Have you had those mornings when you wake up to what seems like a wind storm in your own home. Words, attitudes, demands, complaints are being thrown at you in every direction. Time outs are being delivered before the first sip of coffee, engine lights come on days just days before you are making a road trip and the dog is barking his head off for whatever reason! Please tell me you know these days? I’m not the only one…right?
What do you do? Isn’t easy to just be blown with the wind? To just go with complaining, the crying? Or to fight back with your own wind storm in anger and frustration? Yes, I’ve tried this. But two wind storms don’t really help the situation. It just gets more windy. Shocker.
So I’ve learned to fight. But I fight by holding on. I picture myself in these moments holding on to a tree with all might. The wind blowing in every direction but I am holding firm to that tree, my anchor. And I pray. I pray for strength, peace and hope. For He is faithful.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
Hold on my friends. He is with you always. Especially in the wind storms. He hears your prayers. Just hold on. And get that coffee brewing ASAP!
