Day 10~ Advent Countdown-In His Word  12-10-2023

I have had a full day, it is supposed to be a day of rest and I am at present resting, all but for this little blog post. I wandered around in some stores looking for a specific thing for my house today. It was stressful for me because I do not like spending money on anything. If it costs more than 20 dollars I stress out. I know it is wrong, I know I can afford it, but it was not always so. So the memories in the back of my mind are from having to take that 20 dollars and feed myself for a week and get myself to work and back on rainy days or even snowy days. So, it is hard for me to get through it. I begin with a shaky feeling and then a knot in my stomach, but then I remind myself that I can trust God to take care of it! Sometimes I remember that I tell others ‘Peace be still” just like Jesus. That’s when it stops, because I am reminded of Jesus calming the storm, I remember how he called out the disciples for not having enough faith, not trusting Hiim enough really.

When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence (peace)! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39

When we get all caught up in stress and nonsense we just need to remind ourselves trust God, He is in control and remember that there is no reason to worry or be afraid because He is with us in all that we do, He never leaves us nor forsakes us. So why worry? Why fret? He’s got this one too!

Be filled with peace today, In Jesus’ name.
