Have you ever experience financial hardship, loss of a loved one, severe illness of a spouse, child, parent or self? I call these events life storms that will come and go but you can find peace in the mist. In my life over the past year, storms have been raging at hurricane levels but I have found peace and calmness by trusting in the Lord.
A hurricane is a storm with cyclonic winds that exceed 74 m.p.h. Rain, thunder, and lightning usually accompany the winds. Hurricanes can be very fierce storms with relentless pounding winds that continue hour after hour. But a very fascinating thing about a hurricane is its “eye”—a place of perfect calm in its center. Though the winds blow and rage all around it, there are none in the eye.
So with us in the storms of life. With the Lord as our center, there is calm and peace, even in the darkest of life’s storms.
The power to unlock the door of a negative state is in your hand. It’s called the key of positive thinking and life. Set yourself free today from whatever has you bound.
“I am living in hell from one day to the next. But there is nothing I can do to escape. I don’t know where I would go if I did. I feel utterly powerless, and that feeling is my prision. I entered of my own free will, I locked the door, and I threw away the key.”
― Haruki Murakami
As, we transition from one year to another, many will take with them a few extra pounds of heartache into the new year. Today, shed a few pounds by forgiving and loving more then attempting to get even.
Lord, cleanse heart! Today, I desire to shed unforgiveness, hate, bitterness, anger, hostility, an abusive mindset. Please fill me with love, compassion, forgiveness, joy and peace. May, I become an example for someone else.
Forgive One Another Matthew 18:21-22, Col 3:13
Today, we must value our time with one another. Each day I’m reminded of how short this life can be. For example, the next second, minute, hour, day or week is not promised.
Just something to think about!
Enjoy life to the fullest…….
