Kerplunk



And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been calledaccording to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Recently in northern Alabama sink holes developed on I-65 Northbound. Not sure if any cars or trucks wrecked as a result. Can you imagine if you were driving along then 'kerplunk' into the sinkhole you go. Hopefully it would not require an emergency room visit but still would be frightening and unexpected. 

In life we have 'sinkholes' of sorts that happen unexpectedly and send us to our 'emergency room' which is at the feet of Jesus. Unexpected events such as deaths, finding out a family member has a drug or alcohol problem, being fired or laid off, finding out your son or daughter is gay, being told by a parent he or she was remarrying after having just lost a spouse, being given a terminal diagnosis, failing to get into a school you had hoped for, being passed over for promotion when you clearly expected it to occur and many more things. Stuff just happens and life goes on. We deal with things the best way we know how. What do you do when life has unexpected events happening? The first thing is to not lose control but to pray and ask God what He wants you to gain from the journey you are now on. Don't try to figure things out but go to God. Pray. Search the scriptures daily and realize you are not alone.

Now is the time to not think God has forgotten you but to know He loves you and everything is going to be okay.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus when things around me seem to not go according to what the life was I envisioned I still trust you and know you love me and have a plan. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Listen to the following praise and worship song to help you start your day. Be blessed to be a blessing.
