We had a recent photo shoot in the office! Thank you Ryan for capturing such wonderful shots. It has been a joy these past couple of weeks getting to know these girls while working to extend the outreach of NeighborLink.
Beth and I journeyed to Yummee's Bakery today for some reflection time. They really do have some delicious cupcakes! During our time there I was reading from my book Where There is Love, There is God by Mother Theresa, and I stumbled upon these beautiful words, "Put your hand in the hand of Jesus--walk along with Him all the way. We try to hold something s--we are human beings; that's why people need to hold, that's why we hold the hand of Jesus."
Many moments in our lives tend to get overwhelming. The flood that takes over the basement, the bad brakes in the car, the siblings bickering, and let's not forget the mortgage bill. All of it seems to hit us at the same time. If we try to get through it all by ourselves (which is usually the case), then we may never truly feel at peace admist the stress. However, if we look to grab hold of Jesus' hand he will guide us through it. He will bring us peace.
So, if you are going through hard times. If you are dealing with financial trouble. If you are struggling to find your way. Grab hold of Jesus' hand. Look to him first above all else and it will all work out in the end. It may not work out how you planned or desired, but it will work out exactly how you needed it to. God has a way of doing that.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
