"We fear change"
As much as I hate to admit it, I am a creature of habit. For the past 13 or so years, my daily routine has been pretty much the same. Get up the same time every morning, shower, drink coffee, drive the same route to work, spend the day listening to people complain about broken motor homes, drive the same route back home.
Last spring everything changed. Nothing is as it was. Employed, unemployed, employed again, unemployed again, employed yet again, employed part-time. Then Sherry lost her job in October and will be employed again shortly. On top of all this, both of my incredible in laws have fought with cancer. We have lost thousands of dollars that we were putting away for retirement, the election debacle, and on and on.
As I sat in our mid-week service tonight it sort of overwhelmed me for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm not in control, or maybe I've lost confidence in the system, or maybe there has been so much to learn that I can't keep it all straight sometimes. In our service tonight, it was very, very quiet. I needed that. I just felt God as He was settling me down and reminding me that I don't need to be in control. He has it covered.
I'm in good hands...His.
