Every day, challenging things happen to each of us, wherever in the world we are. The extra flight attendant is a no-show, so now we are delayed waiting for a reserve to be called out. The emails are down, so now we cannot communicate in a timely fashion. A loved one is ill, and our thoughts are with this dear one.
Every time, there is opportunity to pray to God for His resolution to be accomplished through each of us. Here we see the partial crew going out to breakfast together and one of them says grace before the meal…here is a good time to make phone calls and say, “God bless you” at the end of the call…here is a time to praise God that He will provide devoted doctors to help heal our ill friend or co-worker.
Every chance we have to bring our cares to the Lord and leave them with Him to will and to act will honor Him and point others to Jesus as Lord of our lives. From a human perspective, these are real problems, yet for Christians, we see an opening to be His light in the darkness. Join us, looking to Him, in every moment. (JMA) Consider: “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:6).
