I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

~Phil. 4:13

Do you believe God hands you ‘tests’? I’m not sure I do. I strive to file these under the heading “5h%t happens” and set about making good things come from them.

Will you pray with me, please?

Bad_things_happen_glitterBeautiful Builder,
I know you called the worlds into being and set the earth spinning. When bad or hard things happen around me, I’m not sure these are the works of your hands. I know you can do all things, but I have a hard time imagining you playing chess with Satan and letting him mess up Job’s life. Is that how you are? I don’t know, but I know you are amazing!

Loving Lord,
Remind me to focus the energy you give me on things I can control. Let me work diligently on making situations better. When I run out of resources, help me to lean on your strength and talk it over with you. Remind me that I, along with your other creations can bring your kingdom to come on earth. Humble me enough to remember to make paths of love and peace.

As I look at a crisp spring morning and hear birds who’ve returned after winter, I thank you for the seasons of life. I am grateful for the resources you’ve built into me and for the beauty all around me. Lord, I love you so much.

In Jesus’ name,

To God be the glory!
