It’s Friday. The cold is here. Snow has come. My Judah is glad to be home with his mama. He loves the snow and wants to play but we don’t have a fence or anything yet so it’s hard to not want him to hurry up and get his business done when you’re just standing out there in the freezing weather, which is Matt doing of course since I am still recovering.
It’s been going well. My back is just really sore, and I don’t like to walk without my little pillow because it feels like my insides are going for a ride.
It’s been odd without the kids here as they are with grandparents, and sometimes it’s as if time is standing still. Is this what an empty nest would feel like?
This morning I read a few Proverbs, but I want to read elsewhere, I just don’t know where yet. This blog post is a great example of how I feel. A bit here. A bit there. A bit nowhere.
This is what it felt like as a child, with the whole day before you, no schoolwork due, no curfew–just time. What a gift, though I realize none of us know if we even have the next minute. Maybe that is why it still puts me in wonder. That God chose me to be alive, right now, in this section of time.
This section where so much is changing and trying to change, and yet His Word keeps me rooted in knowing He is the same yesterday, today and forever. This caused me to ask, where are we getting our news from? Who is our source?
The Most High is my source. He is over all.
This is comforting. To know our Creator exists outside of time, and time is His creation. And that all things are working according to how He wants them.
Nothing comes around the corner to shock Him. He just is.
I stopped watching the news about two years ago and don’t miss it. I don’t miss the anxiety it tries to dish out. I know it still tries with the same ol tactics because when I open a fresh browser, they try to get me with some gross headline.
Where is the good news at all?
They won’t offer good news, you have to hunt for it, because it won’t profit them anything. Recently, I watched The Biblical Response to the Great Reset with Charlie Kirk and Jack Hibbs.
To think we live in this time out of all times, is a bit otherwordly. I feel at peace so often, knowing God is in charge, yet the weight of responsibility as a child of His, knowing I know the truth, is at times strong.
I handle this differently than years past though. Not in worry. I have seen God carry us through time and time again when it didn’t make sense. When the numbers didn’t add up. When man and rules said one thing, yet He overrode those very things.
I believe He has continued to show us to depend on Him to build our trust. As much as I am grateful for the things given, I know our care is not in the hands of those things, but from His hands.
He is in every detail. I have story upon story, being down to the last ten dollars and someone gives us a gift card that gets us through the weekend. Little but big things, where no one else knew, yet God knew we were going to need bread.
If you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, give it to the Father. You were not meant to carry all that. Sometimes the biggest battle we face isn’t with the enemy or the world, but ourselves.
We must learn to trust Christ!
The Cure for Anxiety
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?”
Matthew 6:25-27 NASB1995
