Tonight I was reading along in my bible and to be honest I was feeling guilty because I haven’t been reading in it as much as I should be. I had a list of excuses for why I didn’t have the time. Packing endless boxes to move, filling out applications, starting Rylee in school and re-starting her in another school once we move, dogs eating things they shouldn’t be eating, that not so great but somehow I am addicted to watching it show on Netflix. I’m sure you all can relate, don’t deny it you all have your list of reasons too. 😉
But, what if God had a list of reasons for not listening to our prayers? That would totally SUCK! Talk about eye opener as this thought ran through my head I shut off my TV (ok paused Netflix) and pulled out my bible. I was reading through the book of Mark and one of my favorite passages came up. It’s the story of how Jesus calms the storm. How many of you out there have a storm going on in your life? I’m guessing everyone of you. Maybe some of you have some monster of a tornado that’s taking out everything in it’s path and sucking up all your strength or maybe it’s just a little rain that’s ruining your day. Either way big or small Jesus can calm your storm all you have to do is ask.
” He said to his disciples, “why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
They were terrified and asked each other “who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
There is something about that last line that always gives me peace of mind. Knowing that the God the wind and waves obey, loves me.
I never know when or what I am going to write about, usually I start with the intentions of writing about one topic and as I go along God leads me down a totally different path and I end up writing about something completely different. But tonight it was different. I read that verse and I knew I needed to share how it made me feel….Loved
Years ago I had a time in my life when I honestly felt nothing, I don’t know if any of you have ever experienced what it like to literally feel nothing but it is the worst feeling in the world. I honestly didn’t care what happened to me. But look at me now!! I’m like this little ball of emotions. I have feelings for and about everything! 🙂
GOD IS GOOD MY FRIENDS!
