True Substance is Invisible

Today, at my desk my eyes take in my hanging basket and all my trees out back.  The wind, which I cannot see, is evidenced by the basket blowing along with the leaves on the trees and the water in the bird bath.  Then I ponder a notice I read on a community web page where someone is giving birth to a little girl soon and her needs.  It is answered by many who have extra things or willing to purchase for her.  That is love that you cannot see, but it is felt and know it to be real and true.

This, being Good Friday, I am turning off my phones this morning and quietly praying for our universe, feeling peace and harmony in spite of what the news is reporting.  Plan on keeping my television off as well and watching my thoughts to make sure they are positive.  Psalm 32:8 states “The Lord says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you.'”

To Struggle

This morning while studying and praying about the day, my first thought was about a meeting I have in an hour.  I am the treasurer of an organization and it is time for the annual report and audit.  Of course, there is nothing to fear, but dread creeps into my thinking.  I suddenly realize that the only time there seems to be a struggle in my life is when human will, pride and ego are at the forefront.  As I humbly release this fear to God, at the same time the dread is released and I know I can enjoy this meeting rather than just focus on it being over!

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.”  Psalm 32:8  This is not something I have to do on my own, but put my trust in Him.
