So…I was going to write about some more NICU life lessons today…
…however, as you may have heard, the game-plan got rained on.
Thanks to a washer malfunction, a waterfall formed in my house for the first time…leading to a half-inch of pipe water sloshing from laundry room to front door.
Of course, of all the seasons for this to happen, this happens now.
I mean…I know when it rains it pours. But c’mon, life, this is ridiculous.
Seriously, dear God, I know you’re up there! Can Lys & I catch a little break…maybe?
Oh, wait. That’s right, Lord. You are the break when we need to brake. How foolish of me to think otherwise. When we need to stop and breathe, you are the breath in our lungs. I only have to look so far as the ventilator in front of me.
And as the bells and whistles go off again, I’m reminded to the extent we endure crisis with character and fear with faith, to that extent our capacity to trust in You increases.
Knowing this, I thank you for not only trusting me and Lys with Jubilee, but also with smaller-scale (yet still significant) troubleshootings through which we can model perseverance to our neighbors, both literally and figuratively.
Per 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 (see below), reset that big picture once again so I may be good to go by your goodness.
As for you, my friends, when physical, emotional, and/or relational pipe bursts in your life, count in all joy, consider what God is expanding in your life, and ‘baby-step’ your trust in Him as you walk with Him.
It always takes a journey and often a village, but take it from a broken man. If all you can do is say, ‘Yes’ and roll with it, you have won…
…in Jesus’ name.
You have won.
