Jeremiah 21;24; 27; Psalm 118; 1 John 2 (The Message)

Psalm 118: 21-25 Thank you for responding to me;
you've truly become my salvation!
The stone the masons discarded as flawed is now the capstone!
This is God's work.
We rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it!
This is the very day God acted—
let's celebrate and be festive!
Salvation now, God. Salvation now!
Oh yes, God—a free and full life!
26-29 Blessed are you who enter in God's name—
from God's house we bless you!
God is God, he has bathed us in light.
Festoon the shrine with garlands,
hang colored banners above the altar!
You're my God, and I thank you.
O my God, I lift high your praise.
Thank God—he's so good. His love never quits!
1 John 2: 28 And now, children, stay with Christ. Live deeply in Christ. Then we'll be ready for him when he appears, ready to receive him with open arms, with no cause for red-faced guilt or lame excuses when he arrives.

Go back to what you KNOW……Live in what you KNOW……So much I want to slam the door on, cut from the fabric of my life and yet that is all about protecting myself and NOT trusting God….risking everything….that’s been my prayer…..a desire to live on the edge…but still and all I forget who’s in charge……I forget or I want to feel safe in a world where He never promised us safety……? But He does promise we are protected……..
Again this is NOT rocket science but it is definitely HARD……what an amazing God!
So, what's been your prayers lately and how have you seen God work in them?
