Hey, everyone!

What an awesome day today’s gonna be! You can KNOW that no matter what you go through today, God’s there for you! Here’s how you can be sure of it…

Acts 14. 17 says, “…God has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven, he provides you with plenty of food and…and fills your hearts with joy."

Did you get that? You can know He’s there for you because He sends “rain from heaven”! It’s a testimony to His love and faithfulness! 

Listen to this awesome forecast…

“More showers are likely today...Mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers developing from late morning through mid-afternoon as a frontal boundary approaches.  A few spotty showers are still possible Friday evening

It’s gonna be an awesome day!

And if you’re not having an awesome day…

if it’s just a tough one…

if you’re struggling to get through it…

if you feel weighed down with more than you can deal with…

why not stop right now, right where you are, and take these simple steps…

Step 1) Take a deep breath…

Step 2) Read these words: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you!!” (1 Pet 5.6-7)

Step 3) Read them again…

Step 4) And again…

Step 5) One more time…with feeling!

Step 6) Try to figure out specifically what it is that is weighing on you, bothering you, worrying you…I have several, personally, top-of-the-list being a daughter in Africa trying to get their boys home…

Step 7) Do what Peter says! Cast that trouble, anxiety, bother, problem, whatever… on Him! “Cast” is the same word translated “throw upon” in Luke 19.35…When Jesus was almost to Jerusalem, and got ready to ride a donkey into town, ”they threw their cloaks on the colt”…

Whatever is bothering you…throw it on Him! Say to Him, “Here it is. I don’t know what to do about it. I can’t solve it, resolve it, fix it, or make it go away. I’m giving this problem to You. You take it!”

Seven easy steps to a more awesomer (“awesomer”?) day! Aren’t you glad you get your weekly Triple C email?

While we’re on the subject…

I was reading this book where this dude wrote that he himself was also reading a book. The book he was reading was on prayer. The book he was writing that I was reading…in which he talked about this book he was reading…was also about prayer. (Man! That got complicated in a hurry!) Anyhooo…

He said that in this book he was reading, the author said that you shouldn’t pray about trivial things like parking places, as in, “God, give me a parking space.”

He told this to his mom, who after raising five kids, went to be a missionary in the slums of Uganda and Dublin, and who at 82, was living in London, reaching out to South Asian women, still a full-time missionary. 

He shared this author’s feeling about trivial prayers… Her answer? 

“How you supposed to find a parking place?”
