- To be given time to rest at a time I was ready to melt
- To find peace, joy, and contentment in a new way when you are dependant on others for your needs
- To depend on those around you to help you at times. There is a humility in this when your the one used to making everything better for them
I fell the night before I was supposed to go away for a writer’s weekend. I was worried the enemy was going to steal the opportunity to grow in my writing… but with many prayers, I still made it!
There were many sweet mama hearts ready to help me get around. There was even a bed in the conference room for me to prop my foot up while being a part of the conversation. I know we were staying at a local Christian camp but seriously, a bed in a conference room? Only God can do this. This was my view for the entire weekend!
Trusting in the storm
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:1-5
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your beauty in the hard moments. Help me to trust you in the midst of the storm today. What can I do with this moment to be used for your glory? I will choose to worship and trust you today even though I feel afraid. I will claim your victory promises over my life because you promised me good things in your word. Today I choose to stay steadfast in your loving arms for they are enough for today. Thank you, Jesus, for setting me free in the storm. In Jesus name Amen.
