Missed me? Gloriadelia has been on fall break. But, I’m back! And, in honor of my college-age daughter, Liz, who loves all things English, and moved out last week, I’m encouraging you to “Unpack your Adjectives” (was that a run-on, Liz? sorry…)
Well, on any given day, these are words that can describe me, depending on the amount of restful sleep, nutritious food, or yummy chocolate I’ve had. And they are: cranky, mean, selfish, angry, out of control.
Now let’s compare my adjectives with God’s. These are the words that ALWAYS describe Him: loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, self-controlled. (Galatians 5:22)
I want to pack up my adjectives and exchange them for His.
We can do that, you know, send our adjectives packing.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
Here’s a song, sung by Fernando Ortega, that I would describe as beautiful, and encouraging…
Maybe it will help you to be cheerful, encouraged, and hopeful. Listen…
If you have a hard time with it stalling, just push the pause button, and come back to it in a bit. It should load up and play straight through then.
