Blake announced to his mother that Monday was his last day of school. He no longer wants to go. She asked him to elaborate. He asked her if she remembered him telling her he missed her during nap time the first week? She said she remembered and then he said, “I don’t want to miss you again”. They had a great time spending 4 days at Iron Mountain CMA Campground. Out of his usual routine he wasn’t sure he wanted to return to the daily grind.
Again on Tuesday he reminded her that he was finished with school. Nap time bothers him. He says that’s when he misses her the most. I told his mother that it was probably because it got quiet. In the rush of playing, working and eating, there’s no time to think about missing his mother or any other problems he has.
We’re like that aren’t we? We have issues. So we get busy. There, like sweeping dirt under the rug, it’s gone again. We have a problem so we get busier. We’re reminded of hurts, so we try our best to avoid that hurtful thought. That mound of dirt underneath the rug of our lives gets larger and larger until we can long longer stuff it down, or beat it away. But in the quiet we are forced to review the things that bother us.
Oh beloved, God is speaking into your life this morning and He says Don’t fear the past, the troubles, those things which disappoint, discourage or depress you – I have gone with you. Don’t fear the present, I am now with you and I will stay with you. There’s no need to fear what’s yet to come for I have gone ahead of you to give you hope and a future. I AM your spiritual antidote for what ails your heart. I care more about your heart condition than you can imagine and I will heal it for you!
Run to the Lord this morning and open His Book of Healing! Remember always that this amazing book, written by the hand of the One Who loves you and put the stars in orbit, contains everything you need for your past, for your present and for your future!

It’s time to let the Lord have every problem and move on with Him as He gives you His ministry of reconciliation as He reconciles you to Him.
