Is there something worrying you this morning, my friend?

Very often, we Christians don't use the word seems
more spiritually acceptable to say that we're

just very concerned,  Right?

Well, we all have stress in this life.  It is completely and utterly
unavoidable.  The question is then, when the stress comes,

What is our response??

I find myself sometimes not responding to these
stresses as a woman who really understands the great
love God has for me, so when I read this today, it
really blessed me, and of course, I have to share it
with my buddies!! 

This is from the writings of Charles Spurgeon as
revised by Allistair Begg...incredible men of God!!

May we all truly cast our cares on Him.

It is a happy way of soothing sorrow when we can feel, "He cares for me." Christian, do not dishonor religion by always wearing a brow of care; come, cast your burden upon your Lord. You are staggering beneath a weight that your Father would not feel. What seems to you a crushing burden would be to Him but as the small dust of the balance.

Nothing is so sweet as to...

Lie passive in God's hands,
And know no will but His.

 O child of suffering, be patient; God has not passed you over in His providence. He who is the feeder of sparrows will also furnish you with what you need. Do not sit in despair; hope on, hope ever.

Take up the arms of faith against a sea of trouble, and your opposition shall yet end your distresses. There is One who cares for you. His eye is fixed on you, His heart beats with pity for your woe, and His omnipotent hand shall bring you the needed help. The darkest cloud shall scatter itself in showers of mercy. The blackest gloom shall give place to the morning. He, if you are one of His family, will bind up your wounds and heal your broken heart. Do not doubt His grace because of your tribulation, but believe that He loves you as much in seasons of trouble as in times of happiness. What a serene and quiet life might you lead if you would leave providing to the God of providence!

With a little oil in the cruse and a handful of meal in the barrel, Elijah outlived the famine, and you will do the same. If God cares for you, why do you need to care too? Can you trust Him for your soul and not for your body? He has never refused to bear your burdens; He has never fainted under their weight.

Come, then, soul! Say good-bye to anxiety and leave
all your concerns in the hand of a gracious God

Have a most blessed weekend, and let's all rest in Him!!

Blessings and Hugs, Becky

  4. Becky, this reminds me so much of my mother. She had Spurgeon's book beside her bed, and she used it so much it was taped up!

  8. I'm such a great lover of Charles Spurgeon.

    This was my favorite part:
    "O child of suffering, be patient; God has not passed you over in His providence. He who is the feeder of sparrows will also furnish you with what you need. Do not sit in despair; hope on, hope ever."
