Second Look Saturday - 6

Summer -- The source of so many happy plans and photos. It's meant to be a carefree time where we take life a bit easier and spend our days with the people and things we love.

Yet, Mike Dobes' post "Summer Plans With a Twist" reminded me that this can be a melancholy time for so many of us. Whether it's the family separation encountered by divorce or the disappointment of the season not turning out quite the way we had planned, Mike has some sage advice.
"Be encouraged that no matter what your summer might look like, God has plans for it. He is sovereign, He is for you and He desires to invest wholeheartedly into the life of you and your family."
That is such needed reassurance that we can too easily forget!

Is your summer painful? Our God is a redemptive God. He can help you formulate a new strategy to lift your spirits for the days ahead.

Reflection Questions:

  • How much are you trusting God with the life of your child?
  • What do you cherish about your family time together?
  • Are you investing in your marriage or other significant relationships in spite of difficulties?
