Life is so unpredictable and often the small things get us down. I am very aware that these are all small in the scheme of things, but for a while today I went into meltdown mode. Weeping, feeling sorry for myself, angry at ? I forgot for a moment that we live in this fallen world where bad things happen to good people, where pain keeps us bound to our recliner, where sweet puppies get old and decline, where toilets flood and appliances break. I forgot for a moment that our lives are good because God is good.
God's Word is full of promises to help us through the really tough times and the little things that add up. All we need do is pick up His book, grab hold of a promise or three and hang on. Steady. Predictable. Reliable. God's Word. Never changing.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding............."
