Order Is Required

Good Evening Fam,

I hope that everyone reading this is in good health and spirits tonight.  With all the rain occurring in the Raleigh area, it can get gloomy after a few days, but we know that this too is the work of the Lord!  Thus, we have to give thanks for the rain, even when you have to walk your dog in it (am I being that transparent? *lol*).

As a matter of fact, I was walking my dog tonight and the rain was pouring and the chilly wind was blowing.  Today had already been a tough day and I had been at a point to where I felt like I could no longer do "this" any more (this being me trying to guide our family out of what seems to be a horrible year career, financially, & health wise).  I finally just threw my hands in the air and said "Lord, I give up.  You take the reins because I cannot do this."  Net/Net, I've tapped out...submitted wholly....I need help.  At the time, I was in my own world and had no awareness of my surroundings, but I now wonder what drivers thought as they passed by me with arms outstretched, walking a dog in the cold rain?  They probably thought I was batty!  Oh, well they have NO idea about that moment!!!

We always say we are with Jesus, but all of us probably try to maintain a little control over what happens in our lives.  Unfortunately, life doesn't always go according to the scripted plan we have in our brains.  So setting pride aside, I have to pass this thing over to a better driver.  The good thing is that I KNOW He is a better driver.  Have you ever been in the car with someone who was "driver challenged"?  Did you feel comfortable enough to go to sleep with them behind the wheel?  I think NOT!  Hey, I'm just getting to feel comfortable enough to go to sleep with my wife behind the wheel *LOL* (Love you hun ;-)).

Seriously, when you turn things over to the Jesus, He can place all things in order if you let Him.  I am trusting that He will do the same for you as well as myself.  I will leave you with Psalm 37:23-26. It says,

"(23) The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. (24) Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. (25) I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.  (26) He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed."
Be easy family and have a good one.
