Just a gentle nudge or sometimes a kick in the pants

9 May

So my post of yesterday…well in my email this morning from both my bible reading and devotion from Proverbs 31 came the clear voice of God reminding me of his love and mercy

Psalm 32:5  Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.

And from Marybeth Whalen at Proverbs 31 ministries:

“Bring them here to me.” Matthew 14:18 (NIV)

When I am overwhelmed: “If you can’t do it, just bring it to Me.”

When I am angry: “If you can’t do it, just bring it to Me.”

When I am hurting: “If you can’t do it, just bring it to Me.”

When I am confused: “If you can’t do it, just bring it to Me.”

Thank you Lord for your gentle reminders that you love me where I am and will help if I ask.

    Oh yes, especially the latter…as my new boss says to me…when you are stressed it is because you haven’t given it up to Jesus! Quit holding on so tightly…
