IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU!

From the Heart

I discovered something this week in dealing with my grief over losing my sweet little animal friends to such a painful death. I had accepted it with my head, but little things kept popping up all week that tore at my heartstrings.

Pepper, a sweet little black and while, always met me in the driveway when I came home from shopping. She knew that I had cat treats in my shopping bags that I would reward her with. There was such a void in my life this week it was painful. The irony of it is evidenced in my poem this week.

God loves you because of who God is,
Not because of anything you did, or didn’t do.
He has given me such a peace this week
that surpasses all I ever knew.

Life does present its challenges,
Of this we are all aware.
But the Lord is there throughout it all
to comfort through our despair.

Seeing past the pain of the present
is a recommended state of mind..
God lifts us up above our circumstances,
and gives us vision of a special kind.

Are you going through a rough place?
Don’t give up in despair.
Look to Him who created you.
His presence is always there.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication,

with thanksgiving, let your request be known unto God,

and the peace that passes all understanding will keep your heart

and mind in Christ Jesus, our Lord.”  Philippians 4:6
