"Sometimes I feel..."
(by Bob Perks)

Sometimes I feel that the world is too much.  God reminds me that I am a part of His world and He has much to offer.
 
Sometimes I feel, that as hard as I try I am nowhere near where I wanted to be at this point in my life.  God reminds me that the journey may be long but it will be worth it and I am right where He wants me to be.
 
Sometimes I feel that there is too much for me to do.  God reminds me that I am not doing it alone.  Take each step wisely and put things in perspective.
 
Sometimes I feel that there are too many mountains to climb.  God reminds me that He made the mountains so that when we reach the top we are closer to Heaven, we can see where we've been and the beauty of where we are going.
 
Sometimes I feel that when I am excited about life no one else around me is.  God reminds me that is why He placed me there to bring excitement to those whose lives are weary.
 
Sometimes I feel like God doesn't hear me.  God reminds me that He does indeed listen and respond.  It is I who blocks out His Voice when I don't like what He is saying.
 
Sometimes I feel that no one understands me.
God reminds me that He understands and that's all that matters.
 
Sometimes I feel that the world is closing in on me.  God reminds me that he is there even in the smallest spaces.
 
Sometimes I feel I am failing,  God reminds me with Him I cannot fail.  Delays and denials are not failures.  There are more choices, better ways to get me to where He wants me to be.
 
Sometimes I feel at peace.  God reminds me:
 
Galatians 6:16 - New Life Version (NLV)
 
16 Those who follow this way will have God's peace and loving-kindness. They are the people of God.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
************************
(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-181 Section-1)
The peace of Jesus is the joy and satisfaction of a God-knowing individual who has achieved the triumph of learning fully how to do the will of God while living the mortal life in the flesh.
….
        The peace of Jesus is, then, the peace and assurance of a son who fully believes that his career for time and eternity is safely and wholly in the care and keeping of an all-wise, all-loving, and all-powerful spirit Father. And this is, indeed, a peace which passes the understanding of mortal mind, but which can be enjoyed to the full by the believing human heart.

The Prayer
***********
Dear God,        
        What is Your Will for me? Help me to live it, please.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
