It’s easier to rejoice when everything is going great
When bills are paid
Tummies are full
Everyone is warm and safe
It’s harder to praise God in the midst of uncertainty
When calls keep coming from debt collectors
When rent hasn’t been made
When the power is threatened to be shut off
Tears take hold and there’s nothing left to do
It’s hard to see past that number.
Not even enough to move if we have to.
I tend to go to worst-case scenarios
Seems silly, but that is where my mind goes.
Help me to remember:
To remember the ways you have provided
To remember that you are trustworthy
To remember that you are faithful
To remember that I am not alone.
