Just a Thought

Today’s from Sandra Samoska, writing at Outnumbered. It’s a great reminder to put our trust and reliance in God, just like we’re told in Psalm 124:8, ‘.”


thought comesOur help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth


Samoska says


Sometimes I fall into the trap of thinking, I’ll have peace when…


…it’s summer.


…this project is done.


…this relationship is fixed.


…school starts again.




But then I remember,




my circumstances don’t determine my peace.




Instead I’ll take deep breaths


I’ll be still and know.


I’ll give thanks.




And I’ll remember that I’m not supposed to be the one in control.


That’s God’s job, and He’s got this.”



This week, I hope you can turn some of your control over to God, and let Him help you find peace.


Have a wonderful week,
