Sunshine’s Reflections

Good morning.  Happy Friday to you all!  I enjoyed a great day off with my son during his spring break the other day.   It’s nice to relax and enjoy some down time.  I pray your week is going well.

TFTD: Remember God is Sovereign

Psalm 147:4 (NKJV)

He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.

Psalm 135:5-7 (NKJV)

For I know that the Lord is great, And our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases He does, In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places. He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain; He brings the wind out of His treasuries.

Some days I wake up and feel down or discouraged.  Sometimes I even feel a little overwhelmed and can’t explain or pinpoint why.  Have you ever experienced a day like this?  When I experience days like this it’s hard to stay focused.  I find my mind wandering and sometimes worrying about stuff that I shouldn’t be worrying about.

I’m so glad to have a relationship with God.  Yesterday I was listening to some “soaking music”; this is music that allows you to be immersed in the presence of God.  You just lay back and become consumed with how great God is.  While I was listening to this music I was reminded who God is in my life.  God is Sovereign!  He is in control of every aspect of my life and yours.  Nothing we encounter comes to us without first going through Him. 

God rules over everything!  He is so amazing that He numbers the stars and calls them by name.  Whatever the Lord wants to do in your life, He will do it, just because He is God!  Look at Psalm 135:7  “God causes the vapors to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, He brings the wind out of His treasuries”  I don’t know about you, but I get chills thinking about how great God is. 

So whenever you have a day when you wake up and feel a little down or discouraged take a moment to think about how great God is.  He is Sovereign.  If He can rule over all things in the earth, surely He can rule over the things in your life. 

Have a blessed day.  I’m so glad I serve a Sovereign God!
