Alive and active

Love it when something jumps off the page at me!! I've been feeling a bit down lately and it's easy to get into a negative spiral with my thoughts and emotions. I took much needed time at lunch today to get into the word. I felt led to put on the armor so I turned to Ephesians 6 and started reading (for the umpteenth time) verse 10: be strong in the lord and in HIS mighty power. HIS power, not mine. I don't have to do life myself. In my own power I am weak, in his power, I am mighty!
Lord thank you that your word is alive and active in me!!! Thank you for your mighty power, I want to live in you and stop trying to do it myself. Thank you for the reminder that I need your power.
Stand your ground
Strength Will Rise

Take a Load Off

This is from the end of August...just haven't taken the time to type it in until now!
Jeremiah 17:19-27 ...bring no load through the gates of this city on the Sabbath-Do not bring a load out of your houses-keep the sabbath day holy by not carrying any load...

Lord we carry loads when we come into your sanctuary, when we enter your gates-we should have thanksgiving, but we carry a load instead. A load of hurt, offense, bitterness, insecurity, worry, anxiety, anger, stress, pain and unforgiveness. We carry this load-all this baggage, but you want us to lay it down and keep your sabbath day holy! Once we experience a day of rest we won't want to pick it back up because we don't have to carry it anymore! Wow! Lord, I lay down my load now, my fears and concerns, my desires, my life-I lay it before you now. I take your yoke upon me and receive your sabbath rest. I can rest in the finished work of the cross and trust in your timing! Remind me and all your people not to pick up our loads again.
