This is my view as I sit at my desk. This is what I look at when I'm struggling to find the right words, the perfect turn of phrase. This is what I see when I look up from my Bible, my prayers, my work.
I love it, my little arrangement of reminders, things that define who I am. The candle tells me I am to be a light. The jacks set reminds me of the day God made himself real. The TRUST plaque is a continual admonition to remember Who's really in control. The picture of my kids that makes me so happy, speaks to the mercy and grace of a God who created some amazing people I've been privileged to grow with. Great reminders of God's goodness.
But today, as I looked up from my desk to the top of my file cabinet, God revealed something new. I worry about, stress and pray over my kids more than anyone else. I feel their burdens, their pain. I want to make everything wonderful for them and yet I can't. I fret over their futures, their choices, the trials they are bound to face. How perfect that the word TRUST sits right before them.
Thank you Lord, for daily proof You are on the job. Thank You for simple reminders.
