I’m gonna give it to ya straight. I know I’ve blogged on this before, and I’m sure to blog on it again. This is me. In my head. Driving my Yukon. By myself. Because, who helps one drive? Stupid: “by myself.” But, I’m leavin’ it in this post. ‘Cause I’m so see me, love me and all. Rabbit trail, rabbit trail.
Back to inside my head. I’m drivin’ yesterday afternoon. I’m thinking about how much Kris is gone lately. He is a pilot. Did y’all know that? Those pilot people fly airplanes. Away.
Little fears start surfacing.
What if he is gone too much too often? What if our marriage suffers? What if my children suffer? What if there is another snow day, and all of my kids are home ALL DAY AND NIGHT, and I’m the only parental reinforcement around?
As fast as those thoughts went swirling around my head, another voice calmed my stormy mind.
“I will trust You.”
And, that was the next thought that dominated my little head.
When has He ever not proved Himself to me?
You may be allowing thoughts of fear consume your mind right now. Worry. Doubt.
I can throw out the Matthew 6 scripture to you about not worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. But, honestly, that scripture has never helped me with my worry one bit.
I’m just sayin’.
But, I can tell you that God makes good on His promises. I can tell you that He has made good of my ugly finances. He has made good of my messy relationships. He has made good of those times where I distanced myself from Him. He has made good of those moments where I failed as a mother. He has made good of my disappointments. He has made good of my broken heart.
He has made so much in my life good.
So, what if?
I will trust Him.
And, you, my friend, can trust Him, too.
