peace, fix, stay...

my face is shining upon you, beaming out peace that transends all understanding.
you are surrounded by a sea of problems, but you are face to face with me, your peace.
as long as you focus on me, you are safe. if you gaze to long at the myriad of problems
around you, you will sink under the weight of your burdens.
when you start to sink, simply call out, "help me Jesus!" and i will lift you up!
the closer you live to me, the safer you are. circumstances around you are undulating,
and there are treacherous-looking waves in the distance. fix your eyes on me, the one
who never changes. by the time those waves reach you, they will have shrunk to
proportions of my design. i am always beside you, helping you face todays waves.
the future is a phantom, seeking to spook you. laugh at the future. stay close to me
"and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus." phil 4:7
"but when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink,
cried out, “Lord, save me!” matt 14:30
"fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before
him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right
hand of the throne of God." heb 12:2

My daughter had a palate widening like Ben's, complete with the little "key" think to put in the cranker. It was crazy how much it changed the shape of her face. I'm so glad Ben is able to get his teeth aligned. He needs those chompers to last a long time!
