ISAIAH 61:1-4

ISAIAH 61:1-4

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me and has anointed me to
Preach the good news to the poor. .
Bind up the brokenhearted,
Proclaim freedom for the captives,
Proclaim release from darkness for the prisoners,
Comfort all who mourn
Provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them
The oil of gladness for mourning
And a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness

If I Perish, I Perish

What I needed???

"If I Perish, I Perish"

Back to God's sense of humor: After school today I was blog surfing and found an article about Queen Esther and her quote in Esther 4:6.

Everything Moms.

Thinking about it did indeed soothe me. But I'm already soothed. Why didn't I find it yesterday??? Probably because I would have screamed back at God, "But that's the point!! I don't want to perish."

Now, when my crisis of anxiety is over, I see. I understand. It's my false sense of control. Did it really matter when I got the news??? Not really. If I perish, I perish.
Aaaah! The irony! I'm willing to give the control back to God when the danger is over.

Forgive me God!! I know I do not control the universe; you do!

  1. Good luck with everything.
    And stay calm.
    And keep smiling.

  2. Thanks for the link. I had to laugh at your "but I don't want to perish!" comment. It's so true-sometimes we need to be reminded we can't/don't control everything.


So glad you stopped by. Leave a comment or a prayer request.
