Five Minute Friday :: Settle

This is my Five Minute Friday(fmf) blog post. If you’d like to read more fmf blog posts from Kate Motaung and our fmf group click here Five Minute Friday

Settle in the loving arms of our Savior no matter the winds that blow, no matter the storms that rise.

Through financial struggles settle in the arms of Jesus

Through health trials settle in the arms of Jesus

Through feelings of doubt and unrest settle in the arms of Jesus

Through the loss of loved ones settle in the arms of Jesus

Through broken relationships settle in the arms of Jesus

When we settle in the loving arms of Jesus our situations may or may not change but what will happen is a peace that surpasses all understanding.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (ESV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)

The straight paths He makes for us are settling-peaceful-full of grace and love.

Absolutely nothing we go through is wasted. God will bring beauty from the ashes and bring good where there was only heartache.

How do I know this to be true? Because He has proved himself true time and time again through out my life and I am sure He has done so in yours too. You just need to look past the heartache and pain and see Him in the times you felt alone. I know that is hard but it can be done. I know, I know. I was once was lost in anger and resentment and it took a lot of time in God’s word for me to let it go. I know it seems like a tall order but I also know God is able to give me the strength when it’s the desire of my heart to let things go so that I can settle in His peace and rest.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (ESV)

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 (ESV)

  1. I wish that Christ would be on hand,
    because, y’know, I’m gonna die,
    but He assumes I understand
    that He has other fish to fry.
    Nonetheless, He’s left instruction:
    “Carry on, please, in My place,
    and in the seeds of thy destruction,
    find smattering of Father’s grace.”
    Yes, this is a hard commission,
    but I know He’s walked ahead,
    feeling, on the Cross omission
    of care for the blood He’d shed.
    That forsaken feeling, one can’t bear
    unless it’s with the Christ we share.
