If God is all you have, you have all you need. John 14:8
Praise God it’s Sunday!
Ever feel like you have everything planned out, and suddenly a monkey wrench is thrown in and everything is a mess? Me too. In the middle of a family dinner last night, our washing machine went kaput. This wasn’t something we were expecting. This particular model was only a few years old, but apparently is now on back order at our local store until August. Funny today, but last night I felt my heart racing and I could hardly breathe. You know that feeling like you are suffocating. So, with God’s help we finished our family dinner. The highlight for me was at the end of the evening my sweet grandson, hugging me limp and trusting as I carried him to the door, shook his head because he didn’t want to go home. Walking him to the car he turned around and said “I love you BeBaws” and kissed me. In the scheme of things that washing machine is not that big of deal.
The truth is there are more troubles in my life than the washing machine. Like with you, some are heart breaking. That washing machine was just the icing on the cake, so to speak. In times of trouble, regardless of the type, take a breather and notice all God’s blessings. If you will have faith and seek him out, he is always there. Sometimes I look back on my life and wonder how I survived, but down deep I know he was with me all the time. Praise God! God bless you.
