When You feel Out of Control

When You feel Out of Control

Last week I was worried about Michelle, my wife. She was in Orlando, Florida with Hurricane Erma targeting her and about 800 to a thousand people in the music and Radio Industry.

I know I needed to Trust God with her wellbeing. I found out for the first time in my life, my loved one was out of reach, not safe. I couldn’t help her. She was totally in God hands.

It’s easy to say you’re going to do trust God, but saying it and living it are two different things. At one point, I literally felt helpless.

Have you ever felt like you were in a similar situation? Circumstances dictated where you were and did not allow you to help or be in control.

Maybe you’ve had a similar experience, where circumstances made you feel out of control. Call, or go on line at kswp.org/prayer or kswp.org/praise and share you Story and the outcome.

God is always so good to me! As I sought His Word, He filled me with a peace… it passed all human understanding. There was no earthly reason for me to calm down, yet, I did.

He gave me this, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

Michelle flew home safe the next day (Saturday)!

When I was  kid the sure for boredom was my mom said, “If you can’t find something to do I will find something for you.” that was code for chores LOL but even the best mom may want some NEW ideas to keep your ankle biters busy!

Some of my unplugged favorites are 
Have a sidewalk chalk art show
Write a skit and perform it for a “Dinner Show”
Read a book “To” younger siblings

For your tech savvy teenagers

For your Helper/Money Maker
Offer them some spending money for doing EXTRA chores
Let them help an elderly neighbor

Give People What They Want

It’s a common phenomenon: You’re flipping radio stations when you pause to listen to a pop-rock song, and then think, possibly in horror … “Wait a second … is this … RELIGIOUS?”
