Simple choices?




Simple choices? Pressure. The crush. It mounts and mounts until you can almost feel the top of your head coming off. Tension breaks into your day; it was going along pretty well, then something went wrong. The next thing you know stress walks right in the door. Perhaps it was criticism that cut you down. It may have been failure that covered you in shame. Maybe it was something as simple as the realization that what you planned just wasn’t going to happen.


Think about it. What’s a person to do? Some people simply develop very thick skins. They ignore criticism, do an end run around failure, and make it a point not to plan anything, expecting bad things will happen to wreck their plans anyway. Is that how God wants us to handle the inevitable pressures of life?


God’s Word tells us: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28)?”


You know something, the weaker and more feeble your are when you come to God with the pressures in life, the more comfort that is waiting. Makes choosing kind of simple after all?


“Heavenly Father, thank You that I can come close to You, knowing that the barrier of sin has been removed. Thank You that You give me true rest for my soul and perfect peace in my heart - and that in the midst of any storm Your peace that passes human under-standing forgiveness of sin. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
