Refreshment

I subscribe to the K-LOVE Encouraging Word of the day, so every morning I have a verse in my inbox that is supposed to be uplifting. A lot of times they are. Sometimes not so much. Occasionally, I even feel like it’s a special message from God just to encourage me. This morning was one of those last ones.

The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. (Isaiah 58:11a, NLT)

God,

I’ve felt so weary for so long. I have had so much stuff that just seems to be eating away at my peace. This morning, I got yet another notice that life wasn’t going to be working out the way I had planned. Now I have a choice: I can get all upset and sad and scared, like I usually do. Or I can recognize that this is an opportunity for You to display Your grace. I can trust in Your provision for our family. I can recognize that–even if You don’t provide the way I hope You might–You will provide for all our needs. Somehow.

And, if I keep that in mind, I can remember I don’t have to worry about it. I don’t have to come up with some grand scheme to make life work out. I can rest and just trust You will make it all okay.
