Worrying, over-thinking, stressing over the outcome of things that are beyond our control; struggling to stop the waves from crashing over us in one of life’s storms; attempting to slow down or speed up the ticking hands of time to savor or skip through our circumstances to avoid pain … all of these things are useless, frustrating, or impossible.
We can’t stop or control the various things that life throws at us. We can’t foresee what’s to come or how to best get through our current trials. But we can trust the One who knows, who understands, and who loves us. We can place our burdens at His feet, breathe deeply, and take advantage of the restorative gift of rest.
While nothing in this life is certain … God is. Rest in Him.
Well, looks like it has actually been a whole year since I last posted. I can’t believe it. I thought it had been several months, but didn’t realize how much time had passed since I last shared on my blog. I apologize … again. It has happened before when I allowed other things to take up my time, but I promise I’m going to try to do better … to make this a priority. Encouraging others is important to me; but I can’t just say that, I need to act on it. Of course, I may not write a lot every single time, but if I can share even a brief message or thought with one of my photos a few times a week, and it touches you, strengthens you, or helps in some way, it will be a blessing to me as well. I pray that you will be encouraged here.
