Rockin' and rollin'

We got a letter in the mail this week that rocked our world. We were shocked. We were shaken. This was a situation we couldn't fix. God was going to have to show up - in a big way.

As the shock wore off and we were able to see a bit more clearly, we realized that while we may have been reeling, God was not a bit surprised. He saw it coming long ago. He has a plan that will turn out for our good and His glory (Jeremiah 29:11). Granted, He hasn't shown us yet what that plan entails, but He will...in His time.

Clinging to the hope of Philippians, we are doing our best to be anxious for nothing, but to continue in prayer. I feel the Lord is asking us to focus not on what needs to happen- He already knows that, but on praising Him for what He's going to do.

I've come a long way from the control freak I use to be. I'm learning to let go. Finding myself in situations such as this forces me to choose. Will I trust or will I worry? I can't fix it, so why worry? Today I will praise Him for what He's going to do, then sit back and wait for Him to show Himself - big time!

Our world may be rocking, but we're clinging to the One who can calm any storm.


  1. You really are an inspiration. I would be blogging about how bad my life is and how could something this bad happen to me...you just turn everything into positive thoughts. Love ya for that! Makes for much better reading! I hope everything turns out for you.

  2. Sounds like you are up against a big challenge...I'll be praying for you!

  3. Amazing post. We recently got news that rocked us to the core, but there is peace in knowing that while we were surprised God was not and he does have it all worked out.

  4. Good stuff!! We all need to be holding on from the smallest to the shocking. Praying for a God glorifying outcome!

  5. I'm learning every day to let go and let God. It's a cute phrase to say, but hard to do. I'm praying that you feel His peace when you need it most.

  6. "We are hard-pressed from every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed..." II Cor. 4:9

    Keep fixing your eyes on Jesus! I'm praying for you!

    Grace and Peace,
