Sit still…. Stop… enough jumping up and down already!
Whew! That Mom is so excitable! Just because the SUN is shining right now! (The temperature is still only 0 degrees, but it is supposed to be getting warmer over the next few days—FINALLY!)
Humans are very adaptable, though, aren’t they? This place is filled with Easter decorations, plus the screensaver is showing all kinds of Spring pictures: flowers of all sorts. So, if the Spring hesitates outside, at least it is here inside!
Thank You God, that the inside of PEOPLE doesn’t have to match the outside storms.
And in case you think you just can’t conquer the storm, there is power available to you: “…the greatest power ever unleashed on this earth was the power displayed when the Almighty God held back his power while his Son was persecuted and murdered so we could be saved. Now that’s an awesome display of power.” (from Heartlight Daily Verse)
Next, this is for our friend
(but it’s good for you too) who just got PUBLISHED! CONGRATUALTIONS! The Mom “just happened” to read this verse right before her article—and they match so well with what she wrote:
“My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit. Then you won’t feed the compulsions of selfishness.
For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness. “
(Galatians 5:16 The Message)
