It’s officially Spring. My winter fat is gone and now I have spring rolls!
I realized this week I could accomplish two things at one time. I could eat cake while I walked so I got credit for my steps on my step tracker. How cool is that?!
We find ourselves in a new season in many ways. Who would have thought 3 months ago our world would be turned upside down? I am hearing from people talking about their anxiety being through the roof. People are panicked, fearful, depressed and much more. Many are asking what good can possibly come from this?
As believers, we must stay anchored to God through His Word and prayer. We are in a fierce storm right now no doubt. Think about it this way; there are two ships on the sea.
Ship of death
Never reached its destination
Selfish people – every man for himself at any cost
The Love Boat (some of you will not remember that series)
Ship of excitement
We can choose which boat we want to board. These are no doubt troubled waters we are treading. But we have a Captain that in one breath can speak stillness to the sea.
God is good at being God. We do not have to figure out the whys and what-ifs. We simply need to trust
God and stay anchored to Him. The old saying, “It’s easier said than done” comes to mind. I have found that when I sit quietly in God’s presence and lay my heart open to him; fears, doubts, questions and all, He speaks and gives a peace that cannot be explained.
So, I invite you to sit in His presence today. Pour it all out to Him. He understands. He loves you. He wants to give you the peace that passes all understanding.
This is a new season for us all. But as long as we stay anchored to Christ, not only will we make it through these rough seas, we may just find we have entered the best season yet once we reach shore.
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.” - Isaiah 26:3-4
You will steer where you stare.
Until next week……. Don’t forget to smile (and wash your hands)! Tammy
