Praising More in Times of Chaos

Hello Friends,
This has been an unsettling year for many of us, who do not welcome hateful words, actions and division. I will not fall into the abyss, by detailing the news, politics and such. Instead, I want to focus on what is real and what soothes the soul: Jesus. Yep! Plain and simple! When I feel harassed by the society we live in, I close my mind to its chaos and listen to the Word and refocus my thoughts. Now, I do not hide my head in the sand.  But, I listen for what the Lord wants me to do and say. I keep my mind filled with the Word, so that I am ready to move when it's time to take action. During this next few months, I invite all of you to "steal away," and cleanse your soul when the media/news barges into your heart. Stay focused on the Word and hold fast to His hand. May the Scriptures, songs and art, be a balm to your soul~

Scripture: John 16:33 

"...I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

The Power of Gratitude

Hello Friends,
Today, I have a deep joy! It is an unspeakable joy that dwells in my soul and carries me through the good times and the bad times. That joy comes from my Father and the time I spend at His feet. I find that I spend more and more time thinking of Him and listening for His voice, in my daily walk. And, it is this precious communion with the Lord, that keeps me strong and filled with hope, in a world that is constantly crumbling. That joy jumps, tumbles and bubbles, even when I am a bit sad. It picks me up and brings my mind back to the many things that have blessed my life. Yes, it is my Father and the wonderful Comforter He left for all of us...gently swaying my thoughts toward gratitude. 

What part has gratitude played in your life?

Scripture:  1 Thessalonians 5:18 
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
