Into His Hands

Bread in the oven,

dog’s asleep nearby.

The parrot’s singing in the livingroom

in a cage by a sunny window.

The house is otherwise quiet,

the family’s safe,

the weather mild,

all is at peace.

Tomorrow’s worries have no place here.

Easily Shaken?

August 22, 2012

These are tough times.  I can’t think of a soul in my life who doesn’t feel “it” and know what I mean.  While perhaps there are always “big” issues to be dealt with, these times seem to provide MANY and all at once.  Coping, maintaining a positive attitude, knowing what to do, knowing where to turn . . . is not always simple.  What’s the answer?  For me, it’s to try to stay in step with the Lord.  He is with me in the present.  If I turn  back, I am likely to stumble, and racing ahead isn’t any better, really.  Rushing through things is seldom the most effective approach and often results in a failed effort followed by a “do-over.”  There is an answer though:

“I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” Psalm 16:8 NIV
