Fix it! That’s what you do when you are a wife, mom, grandmother, friend and even a caregiver. You see the problem and you try to get it repaired as soon as possible so it doesn’t linger. Sometimes it isn’t such an easy fix. It becomes very apparent that the issue will need some time and some fervent prayer.
Before rushing in to do my idea of what needs to be done, I have many times heard the Lord say to me “Be still and know I am God.” I have finally learned to listen to that advice (even though it has taken awhile). Once I let God Be God and let him work in my loved one’s lives or in mine, I find everything turns out better. I stopped wasting so much energy on worrying since my Lord had the situation already handled. No, he doesn’t need my help, but he does want my attention and prayerful conversation with him while I wait for the answer.
Next time you are faced with a situation that seems so overwhelming, take a deep breath, pray and wait as he shows you his wonderful plan.
“Be still and know I am God” Psalms 46:10
