A Little Inspiration


I like to doodle (above picture) to calm myself down. I have been so worried lately. Just stressing out really bad about bills, money, and all the other burdens that are on my shoulders right now (too many to mention and don't we all have a list that is way too long). On top of it all, I won't even get into the sad state of the world. It's been really wearing me down and I have been kind of a nervous wreck, and frankly, I have been very scared. As I was doing laundry today I had a bible verse come to me out of the blue (John 14:27) and it touched me and helped calm me down. Let me assure you that things like this don't happen to me every day, and I'm certainly not a scriptural scholar (though I'd like to be), but since it did hit me out of the blue with a great deal of power, I believe it came as an answer to prayer.

It was just what I needed and maybe it is something that one of you needs to hear so I thought I would post it. It was just a sweet reminder where true peace comes from (not from the world but from the creator of this beautiful world). I am so grateful for this little inspiration that came into my heart today and has brought me back some sense of comfort...

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Thanks so much for sharing! I really needed this. And your hand writing makes me jealous. As for Sadie, I know that cactus must've really hurt. I love the parable that you used for it though.
