  • Creating Margin

    Are you going through a time of stillness in your spiritual walk with God? Perhaps you have witnessed others leaving for college and you feel left behind. Maybe God has answered a prayer in a friend’s life, and he has moved on to a promising new job or venture. Suddenly you are faced with a challenge. Looking at the situation from this perspective changes things completely.

    Few of us would ever want to move ahead of God’s will. We know that when we wait for His answers, we receive the very best He has to offer. Time spent waiting before God is not stagnant. Though we may feel as though there is little spiritual growth involved, there is plenty... We are creating that Godly margin we are learning about in this series "Breathing Room". God uses quiet seasons in life to strip us of the very things we love the most—ourselves and our own desires. Both keep us from recognizing God’s goodness in all we know and experience.

    Take some time today and create some margin to focus on what God has for you. Maybe He has been speaking to you or directing you and you have been so busy that you can't hear. HE speaks in many different ways and more often than not in a still small voice. You cannot hear that quiet voice amongst the clutter. Be still. Create margin. Get Gods direction.

  • Psalm 62:1-2

    Psalm 62:1-2 “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”

    Have you ever been on a hike and had to carry a backpack? Even if there weren’t many supplies inside, those few extra pounds probably took their toll on your energy. When you stopped for a rest and slid off straps from your shoulders, that moment of unburdening was AWESOME.

    You may be carrying spiritual burdens right now and not know you are bearing extra “pounds.” Unconfessed sin, unnecessary guilt, anxiety, fear, depression—these are just a few of the loads you could be laboring under. God didn’t design you to function this way. That is why He sent a caring, gentle, loving Savior to take care of these problems for you through His forgiveness and grace.

    Jesus wants you to lean on Him and hand over your burdens, all of them. When you do, you’ll experience a lightness of spirit that knows no bounds. Find rest in God and God alone. Allow Him to be your cornerstone.

  • Are You Feeling It Right Now?

    "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

    Each of us knows the pressure that comes from stressful times. Headaches, tight neck muscles, and even bouts of depression can come from too much external pressure and not enough peace within. There are those who right now are weathering a severe emotional storm. They feel forgotten, over-looked, and rejected. Others are struggling with going on after the death of a loved one. How do we find peace when all that surrounds us seems so dark and lonely?

    Some who read these words are fighting feelings of guilt for struggling emotionally. After all, aren’t Christians supposed to be strong and confident? What will people think if they see you are weak and frail? For the Christian, this is the best place to be—helpless before God.

    Stress can drain away your strength and joy, but God has a solution. He is your peace and strength. And, when you call out to Him, He answers you. He will never refuse you. The dark trials of life are not the end but a rich opportunity for Him to prove Himself to you. If you have lost a loved one, He will comfort you. If you are struggling with a long-term illness, God will be your strength. He has healing in His hands. Let Him take your trouble and use it to draw you closer to Him, where you can find hope and eternal peace.
