The words (of Jesus) “Let not your heart be troubled” are still valid today. (John 14:27)
Did he ask us to have troubled hearts over this disease or the supposed government conspiricies that go with it? Did he ask us to worry and be all worked up? No, Again!
Why Have Peace? Even 911 operators are expected to stay calm! Why? Because if you are upset along with everyoneelse, you cannot help anyone (for starters) and in fact, you might even cause more harm! Peace does not mean to not take action!
The Peace of God works with his wisdom, his righteousness and everything else that is of God! All of his attributes are in agreement! So, be at rest, be at Peace, be in His Wisdom…
Anger, Fear and all these things of the flesh will not help you make wise decisions in God! Get rid of those things (praying for his help) and you will fare better in being led by God’s spirit. -Laura Grace
I know I know this seems like a terrible thing to say on Valentine’s day! But for those who do not get Valentine’s please listen! I used to be like this little whiney kid about V day and not getting hearts and flowers or necklaces or cards or whatever else from my Husband. He turns over his whole paycheck to see the bills paid and things taken care of.
I Pled my case with him a few years ago about how little girls dream of their sweet baboo giving them valentines’ and chocolates and how Television tells us all “That’s proof we are loved’ (if we get V day stuf!).
Somewhere in the middle of my tearful speech trying to make him feel bad, I realized i (who says I’m a Christian and not of this world) was trying to MAKE him follow the ways of this world. I was wrong and God is right! 😮
He just got up and went to work again, Faithfully demonstrating his love as he does day after day.
Honestly I cannot bring myself to be upset anymore even if I tried. Deep down I know Getting a valentine or not is not proof I am loved one way or another.
Love is faithfulness, committment and daily decisions and I just can’t bring myself to cry like a small child anymore over how my husband didn’t let the ads on TV send him into a guilt filled frenzy to get me cards and flowers.
And I mean this! with all of my heart! I think it’s sweet we have a holiday decicated to love but I gotta keep it in perspective. 🙂 I’m really thankful there is not a “every-wife-has-to help-fix-the-car” Holiday! and what If I came home and found him in a pile of tears because I didn’t? 😮😝
