Wednesday in the Word

Good morning, dolls.  How is everyone on this fine Wednesday?  The weather here has turned off back cool and looking stormy so I'm hoping for no bad weather later tonight.  I'm SO ready for Spring and Summer to make it's appearance and stick around.  My soul needs sunshine.
 
Today I'm linking up with Jessi from Frankly My Dear.  This girl is awesome in her love for the Lord and after talking to her, we actually are orignally lived near each other and didn't even know it!  Small world!  Go check her blog out and get to know this sweet girl. 
 
 
John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
 
Honestly, I would say that most days I feel like I have troubles and things that I worry over.  It may be as small as what to eat for lunch, or as important as how to pay the huge gas bill we got in the mail.  Either way, it is a part of our daily lives to worry.
 
We live in a society that gives us plenty of things to be troubled over.  Each day the crime rates grow and more lives are taken for senseless acts.  This world we live in needs help.  It needs God.
 
People want to lean on prayer when it is convient for THEM, but God doesn't work that way.  God wants you to lean on Him during good and bad days alike.  The troubles you face cannot be blamed on God for "not answering a prayer."  We, as humans, make our lives and the things we face come to us based on how we choose to live our lives day to day. 
 
We need to remember to not loathe in self pity, but rather give our troubles to God.  He already knows those troubles and has a plan for our lives.  Seek Him.

  1. I love the reassurance that we have in Scripture about how God truly does care for our little daily problems--as well as the big ones! We can turn to Him, and we always should.

  2. This verse is such a great reminder. I don't know what I have such a hard time handing my worries over to God. He has NEVER failed me.
