“Praying this is a season of restoration. Sometimes it’s about swallowing our pride, owning our own part, and saying a real, live “I’m sorry.”” – Beth Moore
Restoration. So many hurting right now. So much loss in Texas. So far most of my family is okay. One cousin is washing and drying clothes for those in need. Another set of cousins rescued some people in their canoe. Everyone is doing what they can with what they have.
Everyone has something going on. Every day we have the opportunity for restoration. The sun rises everyday whether we see it or not, no matter what we are going through. Harvey has placed this in real time with lots of things that need to be done. First, waiting on the water to recede so that clean up can happen. Second, ripping everything down to the foundation. Third, rebuilding.
It is the same in anything we go through. Some things are more devastating than others, but we all have something that gets destroyed, rips through us, and we have to rebuild. Most of the time the hardest part is letting go to get the let the new in.
I feel this way with my anxiety. It is something that I have to psychically push my way through it. I know that staying calm in a situation is the best. With my anxiety, most things appear to be a huge mountain, and in all reality, it is probably more like a mole hill. A gentle bump in the road to slow down, take a breath, and just be okay.
Hoping all is well wherever you are.
