Storm I said “Peace, Be Still”

Life has its ups and downs so, I know if you are human you will have a few storms in your life. These storms can be small and all the way up to life-threatening storms and we try to handle things all on our own. I’ve been there and found out that trying to handle these storms on my own I start to get weak and burnt out because I am relying on just my physical help. I can try and try but when it is all said and done, I hit a dead end and there is nowhere to run and then I’m all out of answers.

In the bible, the disciples had a situation that needed immediate attention or their lives could have been lost. They were in a storm that was ready to destroy their lives, but they knew a man named Jesus ( a name that’s powerful than any name) they call upon the name of the Lord.peace-be-still He came out and told the storm “Peace Be Still”, and the storm ceased, God said unto them why are you so fearful, do you not have faith? We don’t have to handle our storms by our self, we have to become more like the disciples and call on Jesus.One thing we must have is faith, do not be afraid. Our storms are raging and ready to take us out, but we have something special on our side we just have to utilize Him. We have to be strong and stand firm on God’s word so we are able to stand and tell our storms “Peace Be Still” in Jesus name without fear, but with boldness.

Mark 4:39-40  And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is that ye have no faith?

Our storms may frighten us and the wind may be strong, but continue to stand on God and remember what Jesus says ” Where is your faith?” Stand firm and point out your storms by name and tell them where to go.

Stay Blessed

Meditation of the Week

STOP! Just Breathe

It might sound easy to do but it really isn’t, time consumes us and we forget to stop to take in the fresh air. Everyone is busy with their jobs, business, family and etc that we lose ourselves sometimes. If you are anything like me even when you go to bed your mind continues to wonder and we don’t get much sleep. Having time to yourself each day is very important, it allows you to take in some fresh air and clear your mind for a few minutes each day.

This week try taking the time to stop and take in some fresh air by; drinking your morning coffee outside on the patio, taking a short walk, reading your bible outside while the birds sing, yoga on the grass or whatever you do to ease your mind and just take in some good old Vitamin D.

Life can get crazy, don’t let the stress build. Stop and breathe when you get the chance.

Stop and breathe when you get the chance.

Blessings this week
