Are you getting tired of your kids?
What’s for lunch?
What’s for dinner?
What are we doing today, tomorrow, the next day?

Those questions hit you before you even have your first cup of coffee in the morning or at least by noon.

Life certainly happens during pandemics and nonpandemics.

I would imagine that we have all taken on multiple house projects during these quarantine times to keep us busy and productive.

How is your joy? I came across this devotional book, Jesus Calling, the other day and stumbled onto this thought that I would like to share with you. The book shares from God’s perspective.

“Let Me help you get through each day. There are many possible paths to travel between your getting up in the morning and your lying down at night. Stay alert to the many choice-points along the way, being continually aware of My Presence. You will get through this day one way or the other. One way is to moan and groan, stumbling along with shuffling feet. Or you can choose to walk with Me along the path of Peace, leaning on Me as much as you need. There will still be difficulties along the way, but you can face them confidently in My strength. Thank Me for each problem you encounter, and watch to see how I transform trials into blessings.”
29 You are my lamp, O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light.
30 With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.
31 “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
32 For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?
33 It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. (2 Samuel 22:29-33 NIV)
