worry

Worry is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength–carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

sidelined

God knows what He’s about. If He has you sidelined, out of the action for a while, He knows what He’s doing. You just stay faithful – stay flexible -stay available – stay humble. Charles Swindoll

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Pslam 37:5

 

looking ahead

What you have been and done is in the past; it needn’t determine what you will become or do in the future.

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,  I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.… Philippians 3:13

love

Love, no greater theme can be emphasized. No stronger message can be proclaimed. No finer song can be sung. No better truth can be imagined. Charles Swindoll

The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. Psalm 145:8
