Do you ever have one of those days you just feel ...blah? I know you do, we all do...
Going about my morning I have been questioning this blah feeling inside myself
I could not put a finger on what is going on making me feel this way
nothing "bad" is going on in my life, actully a lot of good is
so why the blah??

I turned my music on as I fixed my pot roast for this evening listening to a few of my favorite songs..
the Avett Brothers  True Sadness started playing and I have listened to it over and over thinking "yes yes yes, this is what I feel today"

these lyrics spoke to me today

I cannot go on with this evil inside me
I step out my front door and I feel it surround me
Just know the kingdom of God is within you
Even though the battle is bound to continue

'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers
And you will find
True sadness

our world is full of saddness, evil and injustice these days
we are touched daily by happenings around us
yet even when life is "good" at home, that lost world out there can still affect us
as it has affected me today
my saddness comes from lost souls around me
as well as the sin inside myself

"take time to peel a few layers and you will find true sadness"

Only Christ can penetrate the sadness in our world and our souls
therefore I am saddened for myself when I don't take refuge in Him
and for those who don't know him

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, that surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus

John 14:1-4
" Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going."
