Mightier than the thunder

Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea – the Lord on high is mighty – Psalm 93:4

Here I sit – in my cluttered school office – doing what I love, what I think I’m called to do – teach, disciple, and love on teenagers. At this very moment, someone who is not me is dressing my daughter, getting her breakfast, and will care for her while I’m gone.

Also, school? Not just school. But virtual school. How is that supposed to happen at my home when I am at my school face to face? How can I manage Anne’s schooling when I am teaching other people’s children away from my home?

I can’t. I just can’t.

The seas have lifted up, Lord, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves. Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea – the Lord on high is mighty. Psalm 93:3-4

    Good Morning, Kathryn,

    No, you cannot be two places at once, Sweet Mama, sigh.
    Yet there is One who can.
    He’s not even limited to being in two places at one time. He can be EVERY place at once. Not only that, He can be inside as well as outside of everything….inside her planned lesson and inside Anne, and inside those places that make things make sense. And while He’s inside those places He can be inside you as well as inside your lessons and inside your students……and somehow, He makes it all make sense.
    Keep breathing, Mama. Keep doing what’s before you….and doing so in His strength while you simply let Him do all those things He does best. And yup, far easier said than done.
    He knows your heart and angst. He knows Anne’s needs, desires, hopes, dreams and inner processes. He knows what Anne is capable of, and He knows how to bring it all about.

    Peace be still.
    You both, are Daughters of the King.
    You could not be in better hands.
    He is there.
    He is here.
    He is.
    Breathe.

    Love always and forever and lifting you up with love and thanksgiving, and a grateful heart.

      Thank you, Lu! God has provided amazing caregivers for Anne. That’s the beauty of helplessness – it fosters a richer community ❤️
