I’ve spent several days feeling like I’m in a fog, like I’m walking through mud. I couldn’t really place what was happening until today. Today, I spent most of my day outside, and off the computer. Then I came in and made our favorite dinner- Cabb and Saus– and we got on Zoom with our church family and prayed and ate dinner. When that was over, we watched Lego Batman. It was almost a regular day.

Nothing changed outside, there’s still a pandemic, and the world is still scary. But something changed on the inside. Today, at least, I found my smile again. I found some peace that passes understanding.

I put my vision board back up and I’ve been thanking the Lord for our trip that is planned for September. I’m thanking Him that my husband and I will have a wonderful life together, and a life-filled retirement when he retires. I’m praising Him for what he WILL do. And I’m asking Him to show me the areas of my life that have been changed due to our schedule opening up and help me be intentional when all of the activities pick back up. I’m asking Him to help me prioritize what He would have me prioritize. And, I’m asking Him for peace. I’ve been praying for a Passover- and boldly covering my family with the blood of the lamb, and those prayers are starting to take root in my soul and my mind and give me the peace. It’s an amazing thing that happens when we give it all to God.

I challenge you to listen to the song above, and think on some things today. Let the lyrics really sink in…

When darkness tries to roll over my bones
When sorrow comes to steal the joy I own
When brokenness and pain is all I know
Oh, I won’t be shaken, no, I won’t be shaken

My fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love
My fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love
My fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love!

Shame no longer has a place to hide
I am not a captive to the lies
I’m not afraid to leave my past behind
Oh, I won’t be shaken, no, I won’t be shaken!

‘Cause my fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love
My fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love
My fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love!
Oh, I’m standing

There’s power that can break off every chain
There’s power that can empty out a grave…
