“Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.” Psalm 16:5
Some weeks are just more difficult than others. Don’t you agree? This week one of my dearest friends packed up and went to live with Jesus. She went to bed feeling better than she had felt in years, with plans to go shopping the next morning. Instead, she woke up and met Jesus.
What manner of craziness is that? Bonelle, “Bo” to her friends, was one of the most loving, loyal, and laughter filled people I know. She was passionate about everyone and everything she loved. She left a gaping hole in the hearts of her fella, two sons, momma, sister, brother, and a host of other family and friends.
The unknown and uncontrollable can leave us with anxiety. I’ve felt that this week. Our daughter is traveling out of the country, and left the very next day after Bo’s death. This momma’s heart was on high alert. Separation anxiety began to overtake me. I wanted all my little chicks close by – where I could touch and see them. You know, where I could control the situation. Make sure that nothing bad happened.
I have had to remind myself many times this week that God is the one truly in control. That I can trust Him. I can trust Him with all that is mine.
Lord, thank you for comforting us when fear overwhelms our hearts. Thank you for meeting us where we are. Our weakness is the opportunity for your strength. In Jesus’ name, amen.
