Jesus Feels Just Fine

I feel tired. Not complaining, just saying. And I have a suspicion (just a little one) that I am not the only one!

I once heard a mature, wise woman say, “No matter how I feel, Jesus feels just fine!”

I have adopted that saying myself, so if you ask me, “How are you?” and I answer, “Jesus feels just fine,” you will know that maybe the day—or the week—has been a little rough. But, and it’s a big but, I am trusting that all is well because my hope is not in myself, my abilities, or my energy—it is in Jesus. And He has it all under control.

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)

How do you feel today, Mom?

Perspective Matters

Recently my grandson Fitz exploded into tears because his mother asked him to hold his brother’s hand for a photo. He did not want to hold his brother’s hand! A young granddaughter “pitched a fit” because an older sibling looked at her in the wrong way. A touch and a look equaled tragedy for these Continue »

Confronting the Comparison Trap

“She always gets to go first. You never let me…” “He has this new Xbox game. Why won’t you get it for me?” “Everyone else gets to go see that movie; why can’t I?” “He’s always the star and I’m usually on the bench.” Sound familiar? Ever since Adam and Eve, we’ve always wanted what Continue »
