A Wife Loved Like The Church

Everybody Panic!

The girls have been watching a lot of tv lately. And while I am not one to use tv as a babysitter {as a general rule} it has come in very handy while packing. They have watched and re-watched the same Word World episodes several times. In one episode the animals keep coming across situations that are out of their control. They immediately say “Everybody panic!” and run around like crazy. Then one animal says “Let’s just stay calm and think things through.”

Julia has been saying “Everybody panic!” for the last couple of days. Each time I have to laugh, because she is saying exactly what I am thinking. As our move date is rapidly approaching I can’t help but think things are not going to come together as we need. Our movers are coming on the last day {instead of today}, we still have several last minute things to organize, making sure that we celebrate Julia’s birthday {which is tomorrow}, along with keeping my heart in check about our family’s future. Every day God is reminding me of His truths, that He is in control. It is a comfort to cling to when I just want to yell “Everybody panic!” I’ve realized, this move has really stretched my faith and forced me to rely on God when so many things are out of my hands.

Here are the latest verses I’ve been holding onto:

“They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.” Psalm 112:7

“Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” Psalm 103:4

Your verses really spoke to me today. I have a great big decision coming up and God pointed me here for patience and trust. Thanks.

We enjoy Word World over here, too; in fact, I suddenly have the theme song stuck in my head. Thanks 😉

Anyway, I wanted to say that I hope you have the opportunity to “stand still and see the salvation of the Lord” over the next few days! (Ex. 14:13-14)

Sara – I’m glad the verses spoke to you! Reading through your post, it sounds like you do indeed have some big decisions to make. I pray that God gives you clear direction on which path to choose.

Cindy – I’ve had the song stuff in my head for weeks! 😉 And Exodus 14:14 is one of my favorite verses ever!

That verse in 112 is one of my well-worn verses, Sarah!! Thanks for sharing!
