I hit my Pandora button, and cranked up the music as I was browning hamburger for last night’s dinner.
I’m sure my son, who was sitting on the living room couch, thought his mom had lost it.
Plumb’s Need You Now came through the speakers and immediately began to change the discouraging mood I was in.
It was actually a wonderful Monday, but my thoughts of all that was wrong began to weigh me and my attitude down.
I’ll give you a sneak peak…
- Our treadmill needs a new electronic board. It won’t run without it.
- Our dishwasher stopped working on Saturday.
- It sounds like our fridge is on it’s last leg.
- There’s something wrong with the power steering in Bill’s truck.
- The tragic, accidental death of a member of our small community over the weekend continues to weigh heavily on my heart.
I won’t bore you with the rest of the list.
I started to share all this with Bill, and he humorously put me in my place. “At least all out cats outside still have their heads.” (If you’ve seen Dumb and Dumber, the part where “even our pets heads are falling off!” tops all that’s going wrong in Harry and Lloyd’s lives.)
Yes, it could be worse. All our farm cats’ heads are accounted for. Thank God.
And Plumb’s song helped put my thinking back on the right track.
God, I Need You Now.
He’s my answer to my everything.
I was reminded again of Joshua 1:5.
God is with us always.
And when I call out to Him, He answers.
God, I need you now.
When my thinking gets stinking, and all I see is the wrong and not the right, calling out to Him is the solution. He helps me see I have more right than wrong in my life, and without a doubt, everything is going to be okay.
I don’t have all the answers, and I don’t know how all of this will work out. But I know it will. Because God is with me. He will never leave me nor forsake me. I can take that to the bank. (Literally.)
And so can you. No matter what you’re going through today, God is with you. He’s got you. He’s got your situation. Trust Him to handle it. Because He can and He will.
Soak in these words and truths from Plumb’s video of the song. Go ahead, crank it up and let God minister to your heart.
God bless you, friend. He’s got this. Let’s rest in that truth today.
