I used to start Monday mornings here on my blog with
“Joy For Our Journey”.
Well, I am going to begin it again but have renamed it
”Cup of Joy”.
I start most mornings off with a cup of “Joe” and the
Word of God, so the new name just fits! God wants to
fill our cups with joy today!
I read this morning in Psalm 37.
Verse 8 popped off the page.
Particularly this part of it:
Do not fret—it only causes harm.
Hmmm….a command to quit fretting?
Could that mean I am sinning when I fret or worry?
Well it certainly doesn’t glorify God, or actually
accomplish anything positive…ever!
FRET: to eat or to gnaw into; to cause to suffer emotional strain; to vex, to wear, corrode, chafe or fray.
Not too appealing, huh?
Are you allowing anything to VEX you?
I have to be honest…I have been…but today I gave it over.
When I saw the dandelion photo, I thought of all
of my cares just floating on the breeze…up and away
to the Lover of my soul; each care received by Him
and my burden lifted. What bliss…what joy!
I love this little chorus:
I cast all of my cares upon You.
I lay all of my burdens down at your feet.
And anytime, I don’t know wha-at to do,
I will cast all of my cares upon YOU.
Don’t be vexed…cast all of your cares upon Him!
He will delight in lightening your load!
May your day be filled with loveliness and
your cup filled to the brim with JOY!!!
