Good morning.

From time to time we all face a curveball.

"Curveball" in baseball is a delivery in which the pitcher causes the ball to deviate from a straight path by imparting spin.

For most of us "Curveball" is something which is unexpected, surprising, or disruptive.

The big question is, what is our default setting in dealing with a curveball, when we are gripped by anxiety?

"ń Boer maak ń plan!" (A farmer makes a plan.) This probably is the most common response to a curveball. I'll make a plan. Most of us put on a brave face to keep our friends from really knowing what we are going through.

As followers of Christ we have an amazing privilege of letting God speak to us through His Word.

Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

Peter says, "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

David tells us to "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken."

(Psalms 55:22)

We can, like the psalmist, ask God: "Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell." (Psalms 43:3)

So, when life's curveball comes our way, we turn to God, listen to His prompting and apply His principles.

Have a good day.

Good morning. Here we are at Thankful Thursday, again. As a matter of fact every day of the week should be Thankful day. It is easy for us to wonder where God is when life throws a curve ball our way.
