via Daily Prompt: Irrelevant
This is one of those posts where I have to give thought to how this word can be a fire starter in my mind. We all strive to keep our selves, souls and spirit out of the path of being called irrelevant. The dictionary writes that the word means “Not pertinent or to the point.” When I find that I have let issues invade my purpose and position, I feel irrelevant. When I think of how easy it is to get off track, I ask for restoration and relevance to reclaim my position, peace and joy.
Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.
Deuteronomy 7:9 NLT
via Daily Prompt: Sympathy
I am at the close of this September day. My family and friends have been very kind to call to offer sympathy because this is my GirlMic’s date of birth. She died two years ago on September 1, 2015 and they have called to encourage me and share pictures of the beautiful life she lived for fifty one years. I know offering sympathy is one of those times in life where words are never enough so I share this family picture to offer my sympathy to the many people who will find themselves sitting on the front pew.

I find myself looking for words in the Word that will bless me to overcome situations that seem to box my soul and spirit in a tight fitting place. I have found that when I surround my setting with meaningful and positive devotionals and books , I do overcome episodes of extreme sadness and hopelessness with skies filled with joy. The scripture which I find best conveys my delight and desires is one that I copied to my last devotional. I read these words for joy to overcome:
Psalm 128:1 “Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways”
