“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
Do you think that just maybe Jesus is talking to you?
When it seems like everything is running at full speed, everyone I talk to doesn’t have time to talk.
There’s not enough time.
There’s not enough money.
There’s not enough help around the house.
Everybody is too busy.
Is it that time of year that you hustle it all together so that somehow - you can sit back and rest and enjoy the reason for the year.
That is not God’s best for you. Pushing everyday to the max - to try and do in 20 days - what should take 40 days is not God’s plan.
But God understands.
God is not mad at you for going shopping.
God is not mad at you for trying to do too much.
God is not angry at you for buying things.
God is not angry with you for shopping and planning and partying.
As a matter of fact, God is not angry with you at all.
God knows you want everything to be just right.
God knows how much your kids mean to you.
God knows you want your house to look its best.
God knows you are going to try to do more than you possibly can.
God knew, long before today, how busy you would be this year.
But you need to understand and believe in your heart that God is not angry at you."
