Keep Calm

Im not a worrier by nature...I guess I have just seen God answer so many prayers at the 11th hour that I am always confident that he will come through - even when it looks pretty hopeless at times.  That's not to say that I never have any anxiety, I do.  I look at my circumstances and wonder how in the world will it all work out?  Ever been there?  Are you there now? What do you do in those situations?  I have no other hope than the word of God.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18  So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Even in the mess...I keep calm and carry on. There is a quote on our fridge from a Caedmon's Call song Table for Two
Well this day's been crazy
but everything's happen on schedule

And my husband added the words..."your pain in planned" right above those lyrics.  God is not surprised by any of our "messes" or by our pain - they, in the end, are meant to mold and transform us.  Take joy in your mess.  Hold tightly to Jesus for HE is our calm and HE will help us carry on.
