Not much more needs to be said right here.
But give me enough time, and I’ll find more to say ;P
I had to chuckle when I looked over at my dog utterly enthralled at his moment of relaxation.
I ruefully asked him, “don’t you even care about what’s going on in the world? How can you lie there like that?!”
In response, he blinked slowly and continued to enjoy his moment.
When news started breaking about what was to envelop our world in the following days, I found myself lying in bed with thoughts of “what if” fluttering through my head. But then I saw my dog lying there in complete trust, I couldn’t help but think of the advice Jesus would have for us in the middle of all this. He was talking about birds – I somehow think He may also have been thinking of lazy dogs.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:26-27
So I carry this image with me today, (#goals) and I pray that God will give us all the heart of trust in HIM to rest in the storm. And as I go to bed tonight, I will claim wholeheartedly His promises that are etched throughout Scripture!
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8
