Tuesday Matters- April 26, 2022
I was lonely. God knew. But I also knew 1 Peter 5:7 too, where Jesus says, “Give Me all your cares. I care for you.” Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.
I remember our teenage son Joey let me have a movie date with him when I was feeling out of sorts, and I picked “Pride and Prejudice.” I know. Halfway through the movie I asked; “Joe, will it always be this way?” What mom? I was referring to a bruise on my face that just wasn’t disappearing like I wanted but deeper down I was asking; “Would this season of wait and lonely weirdness ever leave?” Joey replied, “Mom it will always be that way. It will never change.” And then he grinned in his sweet Joe way and said, “Mom, you’re being silly. Of course, it’s gonna be fine. It’s just a bruise. Why ask?” Because I need to hear out loud there’s hope. So, I’m talking to you too. There’s hope It will get better …everyday.
