Soul Notes To Self

Sing To The Lord ♥

The gloom of the mundane is chased away with a song from the heart. Psalm 96: 1 reminds us to sing to the LORD and how delightful when even the little creatures sing their heart out in praise to their creator. He made them this way for His glory and our pleasure. Let’s be thankful today for His tender mercies along the pathways of life, when things go right and when they don’t. ❤

Hush! Be Still ♥

When you’re racing inside and out and the moments are threatening and difficult and very overwhelming, God says, “I’m here” and I’m here for you in your circumstances. Be still, quiet that mind, and that heart of yours and hear Me out on this one. Yeah, beautiful one, Be still and know that I am God. The God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob. The God of the patriarchs and the God of miracles. I’m your God too if you’ll allow me to be.” Hush now, and listen for my peace. ❤

Search For Good ♥

So yeah, life is hard at times with difficult decisions to be made and all kinds of stuff sideswiping us off course! The first thing we might be tempted to do is run! Run so fast right away from it all. Run to be free of the problem or the hard choice or the just plain misery of whatever’s going down. But beautiful you, running in that direction will only be a race as to who gets to the next spot first, because that hard choice and that misery will be there waiting, ‘cuz it won’t leave. It follows us wherever we go! Yeah, so what we have to do is run alright but run right into the arms of our Saviour and our God to find the good that He has for us in the mess of trouble that we have! We can be sure, because it’s a Proverb promise and a soul nugget of wisdom found in God’s good Word, that if we truly search for the good we will find favor! How awesome is that? So yeah, let’s you and I and we and us, always, always search for the good in the bad and in the terrible, horrible, very bad days ❤ ❤ ❤ Let’s find the blessing!

Sweet Arms Of Grace ♥

When our God holds us there is nothing ~ nothing at all that can harm us.   Even when we’re hurting and sore and bruised and broken our fall is cushioned by His sweet grace and unconditional love.   No foe can catch us off guard ‘cuz our Saviour knows before we do just what’s up and just what’s ahead. He’s already got it for us! Already working on it for us, protecting us, caring for us, repairing, and preparing to bring us out. What a sweet, unfathomable, incomprehensible love is that?

Isaiah 3: 10 “Tell the godly that all will be well with them. They will enjoy the rich reward they have earned.

His Grace Is All We Need ♥

So some days it just feels like it shouldn’t begin right? Well, beautiful soul, when it’s all going in the wrong direction and up is down and right is wrong, you still have God’s gentle, sweet grace right there where you are! Yup, in your corner and rooting for you is the God of all creation with His plan to fix and repair and soothe and comfort. Ya know, when it’s all said and done, that’s enough to cover it! So sit tight, and bask in it today. Sit tight and let Him add a sweet essence of grace flavor to your all gone wrong day. That’s what He does. I love how He does it.

His Grace Is All We Need

So I know, sometimes we just need to fix the fence and repair the building. Sometimes we just need to do what we need to do and nail it. But really for our soul health and our own peace of mind, in our own broken down mess of trouble, it’s Just simple faith is the all important element in the dark moments of life! Just faith in our Lord can get us through the maze of confusion and chaos. No understanding necessary, no worry, no figuring, no planning, no plotting, no scheming and no control mechanism. No, none of that….. Just pure, simple faith and trust in God alone….is our strength and our sanity.

Sheltered in the arms of God; it’s a safe place to be. So when all rages wildly about you and your mind is doing whirling twirls in no kind of organized fashion, the place to be is quiet before the Lord and held tightly in His safe keeping ’til the quiet comes.

A discouraging day is it? Yeah, there are some of those, when everything that can go wrong does and when it’s all said and done, it’s all said and done and you can’t change it or make it different but you can shake it off, move on and make a difference. Begin with an attitude check and a heaping dose of God’s grace to soothe the discouragement, disappointment and add some mellow to the harsh. Those sand paper moments are difficult but they come and sometimes they trick us into thinking we’re not good enough or smart enough or strong enough to make it. They sneak up on us and catch us off guard and if we’re not alert they can win it over us and run us down.

Beautiful soul, you are not defined by your successes, your accomplishments or yeah, even your failures. No they don’t speak into who you are! You are not who you are because you’ve made it or haven’t made it. You are you and who you are is God’s creation made in His image, and made beautifully to fulfil His purpose in your life. He hasn’t left. He hasn’t walked away. He hasn’t left you alone in the journey. He doesn’t do that! That’s not what He’s about!

Trust Him to meet you right where you are ~ in that heap of insecurity and not good enough. In that heap of impossible and over the top expectation demanded of you. Let Him take your load, your worry and give you peace.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Oh how well we know that the old serpent still slithers around in our beautiful gardens ready to take us down and take us out. He still lies to us about our tree of knowledge and makes us believe his fibs and deceitful tactics will get us where we want to be! For the fun of it or for the better of it or for the success of it. But he will only take us so far before dropping us in the stench of our own pride.

Hey, beautiful you, you gotta know that for this precarious journey of life, a close relationship with your Lord will keep you strong in your faith when those blaring, glaring  temptations come a calling and that old serpent comes a slithering.

Our Lord? ~ He saves, He forgives, He redeems and He keeps! And you can know that you know that you know, that it’s all ok and all is well with your soul. The old serpent can’t even grasp a foothold when you’re in step with the Christ who keeps you from falling.

Oh yeah, some days are just like that aren’t they? Those days when “So small” sets in and leaves us feeling behind, betwixt and between. The irony of “Smallness is great” is overwhelming and our insecurities greet us at every turn cutting us off at the pass of success.

On those days, remember “Five loaves and two fish” and give yours over into to the hands of One who does miracles with smallness. Ask His blessing on all that comes and goes, and let His power rest on you. The thing is this, that’s all we need to do because “His strength is made perfect in weakness.” Paul knew it when he penned 2 Corinthians 12: 8 – 10 “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me. That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.…

Ok, so whatever it is you’re going through, or whatever it is that you’re about to face, or wherever you’ve been or whatever’s goin’ down, you know He’s still faithful! He always is. He’s always giving over the grace and handing out the mercy and yeah, you know God won’t let you down no matter the situation or the circumstance! Oh it might not be easy street and it might not be simple but He’s got it and He’s got you and He’ll see you through it and strengthen you in it. Just realize today, that your situation and circumstance doesn’t have you, but God has ‘it’ and He’s the Master of all creation and the Master of all of our stuff. So ~ beautiful soul, lean in closer when the going gets tough and gather up the grace that He gives and soak in that sweet, incomprehensible and unconditional love that He’s so faithful at lavishing on us. He’s got it for you today and tomorrow and the week ahead. Trust Him! Just trust!

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16: 33

“Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His loving kindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;..
Deuteronomy 7:9

What if the whole world just had a whole lot of mercy to give for the whole lot of us? What if it could be just one big mercy giving party down here; something like an ongoing kindness club and every one of us just had so much of it to give away that we made the world a more beautiful and better place? Just think if we could give without wanting an award! What if we could just take a lesson from the divine Mercy Maker who just hands tender compassion out daily to the lot of us? Just think of compassionate people giving compassion to people every day the same way our Lord gives it. Today we get to serve a faithful God whose faithfulness is so great and whose mercies go so deep into the heart of us, in a never ending way every day of our lives <3 !! We are so blessed with His mercy! #SoulNotetoself
