Is Anything Troubling You Today?

singing-a-song We are picking up Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing! again for reading after dinner-time in the Molesky household. From tonight's reading, a word I really needed to hear:


When you open the windows, do you have

to beg the fresh air to come in? Or when

you open the curtains in the morning, do

you have to argue with the sun to make it

shine into your room? How silly! You just

open the windows and the air flows in. You

open the curtains and the sun shines in.


The Bible says it's like that with God's peace.

It will flow into our hearts, if we let it.


Are you worried? Are you anxious?

Is anything troubling you today?


Don't try to work it all out by yourself.

Let God's peace flow in - like sunshine into

a dark room.

"Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts." Colossians 3:15 (NLT)
