Murphy’s law on steroids.
Whatever could go wrong today went wrong. From the moment I left the house this morning until I crashed on the couch at days’s end. My soft couch was welcome respite.
I regret to say I was not a nice person today. in the throws of multiple setbacks I lashed out at two ladies. Both, in their respective roles were trying to help me. Both were cheerful and pleasant. I was not.
I chose to complain and become one of those antagonistic clients they practice on in HR customer service training classes.
I sought them both out at the end of our meetings and apologized profusely and earnestly. I resent my negative responses to people who only wanted to serve me. All I wanted to do was argue and register my dissatisfaction and disappointment. All they wanted to do was help me.
By days end I was exhausted and regreted that I responded contrary to my usually pleasant Type A, never-meet-a-stranger self. I needed relief. I needed rest.
I came home and opened my bible and read Mathew 11:28-30 several times. About the third or fourth time I felt His peace wash over me. I was quiet, refreshed and at rest in Jesus.
I’m so grateful that on Murphy’s law days I can always come to Jesus and let Him take away my burdens and my anxiety and give me His peace and I can rest in Him.
Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy-laden,
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and
learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke
is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus was supposed to be perfect, right? Never committed a single sin. Right?
Then why did He break the law? Two in one day. Continue reading

Once we claim Jesus as our Lord and Savior Satan can’t do anything to reclaim us. The victory’s won. We belong to Jesus. God is our father. That will never change. Continue reading
Editor’s Note: Revelations In Writing is fast becoming one of my favorite blogs to read. Shannon E. Moreno is fast becoming one of my favorite blog writers. First and foremost, Shannon and I are on the same page spiritually in our identities in Christ. Secondly, she is a gifted and devoted writer. It is obvious Shannon loves the Lord and allows the Holy Spirit to guide her heart and her writing.
“For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on a promise; but God in His grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.” – Galatians 3:18
If our salvation depends on our following of religious laws, rituals and customs, then it does not come from Jesus, Continue reading
