What Now?

 The other question that I ask myself too often is “What now?” This usually comes about when my day is not going as I planned. Yesterday is the perfect example. Hayden was off, I was planning on running all kinds of errands while he painted a bedroom. We have planned to paint no less than three different times and every time someone has gotten sick. I’m not going to plan to paint again, until we have prayed about it. My attitude could have been “oh no” or “what now?” But, God is doing a work on my thinking. So instead I wondered what God was doing to protect us. Maybe Rachel is not really ready for the big girl bed. Maybe paint would have been spilt all over the floor. Who knows? The point is I could have wasted time asking “What Now?” Or I could rest in the knowledge that there is even purpose in catching the stomach bug. I chose the latter and finished my book for book club and thanked God that Hayden was home to take care of the two kids who were still well. There is purpose even in the “what now?” moments of life. Hang in there and think positive. God is good and He loves you.
