Trust and obey has been my theme for 2010.
In the midst of challenging circumstances, the Lord is giving me opportunities to ...trust Him.
On Wednesday afternoon, a transformer exploded in the backyard. With triple digit temps in Phoenix, we lost all power for four hours. Both Greg and I were in the midst of our work (on our computers, of course) and they suddenly shut down. All power was gone!
For the next few very hot hours we watched as cranes were lowered into the yard to remove and then replace the burned out transformer.
Frankly, Greg and I didn't have time to deal with this. But we were told that we were very fortunate. Exploding transformers can be very dangerous.
So instead of being annoyed, I choose ...to be thankful.
How interesting that I was just reading a devotional from Sarah Young's "Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence". Let me share a short excerpt with you:
"I am the firm foundation on which you can dance and sing and celebrate My Presence. This is my high and holy calling for you; receive it as a precious gift. Glorifying and enjoying Me is a higher priority than maintaining a tidy, structured life. Give up your striving to keep everything under control -- an impossible task and a waste of precious energy."
I think the Lord has a sense of humor.
Do I like to maintain a tidy and structured environment?
But He is giving me plenty of opportunities to ...trust Him.
Through each challenge that comes my way, I make the choice as to how I respond. And I'm choosing to trust Jesus.
Blessings and love,
