Be Happy In The Moment… #Hopeoverflowing

What does it look like when I try to control my little world???

Cavish…  and colorless, and gray.  Some days hopeless, and most days fearful…

What does it look like when I surrender my days, my time, my hope, and my life..

Well it looks like light, and love, and beauty topped with goodness and grace…

We can’t control the confusion of  things thrown our way…

We can choose how we handle these things in so many ways…

It begins with an attitude of love and truth…

That is the antidote that sets your foundation in place.  Love anchors our soul.  And God’s truth sets us free :)

Life is messy and complicated…. because people are messy and complicated lol

Yet…  God is not messy… nor complicated.

He is our rock of ages…and the anchor of which our soul craves.  When I literally chose God’s face and presence over worry and wonder, my heart is calmed, and my thoughts directed…

My focus shifts from the unknown, to the known…

And the known is my Lord and my God… My king and my savior.

I know that’s not the answer we sometimes want… We want clarity over our confusion, but when that’s not happening, we are pushed to control our situation, or choose God’s presence.

I’ve done both.. and when I have controlled the situation, words get messy, hope squashed, and my heart weary…

When I choose God’s presence over chaos my hope is directed in the palm of His hand, my words become a little sweeter, and my heart a little lighter…

I forfeit my plan, and trust His :)  I’m trying to put into words what this feels like and it’s hard. I struggle until I lay it down in His presence..

Sometimes it takes minutes, but there have been times where it has taken days or weeks or even longer…

What makes it easier, is when I change my prayers from  my wants and feelings, and I choose to focus on the things God is to me…

My redeemer.  My Savior.  My life source and my friend…

“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,

Do not fear; I will help you.”

Isaiah 40:13

He becomes the strength I don’t have.  The peace I am longing for.

I grab on to his hand, and walk in my day… Let the minutes unfold, and just keep doing the next thing.

I chose beauty over chaos and live my day filled with hope, because I Trust in God’s righteous right hand…

“So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed for I am your God

I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with y righteous right hand.”

Isiah 41:10-11

Walk in His peace today…

Live in Love,
