One year I bought a new plant called ornamental mustard. Beautiful leaves, pretty colors–different from anything I owned. I wasn’t sure where to plant it, but I knew we’d find a place for it. New plants always perk up the garden, especially in Fall, when some things are fading. I found a temporary spot on the back porch until I decided on its permanent home. But I forgot something vital about that plant.
Perfect is a matter of perspective. I get it. Every morning, I wake up refreshed. Okay, most mornings. Same objectives. The same desires. And the same hopes.
Is finding hope in impossible situations like Job loss, financial crisis, rebellious children, disappointments, rejection, unexpected illness, possible? Absolutely!
El Elyon, our God Most High, when gusty winds are blowing around us, make our foundations strong. Rebuild our courage and strengthen our might when everything goes wrong.
