing surprises him. Nothing too hard or intimidating for him. The world may seem in disarray, but he is still well and able to save your every day!
Be. At. Peace!
He’s got you! ~Nicole
