A Normal Day??

What’s that?

I can tell you that, by default, “normal” means something different for everyone. And sometimes normal isn’t, well, normal. Depends on who you’re asking. 

Some people prefer chaos. Thrive on it actually.
Me? I prefer normal. Routine. Predictable. Typical. 
Days where I have a set schedule: 
mornings = writing
lunch = hubby
afternoons = catching up on household chores or marketing.

Lately, life is anything but normal. 
But that’s OK. Because…

God orchestrates circumstances and events to order my day. 
If I had gone to Target instead of agreeing to keep a sick grandchild, would I have been involved in the auto accident that occurred about the same time I would have been there? Hmmm…
Have you considered how He might cause your day to go off track ~off your track, not His~ so you could have a normal day? 

We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)

Thank You, God, for overriding my plans. Help me not to be irritated at the change in my day, but, rather, to welcome and to praise You for it.

Has God orchestrated circumstances or events in your life so you could experience a normal day?

Overwhelmed by tough times?

Can’t see a way out? 
Don’t believe Satan’s lie. That’s not the case. Ever.

Tough times are part of the journey. 
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

Tough times help us grow. 
“There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine…” (I Peter 1:6-7 NLT)

What can you do to break the bondage?

Focus on God first, and then others. 
Take a step forward. 
Know God’s heart for you, and trust the road He has you on, 
even when you can’t see where it leads. 

Are you overwhelmed by tough times today?
