A New Normal

It’s been nearly a month since I last posted. I’ve missed those little slices of conversations with you. Life has a way of steamrolling over us and flattening any plans we’ve made for ourselves. Proverbs 3:5-6 tell us “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” I’m so glad that He has shown me the way each and every moment of the day since that heartrending day of my dad’s fatal stroke.

Life is returning to normal—a new normal, yes, but normal. When life is caving in, grasp God’s promise that he will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6) and keep a tight grip. He loves you; he’s watching over you, and he’ll work it all out (Romans 8:28).
