Not good enough unless..

Hello dear ones,
Just meditating and sharing what's been in my heart for a couple of days. My days have been so hectic...I may need to tweek my agenda since I make it. Goodness! We got back from Central PA looking for homes tonight. No house yet :P but after a looong drive back home, doing baths, bedtime routines and all I sat with my DH to watch a couple of Food Network shows. My goodness! Why something so 'fun' as cooking has to be made a STRESS...for crying out loud (ok! first time I use that expression, lol!).


Everything around us is stressful. If you do something well...according to the world standards is not good enough unless you do it in 0.2 seconds!! Gee! This needs to stop. That is a lie. You are good enough and you are very loved. :) On my trip back and forth from central PA today I kept meditating about the Hebrew word Shalom. I kept declaring this word, over me, my DH and children. I asked the Lord and even googled its meanings. There is a hunger in me to seek peace, true peace. The one that stays with you even if things don't go well.

I still have much to learn. I want His peace in my heart. It is part of the Fruit of the Spirit. Last week I studied the story of Jesus blessing the children. I taught the kids the difference between a prayer and a blessing. They then started practicing blessing each other with these words: May God give you peace (following Numbers 6:24-26).

So much to learn. Today I was putting it into practice. Trips with little kids are stressFULL.
Life, traffic, appointments, and even cooking can become stressful. Are we masters in making things stressful? I'm asking my Lord to make ME a peace-maker. A creator of PEACE. In my home, my parenting (uf, I need that one), in my appointments, even while I cook and do other chores.

Stress brings sickness...it distorts things and don't allow you to focus on what really matters. You may see less projects, but believe me God is working in my heart, I'm not only creating art, I'm creating life around. Il share a dream I had this week to see what do you think. In my dream I was teaching others how to make wax people. (Don't laugh!) Interesting to me, I was CREATING something beautiful, teaching it also...God gave me His ability to do that (even in my dream). I was making human figures with wax! And I was good at it. :) Well...one thing was missing in my dream for this I prayed and still will pray some more. In Genesis, God created mankind....beautifully  and wonderfully...but it was not until He breathed on them that they were instruments of His peace. Make me an instrument of peace Lord. Breathe on me...I need to be full of you and your Holy Spirit. Breathe on me....He makes such beautiful things don't you think?!!

There you have it...my artistisc loving heart, bringing my thoughts out loud. Life is crazy but the God of peace still reigns. Is He reigning in your life today with peace? He WANTS to do beautiful things.

If you got DOOOWN here, most probably you know me and love me...thanks for reading. For you I dedicate this song cause He still loves MAKING beautiful things. He CREATES...I love that!

Happy Sunday!

  5. Great post abt how peace can be had in us & out for others to see. He is our God of peace & all else pales in comparison. He gives us breath, guidance and rest. You are doing a great job centering all things before the King. He will carry you to His river of peace & establish all your desires in this new land.
