Several days ago I was out driving after a particularly difficult morning at work. Nothing new (I have been working thru these same work-related difficulties for quite some time now)and certainly nothing that is huge in the grand scheme of life, but nevertheless, it had been difficult.
Both of my children have birthdays over the next few weeks, so I decided to get out during my lunch break and go shopping for birthday presents. I knew that would perk me up and put me in much better spirits for the afternoon back at the office.
As I was driving I was thinking thru all that had happened and was talking to God about it all. I was determined that I would place it all in God's hands... let Him handle it all and fully trust Him. It seems like I have just kept on placing these same frustrations in God's hands over and over and over again thru the course of the last year or so, but once again, here I was doing it again. I'm sure there is a lesson here for me.... maybe I keep taking it back and that is why I have to turn it over once again.... maybe there is a lesson here in perserverance for me..... maybe a lesson in patience. Or, more than likely, all of the above.
As I pulled into the Toys 'R Us parking lot it seemed as if these words just popped into my head out of nowhere,
"My God is so big,
so strong and so mighty,
there is nothing that my God can't do!"
Wow! What a great reminder was given to me in those moments... all in the words from a children's song. My God is big and he is strong and he is mighty and there is nothing in my life that He cannot or will not handle if I just place it in His hands. Whatever lesson there is for me to learn and wherever it is that He is leading, He can handle it and He can and will do it!
How thankful I am that my God is big and my God is strong and there is NOTHING that He cannot do!
