A rant & a prayer ....a must read

The past several weeks I've just gotten down right irritated when I scroll through my news feed on Facebook.  There's very few positives there.  What has happened?  I know I don't have to scroll Facebook & I don't that much anymore for that simple reason.  I very rarely watch the news anymore either.  I can't remember the last time I heard anything positive on it.

Now I will be the first to admit my attitude often times isn't the best.  God and I, well we've been working on it.  And here's what we've come up with.  

There's so much uncertainty in our world and nation right now.  Folks seem to be on edge and offended at every turn.  It's irritating. 
Psalm 62:8  "Trust in him at all times O people; pour your hearts to him, for God is our refuge."

Lord may we trust in you at all times.  Even on those days when it is the hardest.  And why shouldn't we pour our hearts out to you?  You alone know the plans you have for us.  Plans to prosper us and not harm us.  If we can't trust you then who?  Your love is so vast we can't comprehend it.  So in all the uncertainty of this world may we rest in the peace and in the fact that you do love us.  That we can trust you at all times.  In all things.  Big and small. May we be reminded that you are still on your throne and you are still in control.  You still work miracles and no one can take any of that away.
Thanksgiving is less than a week away.  May we focus more on you and not all the negative.  May we be quick to realize the blessings that you have poured out that we don't deserve.  
May we be the person that you want us to be.  Not what the world wants.  Not what we want.  But what you want.  I want to be the kind that doesn't hide my light under a bush.  That when I encounter people they want some of what I have and that's you.  It's all about you.
