Be real and be relaxed with God

I never knew that I can fall in love with a being whom I've not seen with my own eyes nor hear from Him directly.

But He has shown me that I CAN!

I was surviving on adrenaline for the past 2 days, i tried to calm myself down but cant seems to find a way to. In my mind, I was asking Jesus to help me, but in reality I was really trying on my own to do it. Because I dun seem to have located the right "methodology".

Then God unfailingly showed me how to do it! Step by Step, just how I can understand it!

NO, I dun mean that God appeared infront of me and held a conversation with me with numbered steps about it.

Instead, He inspired the authors of a daily devotion to write this piece, made the publisher publish this piece on this very very faithful day just when I need it!

Imagine the mechanics that this has to go through for it to work realistically?

WHAT are the chances that the authors knew that I have a need to calm down with specific instructions?

What are the chances that the publishers chose this article to be published on this day?

Multiply those just those two factors together and then you'll wonder now.... what are the chances???

Who can have such a powerful presence to influence so many chain events to occur for me to read this article on this day?

Only God can!

Now, isn't that true love? He moved this world for me just so that He can show me how much He loves me. :D

Start talking to Jesus today and ask him to show you How much Our Father loves you! And if you are feeling anxious, you can always try this out.....

Be real and be relaxed with God
by Rick Warren
Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world." Psalm 46:10 (NLT)
"Take a deep breath and try to forget anyone or anything that's around you and just focus in on God for a minute."

Hurry is the death of prayer. If you rush through all your prayers, it will kill your prayer life.

I have a habit in my prayer life, before I pray any prayer -- it is almost spontaneous -- that I take a deep breath. I just relax, settle down, and let go of any tension. Then, I'm ready to talk God.

So, when you pray - relax. Take a deep breath and try to forget anyone or anything that's around you and just focus in on God for a minute. Calm yourself down and get still: "Be still, and know that I am God!" (Psalm 46:10, NLT)

Jesus sat in Martha's house, but she was so busy, she couldn't stop to talk to him and enjoy his company. Jesus said, "Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things, but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing, and it will not be taken away from her." Mary chose to relax at the feet of Jesus, listening to him while "Martha was distracted ...." (Luke 10:40, NIV)

Be real and relaxed, "go to your room, close the door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you." (Matthew 6:6, TEV)
