Look Around

Sunday, it began with a prayer.

God awaken my soul.

Worship service began and I felt no ease.  My heart wrapped in worry.  My head ached for sense.  Restlessness overcame my very being.  Unsettled.  Stagnate. Fearful.

Holy Spirit arouse each cell of my being.

The sermon began with a young maiden long ago.  Encountered a heavenly host to learn of her fate.  Refusal wasn’t her answer.  She welcomed the hardship, the loneliness, her fate as a believer……

Make me like Mary.

Go For A Walk.

I heard it.  I felt it.  God’s beckoning.  The dreariness of my mind’s state held me back.

What were Mary’s words?  “I am the Lord’s servant….. May it e to me as you have said.”  Luke 1:38  Oh yes, now I remember.  Yes, Lord, a walk I will take.

Sunday afternoon, as soon as I could, I went on my walk.  I grabbed my pocket size Bible, slipped it into my pocket and headed out across the yard.

Oh, God, help me…. I began to pray.

Hush my child, look around.

Stubborn, I continued on in prayer with each step.

Finances, Work, Pressure, Worry, Past Hurts

Look Around.

I need you, God, to hear me.

Look Around.

It wasn’t long before I was quiet.  My soul jerked awake and my cells burned with desire not despair.

I looked around.  I saw God’s beauty.

Green holly with red berries reminded me of the season.

A playful, full of life, kitten climbing the tree.  His stance screams “Look at me!” A smile formed.  Worries lessened.

The elderly horse gently acknowledging me with a neighborly neigh. My heart strings played God’s melody.  Pain, Pressure, and my future worries slipped away.

God’s words echoed……

 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

   28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:25-34

A gentle reminder.  A quiet nudge.  Reassurance all will be right again.  Worry no more and walk…….

God bless……

Okay folks….. yesterday, I asked, “What is it??”
