Come and listen, all you who fear God,
and I will tell you what He did for me.
I’m reading a book called, “The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life.” This belonged to my husband’s grandmother and she’s underlined, checked and starred all pertinent parts to her own life. It’s pretty cool to see how God touched her as she read.
I haven’t made it very far in the book, but once again, I found myself reading about a particular woman who consistently gave her burdens to God. She had been through some devastating trials and she explains to the person who is visiting her that she did not make it through all on her own. The visitor was quite shocked that she could endure; the woman assured her that God was the one who carried her to victory each time.
She made a point to say that not only do we need to bring our burdens to the Lord, but we need to leave them there. Often times, we carry them back with us. Worry, anxiety, fear, the actual event, whatever the upset is, it never fails to resurface throughout the day. Each time we feel heaviness, we are carrying the load, we must immediately give it all back to Jesus; He knows just what to do!
In doing this, we will have God’s perfect peace! Eventually, we will forget we even had any burdens to begin with.
I just had the most stressful week! I found myself in a complete frenzy. This morning, I woke up and felt sluggish, defeated and depressed! This is certainly no way to move into a new day.
Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear and the burden I give you is light.
I give it all to you, Jesus! Every single area, I give it to you!
Yes, my day brightened, almost immediately!
In quiet, the Lord spoke to me about “checking my spirit” periodically throughout the day. If you feel peace, you are walking in the Spirit. If you feel unrest, you are walking with the enemy.
My response to Him:
I need reminders! I get carried away and lose touch with you!
It wasn’t until later that the Lord spoke again in regards to spirit checking.
He told me to add posts entitled, “Look What God Did.”
This will be a wonderful way to boost faith and to recenter on God. Circumstances happen all the time, all around us. We take in so much noise that it isn’t difficult to become sidetracked with worldly things. We are weak human beings and we need the encouragement of other faith-filled Christians to keep us moving in God’s direction.
Fellowship is so important!
I encourage all of you to participate and share with your family and friends because I firmly believe God will use this in a mighty way as we share all that He is doing in and through us. It could be a Scripture that the Holy Spirit highlighted in your quiet time, a person who was put before you who gave you much-needed encouragement, a blessing in finances, healing, ministry…anything that God’s hand was placed on, share it with me.
I would love to hear your stories! I will make a post for each testimony that is passed on to me and as we read them, please comment if you feel led by the Holy Spirit. All posts will begin with…Look what God did…and then I will put the subject after it. I will go first in a separate post.
You can be anonymous or you can share details. Do as you’d like but the main focus is Jesus. What is it that He did?
Please send all stories to firstname.lastname@example.org for now. Put in the subject “Look what God Did.” You can use the same email for prayer requests. I would be honored to pray with you! Those will NOT be posted anywhere! They will remain private between God, you and I.
I so look forward to hearing from you!!
God bless you!
