The word today is STUCK.
I am participating in a 31 day challenge to bloggers everywhere to write for five minutes everyday in October. This challenge was issued by Kate Motaung’s link up. Join me everyday as I chart our progress (in 5 minutes) on the unknown adventure with a known God.
My first thought that came to mind on this word, was a negative one.
I thought to myself, “It is getting cold and we are stuck here in Toledo.”
My husband said we would be gone by October 1st. But of course, the Lord is the one who orders our steps.
We probably would have been gone by now. However, my teenage son tried to run away with his girlfriend because he didn’t want to move away from her. He was already on probation so he was court ordered to go to a residential program that lasts 45 days. And so we are stuck in Toledo.
However, when I went to church this morning with the word stuck on my mind, the pastor said, “We need to be stuck in truth and love.”
Normally that wouldn’t have stood out to me if I wasn’t listening for the word stuck. I mean really who wants anything to be stuck on them?
But I got to thinking about that kind of stuck. I want to be stuck in love and grace every single day, no matter what comes my way, what storms hit my house, or what unknown wind tries to knock me over, I am stuck in His love. I am stuck in His grace and there is no other place that I would rather be.
