I catch myself sometimes dreading the day ahead. This morning was like that. I had two hearings and had not received some of the information that I needed for either one of them. I got the information for the first one about five minutes before the hearing started. I got the information for the other one probably two hours before, but after rearranging everyone’s schedule at our house to accommodate the second hearing, I got a phone call that the date had been changed and no one thought to tell me. That was about 10 minutes before that hearing was to start.
It was frustrating. Yet earlier in the day, I realized that I was dreading it, thinking it was impossible to get it all done, and I was able to change my attitude. Rather than complaining, I began giving thanks for the opportunity to do this work and putting the children into the Creator’s hands.
My recent prayer has been that the judge will make a decision that is best for the children whether it is what I am asking for or not. It has been a wonderful prayer, because I have been seeing that happening. I don’t know if it always will, but I am ready to trust the One who says to welcome the children.
Thank you for joining this Community of Prayer:
