Here are some new pics of the family. We had a little staycation in Cambridge, MD during my friend’s wedding. The other little fella in the pictures is my nephew.
However, before you gaze at the pics, here is a quick Word from the Lord. I, like many others, am going through a rather tumultuous time in my life – grief, shut doors, rejection, struggle and major life transitions. Of course, I’m praying every day for the Lord to do something about it! In response, the Lord showed me my daughter and how she cries sometimes in her car seat while I’m driving. My daughter gets very anxious on long trips and cries because she wants to get out. Sometimes, I don’t even respond to her cries because I know I cannot remove her from the car seat while we are driving. If I remove her from the seat, I will put her in danger. She has to stay in the car seat while I’m driving even though she’s uncomfortable, tired and anxious. It doesn’t mean I don’t love her. I’m doing what’s best for her.
“So that the genuineness of your faith—being more precious than gold that, though perishable, is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed” 1 Peter 1:7 (NRSV).
The Lord wants you and me to know that we may be in a very uncomfortable and unsettling position in our lives right now. However, if He removes us from the situation too soon, there could be negative consequences. It could be detrimental to our spiritual lives or even destructive. Even though we are crying out and it seems like He’s not responding, He hears us. He will remove us in due time when we arrive at the spiritual destination He is taking us to. He’s working on some things concerning us, and it’s working for our good! This encourages me. I hope it encourages you. Hold on!
Enjoy the pics!
