Wow! Week 41 already. Hopefully these verses have helped you find more joy and peace as you see how God is working in your life. I have been feeling especially peaceful the past week, not sure why. I keep telling myself to trust the feeling and don’t be convinced that the other shoe is going to drop.
So here is this week’s verse. It is a verse I’ve focused on before and need to focus on again as what thought was an anthill is now a mountain.

Want to everyone to hold hands and sing Kumbaya? Then we need to seek God with all our heart. It is my prayer that you will join me in seeking and finding this week.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Well it’s week 7 of the series and we are faced with a tough verse to live out. God’s power, wisdom and goodness far exceed the same qualities in humans. That is why we should lean on God for direction and guidance in our lives.
Even in grief and career transition you must lean on the Lord. I know easier said than done. It’s been eight years since my initial layoff which occurred one year after Joe’s passing and my career is still in the limping stage. I have yet to land a job that pays the bills.
I will explain more in another post this week as this pertains to my career.
Sorry for no pretty picture this week, but Frontier Internet, PicMonkey, and my computer are in a conspiracy against me. It should only take a few minutes to create a graphic but I started several hours ago and am no closer to creating a graphic than when I started.
Have a joy filled week and my your internet and computer work wonderfully together.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Today’s Weekend Wisdom was placed on my heart by God a couple months ago. The verse keeps coming back to me as my life keeps turning upside down every day.
Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid.
Why will my heart not be afraid?
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.

“Do the kind of things that comes from the heart. When you do, you won’t be dissatisfied, you won’t be envious, you won’t be longing for somebody else’s things”
He did it with all his heart, and prospered.
