Yesterday I was reminded that things don’t always go as planned.
As I was walking out of the house, I discovered that I had locked my keys in my car the night before. I was instantly frustrated! I called R. H. (because he has the second set of keys) so that he could come unlock my car. He had to leave his office and finish his workday from home, while I had to go inside and send Harvey’s sitter home because I wouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon. It took me a while to calm myself down from my frustration, but once I did, I was reminded that in Christ we can find peace even in the midst of our frustration.
I want to encourage you this week to hold on to what Paul tells us in Philippians, to not worry about anything but give everything to Christ. When things don’t go the way you planned or when life seems to overwhelm you, give it to Christ and let His peace wash over you.
