JITTERY

I was off on a tangent running around putting stuff away and cleaning just about everything in my house. I felt jittery! As far back as i can remember when i would get jittery i would clean. i guess you could call it nervous energy. I can't make a decision I would just start putting stuff away. Only thing i could figure is that things are out of control this was one thing i could control. I also think that if my   house and counters are clear then i felt things would be okay. I could also think more clearly.

Do you ever get that way?

After a quick clean up today. I felt better of course.  I came across my recent artwork of this blue bird
. Pictured here.
I put this verse to it.
Matthew 6:26 
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Nice reminder don't you think?
Anything to help the nervous Nelly in us all.
This helps me to remember what really is important.

TREASURE

I was thinking of the people God puts in my life each day. Each person was created by God.

I sort of had a dah...moment. Like God's whisper said care about the whole person. Jesus invited many to food before he spoke. Think about. He fed over 5000. Then went on to speak.
He broke bread with the disciples and then spoke.
When Jesus came back from the dead he sat on the shore grilled some fish and called the disciples to join Him.
I love when Jesus met the man on the road to Emmaeus
he talked with him. He invited him to come to dinner and it was when he broke the bread that the mans eyes were opened. Then the man realized who he was dining with, Jesus.

Jesus wants us to get to know people. Get to know and really be engaged.

Lord help me to meet people where they are at and love them.

I read this today.
Godly wisdom helps us distinguish the treasures from the trash in our lives.
Our sins are forgiven as far as the east is to the west.

Be on your way and love one another.

ACCIDENTS

Bamm! I slammed on my brakes as a car cut in front of me and I could not stop!


I sat shocked, my heart was racing and my body was tingling. I was physically fine but just stunned. I began to pray God help me get through this.

I had just come from the beach where I had relaxed and rested.

Then this happened.

My day started with God choose me. I want to go where you go. Holy Spirit direct my path.

What?!

I still believed in the prayer.

I got out of my car still knowing GOD IS WITH ME. I walked to meet the person in the other car and police man.

Miraculously everything went smooth and the accident was not my fault. Her family showed up and kept apologizing. The police man was most helpful. Deep within me I just kept remembering my prayer that morning. God use me.
That meant to me to always be an example of Christ.
God showed me how to be humble, gracious, slow to anger and compassionate.
It would be a process but I did it and I got through it. I have prayed for all involved since that day. Maybe someone needed to be prayed for.

An old saying is ....  Happens! You are going along and things happen. I felt what I learned through this was when things hit the fan how do we navigate through it. We maybe surprised like I was. The other people stayed with me until I was completely taken care of and back on the road. I just felt like God was reminding me that he is there for me.
