I awoke about 4:30 am rehearsing the list of “to-do’s” in preparation for our Christmas party for my husband’s team of about 20. They would come knocking in about six hours. I ask the Lord if I could move the list from my head to paper before I sat down with him. The Gentleman that He is said. “No problem and while you are at it, go ahead and mop the floor. It will dry while we talk.”
I made some tea and began to mop the floor. All the while, more things to do encircled my little head.
Stop. Breathe. I heard gentle voice, “Everything you really need to do could happen in about 30 minutes.”
I recalled 1 Corinthians 15:57. It started playing in my head like I was hearing a tune from my Echo, “But thanks be to God, who give us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” Over and over, I heard my victory march. I gave the day to my Lord and peace entered through his comforting words.
What do you have to do today? Is it big or small? Is it a hard task or easy? Does it seem impossible? Does it matter? No, because thanks be to God, no matter what it is, He has given us the victory over it! Glory!
I enCOURAGE you to march the victory march today with me over whatever obstacle you may be facing. Sing out loud, “But thanks [be] to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” Grace and peace to you.
