When something breaks down or goes wrong, I sometimes have thoughts of blame. Even when I don’t have all the facts, my mind engages in negative reasoning, imagining worst case scenarios.
In those situations I need the Lord to help me realize that no matter what is happening, He is with me. My awareness of His presence enables me to put everything in proper perspective and experience His peace and joy.
The calming effect of knowing He will make every situation work for a positive outcome is immeasurably valuable. What, just moments before, seemed like a calamity of huge proportions miraculously becomes a simple ordinary event.
I am supremely grateful that the fellowship I have with the Lord grows increasingly more delightful in every adversity.
