But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever. Psalm 52:8
How will you respond to what life throws at you?
When stress stares you in the face, how will you behave?
Unable to breathe?
If that’s your response, your body will respond in fear.
You will lash out in anger.
At the very least, your mood will be in the toilet.
You will think everything is impossible.
Calm within the storm.
You can choose to dwell on the promises of God or not.
If you do, God will be with you in the midst of the smallest infraction.
Or the giant storms, too.
And when He’s with you, He gives you unbelievable peace.
Life might be in a whirlwind, but you can stand without falling in the center, because God is there with you.
At the end of this week, my beloved and I are marrying.
God has blessed us with each other.
Along with these amazing weeks comes work.
Lots of work.
Packing and moving.
Combining and organizing our new home.
Children and their sweet needs.
Start of school.
Putting together my classroom.
Normal family stuff like meals.
(how bout cereal for dinner?)
Brain space becomes extremely limited with the to do list.
Small tasks look enormous.
But God is in control.
He is fully able to cross every t and dot every i for me.
I just have to ask.
So do you.
Let Him take your worries, big or small.
He’ll take care of them as He walks beside you.
And focus on your blessings.
The incredible moments God brings to you as He fills your heart’s desire.
And joy will be your companion as you walk down the path of life God has for you.
