Rest For The Weary

Just a quick thought for today:

God gives rest to the weary and joy for the sorrowing.  Reference is Jeremiah 31:25 New Living translation.

If you are weary today or full of sorrow, God has just what you need.  Trust and have confidence in Him to lift you up and fill you with His joy.

Blessings……

I Got Nothin’…

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to sit at my computer and write.  Too busy heading to work on the bus, working, returning from work on the bus, plopping into my comfy chair 12+ hours later when I finally arrive home, and eventually going to get a bite to eat in the kitchen before returning to said chair for the rest of the evening!

Weekends have been a little less torturous but I have spent some time monitoring the movements of the remodelers when they actually do show up for a few hours work, and purchasing various and sundry items for my newly updated bathrooms and kitchen.

All this to say I’m sorry I haven’t been as prolific in the writing department as I would like to be but sometimes, well, let’s just say… I got nothin’!

Now, that’s not to imply I am totally empty and devoid of things to say, it’s just that I haven’t felt that the Lord has had anything lately to say to you through me.  There is a difference, you know.  Some folks just write just to be writing.  And that’s ok but I usually prefer to write when I sense the Lord wants to say something.  In the beginning, it might start out with me just writing just to write, but somehow it turns into something amazing!  Definitely not because I’m writing it, but because He’s giving me a new twist on what I start out with and He’s amazing!  Many times I’ll go back weeks later and read a post and think, “Wow, that’s really cool…did I write that?”  Obviously, I had some Heavenly help..

Ok, so with two blogs going now, Ivegotconfidence,  Have Confidence In God and IvegotconfidenceTwo, Growing Up In God, my brain is starting to melt.  I’m considering just going with the second blog as I love how it looks, but the first one is my “baby”.  So far, the last three posts on the first blog are the first three on the second, just so I could see how they both looked and to see if there would be any traffic on the second at all.  I would love your opinions and comments, if you would like to participate, and let me know what you all think.

Obviously, if I get no response, I’ll know that nobody is listening, reading, or even out there even though the stats indicate folks are at least looking at some of the pictures.  So, I’d love your help to decide.  Should I continue with both, or switch to the ITGUIG, or stay with IHCIG..eeny, meeny, miney, moe!

Well, that’s my silly decision making dilemma for the day, but I know many of you have many more very serious decisions to make daily, and you don’t have many, many readers to help you decide what to do.  I’ve been there too, several times, and I know it’s not a fun place to be.  It’s scary, often terrifying, especially if the decisions you must make are life or death, or life changing, such as moving, going through a divorce or separation, adoption, and so on.

There is Someone Who is always there to help you through any decision-making you might have to make, and that Someone is Jesus, God’s precious Son.  If you don’t have a clue Who He is or haven’t met Him yet, I’d love to share Him with you.  A relationship with Jesus will demand all you are and all you have but the benefits are Eternal and abundant.  When you give your all to Him, He gives you His all–you have access to everything He is–Healer, Redeemer, Savior, Provider, Comforter, Peace, Love, Joy, Mercy, the giver of unmerited or undeserved favor and grace.  He is Wisdom, Understanding, and gives us Knowledge beyond our human capabilities.

So, you wonder how He can help you out of your situation?  Yeah, I have wondered that myself on several occasions.  But, because I accepted Jesus into my heart several years ago, confidence in Him has grown so that even if I don’t understand, I can trust that He has my best interest at heart and will do just what will be the most beneficial for me at any given time.  I know He’ll do the same for you too.

But, you gotta ask!  He won’t force you and He usually doesn’t intervene without permission.  The decision is yours…what will you do with Him?
