Daily Readings — Stop the Spinning!

Day 2166: Blessings on your September Saturday!!!

Scripture: (Jesus speaking)“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

Thoughts/questions: I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane a couple of times. One of the dangers is going into a spin while falling. If you find yourself spinning, you cannot open your chute and stopping the spin is not an easy task for a beginning jumper. A peaceful and safe ride down to earth cannot happen until the spinning stops.

In life we often find ourselves spinning out of control. Jesus promised peace within tribulation, so similar to skydiving, we cannot have God’s promised peace until we stop the spin!

If/when spinning, we can’t complain about the lack of peace while we let our mind spin out of control and remain so busy that God can’t find a place to enter in. STOP, slow down your mind and take your body to a quiet place, let God safely open your comforting chute and be at peace!

Remember, He has overcome the world!!!

Suggested prayer: Lord God, remind me to make room for You each day . . .
