I don’t know if you’re seeing it around you, but I’m seeing it around me in spades: life can dish up the unexpected. And not only that, life can dish up the unwanted.
It’s like someone has ripped whole chapters out of the book for our life we wrote. Instead, we’re staring at pages we never saw coming.
How are you going to do this, Lord? Are we going to be okay? Our anxious thoughts start to spin at the unknown and unwanted that lies ahead.
I’ve been living in a chapter I never saw coming either. And we certainly didn’t want it. But six years in, I’m at a place where it’s no longer a moment-by-moment battle against the anxious. There’s still a lot of unknown, but there’s also so much Known.
When we find ourselves in the unknown and unwanted, we need to hyper-focus on the truth over our feelings.
Today, I’m sharing at Risen Motherhood. I’d love you to join me to see God’s truth in your unexpected Chapter 2.
