Peaceful easy feeling?

I had mail from a lot of you saying that you had experienced the feeling of “the other shoe dropping” and feeling depressed. I think for the next few days I will continue to talk about it.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

I was talking with someone who is of “my generation” and the line from this old song came up, “I’ve got a peaceful, easy feeling and I know you won’t let me down“. The words before and after that don’t matter in this context, the point was that those words caught at my heart. Again let me ask, how many times do you go to bed and wake up un-easy, worried and sometimes you don’t even really know “what” you are worried about? A psychiatrist would say that is called “floating anxiety” or being anxious without knowing why.

Philippians 4:6 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

Read that verse and digest it, let it nourish your soul and spirit the way your body digests the food you eat. Your body assimilates the food using the vitamins and minerals that are in it for its benefit. Did you digest that? Ok, now read this:

1Peter 5:7 So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.

 

About harolene

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!
