How are you this week? Serving the Lord with gladness or struggling to survive the storm you are in?
Take encouragement from Mark 4:35-41, which is what I read this morning. Though it may appear we are alone in the storm or just uncertain why God is allowing this storm to be present--be hopeful! God has not left us alone. He is behind all the details of the storm and for His perfect reasons, He is allowing it in your life. He could stop it at any time but part of His plan and your refining is that you walk through it. Keep your eyes on Him-the author of life and ruler of the storm. When we look at how big our God is it makes the storm seem so much smaller.
"I have decided that this act of mothering is my worship to Him right now.
Dying to self and delighting in them.
There is failure and yes, it is messy and sloppy sometimes.
Yet forgiveness and grace and growing."
