Easy Button


You know Staples's Easy Button? I want one of those. Not to buy office supplies. I want one to deal with difficult things in life.
A long day and too exhausted to cook supper? Push the button.
Your groceries are running out before your budget is? Push the button.
You finally save up enough money to purchase floor for your house and you find out your foundation has to be repaired. (Grrr!) Push the button.
Hurt AGAIN by the same person? Push the button.
Unfortunately, life isn't easy and there isn't a button. In times like this I am glad that I have my Bible. The cover is worn, the pages are frayed, but the words are ever true and God's shoulders are forever comforting.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall. - Psalm 55:22

Yeah, that EASY button would sure come in handy some times. Glad we have something better though, a God that guides us through the hard times.

i lift my eyes up to the hills, where does my help come from? my help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth ps 121:1-2

The verse Dr. Wifey posted is God's way of saying how to push the button.

Oh my goodness! My boss just bought me an easy button! And I'm with you--life is never easy! But God somehow manages to get us through it!

It is those days that I am so glad that I have highlighted verses! Sometimes it is just encouraging to read through the verses that you have highlighted along the journey of life.
Have a wonderful Tuesday my SITSter and sister in the Lord!
