Weekend Wisdom

Maker of Heaven and Earth

Made By The Maker Of Heaven and Earth (September 2022)

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV)

There are a lot of events that can easily distract you from the things impacting your life – inflation, food prices, and gas prices. I am sure you can think of other things in addition to these issues.

Know what is going on in the world but stay focused on doing the tasks or learning the skills that will improve your life.

As you go through this week and the remaining weeks of the year, keep these verses in mind when life seems overwhelming.

God created the moon and leaves, He will certainly help you too.

God always, always shows up.

31 Days of Joy: Day 28 – This Is Not A Trick But…

it is not a treat either.

I was told today that my seasonal job will be ending on Friday.

This is not unexpected after all I knew it was a seasonal job when I hired on.

Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Nehemiah 8:10

The joy in all this is when I am home, I will NOT be drinking Pepsi in the afternoon. High volume call centers run on caffeine whether it is coffee or pop.

This weekend I will be tweaking my resume, LinkedIn profile and making changes to my blogs.

I have already sent out emails updates to my friends letting them know.

God brought me this job and He will bring me to another one.

        I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

    where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121: 1-2

So stay tuned – November is NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) so you could find 30 days of posts about job searching.       😉

 

 

40 Days of Joy

Strength & Peace

Scripture:

The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace.

Psalm 29:11

This passage seemed appropriate considering I was at the funeral home tonight (for a neighbor, not a relative).

The Lord gives us strength and peace when trouble enters our world – we just need to lift our eyes towards heaven.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2

He has enough strength and peace for everyone.  

My Wish

May you find joy in knowing God has strength and peace to see you through your troubles any time of the year – including Christmas.  

Quote:

 May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;

The spirit of Christmas which is peace;

The heart of Christmas which is love.
