TROUBLES, TRUE, TRUST

***I wrote this five years ago.  Interestingly it is the basis scripture of my book series now, and His word is always timely. Our Abba Father is like that…***

 

 

Everyone has them…no one is exempt.

Jesus told us that we would have them.  Whether it is a health issue, financial troubles, family problems, school issues…trouble surrounds us in one form or another. I don’t believe that any one problem is anymore worth of His attention than another.  They ALL warrant His love and attention.  What might seem trivial and unimportant to me, might not to someone else….and I truly believe that because He loves us, He cares about our troubles.

The difference comes in how we handle these troubles.  THAT is it!  It is not about how WE handle them…but do we surrender them and turn them over to the Father?  Do we rest in HIM, even though the trouble seems to remain?

Interestingly enough, as I was looking in the back of my Bible in the Concordance…these were the alphabetical listings surrounding the topic “trouble”.

Trials, Tribulation, Triumphal, Triumphant, Trouble, True, Trust…hmmmm.  How cool is that?  We will have those trials, tribulations and troubles.  But it is true that we can be triumphant, as He is true and we can trust Him!  Isn’t it wonderful how all those words together can bring us peace..IN HIM!

Trust me when I say that emotions are real…and we will deal with them.  I believe the Father gave us these emotions to deal with our troubles…but HE wants to carry them for us.  We just have to let go and let HIM.

Oh how I need to be reminded of this today!

Grey Skies and Sunshine

I will be the first to admit that I am not terribly fond of grey days.  It seems there have been more of them this winter than usual.  At least it seems that way.

I had to run errands today and was on a parking lot lamenting yet another grey sky.

I looked up and all around was grey, grey and more grey.  I rolled the cart to the bay and turned back around saunter back to my grey-blue car.

“Look Up.”  Two simple words in my spirit that had my eyes turning up over a building.

It was there.  The sun. I even took a picture.

It was not shining brightly, nor was it truly recognizable.  But it was there.

Behind the grey, the hurting, the pain, the rain, the storm, the winds that blow….the Sun was still there.

Yes, it was hard to see.  But it was that gentle reminder I personally needed so badly.  Life can get tough sometimes, and you can feel like you are totally surrounded by grey.

But Look Up.  You might just see a glimpse behind that cloud.  

A reminder that He is right there in the midst of it all.

~The Ocean Series~ Beach Balls

Ah, you have finally settled down with a good book.  Sunscreen applied, hat tilted just right.  The waves are lapping against your chair and the sun is overhead.  The book you have been waiting to read all winter.  

Then you are viciously attacked by a flying beach ball!! Actually a kid just missed hitting it back to his brother.  It came out of no where! You dropped the book, turned over your iced tea, and yes….tipped your chair. Continue reading
