Is it just me, or does it seem like this day has had a grey cloud fixed overhead on what I know has been a beautiful sunny day in Houston, anyway? It’s that feeling of being so hopeful and set on something different just over the horizon then having the wind sucked from your sails the next moment. It stinks. One silver lining is that I know I am not alone in this feeling today.
As age and wisdom seem to run parallel these days, I know that I have learned many a lessons about being selective with my words and outward emotions in the eye of defeat. It still stinks. I know the even bigger silver lining lies in the truth that comes from our Father in Heaven.
As it was so beautifully pointed out to me today in the book of John 16:33 as it says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Thank you, Lord for being our hope in times of fear, worry, and days of looming dark clouds. There is so much to be thankful for. Your Word is the medicine this world is looking for.
In His grip,
