I don’t know where this pandemic finds you, but we are in a time of quiet. I know everyone isn’t in that space. My schedule has changed dramatically. I was supposed to be in Hungary for three weeks, starting April 1st, and my schedule was supposed to be pretty hectic leading up to that time.
So, here I am. Here most of us are. And, as I watch spring unfolding around me, I am thankful that God is always tweaking my perspective. He knows what I need and sometimes He makes us lie down in green pastures.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever. Psalm 23
Below is such an amazing song. I just love it! I hope it becomes a new favorite for you too!
Today, let’s pray for those who have wildly new routines that cause an incredible amount of stress in their lives. I am thinking of those families who have children with differing abilities that take extra care and planning and adjustments. My nephew has autism and he is just now adjusting to this major change in his schedule and life. ~ Liz
One thought on “At the Cross”
Liz , thanks for your post, it is calming. Such is life during a pandemic, we are unsure if we can find the necessities, then have to break the stay at home order to find them. Choices are not easy right now. Compound that with trying to deal with confused children, it is trying. My neighbor was shocked when his employer informed him he will no longer have a job.great timing on the employer’s part, his is a necessary job and they want to replace him with cheaper costing employees. Wait for further information on that, Alex is Hungarian descent like we are, he works hard is responsible and is very upset, can’t say that I blame him , Yet he wants to come over and fix my telephone system so I will know when someone attempts to call me. Yikes!! Relying on God is he only one we can rely on. His words are the foundation of the multiverse. it used to be called the universe now it is proven to be even bigger than we imagined. We are facing an unseen enemy and are unsure of how to go about living on a daily basis, so much has been disrupted by our collective disregard for our environment, that is how this all started. I sincerely hope we all remember that if our environment isn’t taken care of we are at the mercy of new diseases. Stay well dear friends, all the best. ake joy from the new season, it is something positive in all our lives a quiet voice from God.
