Anyone who knows me knows that I have been stressed out beyond belief lately. I have been trying to avoid my stress, and just keep moving. Well, when your car breaks down, it’s not really possible to just keep moving.
As luck would have it, I heard a “pop” when I dropped my oldest son off at school yesterday morning, followed shortly afterward by an awful screeching noise, and then my car went from fully mobile to darn near impossible to drive. Yay me.
I have always been really lucky when it comes to car troubles… If I have any, I call my brother and he gets me back going as quickly as possible. As luck would again have it, my brother was busier yesterday than he’s been in a long time, so when I called, I was told to wait. So I waited.
The most amazing thing happened yesterday… Instead of getting stressed out and crying about everything, I just waited and relaxed and decided something… Everything that is happening lately is out of my hands anyhow, so why keep stressing? I am choosing to wait and trust. I am going to trust in God for a positive outcome, just like I trusted my brother to come to my rescue yesterday.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.- Psalms 91:11
That verse, that one piece of scripture, is what I am keeping close to my heart. No matter what troubles me these days, I am just remembering that God will always protect me… and give me a timeout when I need to breathe and remember that He will always take care of me.
