Sunday Sunshine

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad about that. Whether it’s sunny or cloudy wherever you are, know that God is watching over you. My verse of the day is one I know well. I’ve turned to it many times over the course of the last few years. It’s blessed assurance that God the Father loves me and protects me.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. ~Psalm 18:2

That’s a promise from the only one who does not break promises. You can read it again and again, and the promise will remain the same. I’m so grateful that he is on the throne. Many of us are concerned about the state of our nation in the United States with an election season filled with vitriol. Even our children are anxious about what might happen. It’s heartbreaking to talk to middle school kids who are worried about this election. It’s even more heartbreaking when I know that they are not connected to the King of Kings.

Carve out a little time for God all week. Put it on your calendar. We schedule everything else. Spend a little time in prayer and ask for the right words to comfort your children, and pray a prayer of comfort for yourselves. Rest assured that no matter who is elected, God is still on the throne. Rest assured that his will, will be done. Rest assured that the only just ruler has the whole world in the palm of his hands.

May blessings abound!

    Thanks for sharing…We get so busy with life that sometimes we put God on the back burner. I really need to take time out to spend with God before my day starts and even when it ends.

    1. So true, Ashlee. We get so busy with the business of the day and sometimes forget about the one who gave us life to begin with. It’s a good practice to start and end your day with God. Best wishes! ❤

    This is so true. Our pastor preached a message entitles ‘In God We Trust’ for this very reason. I schedule my quiet time with God every morning and it helps me to put first things first. Many Blessing!

    Great reminder, Michelle! I am very anxious and nervous about Tuesday’s election. I can’t believe the day has come to elect our new president. But I am so happy to see your post to encourage me to remember to keep my focus on God. He never breaks a promise because He is perfect and true. Thank you for this!

    What a great way to end the weekend. A word. The election is important, but I agree that it has been pretty consuming and taxing on a lot of people, including me.

    1. It bothers me that we have allowed these people to keep us from enjoying these last few months. Now that we have a new president elect, we need to breathe a sigh of relief and continue to pray. Many are unhappy, but this is our reality. I take comfort in God’s plan. ❤
