This is our grandson. He's five month old. The doctor recently told his parents that Maddox needed to wear a helmet for about a month to protect the soft spot in his head. It just melted my heart to see him in the helmet. Looks like a little football player, doesn't he?
It started me thinking how life sometimes gets in the way. We're going along our merry way and then find out we need a helmet, or surgery, or insulin, or chemo. These changes can be frightening, life-changing even, but they can be avenues for a new you, a better you.
I'm not talking about a Pollyanna attitude on the outside. I'm talking about a heart change where you allow God to encourage and strengthen you through the process and you learn to see the good in it. After all, Romans 8:28 tells us He's working all things for our good.
Not always easy to do. Some days are frustrating as we adapt to a new situation, but we'll get through it one day at a time.
I don't know what you're facing right now, but I want you to know that God is with you every step of the way and He will see you through. If you're struggling with a new situation or problem, ask your friends to pray for you. That's why we're all here, to encourage and help one another. If you'd like us to pray for you, just let us know! Sisters lift one another up!!
So enjoy your day, no matter what it brings, because God is with you!
