Just Journaling the Journey
After years of teaching, I know there are ebbs and flows. There are weeks where there is smooth sailing and then there comes the torrential downpour, enormous waves, and behemoth stacks of unending tasks.
To this latter time, I give thought today
For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. – II Peter 2:19
Today I am enslaved to the waves.
They have overwhelmed me.
They have discouraged me.
They have brought me to doubt my abilities in Christ.
They have depressed me.
So, Lord I pray with a humble heart
May I approach today with a flexible spirit.
May I lift my eyes to the one who knows the beginning from the end.
May I trust in His protection and not my view of the storm.
In what ways can you change your view of the storms you may be facing today?
