Tough Times

One of the hardest things to do is step back and trust God to take care of things without our personal involvement. I have had to learn this over and over. Each time He patiently teaches me this lesson. I’m sure every time I revisit it, the Good Lord is up there shaking his head saying, “Okay. If you need to learn this again then here we go.”

As I am watching everything that is happening in this country, it is hard not to put my two cents worth in. Then I think, “Why do I need to do that? Does anyone really care about my thoughts or opinions?” Nope. Folks are often to busy worrying about their own thoughts and opinions. So I have to consciously sit back and say, “I know you’ve got this Lord.”

It is hard though. Especially when I see my kids suffering because of bad decisions on someone else’s part. Again, I have to consciously sit back and say, “I know you’ve got this Lord.”

Recently, I have had two people that I am fond of get Covid. One has ended up in the hospital. I find myself gritting my teeth and saying, “You got this Lord?” His response. I get a text from my brother;

“Hey, Sis! Whatcha doing Columbus day weekend?”

“I don’t know. Why?”

Then my brother proceeds to tell me that he is going to be ordained as a pastor that Sunday and that as his first pastoral act he would like to full fill his promise of baptizing my youngest daughter.

Yup. I’m pretty sure God’s got this despite all the craziness that surrounds us right now.

Thank you, Lord.
