How are you today?
How are you?
I’m so aware that many in the Zeo family are being shaken right now.
It seems we’ve had a torrent of really tough health issues in just the last week alone, aside from the many other pressures are feeling.
It’s hard. Really hard. Hard to experience. Hard to understand at times.
It’s never God’s will that we suffer. Jesus makes it clear that God’s plan is that we have life and life in all its fullness.
But we are in battle.
Not everything is as it should be.
Which is why Jesus commands us to pray. Daily.
To lean into God, even when we live between miracle and mystery.
As I shared a week last Sunday, when we find ourselves in time of shaking we have a choice to make to pursue God and partner with Him.
Here’s how the Psalmist encourages us in the midst of shaking times in Psalm 16:7-11…
“I will bless the Lord who guides me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.
My body rests in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead
or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.”
Let’s make a fresh choice to hold on to God today.
Jesus, we need you in our shaking.
Be our rock. Our fortress. Our refuge, Our hiding place. Our peace. Our strength. Our comfort.
