Much of my life, I have been bombarded by harrowing thoughts. Sometimes, to the point of torture.
And be it not for CHRIST and taking every one of those invasive and ruminating thoughts captive to HIM; I don’t know where I would be or what I would do.
I don’t nor would I battle alone. I do know that because of JESUS I can and will overcome! And be victorious and blessed!
It was our annual Easter Egg hunt. I do one for the kiddies and one for the adults.
And I plan. And organize. Yet, each year, it seems that something gets mixed up. I forget eggs - I lose them. I confuse adult eggs with the kids eggs. And each year - all those who come laugh, and make the best of it, in spite.
This year- I laughed along with everyone. Yet, inside... I was sad.
Truth-be-told... I have been forgetting things. Mixing things up. Not just Easter preparation but a lot and more often.
Oh, I joke. I push it off to age, and having so much on my plate, along with the excuse of fatigue.
But in all of this, one saving grace rings true.
Yep! Even with all of the annoying noise playing in my head; and the lapses of memory; I still do hear that still small voice busting through. The calm in these storms. My GOD, my GOD!
When I am dizzy and drowning, and trying to remember in the midst of arrows of off-thinking or complete lapse of thought.... John 10:27-29 rings loud..”My sheep recognize my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them real and eternal life. They are protected from the Destroyer for good. No one can steal them from out of my hand.”
And the LORD is MY still small voice when my mind goes blank.
And the LORD is the quiet in the attack of stinking thinking.
So, I am going to be just fine! More than even! Blessed and loved!
And the LORD, HE pulled me out of a dangerous pit, out of the deadly quicksand. HE set me safely on a rock and made me secure. (Ps 40:2).
I. Am. Safe!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
