Let me entertain you with a HAPPY THOUGHT. It won't take long because a thought can come and go just that quickly.
The happy thought that I want to leave with you is that God cares how we feel. When we feel down, discouraged, or fearful; it may be because we have pushed God to the back of our minds. We then can feel lost. It is as if God has left us to our own devices. We can feel we have a problem we have to solve all by ourselves. We have forgotten God. God is there - caring - waiting for us to call him to mind. Consider Ps. 55:22,23c. (NIV)
"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
But as for me, I trust in you."
With this happy thought drifting in and out of our conscious and unconscious mind we can build upon it. We can rely upon God to give us calmness that scatters our fears, even when we don`t know how things are going to work out.
Trusting in the Lord gives us an added measure of strength. We can think more clearly. We will be able to take the next logical step with confidence. That is God's way. In God's time, in God's way, and in God's will - he will provide. God will provide not only the calmness during the problem but also the relief to the problem.
That God cares for me is a HAPPY THOUGHT.
