Encouraging Your Spirit
INTERFERENCE. Distraction. The swirl of life rumbles like a 3600 watt speaker in the back of a tricked out car. These are noisy days. I know. I foresaw them. I am not distraught. Listen. Put in the first earbud. Tune it to Me. You’ve got one life to live. Do not allow the noise to steal your steps. Live and walk in love. Be connected to Me. Take every bite in the celebration of My company. Put in the second earbud. Tune it to what’s in your path today. For the stranger who doesn’t deserve but totally needs your kindness – be that. For the uprising and rumors, walk wisely and justly. Invite Me to strip off fear like removing a wet coat. The time is coming when I will deal with it.
Until then…For the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,
Do all the good you can,
To all the people you can,
In all the ways you can,
As long as ever you can.

Don’t be distracted or frightened by the rumors you hear in the land. Sometimes you hear one thing and another time something else: rumors of violence and uprisings. The time is coming when I will deal with Babylon’s idols; the whole land will be disgraced, and her wounded will fall in her midst. Jeremiah 51:46-47
But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don’t take yourself too seriously— take God seriously. Micah 6:8
God, In all the noise … I listen for You. Nothing can separate me from You. In Jesus Name, Amen
