You can Change

Have you ever consented to something and found out that it was not what you wanted to spend time doing?  What did you do with it?  I consented to receiving an email blog from someone I once knew when in high school.  I am finding that it comes too much and the views are not my views. 

There comes a time when you have to be clear of the why you do a thing.  In this case - it was to support.  But my support is not giving me a contented feeling.  So I shall stop receiving the email.

That was fairly simple- but how many times do we continue along a path that we are not comfortable- all because we are trying to support?  It is not a path that Holy Spirit has guided you on but a path of people pleasing?  You do not have to continue.  Get clarity from Holy Spirit and then follow that path.  Let the other junk go.  Take a new deep breath. enough for now.

God Still Is

My goodness.  There is so much going on with so many believers.  So many decisions to be made, so many 'what ifs'.  I have heard so many sad stories that make no sense, all in a short time. People are hurting- in physical and emotional pain.  Now that is not normal; so I'm thinking that the enemy has stepped up the attack, as so many believers in this season of Lent are partaking in spiritual disciplines of abstinence or engagement.  The thing about it- is that we are doing it together and that causes concern for the enemy.  Hang in there. Do not be confused or distracted.  Stay focused and in prayer as God Still Is- God is still in charge, still merciful, still protecting; still all knowing, still all seeing, still everywhere at the same time, still loving you.  God is still all of that and more!

That is enough right there.  God is still so much more than anything the enemy can do.  And you are still in God's care.  If you feel weak, then be carried.  If you feel sad, then be encouraged.  If you feel confused, then listen.  Oh I bless you with from Holy Spirit.  I silence the voice of the enemy.  I silence your voice.  If you need to grieve- do so, and then let God have it.  Hold on, stay focused, and watch what God is doing.  Blessings of peace! enough for now.

It has Begun

Yesterday marked the first day of Lent.  I encourage you to join me by walking this time in closer contemplation of the journey that Jesus took - for us.  Yes, I encourage either a spiritual discipline of abstinence or engagement if it takes you closer to a place of preparation, prayer, and discipline. Blessings as you become more aware of who you are. enough for now.
