To all who have been baptized and have renewed the Holy Spirit in them, do not waste this gift! Read the Bible since it speaks to you and help others understand it in their hearts. Learn more about God, pray, and grow in Jesus Christ.
27 At once [Jesus] spoke to them, Take courage, it is I;* do not be afraid.
We all face situations in life that feel out of control. During times like these, it’s easy to get discouraged and allow fear to creep in; but instead, why don’t you focus on the fact that God is holding you in the palm of His hand! There is nothing too difficult for Him; nothing’s impossible; nothing is beyond His ability. When God holds you in His hand, you are safe; you are cared for. In His hand, there is victory. In His hand, there is strength. In His hand, there is provision. In His hand is everything you need.
No matter what you may be going through today, you can trust that God is for you. Instead of getting down and depressed over your circumstances, look up and get a vision of God turning that situation around. Let faith arise in your heart and focus on His favor, promotion and blessing. As you keep your heart and mind focused on Him and choose to obey His Word, you’ll see those supernatural breaks that will launch you further ahead than you ever thought possible because He holds you with His victorious right hand!
“Anti-abortion” aka pro-life!? Jeez.
And if this is the condition the rest of the clinics are in, then my gosh! The rest should be inspected as well. Who knows if there are who practices the same thing! We really need more support. Women are being attacked so much these days. Gotta stay hopeful and positive.
It’s been a while that I’ve blogged about something. Recent events has urged me to start writing again.
First - Stress
Sorting out my thoughts especially under stress is even more strenuous, making every problem seem bigger than they are; constantly complaining, anger exploding, impatience, making it difficult to handle challenges. Plain unhappy. And it seems to be a slippery slope from there.
Offering every thought to God, and reminding that God is above my problem, and above all personal plans, I realize a peace that I seem to have forgotten. I’ve come to trust in God again. I’ve come to claim His victory again. Stop worrying Blanca! I’ve come to listen again and ask Him what His plans are in every situation.
Let God be God.
Being in a space for thoughts (this is intriguing for me as a designer) - at Kariya Park, Mississauga: I finally found you! How beautiful. How peaceful. Need this adjacent to ultra functional spaces to learn to just “be” as opposed to always “doing”.
Sometimes, it’s good to be aware (“vigilant”) of our thoughts so we can be prudent about them. Shake off ones that are discouraging, doubtful, worrisome. They are not of God’s. After distinguishing this difference, and forcing myself to occupy my mind with things of God, i feel that my eyes looked happier, lighter and freer. Trusting in God allowed me to surrender fixing things by myself all the time, and letting Him be the master mind behind all decisions and feelings. CHOOSING Him to just use me instead.
In all things, be still, and trust in God.
