To begin the series I’m including gift ideas for that Christian woman on you shopping list (or maybe for you, if you’re looking to treat yourself).
I can only begin to imagine the heartache this dear family is experiencing, and although you may not know them personally, I felt led to share their story with you.
To those who know us personally, it isn’t a surprise to know we’ve been struggling. The move from Active Duty to civilian life has not been an easy experience. There have been more bumps in the road than either my husband or I ever expected.
The wild fires in the Amazon, Siberia, and the Canary Islands; Hurricane Dorian heading toward the Bahamas and the Eastern Seaboard–the people affected by this are in need of our prayers this morning.
Now, granted, this particular chapter in the Psalms actually deals with David’s repentance after he sinned against God with Bathsheba, but I find that meditating on it when I am depressed or anxious often helps to alleviate some of the struggle.
To that end, I’ve decided I need a focused plan for keeping more connected to God before joining in fellowship with others at church.
It might seem like our situations are more than we can deal with, or we might have more stress than we think we can survive, but God knows what he is doing. All we have to do is turn to Him.
