If you got a Text message from God…

I was watching a game show, the Family Feud, and I heard a question asked that caught my attention, it was “If you got a text message from God what would He tell you to stop doing?” I was surprised as the team answering guessed all the normal “sins” you would think might make God want to text you about were not the answers on the board, the host was mystified and so was I! When the answers were revealed the number one answer was that God would text you to say, “stop stressing and worrying”. What happened to “Casting all your care on Him for He cares for you?” 1Peter 5:7 “So why be unhappy and fret about things we have no control over?”

One thing I have had to learn is that when there is nothing I can do about a situation I hold my hands palms up and mentally stack all those things I can’t handle on them and then lift my hands to present them to God to let Him handle them for me! We worry about our homes, our jobs, our relationships but when it comes right down to it we just need to remember, Psalm 127:1-2 If God doesn’t build the house, the builders only build shacks. If God doesn’t guard the city, the night watchman might as well nap. It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don’t you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves? King James says, “Give His beloved sleep.”

Isn’t it nice to know we are the beloveds of the Lord? Then let me ask you this, “Why are you walking the floor at night instead of sleeping? Psalm 37:1-4 “Don’t bother your head with braggarts or wish you could succeed like the wicked. In no time they’ll shrivel like grass clippings and wilt like cut flowers in the sun. Get insurance with God and do a good deed, settle down and stick to your last. Keep Company with God, get in on the best. Open up before God, keep nothing back; he’ll do whatever needs to be done. He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day and stamp you with approval at high noon.” Verse 4 King James says: “Delight yourself also in the Lord: and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” The DESIRES of my heart? That’s what the good Book says! Verse 39-40 of that Psalm says: “But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked and save them, because they trust in Him.”

A line from a favorite novel, in remarking that the truth will be revealed simply says, “It will out!” which is an Old English way of saying, Mark 4:22-23  “For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

One thing I have a problem with, maybe we all do, is a person that is being deceitful and is seemingly getting by with pulling the wool over unsuspecting victims eyes, but this scripture gives us the hope that God sees and knows all, and the veil will be pulled off, the wolf in sheep’s clothing will be outed and that will be time enough for us to rejoice.

Whatever the problem is that is keeping you awake at night, know that God is aware of all that is going on in your life and since He is a fair and just God, He will not suffer you being mistreated, go back to the verse in Psalm 127 that promises that He gives His beloved sleep, and when you get restless or worried just turn to that scripture or to Psalm 37 and read it, or my old stand by, Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Now you know what He would text to me, what would His text be to you?

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
