Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. – 1 Chronicles 16:11 NIV
My husband has a big family, so when we spend time visiting, I keep a close eye on my son, because there are lots of people around, and I don’t want him to get into trouble.
We can seek the Lord’s face in the same way that we seek our children’s. His face clams and centers us. It is difficult to be angry when we are looking at Jesus.
It helps to have a friend who is strong who can lift heavy things for us. The Lord is the strongest friend we have, but we sometimes forget to ask Him to do the heavy-lifting of our problem solving. He can solve our problems better than we can; all we have to do is ask. Amen.
