I slept in today, very unlike me. I guess my body was more tired from my trip than I realized. This evening I decided to unpack and set my work space back up. I had taken the laptop with me and decided to label some folders, one thing led to another and before I knew it I had overwhelmed myself. I am grumbling to myself and the computer, “what are you doing!? You’ve never done that before!” My mom said maybe you are just too tired. I restarted it and it ran fine. I was indeed too tired. I slept in, seriously?! I could I be so tired?! I could feel a migraine coming on (which have gotten so much better) this also told me I was to tired and I needed to take a step back and rest.
I sat on my bed looking at a blank page for the second night in a row. Poppa, I’ve got nothing! I began reading through the verses I had read earlier in the week and highlighted. Two words jumped out at me this time as I read 2 Corinthians 13:11, “Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.” My eyes were drawn to “one mind“. I quickly looked up James 1:8, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Keep your mind fixed on Christ, that is where your peace comes from. When you are rooted in Him, when the Holy Spirt has you grounded to the source peace just flows. The devil seeks to destroy that stability, you can’t walk with God and the world and achieve perfect peace. Believing that is like Eve taking the apple from the tree. It creates instability. “…be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.” That’s God’s Word and it doesn’t lie! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
