WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF BAFFLED!
Have you ever been faced with a situation that left you utterly baffled? In many ways, this past year has left me completely baffled! Has it you?
Ezra 9:3 When I heard this, . . . I sat down utterly shocked. (NLT)
When you find yourself in times like these here’s some things you can do.
- Get in a quiet place. Close out all other noise, voices, distractions and meditate on God’s Word. Remember He says to Be Still and know that HE IS GOD!
BE ALONE WITH GOD
- Open your heart to Him alone. Seek Him and search His Word. There we can find peace and satisfaction for our longing souls. Light overpowers darkness and here I can expect the light of God’s Word to shine into my heart and guide my way.
BE IN HIS WORD
- Don’t hurry, stop, look, and listen, be quiet and still before the Lord as you meditate on The Wonderful Words of Life
BE WRITING AND SHARING
- Then write. Oh so many times, thoughts have come to me while spending time with the Lord, only to forget them all too soon. If I write it down,(get a free Bible Study bookmark here) I have a reference and that very same hour I can go back and read it and meditate on the things that have softened my heart. It is much easier to think about what God has said this way, to meditate on it throughout the day, and to share it with others as opportunity presents itself.
So if you’re baffled during troublesome and trying times,(free printable verses here) Be quiet, Be alone with God, Be in His Word, Be listening, Be meditating, Be writing and Be sharing.
