Your Monday Muse featuring Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes_August 2021

Guest Contribution by Layne Van Heel, Editorial Intern

On the days when your car won’t start and you’re running late for work.

On the days when you forget your homework.

On the days when milk is spilled all over the floor.

On the days when everything feels like it’s crashing down around you.

When you’ve lost control, and you don’t know what to do next.

Just say, “Amen,” and let go.

Lift up your hands and say, “So be it.”

You can’t control the storms in life.

You won’t always know what’s coming behind you.

So why not let go and let the One who always knows what’s coming take the wheel.

He WILL protect you.

He WILL NOT give you anything that you can’t handle with His support.

He will hear your prayer

And He WILL bless you for trusting him.

So let go and say, “Amen.”

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:25-27

Father, thank you for your blessings and for shining your Light in my life. Help me to be a light that shines bright for you on the good days and the not so good days. Give me grace for myself and others, and show me how to set aside my frustrations and disappointments and be a blessing to those around me. Amen.
