This morning I came across a familiar scripture that I have used often in my life. But right now it is especially important.
Last night, my grandson, little Stephen, was set to sing at Carnegie Hall with The Millennial Choir and Orchestra. But then—boom—the power went out in what was the worst power outage in over 10 years in New York City! During the power outage, the power of Christ was revealed as they began singing in the street!
When I first held my grandson and looked into his beautiful eyes, I saw such wisdom and amazing peace—Then the grandmother in me, like I’m sure in all of you too, immediately wanted to shield him from every bad thing there is in the world. As I held him I pondered on this subject and started writing a few thoughts down that I wanted him to know from his grandma. And... Voilà, my Sunday message, was born too!
As I sing “Climb Every Mountain” I remember the challenge being Maria in the Sound of Music was. As difficult as things can be I know the Lord will never give any of us more challenges than we can handle because that’s His promise to us!
We are built to live life to the fullest. And that means having adventures and challenges to help us experience the “magic moments” in life.
