out of control

 but let your moderation be known to all men....

Why in the world would we want to be known as "the one who freaks out"?  LOL, still somehow that often seems to be our first reaction!

Can't you just hear Jesus as we meet Him at the pearly gates...."man you really  needed to chill out a little bit."  

In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ for you!  

Hey, let's define moderation:  restraint; avoidance of extremes or excesses; temperate.

I don't know, maybe that just doesn't sound exciting enough for some.   I tend to thing life has enough excitement without me adding to the chaos.  

Let's try this.... breathe.  Let God have his perfect work as we continue to do our work.  

It will all be ok.  He promised us it would!!

find delight


In Ecclesiastes, the author takes a thoughtful look back over his life and has what I believe is a dismal view.  He considers that there is nothing new, and that nothing can be changed but, I love what it says in chapter 12 vs. 10.  
The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. {acceptable...: Heb. words of delight}
What is your take on your current situation?  Is it dismal at best? 
In 2020 there are many things to capture our attention, good and bad.  Constant input…the whole worlds views on every topic.  My goodness, it is overwhelming and depressing.   
Maybe a good place to begin our New Year is back to basics…. to search out, to look for, to desire, to find words of truth, words of good report, words of delight, IN God’s Word…. 
I love you,
Find delight in Gods Word
