"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1
A new library book, "Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School", was definitely in trouble. But as i saw it, the title was wrong -- the trouble in front of me wasn't from a school, but a home. Hannah took the book home to read. And, her pup devoured it... tearing it to shreds. A more accurate title for the book now is Hannah and Puppy N. Trouble at Home... and parent pays the fine.
Troubles, we all have them... at home, at school, at work, at church. No one is immune. The important question is how we handle trouble when it does come our way. Like the child who left the book on the floor with her puppy, we too have a Parent we can confide in with the truth. A Parent who is able, willing and eager to come to our aid.
Thank You, Father, for loving and caring for us in the good times and in our times of trouble... even when our actions or words are the actual source of our trouble and pain. How blessed we are to call You, Father!
have a thank-filled day!
