The Blues! If you’re into music, then you know that the Blues represent a style of composition and melody dealing with a form of internal distress. That sounds similar to the way people feel in the world today. Bluesy…
It’s easy, in this world of ours, to look around and feel bluesy or …even depressed (the origin for the word depressed is “To press down”). Life can feel troubling.
There can be trouble in our physical world, trouble in our emotional world, trouble in our mental world, trouble in our relationship world, trouble in our financial world, and so on.
Walking in the mindset of the world will guarantee trouble in our hearts. I promise. And so does God.
But Jesus does not want us to live our life here on Earth in the mindset of the world. Jesus does not want us to live our lives in fear. Jesus does not want our hearts to be troubled.
Jesus wants us to walk in the gift that He left for us in order to help us overcome the Bluesy of life.
Jesus said “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”.
We need to receive His gift. He gives it to us daily. Freely! It’s ours. He already gave it to us. We just need to …receive it. Peace.
