..............Skating on thin ice..................
I think it has to be one of the most helpless feelings in the world, to know that your car is moving and you can't really change it's direction or speed. It's just sliding. Sometimes you can use your driving skills and get it under control again, but sometimes things happen very quickly and there's Just. No. Way.
Sometimes it can feel that way in our lives. We start to feel frustrated or angry at someone or something, or we get stressed out about a situation, and things begin to slide right out of control. We sometimes forget that we have an Almighty, loving God Who is just waiting for us to call on Him. So often, we forget that we will never have absolute control over our lives, but that our loving Father is always in control.
Sometimes it takes a patch of ice to make us remember this.
What are we struggling with today?
What things in our lives are frustrating us, angering us, and scaring us? No matter what, we have a God that loves us so much He is willing to take away our burdens, to forgive our sins, and to deliver us from the pain and suffering we are skating on:
What do we need to do? Simply stop and pray. In His perfect timing, He will deliver us, for nothing can separate us from His great love.
