Busy with the Best of Blogging Intentions

I am having a SUPER packed thoughts are lists are long...then, I broke my tooth (sneaking candy, argh) and had to make extra time to get that fixed.  *sigh*  I must say that I find it a bit ironic...or as I like to say creepy God thang...when both books I'm reading honed in on the same concept and Scripture today.  
So, as I push about heavy thoughts for sick loved ones and heavy to do lists...I get the kids coloring peacefully...I begin making dinner...saying over and over,  
"I am strong for all things in the One who constantly infuses strength into me."  Phil. 4:13
Christ is all-sufficient for every circumstance, for every eventuality and for every possibility. ~Lloyd-Jones
So, no...I haven't fallen off the planet...or the blogosphere...just thinking more thoughts than I'm writing in my spare time...
I collect my first tomatoes...and focus on hearing God say, "Bobbi, let Me be the Blessed Controller.  Surrender.  Accept my timing.  Accept my ways.  Accept my outcome.  Let your trust be in Me alone.  Though no one sees your choices or knows how difficult they are, make them for Me." ~Linda Dillow
Yes, it's been a Philippians 4 focused day.  "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."  If I make the choice to pray instead of worry, I will personally experience God's peace.  What a promise!!
stitch by stitch...promise by promise....prayer by prayer
I am so thankful for God's Word...It says to fix my mind on the positive and take every thought captive (2 Cor. 10:5)...He renews my mind when I take the negative thoughts captive and dwell on the positive. 

So, I'll wrap it up... ending with another gem from Paul's fabulous letter (just for me today)..."

Finally, SISTER, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."

I read Calm My Anxious Heart a number of years ago. I remember it as a good one. Your dinner looks good.

What a good reminder of words and thoughts we should have more often. Really like the quilt. :)

I've had Dillow's book for years but haven't read it yet. I need to do that.

Glad you're finding His grace sufficient during heavy times. "My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word" Psalm 119:28.
