Quiet your mind.


That’s the word that came to me this week. I had received some news which got me

in a state of stress and suddenly started playing out scenarios in my mind. My thoughts

started going at a hundred kilometers an hour and as they began to pick up more and

more the word came to me,

“quiet your mind”

“Shut off the anxious thoughts, and fearful thoughts.”

The way I did that was by praying and talking to God about the news I received.

I gave Him those fearful and anxious thoughts and once I surrendered them to Him I had peace.

The problem didn’t immediately get fixed but the frame of mind changed. My faith and confidence

that God had my back was restored.

What are you stressing over today? What are you frantic about and what is stealing your

peace and faith in God?

Quiet your mind and I don’t mean in a “Zen” kind of way. Quiet those fearful, anxious and terrifying

thoughts by going to the Lord in prayer. Stop what you are doing and have a talk with Him about

what’s bothering you, about what’s freaking you out. He wants to help you and solve your problems.

He has got your back and He has your situation handled!

 

 

On one last note, I had an interview on my friend’s channel a couple of weeks ago to launch my very

first book and if you missed the interview and would like to watch it, I have left the link down below.

 

And if you would like to purchase a copy of the book, click here.

With that have a great weekend friends.

Bless you

He didn’t understand surrender…….!


 

 

What does it mean to really surrender? I am interested to know how God sees surrender. Let us look at a story of the young rich man who came to Jesus. His story will help us see surrender the way God sees it. As you know the rich young man came and asked Jesus what he should so to get eternal life (Matthew 19:16) We read in a later verse that the young man had kept all the things Jesus had suggested. We will pick up the story from there:

 

“The young man said, I’ve done all that. What’s left?

If you want to give it all you’ve got, Jesus replied, go sell your possessions; give everything to the poor. All your wealth will then be in heaven. Then come follow me.”

That was the last thing the young man expected to hear. And so, crestfallen, he walked away. He was holding on tight to a lot of things, and he couldn’t bear to let go. Matthew 19: 20

 

The young man had followed the commandments unwaveringly and to some extent he may have thought it was enough. But it wasn’t. He may of thought he could hold on to those other things because he was following the commandments. He thought tithing, going to church, praying, fasting, listening to Christian music, and reading the bible was enough, He thought that was sacrifice and it is but it was not enough. The word says,

That was the last thing the young man expected to hear. And so, crestfallen, he walked away. He was holding on tight to a lot of things, and he couldn’t bear to let go. Matthew 19:22

What are you holding on to tightly? The young man couldn’t BEAR to let things go! He held on really tight but real surrender is being able to let those things go. I read this scripture a few days ago and instantly things came up, things that I had been holding onto tightly. I brought those things to God and asked Him to help me let go, I want to really surrender. God wants everything! Partial surrender is not surrender at all. He wants our all……! Will you surrender….??
