My husband and I picked up a new hobby a couple years ago.
We began bicycling. On a tandem.
Two things I appreciate most about this hobby: 1) We do it together, as a tandem works best with two people, and 2) We have some of the greatest conversations while peddling on those two wheels.
This week while on a new-to-us trail, we got to talking about our world today, and what’s going on in it, including the headlines of possible future terror attacks.
Headlines like those shake me to my core.
But as we talked while we peddled, even though today may appear to be alarming and unnerving times, we reminded each other God is still in charge. He sees it all. It’s not beyond His grasp. His plans are for good. He is trustworthy.
We don’t need to fear. We have built our lives upon The Rock.
Those people who are listening to Me, those people who hear what I say and live according to My teachings—you are like a wise man who built his house on a rock, on a firm foundation. When storms hit, rain pounded down and waters rose, levies broke and winds beat all the walls of that house. But the house did not fall because it was built upon rock. Matthew 7:24-25 The Voice
This truth is an anchor for my soul.
This settles and calms my heart.
Friend, what causes your knees to tremble? What makes your nerves rattle? What do you see or hear that rocks your safe, secure world?
Whatever it may be, remember the foundation you’ve built your life upon. Recall Who is in charge. Allow this truth to anchor your soul.
Relax, knowing you’re on solid ground. Rest, knowing God has you.
No matter what happens today, this week, this month, may you and I live in this blessed assurance and redeeming freedom.
Will you pray with me?
Father God, thank you for who You are. Thank you for being in control of all things. When life seems to be spinning out of control, You still have it all in the palm of Your hand. Thank you. Father, no matter what happens today, I humbly ask for You to remind me I have nothing to fear with Jesus as my solid foundation. Help me to continue building on Him, and share Him with others. I love you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Blessings to you!
