Illusions…a word I have been dwelling on recently.

Illusions: Falsely held perceptions or beliefs.

A big Illusion to overcome…We have a right, as Christian women, to live a trouble-free life!

The reality is that the JOY of the Lord is our strength and confidence in good times and bad.

 We played the role of  ”Potter” and then wrote a love letter to our ultimate “Potter”…

for God is the loving Potter and we are His carefully crafted earthen vessels,

harboring Heaven, a treasure of infinite value,

being His hands and feet on earth.

We stop hungering and thirsting for solutions 

and 

hunger and thirst for God!

 Jesus warned us that in this world we will have trouble. But he encouraged us to take heart

and be peacefully assured,

for through Him, we can overcome and weather the storms we face in this world.

Let’s praise God in the storms…

Count it ALL JOY brothers and sisters when you face trials of various kinds,

for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

And let steadfastness have its full effect,

that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

James 2:1

 

Beautiful day!
