Don’t You Worry About A Thing!

Editor’s Note: For a couple of years, I have had this poetic song rising up, in times of anxiety and stress. For me, I enjoy singing; hence, I am calling this poem, a poetic song. You are free to have a different opinion.
Why am I releasing it, now? It just seems the time is right. I hope and pray this tuneful poem will bless those, who read it. If you are a songwriter or singer, then please feel free to make it into an actual song.

The Real Super Suit

Last week, I wrote “Calling Superman“. It is based on a story told by my niece on Facebook. It featured a man wearing a Superman costume. It seems the man thought he was the Man of Steel.

A friend read my blog post and asked “What about the other suit?” He was talking of the real super suit. A real super suit? What am I talking about? Continue reading “The Real Super Suit”

Commit Your Blog Post To God And See What Happens

Don’t you just love it when planning one thing and it turns out otherwise?  Here is what I am talking about.  On Friday morning, I had an idea for what to write.  It is based on the Proverbs 16:3:

3Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

I got the above verse from the Amplified Bible.  While reading, I got excited and prepared to write a story about committing my plans to God. After praying and committing the idea to my Father, I proceeded to write.

Guess what?  My proposed story morphed from a blog post on committing plans to one about rejoicing and giving thanks. It made for a nice day after Thanksgiving story.  What happened? Where did my proposed story go?

Here is what occurred.  I committed my planned story to God, the Father and trusted him for help. The Holy Spirit directed my thoughts to line up with the Father’s will.  It seems that my Father had a better plan. 

In the end, I followed through with God’s plan and published two stories. The first is on rejoicing and giving thanks; it was followed by the current post.

I would love to encourage my fellow bloggers to try it, for yourself.  Commit your blog post to the Father and see what happens.  Please remember, it is not about you or what you think.  It is about what God desires to say through you.

The Word is my Flashlight

A while ago, I was considering Psalm 119:105.  As I sometimes struggle with applying this verse, I asked the Father for better understanding.  Here is the Scripture :

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.

As I was considering its possible meaning, the Lord showed me an interesting scene. I was walking down a dark forest path. In my hand was a flashlight. The flashlight gave a brilliant beam of light that it was easy to see all the thorns, branches and shrubs in front of me.

Because I could see the obstacles, they were easy to avoid.  As I continued walking, a fork in the road appeared.  With the flashlight in hand, I shined its light to see what path to choose. With its brilliant light, discerning the path of righteousness becomes a little easier and less hazardous.

God is faithful to be with us and will guide us. There is just one problem.  We have to make a choice.  Will I listen to what God’s Spirit is saying to me? Will I heed the warnings and guidance that the light of Scripture has to offer?  If a wrong choice is made, will we turn around and admit it.  If we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive; courtesy of what Jesus did on the cross.
