From Frustration to Peace

Today is Sunday–a day which I spend in Sabbath rest.  But, I feel as though I took my Sabbath rest yesterday.

  • Tried to mow the lawn–couldn’t get the mower started after I couldn’t tell you how many tries–gave up…
  • Tried to clean the house–found I really wasn’t interested in doing this–gave up….
  • Tried to talk to my daughter on the phone–she was busy having conversations with two people in the background–gave up….
  • Tried to work on a few projects which only led to frustration–gave up….

After all of this “giving up”, I decided that perhaps Saturday was the day I would surrender the day to the Lord and have my Sabbath rest….instead of giving up on what I had intended to do, I gave up the day to Him.

All of the mentioned things above still need to be done.  But I spent the day yesterday in contemplation, prayer, tears, joy and eventually peace instead of frustration. 

Thank You, Lord….for guiding me away from the “things” that distract me from You and leading me into a day spent with You instead. 

All of that said, I do want to mention that I will be hosting a “giveaway”….nothing big…but, something I have made many of….given many to people I know…a useful item….

Not only that, but you can even choose your own color!!

I’ll be back later today with a picture of the item and details as to how to win.  I’m thinking of doing a “giveaway” once a month…something small…something handmade…we’ll see….

Have a wonderful day in Him,

Beth
