Pen 4 The Lord

Seeds of Strength Hope & Encouragement

Time for another Five Minute Friday. The prompt word for today is ADAPT.

Many times we hear the phrase, “Just adapt to the situation! Before you know it, it’ll seem like home.”

“Really?” Is what you’re thinking, right?

A few weeks ago, our board of elders made the decision to speak to our lead Pastor.  For whatever the reason, unbeknownst to us, the outcome was, he resigned.

Ouch! Heart- wrenchin grief has taken our congregation by surprise and to a whole new place.

ADAPT, you say? Easier said than done.

The scripture that’s comes to mind over and over, is 2 Corinthians 12:9, But he said to me ,” My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

A few years ago, before I had a full revelation of His grace, I only quoted the scripture.  But when I faced a time of helplessness, I discovered what it was for His grace to carry me where I was too weak to go.

He allowed me to ADAPT to circumstances beyond my own control.

So here I stand again with my Church body. Ready to face unforeseen circumstances knowing that only with the supernatural grace of God, can my husband and I carry on.

In such a sticky situation, being glued to the Lord is the only way to go!

What about you? Have you been asked to ADAPT to something or somewhere that is not on your radar? Well, even though I know it’ a difficult place to be, don’t try to handle it alone. It’ll only bring added stress. Stop right here, and remember to ask God in.

Welcome His Holy Spirit minute by minute and day by day to take you just where He desires you to be! Stop…
