A Special Form of Communication

Do you have a special form of communication between you and the Lord?

Do you have a certain something that brings you instant peace and joy that you recognize as a sign of God's presence?

Some people see a rainbow and are filled with peace.

Some people see a star and find comfort.

Others may see a feather or a leaf that floats in front of them and it reminds them of a promise that was spoken over them a long time ago.

I have always found a sense of peace when I see a Bluejay or a Red bird. It's always made me stop and take notice of my surroundings and pause and give God some GLORY because I feel him near. That happened last Friday morning when I pulled out of my driveway. I saw a bluebird chasing a redbird and it instantly brought comfort to my soul.

I felt the arms of the Lord wrap around me and say "Peace, Child, I am with you."

I still feel that peace. That unexplainable peace that surpasses all understanding from the only source that can fill you with joy and comfort.

Today I can say that God was establishing His peace with me where the decision of making an offer on a house was concerned. He said... "I've got this... you don't have to worry." And even though it turned out a little differently than I expected, I'm happy all the same. The Lord truly does know best! Trust him today for your decisions.

I hope you have a special form of communication between you and the Lord. It's those moments of sight that give an infusion to your faith that is mostly unseen but oh so neccessary in how you deal with the everyday stresses of life.

Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him!
Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you're on their side,
working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is
about to arrive. He could show up any minute!

Don't fret or worry.

Instead of worrying, pray.

Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.

It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Philippians 4:4-8 (Message)

I pray you can hear the whisper of the Lord in your life today.
