When Stress Arises . . . Pray
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
It had been one of those weeks where several things in our home were breaking down all at the same time. The dryer quit working, our sink drain was overflowing due to blockage and our garage ceiling was showing signs of a leak in our attic. It was a week of problems and stresses on top of a full schedule.
I have to admit praying was not the first thing on my mind. Once I felt my frustration rising and my temper shortening, I was convicted I had not given our situation over to the Lord.
I am so thankful I have a God who cares about the laundry piling up, plumbing issues and leaky roofs.
Dear Lord, thank You for being there when life issues happen. It brings great comfort knowing You care about the little things. Forgive us when we do not come to You first.
