On a Monday….err Tuesday Morning

Discussion/Devotional Thought for the Day:

It’s Monday, no, it Tuesday!  UGGGHHHH
I am a full day behind, and the anxiety could easily rise, as if being anxious would shift me into some superhuman turbo speed!
I don’t even have to write this devotional because, because… well, actually the purpose of this blog is to re-center myself – as the exercise my son is given to help him avoid melt down come to mind…

Breathe….. nice slow long breaths – to which I add a phrase… Lord have mercy…..

Shift… remembering the presence of the Holy Spirit – the one whose presence assures me of the mercy, peace and love I have been given….

Accept …  God’s in charge – let’s see how He will arrange the day!

Paul says something similar to the church in Thessalonika… but catch the promise at the end….

Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 19 Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. 20 Do not scoff at prophecies, 21 but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good. 22 Stay away from every kind of evil. 23 Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. 24 God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful”    1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 (NLT)

About justifiedandsinner

I am a pastor of a Concordia Lutheran Church in Cerritos, California, where we rejoice in God’s saving us from our sin, and the unrighteousness of the world. It is all about His work, the gift of salvation given to all who trust in Jesus Christ, and what He has done that is revealed in Scripture. God deserves all the glory, honor and praise, for He has rescued and redeemed His people.
