“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
A couple of weeks ago, after serious “blog neglect” I was working with my blog and changed my music. I don’t know why I felt the need to do so, but I decided to have Chris Tomlin’s version of Amazing Grace play and nothing else. I love that version of the song and it just seemed like the right thing to do…so I did it. I never gave it another thought. Then…on Monday, someone left a comment on my post that touched me deeply. The person said they were struggling with depression and worries and just let the music play and soothe them. This wasn’t something I did…no…this was something HE did. Days ago. He knew someone would need to hear that song on that day. He knew someone would click on my blog. He used me…little ‘ole me and my little ‘ole blog.
As a Christian, I never know when or how the Lord will use me. When or how he will use my words or actions…therefore, I need to be on my toes at all times, living my life for Him, in ways that are pleasing to him. In words and deeds.
Lord, thank you. Thank you for using me. Thank you for blessing my life and giving me some peace, for reminding me that in You is where I find peace. Lord, bless the readers and visitors of my blog. Please give them peace, Lord. I lift them up to you in prayer that you will calm their worries and fears and give them peace…thank you, Lord.
Sometimes I wonder how he will use me? What will happen today, Lord?
I hope you have a blessed day….and that you experience His peace.

I read these verses this morning as part of @stephanieweinert chapter a day challenge
It has been months since I have shared in this space. A lot of hard things have happened.
Tomorrow it will be four months since the sudden death of a close family member that was in his mid-fifties.
The grief is palpable. The loss is cavernous.
And life goes on.
And I remember that “he is my help and my shield.” And I will be thankful.
With all the grief and sadness in the world I wasn’t sure how I would handle today. How I would allow myself to grieve this loss? Today when there has so much WRONG in our world. In a post @deidrariggs shared today she reminded us that life goes on. And I realized that today this is my life. And I can grieve this loss. My life goes on... I am thankful for the 4 days we had her. On Friday I will remember each event of her last day and I will remember her dying in my arms.
And I will be both sad and grateful. #infantloss #trisomy18 #stlouischildrenshospital

Oh I forgot, I am a new follower, please stop by and consider returning the favor. All for His glory!
That is so true. We never, never know how God is going to use us or our words.
Praying for you!
