Fruits of the Spirit Friday: Silly Songs for Self Control???

Posted by on Mar 28, 2014 in Fruits of the Spirit Friday

I know you have probably heard the phrase before “music soothes the savage beast.” There really aren’t any savage beasts living in my house but I do struggle daily with the “beast” of temptation of letting stress get the best of me and losing my temper. So rather than have everyday stressing me out, I start singing. The sillier the better.

Sometimes they are Veggie Tales silly songs, sometimes they are songs I’ve made up, sometimes they are real songs I just change the words to. I’ve got songs for dishes, songs for naughty dogs, songs for laundry. Okay so now that I’m writing it out it does sound a little crazy. But having a silly song is what prevents me from being crazy. They are what helps keep me sane during the stressful day and they keep me happy when I would otherwise be stressed out and grumpy. These songs allow me to have the self control I need. It is one of the fruits of the spirit in my life. And with self control of this nature, I’ve also experience joy, peace, patience and more. So each day I thank God for my silly songs.

May you be blessed today and always.

Thankfulness Thursday: The right people at JUST the right time

Posted by on Mar 27, 2014 in Thankfulness Thursday

Have you ever noticed how God always seems to put the right people in the right place at the right time? Has a stranger ever smiled at you when you were having a bad day and it lifted your spirits? Did a friend just happen to stop by or call you when you needed them the most? Have you ever been encouraged by someone you never even met? Those are not coincidences. That’s God intervening.

Trials & Triumphs Tuesday: Solomon 10:9

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in Daily Bible Verse Images, Tuesday's Trials & Triumphs

Song of Solomon 10:9 (CEB) says:

But wisdom rescues her servants from their trials.

When I find a verse that is helpful to me or “speaks” to me in some way like this one, I like to look it up in other translations as well. Makes me very glad that I have the Bible app. 🙂 Well, when I tried to look up this verse in other versions, it did not exist. I have never had that happen before, but I just recently started looking at the Common English Bible.
