It’s a helpless feeling, isn’t it?
Leaving loved ones on the stoop of hospital doors, entrusting healthcare workers to fill in the gaps we want to fill but can’t.
Lives lost, dream weddings postponed, jobs eliminated, and the inability to enter health facilities with loved ones being admitted, are just some of the situations we find ourselves in these days.
Several weeks ago, my stepmom took dad to the ER for a high fever. Saying goodbye at the stiffly guarded steel doors only to return alone to her car and wait was one of her hardest moments.
“The worst part of life is waiting. The best part of life is having someone worth the wait.”
When Jessica Brumley penned these words, she wasn’t referring to the same kind of wait, but the words still ring true, don’t they?
Choosing to see blessings beyond our circumstances is an act of faith.
Recently, I started creating sensory-based pauses (mini-devotions) for my subscribers to enjoy while in specific spaces. One month is it was the garden. Last month, a picnic. For each of the five senses, I offered a simple prompt to help push the pause button and focus on the goodness of God that stretches far beyond a steering wheel.
The simple act of focusing on God turns an upside-down world right-side up.
Today, “A Pause While You Wait” (including an inspirational page to color) is my gift to you. Feel free to share this post with your circle of friends because sometimes we don’t know we’ll need it until we do.
“You will keep the mind that is dependent upon you in perfect peace, for it is trusting in you.” Isaiah 26:3
