Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Wednesday’s Word! I love knowing that you come to Chicklit Power to share the power thoughts He gives me throughout the week. Grab your coffee and come on in. I can’t wait to share this truth with you!

So just over a week ago now, my husband and I went away for a business/pleasure weekend in Las Vegas. I don’t know how he felt about going away, but I was truly looking forward to the getaway. As we drove into the city, I couldn’t believe the addition of more hotels since our last visit, just a little over a year ago. Driving down the strip I couldn’t help but think, what is this; a contest to see who can build the biggest, out-of-the box, most lavish and luxuriously beautiful hotel?

Anyway, we checked into our hotel room, unpacked our stuff and headed off to dinner and hopefully find a couple of our friends we were meeting. The highlight of the evening was where we went to dinner – Chef Ramsay’s Pub and Grill in Caesar’s Palace. Wow, talk about amazing food! It was even better when we received our entire meal for free because we waited for over an hour for our entre! The weekend had begun!

Saturday, after our lunch break and an amazing first half of the conference we came for, we received a phone call that truly shook the solid ground we had achieved in this time of our lives. This isn’t the time or place to talk about the contents of the phone call but suffice it to say, at that time, it hit us hard, so hard that both George and I panicked because of the possible ramifications.

It was that phone call that reminded me that no matter what happens in our world, in our lives, to us, because of us or in spite of us, it doesn’t knock my/our Father off His throne.

After the phone call, we stood there trying to wrap our minds around what had just happened, several of His promises came flooding to the forefront of my mind. I turned to face George and put my arms up on his shoulders and looked into his eyes. I confessed my fears of how this could change our lives for years to come, but I also knew that God would use this. I knew that down in the deepest crevices of my soul. It’s a truth that I can’t and won’t deny. I told him, “We could either panic, or pray but we better do it together.” That’s our word for today and hopefully all of our tomorrows:

The bridge between panic and peace is prayer.

Think of a time when you received news that had all kinds of potential to rock your world in a way you didn’t want to swing. How did you handle it? How would you handle it at this point in your life?

Make it a great day!
