I simply cannot adequately describe my morning to you. If you had one of those nest thingamajigs, reality TV would have hit bank. Forty-something wife/mom tackles the THING.
The THING—seemingly simplistic—but profoundly difficult that has plagued me for more than a year. A YEAR. And this morning—problem solved. With the guidance of the Lord Jesus, something stuck is now unstuck and I don't have enough praises to shout to the heavens in thanksgiving.
It's a household issue that is trivial.
It was a lost marble that rolled around in my mind for months and months and months. For whatever reason, today was the day of reckoning. The solution involved bloody knuckles, a sweaty brow, actual levers and pulleys, and acrobatics. I'm not being figurative. Literal. LIT-ER-AL.
And now, the items have been set free, and as a result my mind has been loosed.
My Lord has intervened for me in the big stuff. The life and death, oh my dear God, please, don't let this happen, my heart is breaking kind of stuff. And I am grateful.
God cares about the little, teeny, tiny stuff in our lives, too. The minute. The minuscule. He gets it. He saw my actual tears this morning as I scoured the kitchen for the one thing that might work.
He loves me.
He really loves me.
Our son and I took time to read a Scripture and pray this morning on the short ride to school. We don't always do this. The verse:
The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”Exodus 14:14
Bless my soul, He sure did. And His promise—He always will.
