Sweet Tender Jesus,when We are stressed.

Each Christmas Season I try to keep My mind and heart light.I try to banish from My thoughts all unhappy family entanglements and happenings.Yes, this season does bring Me a lot of stress under the merriment.I have to force Myself each day to stop the fretting,to look up and out and keep My mind on Jesus.To sit at His feet and listen to what He says to Me. Sweet loving words He whispers to Me.Reassures Me of His love and reminds Me of My eternal home and how near I am to it.When I am stressed due to family matters, He is at His sweetest,most tender and understanding.Memories of growing up in a warm family where I know now as an adult, there were stressful times for My parents,I was blissful during Christmas.The memories of Christmases spent raising My four little daughters,makes Me miss those Years also.I love now at this age,looking up and out at the face I will be spending My future with, My beloved Jesus....come soon Baby Jesus. My one hope and prayer is that not one of My descendants will be left behind.If You are reading this I pray the same for You. 

A peaceful Christmas for Us all. God Bless-Denise

Hi, Denise! Here's my declaration for today: STRESS NOT ALLOWED IN THE NAME OF JESUS! Getting beyond the circumstances and consciously, conscientiously giving all your cares to Him is the only solution. No, it won't solve the drama; that's up to the individuals involved, but it does keep you. I know you know these things, dear sister. Sometimes, though, we need to remind ourselves. (Notice I said "we.") Love you. Rest.

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
