All of us are nervous about our country. Yes, you are, too, just as much as the rest of us!
But if we’re believers in Jesus and His words, we know we don’t have to freak out because “God is in control.” Not sure any of you constantly remember this any better than I do.
Something wonderful I heard at a women’s conference last night and this morning was “Don’t let prison break your praise,” like it didn’t break Paul’s praise even when he was facing death.
Let’s keep up the joy and praise and try HARD not to freak out…….We either believe it or we DON’T:
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21
Just a little story I was told Thursday: Some years ago, a Mom of 2 teenagers was shopping in a book store…she saw a book on praying for one’s children and thought how grateful she was that her girls were fine, upstanding, sweet girls….she didn’t need THAT book. But she bought it. Standing in line feeling a little weird including that book with her others! Less than a week later, one of her daughters told her and her husband something that rocked their world and hasn’t stopped rocking it. SO many stories like this…I could share SO many, but thought this was a great example of one of the millions that show GOD KNOWS. Before WE do. And He’s there for us…not to make it all better, but for us to lean on…in faith, which is all He wants.
Have a great Sunday!
