All Things

What humbles me most, I think, is that God works through all things.

He takes all situations that we find ourselves in, or see ourselves with no way out- and uses it to show us more of Him if we are looking for it. Don't get me wrong- it still takes eyes to see! But once you begin to practice taking in God, you come to find He's a blatantly sneaky fellow- which makes what he does all the more awesome. Whether he humbles us or honors us- what a joy. Wow.

I just finished reading Philippians- and in this book is the secret to joy.

Are you ready?

Are you listening?

When we quiet ourselves down, when we, from the depths of our souls express to the Lord our deep-centered thankfulness- then we have joy. There is no anxiousness there- only peace. And that is a wonderful thing. We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength.

He gives us each day- what beauty!

He loves us, whether we fall or stand, what mercy!

And when we live in him, we are hidden in him- what a sanctuary!

There is no fear in Love, and God is Love.

So it is written, so shall it be done (Amen.)
