Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

I DON’T WANT TO EAT THOSE EGGS
In my most miserable eight
year old voice, I whined, “I don’t want to eat those eggs.”
My cousin Walt who lived with
us sat next to me at the breakfast table and said, “Why don’t you want those
I replied, “They are runny
and I only like the yolk broke and then fried hard.”
He laughed and grabbed a fork
and a pat of butter and began to mash my eggs.“Here,” he said, “This is how you fix eggs that are too soft and make
them taste so good.”
Walt usually teased me to
tears, and this was the nicest thing he had ever done for me.
In life there are times when
we are not pleased with the situation we find ourselves in, but there is a fix
if you pray and patiently wait for it.
Psalms 27:5 For
in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret
of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
Remember Joseph whose
brothers tried to kill, but instead they sold him as a slave into Egypt.Years later Joseph reminded his brothers that
the evil they meant against him had turned out for the best and he was able to
save the lives of many people.
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good,
to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Consider Jesus who
died on the cross for our sins. The disciples believed all was lost.
The devil thought
he had won by killing Jesus, but in three days Jesus rose from the dead and old
Satan was the looser. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, eternal life
was purchased for us.
We hurt in our
bodies, our finances, our relationships and think what a mess, and question if even
God can help?
Understand and believe
that Jesus knows how to restore, deliver and bring about a change for the
better.Call upon Him and then trust
that He is working on your behalf.
So next time your
eggs are runny, just know that God can make all things work together for good
to those who love and serve Him.
