It is beautiful in S. California. It is odd to have green lawns and flowering bushes but I do love it. All of this is in addition to nice, warm days.
Have you ever had those moments when you had to be patient and yet inside you were filled with anxiety knowing you need to do something and yet there isn’t anything to do but wait? I do have these every so often. I’ve been somewhat this way with my youngest and her car dilemma. This morning’s scripture reading in Colossians is telling me no less than 4 times to be anxious for nothing and instead find peace in waiting. It is one thing to need to be patient, but it is entirely different to be patient while resting in God’s peace.
Paul is telling the Christians of Colossi to live in the new creation God gave them. God was reminding me of this same thing as I was reading this. The freedom and peace that passeth all understanding does not come just from waiting. It comes when we wait on the Lord resting in the assurance of His love, timing, and complete control of our lives. If you struggle with any of this I hope you will join me in living in God’s peace and assurance today. Give Him all that is making you anxious. How good our God is when we only give Him a chance.
