Some days I am human!! I let worries over take my thoughts. WORRY!! ANXIETY!! STRESS, STRESS and more STRESS!! Human nature is a terrible thing. When I do let these things ruin my day God always ,like clock work, leads me to read the right passages and words to wake me up and KNOW that "HE" is always with me!! Today was one of those days and I wanted to share the wonderful passages "HE" led me to read!!

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
"For the LORD your God has blessed you in all that you have done; He has known your wanderings through this great wilderness. These forty years the LORD your God has been with you; you have not lacked a thing. Deuteronomy 2:7

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

"An anxious heart, weighs us down." Proverbs 12: 25

I pray you find comfort in these passages from the Bible and don't let life's worries get you down because "HE" is in control and like the scripture says,
"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

There Is a Great Conductor Inside You

I found this story and it was so moving and inspiring I wanted to share it. I copied it off of another website to share with everyone. The author info is attached it is also:(Copyright 2008 by United Press International.) Have a blessed day and I pray you will get inspired from this beautiful story written by: By REV. JAY SPEIGHTS.

There is a great conductor inside you

WASHINGTON, One time I was on Miami Beach just around sunrise, and I looked out at the ocean just as the sun was beginning to rise. I saw this narrow path of golden light streaming down from the dark eastern sky across the water toward the shore where I was standing. This path of light continued to expand until the dark sky and water were alight with the radiant sun of a new day.

It seemed like this particular sunrise was a personal invitation from The Creator for me to step into this perfect day and just live it. As I stood there, I thought, "The sunrise of each new day brings with it a renewed invitation from The Creator to live life and walk down an enlightened path to my destiny." Then I thought, "I am the only one preventing me from accepting this daily invitation. How many times have I turned around and walked back towards the dark yesterday or sunset, and not toward the sunrise of a new day filled with bright new possibilities?"

I began to reflect on the fact that I was an overly sensitive soul for the most part, who was mired in a negative and unproductive thought process. On many occasions I would let every little thing someone said or did grow way beyond its dimensions, and basically ruin my day from that point on. Why do I give people and events that type of power and control over my life? I knew this had to stop.

As I stood there and continued to observe this awesome celestial event that seemed almost musical, it occurred to me that I should approach each day as though I were writing and conducting a symphony. You see, in a symphonic orchestra, the conductor determines who plays, the instruments that will be featured, and the tone and tempo the symphony will take. As the conductor, it is my symphony from start to finish, or my day from sunrise to sunset. I have total control. The Creator gave it to me. More importantly, it is my responsibility to see that no discordant notes will be played in my daily symphony. Discordant notes in this context are those individuals or things I let turn my daily symphony into a cacophony by disrupting it with negatives.

As the conductor of my daily symphony, it is my job not to let them continue to play. If I do, then I am no longer the conductor. I have passed the control of my daily symphony on to them. Whenever a discordant player starts playing in my daily symphony, I say in my mind, "Hey, Jay, my symphony is being played in the key of A, and this person or thing is playing in F, so get them or it on the right key, or remove them." This is my cue to correct this situation and shift my thought process. I usually recite the following affirmation.

Today is my day

It is a symphony

I am the conductor of this symphony

I control this symphony from beginning to end

There will be no discordant notes in my symphony

My daily symphony will end blended and harmonious

With the setting suns

So today I am asking you to get out there and become the Leonard Bernstein of your life, and approach each day as you though you were writing and conducting a beautiful, flawless piece of music. Don't let anyone or anything disrupt it. Remember, you are in control of your daily symphony.

HIS Hand

This is written by a precious,wonderful gentleman I know. I hope you enjoy reading and feeling his words move in your heart as I and my family have.
Praying Hands
When you are feeling trouble, reach up and grab His hand,
HIS love for us will guide us through and help us stand.
No matter how bad it may seem right now,
take HIS hand, hold it tightly and HE will show you the way.
Speak HIS name each and everyday,
Walk with HIS hand each day and HE will lead you along the way.
You can look and see the scars from the nails in HIS hands,
follow HIS lead, for HIS way never fails.
HE will pick us up because HE is tried and true,
and than our lives will not be so miserable and blue.
HE will love us to the very end.
HE died for us on Calvary's old cross,
because HE wanted to save us and for us not to be lost.
HE endured a lot, look at HIS hands and the wound in HIS side,
but through it all, safe in HIS bosom we can hide.
HE rose from the grave and is sitting by HIS FATHER on HIS throne,
Accept Jesus now, it would not be wrong.
Weep for HIM to help, as HE is probably weeping for us to.
I know for sure it is HIM we can trust.
Take HIS nail scarred hand and you will be glad you did.
All your fears,worries, and strife HE will surely rid.
HE loves us and wants us to be totally free.
Take HIS hand now and with Jesus,
be all that you can be.

That Sound

I hear a sound so beautiful
Sometimes it's loud other times so sweet and soft,
In the mornings it makes me want to scream with its wining,
In the afternoon I am straining to hear the sound but its not there
By late afternoon I am so excited to hear that sound again telling me
all about its day.
Through out the evening the sound is louder and louder but than
it gets softer and sweeter until all I hear is silence.
That's when I enjoy the sweetest sound , my precious children sleeping.

Blessed be the Children who run Barefoot

They run barefoot no matter what the weather. It can be sunshine, rain or snow they don't care they just want to go, go barefoot. Happiest they are when they are running , running barefoot everywhere. Blessed be the children who love to run carefree and barefoot. They have no worries or cares. They are free when they are barefoot , running to and fro. Blessed be the children who run barefoot without a care. I would love to be that child running barefoot without a care but I am always worried with these heavy shoes of life. Blessed be the children who run barefoot I pray they don't put on the heavy shoes of life to soon because when they do there will be no more running barefoot. So run barefoot as long as you can don't rush growing up, just run barefoot as long as you can.
