Summer break has arrived and we are ecstatic! We celebrated the last day of school yesterday with a squirtgun fight when the kiddos got home, and boy was that water cold.It was worth getting soaked to see them enjoy celebrating, though.
In addition to the first day of summer break (for us anyways), it’s also time for Grace and Truth! Can you believe it’s our 20th week already?
Last week I noticed a common theme among many of the posts I read – trials in life and how we deal with them. So, I have two features for you today, although they were all good reads.
Lisa Murray shares about a wounded bird and what it taught her about being trapped.
“No matter what place you are in today, no matter what painful season holds you in its uncomfortable and tortured grasp, there are three things you can do to embrace healing in the middle of your pain.
Johanna from Devoted to Maker compares trials to tidal waves that just keep coming. She pinpoints a variety of waves in life – some I hadn’t even thought of.
“Are you barely treading water only to take a quick breath before another trial pulls you under? Have you been pleading with the Lord to help you overcome the trials so you won’t completely drown? “
Click the picture below to read the rest of Johanna’s encouraging words for surviving those waves.
Whether you find yourself just exiting a storm, right in the midst of one, or just about to enter one, keep in mind that “His eye is on the Sparrow.”
He watches you and me.
