Make Me Steadfast

I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the LORD, do all these things.

Too many things swirling around my mind.

Grace's U.S. immigrant visa interview this morning...did I ever realize what a complicated procedure this is? Just because she's adopted by Americans doesn't automatically make her American.

Josiah's homestudy appointment this afternoon. Josiah's court hearing on April 17th.

Moving out on Saturday. Yep, moving out. It's happening. The landlord is bound and determined to knock down all our internal walls and build them again. Can't be disuaded. So, we're moving. To short-term housing that is way too expensive but we don't really have a choice.

He says 1-2 months...we're doubling that and hoping it's not even longer.

Moving...moving...what to take? What to store? Can't take apart the house yet because the homestudy is this afternoon. Can't take the dogs with us...can't leave them here...

Too many deadlines...too many details...and a daughter who is going through a disobedient stage...

And then there's all the bad news. Aren't you getting it too? Too many people losing jobs...too many people I love who are struggling. What's next? And I'm guessing the worst is yet to come...and afraid to open my news page every day.

These are uncertain times. But is anything ever certain?

Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail

They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

He is good, and He is in control.

You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.
