I have always loved you, so I continue to show you my constant love. ~Jeremiah 31:3
This Weekend~Easy Weekend Activity~May 17~Release the Need for an explanation…
one of the tugs at peace, contentment, and gratitude is my
need for demand for an explanation. This demand is the tar that keeps this baby stuck in anxiousness, stress, and tight-neck-ville.
When something goes wrong in life, I ask, “Why is this happening to me, God? Why did you allow this to come to me, God?”
“to me,” “to me”…I will “me-me-me” all the way to the looney bin.
Release the Need for an explanation…
So, instead, this weekend… I am releasing my need for an explanation. Perhaps you might do this with me? I am replacing what I know to be true instead. Perhaps you might do this also?
You are God’s masterpiece. (Ephesians 2:10)
You are forgiven (Ephesians 1:7)
You are a new creature (II Corinthians 5:17)
You are strong in the Lord (Ephesians 6:10)
You are accepted in Christ (Ephesians 1:6)
You are loved with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3)
You are overtaken with blessings (Deuteronomy 28:2)

Our Lord and Savior never gossips, never, lies, never points a finger in harsh judgment against His own. You can trust Him with Your deepest thoughts.
Don’t listen to the voices of the culture. They desire to lead you away from Perfect Love and down the path of shallow love. His is the voice we are to listen to.
Listen to what He says, “I love You with an everlasting love. I draw you to myself continually in lovingkindness and faithfulness. Jeremiah 31:3 Abide in Me and evil words will not, cannot destroy you and rejection cannot tear you down. You have My love.
