God reminds… instantly…

Frustrations with a loved one… one on whom I’m to pour out grace… but after weeks… months… there appears no visible change…

Driving out of the driveway… I yell a prayer to God…

I just want to beat him…
Will You wake him up…


The car radio on… as usual… and as soon as my tirade is complete… I hear

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


An instant reminder… for a frustrated… angry… impatient… mom… a Word from Him… Philippians 4:4-7…

God… He knows what you need to hear… and will not waste any time… an instant reminder… the welling tears… the hard frown… replaced with a smile…

Yes… the Lord is near…

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18 ESV
