How do I Deal With the Troubles?
Kathy Gabler — I awoke in a funk. When my eyes opened, the weight of unresolved situations and unanswered prayers was already smothering my hope for the day. I sat up and said, “Father, I’m not going to whine and list the stuff that is squeezing my heart. Neither will I foolishly demand that You do something quick or I quit, but I do honestly want to ask: How should I think? How do I deal with the troubles in my face this morning, long-standing issues that have not the slightest evidence of even being on Your radar? I see no hint of things in motion or even the slightest chance of change. What do I do?” He answered immediately, “Stay still and stay thankful.” His answer was both sudden and surprising, but the instructions were clear. I embarked on a journey that morning, one of those unmapped trips that bring you to intersections you did not anticipate. I was about to discover that some foundational concepts in my Christian world, like peace and trust and faith, connected in ways that I had never realized.
