So the journey is long and unsettled and the doubts are large and looming. Fear lurks in the little corners of your world, nipping joy in the bud or maybe aggressively approaches without warning, sideswiping you blindfolded if it fails to hit head on! Yet, here you sit on another day of trying to get it together ~ making decisions and hoping for right ones. Friends are like Job’s friends, probably best if they would remain silent or at least offer some sort of tangible encouragement. It seems like you just dealt with “that” and now “this.” World news is anything but good and your news? well ~ let’s just say you could do with a little bit better deal than what was just dealt! Where on this whole wide earth is life going and where is it taking you?
Beautiful soul, God speaks to you through all the stuff that’s got you! He only allows it to make your beautiful soul more beautiful and more strong and more graced and more faithed and more steady for still ~ the journey ahead. He hasn’t promised it easy but just to be in it with you and guide your way. So those decisions you need to make ~ just ask Him to lead and be obedient to follow! Remember the same God that spoke peace and calmed the wild waters and stilled the pounding sea speaks a sweet, gentle peace into your frightening moments and upheaveled uneasiness to calm and soothe your soul and smooth the trouble! So beautiful you ~ take heart and let God take control of this moment, the next, and the next and the day ahead.
Mark 4: 39
“When Jesus woke up He rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence, be still.” Suddenly the wind stopped and there was a great calm.”
So have faith today in the One who has authority over the wind and the waves and has you and has your stuff and has your back and has you covered. There’s hope there and peace there for those in need.
