It has made all the difference....as I've healed from childhood abuse, dealt with a very short temper, overcome fearful anxiety.....and after my near collapse yesterday....the sweet presence of Holy Spirit, calling to mind those words of Jesus, has once again made all the difference.
Words that make a difference...words that chase out anxiety....
"I can't do all things. I can do this one thing well: Love God ~ Love Others; and for most this will be enough. When it isn't in the eyes of some, I rest, knowing that I play for an audience of One - in my prayer closet or speaking before a conference - the ONE.Love of Him and His bride is that for which I'm accountable."
That's all - and this one thing I CAN do....better all the time.
And when anxiety surfaces....as when I'm trying to remember far too many details, or when dear ones are moving in droves, or when a son has graduated and his dream is thousands of miles and several continents away, or when I must travel for an extended period of time and trust my children once again to Abba Father.....Phil 4.6-7.....I won't wallow in the anxiety, I will pour it out to Abba and His unbelievable peace will guard my heart and mind IN Christ Jesus.
Though, of course, always, I crave the prayers of those who love Abba....because really....I am at times a crazy woman...or at the very least life has become crazy for this season. ::snort::
Living all of life before the face of God...
