Super Sunday


It is time for Super Sunday!! Be sure and visit Peggy at Amazing Grace~~Mazes, Messes, Miracles to see more participants and join in !!

Okay--I'll admit it. I'm in a kind of funk here. I've had difficulty sleeping lately, then sleeping too much. The madness of the world is beginning to bother me quite a bit. I want to cocoon myself from all the hurts and pain.


Is this realistic? Is this even possible?

Where do I turn? Where do I go?

JESUS

"Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid nor dismayed for the Lord is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9


"The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid...The Lord is with me; He is my helper." Psalms 118:6-7


"You, Lord, give perfect peace even in turmoil to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you." Isaiah 26:3

"I have carried you since you were born; I have taken care of you from your birth. Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you." Isaiah 46:3-4

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like an eagle; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint. -- Isaiah 40:28-31

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die." John 11:25-26



My precious Jesus,

You are my strength, my strong deliverer. Come to my rescue and lift this from me--this feeling of oppression. Help me to focus on the positive instead of the negative. Show me, lead me, direct me, guide me. Wrap your arms around me and let me be so aware of your loving embrace. This world has nothing for me. You are my all, my everything..............

Beth,
I too have had trouble sleeping...I think I have to much on my mind. I know I have been worrying about everything. I know that God is in control and yet I still worry. I really don't know why??? Thanks for the scripture's.
You are such a blessing to me!!!

Blessings Beth...I Love RESCUE!!!
There's a song from Bing Crosby...
that plays in my head..."So if you're worried and you can't sleep Count your blessings instead of sheep and you'll fall asleep
...counting your blessings!"

Yes, I'm on for now...Thank You Jesus so much! Hope it lasts!!!
I'm counting it as a blessing! And yes, I still see double blessings of this RESCUE!!! Sending you this song! And mine...you know I have a battle with sleep & being in a "funky" mood...you think we were carved out of the same chunk of wood! Or chipped from the same diamond...or rock!!! Time to allow
Jesus to not break us into little pieces anymore, but build us stronger in Him...Our Rock, Our Foundation!!! The Scriptures are such a blessing!
