I was awakened from a deep, peaceful sleep this morning by the mother of all leg cramps! What had moments before been restful sleep, became utter chaos!
I was looking forward to getting a few extra ‘winks’ since there was no school today…but alas, that was not in the picture!
I finally worked the cramp out by walking…and might I add…by much prayer. I heard myself calling on Jesus to take the pain away; at that point, I woke my husband up. So much for his peaceful rest….
With my leg still aching, but the cramp subsided, I descended the stairs to start the day as sleep was no longer an option.
I went straight to my Promise Box, and told God I really needed His help and protection today. The promise I drew said this….
“He which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” -Philippians 1:6
I silently read it, and then heard myself say aloud, “Thank God YOU are going to perform a good work in me…’cause You know Lord, I can’t do it by myself!” Let’s face it…none of us can do anything unless God does it through us! We can’t even take our next breath unless He orchestrates it!
Take a look at the poem that accompanied the verse…
“Commit all your griefs and ways into His hands, to His sure truth and tender care, Who earth and heaven commands.” -Unknown
Take your hands off the wheel, and let God do the driving today!
