Stop Sign

Have you ever had a time in your life when you are going full blast and all of a sudden, SCREECH! Life, or the Lord throws up a situation that makes you land flat on your rear? Here I am, moving out of my house in two days, and I have two toddlers to take care of meanwhile. Yes, I have the majority of the work done, except for those things you can't do until the last minute, like packing our clothes for Mom's, packing John's clothes for his interviews next week, and his apartment furnishings. Things that no one else can really make sense of. Here comes the stop sign.

Saturday I started cramping really bad and aching in what felt like my ovaries. I cramped all night and all day Sunday. I started spotting some yesterday, as well. I called my doctor in Louisiana, who delivered my first two, and his nurse said STOP packing. Let someone else do it. That someone else being my husband. Bless his heart. He has to work full time. How in the world will all of this get done? Plus, I have to drive to Louisiana on Thursday. This is NOT A GOOD TIME for this to happen. My nurse feels like my uterus is over-worked and rest should take care of it. I pray she is right. Meanwhile, I am fighting the urge to get up and pick up the litter from the weekend. Sundays always leave my house in a wreck. Why couldn't this have waited until next week??

Early last week, during my Bible reading, I came across this verse: Matthew 6:34, "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." (evil being trouble).

That verse really stood out to me and I even marked it and wrote a note out beside it. It has been going over and over in my mind as I have tried not to worry about John's job, and where we will be, what we will be living in, etc, etc etc. I think the Lord dropped me a little handful on purpose that He knew I would need greatly. Isn't He great? What do people do who do not trust in Him and lean on Him daily? His grace is sufficient for every need, and he knows just what we need when we need it. We just have to take things day by day, and trust him to provide the answers when we have none.

I love it when I get a scripture dropped my way. It sounds like that one was straight for you. It will 'do' to trust in God! You take it easy--this too shall pass. You will be back up and at it in no time. Rest!

Hey Amy, I hope that everything is going good, you really need to take care of yourself. Remember God always has a plan.
