The Abnormal Normal

I understand that God understands that our normal routines can be interrupted at any given time. So how well do we handle it? I wish I could say that when things happen out of the norm, which seems to be daily anymore, that I respond well with a chuckle and smile and go about fixing them and return again to our regular broadcast being no worse for wear. Yeah, not so much. Perhaps it’s my own brand of OCD which wants control over all things under the sun in my world, or perhaps the stage of life where I am – tired a lot and have become just a cranky old codger!! Whatever the reason, I struggle with that and try not to explode and become someone I wouldn’t want to be around if I saw them in public.

Life is full of routine. Life is also full of abnormal. How we react and respond is totally an individual struggle that needs to be put into God’s hands daily. From the time we open our eyes in the morning until we close them at night, we need to place every thing into His hands. The good, the joyful, the perfect, the imperfect, the sadness, the loss, the struggle. In all of it, no matter how we are stretched to our limit, there has to be a stopping and regathering of our spirit to recommit and refocus ourselves. God doesn’t fail to respond, He will calm our spirit, He will let us know His grace is sufficient in our time of need, no matter how often those needs come. Be still, as much as you can be, and know that He is God and He understands life.

God is never surprised when our normal is hit by abnormal, He is always cool under pressure!! ❤️
