As I’m sitting here at the table this morning, I’m listening to the cheeping sound of around 50-60 baby chicks that are currently in our living room…
It’s a sweet little sound. 🐣
There’s a lot going on in our world right now.
Major things have shifted and changed again.
Things are always changing, of course,
but choices have been made that have unleashed new consequences…
…cause and effect.
I think there are many who haven’t the words right now,
that can express
the heaviness the world is feeling
from all that is happening in our world.
I’ve had trouble finding the words…
But this morning I sat down before the Lord,
and just took a deep breath in,
and a deep sigh out…
And I knew that He heard my heart. 💝
I’m thankful for a Heavenly Father
who knows my heart
even when I haven’t the words to express
even when I’m not able to process just yet…
You see, the thing is…
even with all that is happening in the world
even with all of the things that feel so out of our hands
the truth is,
there is a lot that is in our hands.
There is power in prayer,
is in our hands.
But also, there is this…
I can focus on doing the thing that is before me to do,
I can choose to be present in whatever moment God has given me.
My task at hand
for right now.
Spring is here.
Anxiety wants to keep me from LIVING in my assignments right now, by distracting me with “what ifs”, and paralyzing me in fear.
But I’ll find joy and peace in being in,
and in “living in”
that moment-by-moment with Him.
“God, what’s on Your heart for me to do, right here, right now… in this life that You have created for me to live, and in this moment in time that You have planted me in?”
Thank You, Father. 💝
