MEDIA MONDAY | INSIDE OUT

When life turns you inside out, is your first prayer to ask God to change your circumstances? I know that’s often what my prayers look like.

It’s been one of those months….again! July was bookended with two hospital stays for my mom and pneumonia for my dad. We were all moving at a pace that didn’t leave much time for planning. I found myself asking God to give me clarity of mind to take the next step.

Day by day, I shifted from housekeeper to cook to care giver for each of my parents. Pushing down any fear or worry and just doing what needed to be done in the moment.

In moments of overwhelm it’s easy to ask God to change our circumstances. To change the outcome and to just make life easy. This weeks Media Monday by Micah Tyler shares how we can ask God to change us, not our circumstances, so that we can handle the things we are walking through. This is where our strength lies; where our dependence and trust in God comes from.

Change doesn’t have to be scary. God has set our hearts aside to be different. Empty us Lord of our fears and worries and fill that space with your spirit of trust.

  1. Sometimes, we have these certain fears, that make change appear scary. I trust the Lord and speak to Him, to try to resolve the underlying issues and continue to talk to Him, until I work through these fears. God always wants what is best for us, our healing, love and strong faith to assist us in working thru everything with Him. He is waiting for us, we have to silence everything and spend time with Our Lord.
    The song is awesome!!!
