Defeat Anxiety

In Touch Ministries Mar 25, 2013 Daily Reading Breaking Free from Worry Read | Matthew 6:25-34 What is it that you worry about most? Is it your health, your family, or perhaps your finances? Most Christians will claim to believe that the heavenly Father cares for us and His promises are dependable. And yet far too many keep right on worrying. It is important for us to distinguish between worry and legitimate concern. We undoubtedly want to be known as reliable members of society, which involves having a sense of responsibility so that we will carry our load and correct things in need of repair. But worry is more than that—it’s a corrosive poison that eats away at our trust in God. What can we do about anxiety? To start with, we need to be aware of the difference between being a believer in Jesus and being a follower of Jesus. A believer is one who has placed his trust in the Lord for salvation and has received the gift of eternal life. A follower goes beyond that and attempts to know and obey God. Through the Word of God, we as His followers become increasingly knowledgeable about His nature and His care for us. When we become fully convinced that our God is as good and loving as the Bible depicts Him, we will surely avoid the ways of worry. Scripture teaches that God knows all our needs, concerns, and desires but still commands us not to worry. Think about that. Would He ever command something and not enable you to do it? Absolutely not! He wants your trust and—if You allow Him—will prove to you that worry is unnecessary.

Good Food For Your Dog's Tummy!

Doggy Chicken Paw Licks is a nice treat for anyone's dog, especially for those who like for their dogs to have natural food. And, with all the recalled doggy treats in the past year, it is an awesome cheap alternative to store bought treats. Ingredients: 3 Cups of White Flour 3/4 Cup Yellow Cornmeal 1 Cup Chicken Broth 4 tablespoons Softened Margarine (I used REAL BUTTER) 1 Eggs 1 Tablespoon of Milk Bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes Due to Pharroh has a sweet tooth, I melted butter and sugar together and lightly brushed the dog cookies, than brushed it with the egg and milk mixture prior to putting them in the oven (the recipe calls for brushing the mixture of the egg and milk on top only).

AN AWESOME MESSAGE!! Which are you? ~Lillith~ Grandmother Says... Carrots, Eggs, or Coffee; "Which are you?" A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved a new one arose. Her grandmother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water. In the first, she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs and the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil without saying a word. In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, "Tell me what do you see?" "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied. She brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they got soft.She then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled, as she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked. "What's the point,grandmother?" Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity--boiling water--but each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water they had changed the water. "Which are you?" she asked her granddaughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?" Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart? Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hours are the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate to another level? ---AUTHOR UNKNOWN
