in the middle of work and worry rests my oh-so-familiar friend stress.
and i'm not the best at managing the presence of this friend.
my answers to kid-questions get shorter. my head gets fuzzier. and old fears rise up and haunt.
today i did my best to stand firm. to stand on the white(ish) tile in my kitchen and remember the truth.
in the middle of work- beautiful work- i remembered aloud:
"i have trusted in the steadfast love of Jesus;
my heart will rejoice in the salvation He has given.
i will sing to the Lord,
because He has dealt bountifully
- taken from psalm 13:5-6
and it's true. my blessings are bountiful. His hand is present and evident. there is nothing to fear.
nothing to fear.
