God says - I AM Shalom

Holidays, week ends, vacations, stress, loneliness, feelings of betrayal and fear. Vain imaginations running rampant. Emotional exhaustion, financial exhaustion, spiritual exhaustion. How can we go on? Where is God! Is God even there! Does God even exist? What have I done to deserve this? Oh God help me!

Your situation right now can be combining all the different stressors into one big load. Like these clouds you see in this background it looks like there is no heaven only clouds but the truth is that the sun is shining because God IS.

I was regretting the past and fearing the future.

Suddenly my Lord was speaking.

"My Name is I Am"

He paused,

I waited,

He continued,

"When you live in the past with it's mistakes and regrets it is hard

I am not there,

My name is not I WAS.

When you live in the future with it's problems and fears it is hard.

I am not there -

My name is not I WILL BE.

When you live in this moment it is not hard.

I am here.

My name is I AM.

(Helen Mallicot)

As you face the unfaceable and deal with things that can't be dealt with. God is there.

Shalom blessings require our participation. Take time for God of course but take time for yourself too.

Take time to smell a rose and marvel at the beauty of a butterfly. Watch a cloud as it changes shapes in the invisible scheme of Gods world.

Let your heavenly Father minister Shalom into Your life. The peace that comes from nothing missing, everything in order and as it should be. Yes it is possible that's why it's called the peace that passes understanding. Seek it as you seek God. Those that seek WILL find.

Pause in your heartache for a time of peace. Pause in your horrendous situation for a time of Shalom. Take time for yourself, not working at your relationship with God, not trying to pray the "right" prayer. Just letting yourself be Gods child. Sit still in Papa Gods lap and let His great arms enfold you in a holy loving embrace of protection and Shalom.

Blessings, and Gods peace (((HUG)))

Jesus said, "Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree about anything and everything they may ask, it WILL come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven."

May God completely restore YOU to the best plan He has in Jesus Name.
