In the Middle of the Storm
I'm in the middle of one of the most hectic stretches that I can remember. It's a season of a lot of change and transition....3 teens starting a new school, 1 son heading to another state for college, my husband adjusting to a new job, my family attempting to find a church, and etc. If I am honest, there are days when I can have a lot of anxiety. And I can imagine that many of you are in a challenging season or even a storm. This life can be difficult at times and these three things are helping me to walk above my circumstances.
1. God help us to keep proclaiming our dependence on You each day. We need Your strength, Your guidance, Your help and Your support.
2. God help us to keep shaping our worries and fears into prayers and help us to keep placing them into Your skilled & loving hands.
3. God help us to keep counting thanks each day and to keep looking for gifts You have placed in our days, even our hard ones.
God, we offer up praise and thanks today. Thank You that You are with us and for us. You are always working and orchestrating, even when we can't see it. You have plans and purposes for every season. You are entirely faithful, completely trustworthy, and so much more. Amen.
